I have sony vaio vpceb46fg laptop comes with ati mobility radeon hd 5650 , I am not able to update the graphics driver as sony support site provide me old 8.672 version and amd official site says its says not compatible with sony vaio ! though i download latest driver from here [http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/GRAPHICS-BOARD/AMD/AMD...] and install it and after restarting my pc when i check the driver version still it showing old one !how to fix this problem ?

first of all why would you download it from some cheap website like softpedia when you could still download it from AMD's website?

i know it is an exe file so what exactly happend after running that file? did it go threw a wizard to install it or did it act like a compessed file and just extracted the drivers to a directory? when installing did you read everything that came up making sure it said it was unable to install?

also since they say it might not be compatible then it may have just installed but nothing happened because of that

i search for the file and got it from softpedia ! and amd does not provide any standalone installer file!

yea i got a wizard that extracted to a directory and then install it choosing express mode ! after install when i click on to see log file its same as previous version

for your 3rd comment i am also agree with you! but if not compatible then how to update it! as sony support site does not provide any latest driver

sony doesn't make the driver or the graphics chip. simply get the driver from ATI which from your previous screen shot shows you have.

Sorry to say it, but welcome to the world of laptop graphics.

Since the standard AMD drivers are not compatible with your system, you are stuck with the drivers Sony provides. If they do not update their drivers, there's not much you can do.
