so like many other people ive upgraded to windows 8 from the $15 promo code that i got when i bought it. Its a hp pavilion dv6-6c47cl laptop i just have got the sound drivers working but im not sure what is going on with my radeon 7690m xt. ive found some ways to get it working but none worked. they said about getting the intel one to a certain version to work with the amd and im just so confused. IVe spent atleast 8-10 hours reading forums in the past few days and i cant get my gpu to work. If anyone knows how i'd be happy to hear! Otherwise ive considered going back to windows 7 however i dont have a recovery disk can i use an iso image and still keep my old files?

So you did try the AMD catalyst mobility display driver?

yes it says "AMD Catalyst Mobility cannot be downloaded due to incompatible hardware/software on your computer.

The version of your graphics adapter is not supported.

Please contact your notebook manufacturer for a graphics driver update."

It looks like that HP doesn't have any video drivers available:

I would call HP.
