Ok, so just yesterday I installed a 6970M in my m15x expecting better performance in games, such as Skyrim.  During the process, something went wrong.  I installed everything correctly, my PC recognizes my new 6900M series card but, when I default graphics for Skyrim, it goes to Medium Quality.  Originally with my old 5730M GPU ( way worse than a 6970M) I was getting defaults of High.  The weird part is that AMD says all of my drivers are up to date.  If so, what else could it be?   Did I damage my card during installation?  And maybe my drivers aren't up to date.  Do I need to uninstall my old 5730M GPU drivers?  Someone please help me.

Every tut I have ever read, including AMD, instructs you to remove all instances of the previous card before installing a new one. Common sense. Try this, download the correct 11.11 driver suite for your mobility driver and save. (Don't use 'automatic find and install').  Download DriverSweeper and save. Computer control panel > uninstall a program > amd install uninstall including install manager > reboot > run driver sweeper, select amd display...delete all it finds > reboot. Install new 11.11 driver suite. Reboot
