I try to run the auto driver udpate thing on AMD's website, but it doesn't work. I have an Asus G7. It's literally like pulling teeth trying to update drivers on my PC. Just give me a download link or something, because the AMD site is usless.

Really? Why don't you download it manually? Follow steps 1-5  I have never trusted the auto thing...and never had a issue updating. I do a clean install everytime. This , of course, is after deleting all the Asus control crap...and there is alot of it.

If that is not for you, download your drivers from here.

I have the same problem with this graphics card, when i try to update it through the device manager list it cant install because of errors. There are no updates for the graphics driver on the ASUS support and download website for the GPU. I tried installing the AMD Catalyst Mobility thing from the first link you provided but the AMD Display Driver Update failed and it was the only thing that failed, plus after i install the amd catalyst control center i cant even open it because it says there are no settings to be configured for the program. I cannot download the second link you provided because my operating system does not support it because my SP1 will not install from Windows Update or Windows website.  Specs: ASUS Notebook G73Jh Series, Interl Core i7 CPU Q740 1.73 GHz, 6 GB RAM, Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit OS, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870.
