Okay, So i bought an Acer Laptop mid-November and yesterday i thought of updating my GPU Drivers. So i go to the AMD site and download the Beta Catalyst drivers. I download and install it, but after installation, i get an error that all the components successfully installed but the drivers installed isnt for my particular device, then it prompts a Reboot. After reboot, i cant change my screen brightness and when trying to access Catalyst Controls, i get an error saying that there are no controls that can be changed so catalyst isnt opening. So i go to the official Acer Site and check out the downloads, Under my Laptop Model (Acer Aspire E1-572G) i get this Link that says VGA Driver and vendor is AMD. So is that the official Download?

My Laptop Specs are as Follows:

Acer Aspire E1-572G

Intel Core i5 4200U @ 1.60GHz to 2.30GHz (I think Dual Core)

4GB Ram

AMD Radeon HD 8750M with 2GB Dedicated VRAM 

Please help!

Hi

 

Besides the amd driver, looking at your specs I see 4GB ram,I'd upgrade to

8 GB,,I assume there is one open slot in your notebook,,dual channel increases system performance, right now everything is 64 bit wide,,dual channel 128 bit wide, system gets more done sooner, I had 4gb upgraded to 8gb,,my graphics improved much,,I have Elite AMD A8-5550M +8550G.

 

Cheers
