The whole ATI software is crappy. 

It uses .NET Framework. Check if the common versions 2 and 3.5 are installed on your system. Then check if the .NET Framework is healthy. There is a checker tool. Search for it on Google.

Please read > http://forums.amd.com/game/messageview.cfm?catid=444&threadid=162109&enterthread=y  this must be done before trying to install the driver suite. Make sure you are up to date on the .netframeworks then re-install the driver suite. Also, after installing 4.5, go to windows update and download the updates for it.

You should probably only use the drivers supplied by your laptop manufacturer for the following reason http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/737-28041SupportforATIMobility.aspx

Nope,what I'm saying is AMD and Nvidia recommend you use the mobility drivers supplied by your laptop manufacturer.due to the fact they are designed specifically for your laptops specific features.

The mobility drivers supplied from AMD and Nvidia are generic.

Here is a quote from AMD driver release notes.

"AMD Catalyst Mobility is a notebook reference graphics driver with limited support for system vendor specific features. When used with Windows Vista or Windows 7, the user experience may be limited or compromised."

I'm sorry, my english is bad, i try to be sure i understand your message.

My computer is a dell studio 1745. Fine.

if I check dell's website; the driver for my studio 1745 graphic card is :

http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/DriverDetails/Product/studio-1745?driverId=PV90P&osCode=W764&fileId=2731094924&languageCode=EN

Release Date: 6/1/2010

 

Should I use a driver from 2010 ?

Dell doesn't list a driver less old than this one, what should I do ?
