    How do you upgrade your drivers. Whenever i try it just says i dont have th proper graphics adapter, but my computer has the right graphics card. I am 100% sure i have the graphics card that i am trying to update. My mbp has an AMD radeon 6750M HD

    Run Software Update

    By right clicking the little apple symbol, top left of your screen. Mac's and Pee Cee's are very different in the way driver installations work.

    If software update reports back that you are up to date, then you are. Some here will go looking on the Apple sites for updated drivers, and that should be your next port of call:
    http://support.apple.com/downloads/

    oh... you are install Windows drivers... make sure your driver download says it supports the 6750M ... sometimes certain drivers straight from nvidia will mess up.... thats the wonderful world of Windows.

    you can also get good drivers from http://www.laptopvideo2go.com/ which usually work fine.

    Sometimes manufacturers use a customized version of the graphics card. In this case the only way is to try to find a driver that's been modified for your situation or wait for an update from Apple.

    Read the post above you. You need to remove the old drivers first.
