Hi, i have a problem with some AMD drivers for my ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 graphic card. If i download autodetect tool from amd.com, it is recognizing, that i have graphic card HD 4xxx. Why is that? And thats give me driver for HD 4xxx series. Also, if I download and install driver for HD 5650 series. I´m getting resolution like 800x600 of my desktop and i cant start any videogames, so i have to uninstall that and install again HD 4xxx driver. I want to install AMD Catalyst 14.6 Beta, so I can play new Wolfenstein, but it just give me low resolution and nothing. Thanks for help.

Nope. It´s same name model, but not same performance.

This is what i have (I hope thats it).

http://www.notebookcheck.net/Acer-Aspire-5553G-Series.33328.0.html

I found out, that i have HD 5650 graphic card and one which is integrated and this one is HD 4xxx series. Normaly is activated HD 4xxx series graphic card, so, when i download autodetect sw from AMD, its just recognized this HD 4xxx, but when i download exactly driver for HD 5650, its doesnt work. So maybe, i should turn off that HD 4xxx graphic card? But i dont know how?

Disable onboard graphics in BIOS, through Device Manager, or a switch that the laptop probably has.

Read carefully the manual, download it if you have to, or just google it.

 

The problem seems to be a driver compatibility issue between the two adapters.

They each presumably need a different driver.

Use only the dedicated (HD 5650), and manually install the latest supported drivers for that, from the official AMD site.

Do not use the auto-detect tool.
