I naturally began with Google, found this page:
The issue is, I don't know the card's model number, and no numbers on the labels look anything like the models listed in the dropdown. Choosing "not sure" just takes me to a page where I'm on my own looking for the model number.
[quote]The model number or at least the part number will be printed on the barcode sticker located on the back of the graphics card.[/quote]
But I can't find a page that lets me select driver by part number, nor have I found one that correlates part numbers to model numbers. ANY of the above would help immensely.
I found the AMD Driver Autodetect tool and thought, "that was annoying, but here's my silver bullet." Relieved, I downloaded and ran it.
It ran and vanished, and I thought it hadn't done anything. After a couple minutes, a SysTray popup caught my attention, "That's odd, putting the driver detect down here..."
Nope. The AMD Gaming Evolved Control Center (beta)
It's a game frontend. Looks like an amateur version of Steam. It assimilated all those favorites like Freecell and Minesweeper.
Am I on Punk'd? Is this my own version of the Truman Show?
Hate to just rant on my first forum day, but this is insane. Video drivers are either there or no longer made. But I have bloatware on a brand-new, fresh OS install.
