I want to update my video card, which I haven't done since I got my laptop a year ago. I'm not very experienced when it comes to drivers, and I want to make sure I get the right one. I'm looking for a second opinion.

I have an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 550v video card, I think it's series is 4650 but I’m not sure.

Catalyst Control Center says it's driver packaging version is 8.742, I imagine that's pretty old.

Is using the AMD Driver Auto-detect the best way to update my video card? It says:
Graphics Hardware: Mobility Radeon HD 4xxx Series
The best driver for this device is: catalyst_mobility_64-bit_util.exe

Is this right for me? or is there another way to update this card.

You can go to the following link to update Catalyst. When you update, it automatically detects your card. Its pretty simple. In fact they just released an update.

You can go directly here to update...

http://support.amd.com/us/Pages/AMDSupportHub.aspx


Once you get there... look for the link... Automatically Detect and Install

Its that simple. Good Luck.

I did that not long ago, it's a dell laptop, and the driver found there was released on 6/29/2010, v8.742, A02. I'm looking for a new version, not the original.
