What is up with my Skyrim textures?!

Yesterday I updated my ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4200 Series to the newest update because apparently it was to fix the no smoke glitch. Well I went on to Skyrim to see most of the textures had missing parts, messed up sky color, all textures were messed up! I downgraded, but that didn't help. How do I fix it?!

I have a Windows 7 Home Premium, 4gb ram & a AMD Athlon II p360 Dual-Core Processor. Also I have a Dell laptop.

By updated your 4200 do you mean updated to latest drivers?? Also part of that problem might be that that is an integrated gpu, really not good enough for Skyrim, what kind of settings do you play on? And have you tried verifying local cache with Steam (assuming you have it on Steam)?

How are you playing Skyrim on a Radeon 4200 is my question.

Skyrim was perfect before the update. I play on low settings with high graphics. Yes It was the latest, then I downgraded twice.

Anyway I'm not sure what you meant by that but I think your first problem is just the fact that you are trying to play on an integrated 4200, but if it worked before the drivers update then just downgrade to the older ones (make sure you uninstall old ones first). And if that doesn't work.. Idk.

Here's the thing, I don't know what to downgrade to.

Ah well what Are you on right now? What version?
June 29, 2012 5:13:45 PM

I think 12.3 or 12.2.

NO!!!! Just found out the same thing happens in Battlefield 2! Missing textures, stretched out buildings ect! So now the only games that work are GTA 4, Minecraft, Plants vs. Zombies and maybe Flatout.

Well they just released 12.6 and 12.7 beta. 12.7 claims 25% performance increase in Skyrim and 6% in BF3, might wanna try that if not I really don't know which driver to tell you to try. 11.10 maybe?

Wow I knew that service was bad but 250mb limit now that couldn't suck more balls than that and it is expensive. :ouch: 
Got skybeam but they are retards, at least no data cap. :sleep:

It isn't that expensive & it resets everyday. You can upgrade. Also it is unlimited for 1AM-5AM CST.

Hmm, at least I don't got to worry and download as much as I like. Average 100-300GB a month :sol:  But speed isn't so great. :pfff: 

Go into safe mode and uninstall the drivers then run driver sweeper. Once that is done reboot into normal mode and installed the drivers that you want. It should fix some of the software related bugs at least.

But... I have the lazy syndrome!
June 30, 2012 7:27:23 PM

Yeah, that's about right. I am very skinny though.
June 30, 2012 10:36:15 PM

Now I am getting the 12.7 beta drivers.

Good luck :o 
July 1, 2012 12:51:31 AM

Yeah, I'll need it with all the crap happening with me now.
July 3, 2012 4:54:05 PM

Nope the beta driver didn't help.

Maybe its time for an upgraded graphics card?
July 3, 2012 5:49:04 PM

No, because GTA 4 is still working.

Have you checked DELL website for proper drivers for the laptop? Most laptop makers mess about the biosses and stuff so that the cards need proprietary drivers to run optimally...
The drivers provided by amd are meant for 'real' desktop graphics cards.

It looks like it does.
