Hey guys, appreciate any help you can give me. Recently been delving into the world of driver updates due to getting skyrim. However I am now unsure what graphics card I actually have! As far as I was aware it was a ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650. However in the Catayst Manager the card AMD M880G with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250 has appeared alongside the 5650. I used Belarc advisor and again both cards appeared in the display section of the report.

Do I have two cards? Which should I be downloading a driver for? AMD autodetect seems to want to download it for the Radeon 4*** series, is this correct?

If you guys need anymore details I'll post them, I'm on a  HP 64-bit laptop, running windows 7!

Thanks for any help, I always thought I was fairly computer literate until this week!

Install GPU-Z and see what it tells you the card is.

Its always been right for me.

Tried that and it still detects both! Do I have two cards? Can anyone shed some light on this? I'm pretty sure I've got the HP Pavilion dv7-4045ea but all the druver auto detect tool detects the 4*** series in stead of the 5650.

Again it displays both. So how do I know which drivers to install? Should I download drivers for both or just the more powerful?

Appreciate the help.
