ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470
AMD Catalyst Driver Version, and Driver History:
- 13.1 Mobility
- 13.1 Legacy
- 13.3 Beta
Windows 7 x64, Service Pack 1.
I have a Mobility Radeon HD 5470. My display driver version is 8.713.3.2000, given thanks to the chipset drivers via Acer.com.
I cannot update without issues. The installers for 13.3, 13.1, and 12.10 do not give me an option for display drivers. Even after running a clean installation, there is still no option. Trying to update through device manager, and selecting the correct installation folder (C:/AMD/Support/XXX), it reports that my drivers are already up-to-date, which is false. I also have a Mobility Radeon HD 4250 listed in DM, which is incorrect as well. I do not have a 4250. The driver version for this is the same.
After updating with 12.8, which does include the display driver option, I get version 9.982.0.0000. However, I am forced into 1024x768 resolution. As well, Device Manager changes my 5470 into just 5000 series, and the non-existent 4250 into 4200 Series.
So, why do the driver suites not have the display drivers listed? Why am I getting issues when updating to those that do have the display drivers listed? And how can I update correctly, so that everything works in the end? I really hope someone can help me with this. As it stands, I never plan to buy another AMD card after this mess.
I do have .NET 4.5.

I have run a clean install, several dozen times.
