Hello, i would like to start off by saying thank you for your attention and care.
Specs: AMD Radeon HD 6550M, Windows 7 64 Bit Acer Aspire (laptop)
The problem first started when only a select few games of mine would work (Bioshock 2 and Civ 5) while others would not work.
I researched and thought that my video card driver may be the problem
I tried to update, but it told me that i was already updated.
I then uninstalled my driver then i restarted and the windows update reinstalled my driver, restarted again. No dice.
I search online and i find that there's a program called Driver Sweeper.
I then uninstall my driver, use driver sweeper to analyze my AMD Display and press Clean
I then restart and come back to find that there is a windows update and so i reinstall from the windows update then restart again. No dice once again.
Finally, i uninstall the driver, restart in safe mode then run the Driver Sweeper and analyze than clean again(this is what a guide told me to do) I knew at that time that i would have a clean video drive so i could install/update (hopefully) the new Radeon 6550 that would help my game work.
I search online and i look for drivers, but none of them work.
Exasperated, i try to go back to my previous settings where i still had my video card but now i cant because the control panel doesnt show any Video Adapter anymore.
The thing is that before when i uninstalled the driver, my Radeon would still show up with an exclamation point, one time i even remember rolling back the device and everything was good
Now i dont have any video adapter tab in my device manager, and when i look online for things to install to give me a driver they won't run because i dont have a video card.
