So my driver was stuck at the August version whenever i tried to update it. When i tried to do what the FAQ here said to when installing drivers, it somehow downgraded to the juse 2012 version from the August 2012 version, and i cant get it to update at all. windows seems to think it is the latest version as well.

EDIT: I got ahold of customer service and was able to get my driver updated to 8.982.0.0 with a reset to factory default, which alows me to play most of my games again....but the driver install still wont update to the lastest driver

Pretty Much the Issue is when i went to update the drivers, it wouldnt update to the latest version. I looked in the FAQs and did what it told me to do from the "How to install new drivers" area and when i got back on my driver had actually downgraded to one from june 2012 instead of august 2012. I noticed this when i couldnt run Minecraft due to and "outdated driver error."
