Hi guys, Newbie here.
So i havent played games on my laptop for a while. Im currently over seas so i decided to download a graphics driver update (14.4) to play some games. The driver i had said it was dated to the 2012 update.
I had Downloaded a Mobility 14.4 DD-CCC-WHQL pacakge (i just know its a pacakge, all i know CCC is catalyst control centre. i dont know what the others are).
When i went to Device manager > Display adapters > driver details, it did say i had version 9.xxxx. Id imagine its meant to change to 14.4. but it never changed.
I right clicked ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5400 series (in display adapters) and went uninstall to try and do a somewhat clean install and then rebooted. When windows boots up, a window would pop up saying its finding/installing a driver (just like a simple pnp device). Now it says my driver version had back peddled to 8.850.0.0 dated all the way back to 19/04/2011.
I have tried uninstalling the driver (it would revert back to 800x600) then tried installing the 14.4 driver witout rebooting. still the same old 2011 update.
I had multiple ATI, AMD, ATI TEchnology folders from C:\ and Program Files which i thought id just leave in the rubbish bin that i thought my laptop was getting the old updates from.
Any help would be appreciated on what is happening. Or how to correctly update/install drivers.
