My laptop has the radeon HD 550v in it. When playing games now it tell sme the driver is out of date. I have the latest on there that is supplied by my laptop provider but is not the latest available according to these games that tell me it needs to be updated.
Can anyone tell me where I can find the latest driver, or which it is I should be using?

I tried to go through that but cant find mine in the list, (unless it classes as HD 5xxx or HD 4xxx or one of those?) and when I run the auto detect tool thing it detects it as a hd 4650 and suggests a driver for that instead.
I know the 550v is based off the 4650 so this is probably why but does it mean I can use the same drivers?

It looks like you can use the 4650 drivers.
