Cannot install latest ATI Catalyst driver in W7 on MBP
I have a 2011 MBP with the ATI Radeon HD 6770M. I have Boot Camp installed with Windows 7 64-bit.
Up until today, I was just using the latest Boot Camp drivers, which include an ATI Radeon driver dated 1/4/2011. But then I got a couple of BSODs in Windows 7 while just browsing with Firefox. The crashes were seemingly related to the video drivers, so I thought I should update to the latest ATI Catalyst drivers.
I went to the ATI web site, and it told me to download the AMD Mobility Radeon Driver Verification Tool. I installed that, and it said: "Your computer does not contain a proper graphics adapter."
Seems like some people have seen that message before, and others have suggested to just download the latest drivers and install them. So I downloaded this and installed it: http://www2.ati.com/drivers/13-1_vis...d_ccc_whql.exe
The installation seemed to go well, but then even after rebooting, Device Manager said the ATI Radeon HD 6770M driver was dated 1/4/2011. So the driver never got updated. I uninstalled that driver, then re-ran the ATI Catalyst installation program, and it still installed the 1/4/2011 driver.
Why can't I get the latest driver installed?
After spending a few hours uninstalling and reinstalling video drivers and then doing a repair on my Boot Camp drivers, I finally got the latest Catalyst drivers installed and working. You need the mobility version which you can download from http://www.guru3d.com/files_get/amd_...ownload,3.html
