Ok, this is driving me bat **** crazy.

I have a late 2011 MBP with the aformentioned graphics card, I'm trying to update to the latest driver. Of course, I get that "you have the wrong adapter" nonsense when I try to update...any help? I don't know what I'm doing.

Ahh yes that problem. Annoying as hell. First of all get DriverSweeper and remove anything to do with AMD Graphics and then reboot. Then download the driver, I got mine from here: http://www2.ati.com/DriVeRs/mobile/12-8_mobility_vista_win7_win8_64_dd_ccc.exe. It should be able to install now. Take notice that this is for Windows 7 64-bit so if that is not what you're using then I can provide you with other links.

Well that is strange. It was still up yesterday when I did my update. I did a quick search and came up with this: http://www.x-drivers.com/catalog/drivers/video_cards/companies/amd/models/catalyst/25807.html. Not sure if it's the right one. Either search for a trusted source or be careful with this one.
Thanks a ton. I haven't tried this yet but I'll look into it. What do you mean by trusted source? I don't know of any. I'll just proceed with caution.
I don't see 6770m listed among supported mobile cards, I'm guessing that's what I need to search for?

Trusted source in that the driver is actually a driver. You know how there are some sources where they give you some crapware like driver checkers instead. Ideally yes your card should be on the list.

Links for mobility 12.8 win 8 x64 are broken and I couldn't find them anywhere. Can someone upload them? Thank you in advance.
