ATI Radeon HD 4850 512MB Driver Problem

I've got a problem with my ATI Radeon HD 4850 512MB, When i launch Battlefield 3 or Left 4 Dead 2 it says "Detected AMD Radeon driver version 10.4. The recommended driver version is 11.7 or later. Please update your drivers at before playing the game." So I've tried going to AMD's website and downloading the whole ATI Catalyst suit which is what it offers under the drivers section for this graphics card, and once it's downloaded and it goes through the process of installing i click finish and nothing happens. I can't find the program installed anywhere and the drivers are still out of date. I tried using Steam to update my drivers but again i have this same problem, a complete installation process then nothing happens. If anyone can help me resolve this matter i would be very grateful.

Have you tried first uninstalling the current 10.4 driver before installing 11.7?

I haven't no, but i don't know where to find the driver. Could you tell me?

Honestly if you have the cash in the future I would try investing for the 7000 series cards. 4850 is quite a few years old now.
