    I'm clueless as to what the proper driver I should be using is. I've got an HP laptop with switch-able graphics (dv6-3280). From the information in CCC I have an AMD Radeon HD 6500M/5600/5700 Series card and an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4200 Series card. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    EDIT: What I'm currently running.


    Driver Packaging Version 8.961-120405a-137225C-ATI
    Catalyst Version 12.4
    Provider Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.
    2D Driver Version 8.01.01.1243
    2D Driver File Path /REGISTRY/MACHINE/SYSTEM/ControlSet001/Control/CLASS/{4D36E968-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}/0001
    Direct3D Version 7.14.10.0903
    OpenGL Version 6.14.10.11631
    AMD VISION Engine Control Center Version 2012.0405.2205.37728

    Welcome to Guru breakableduck :)

    The ones you are running (12.4s), are the latest official ones, so are the correct drivers, however, the 12.5's should be released tomorrow, so they will be the ones you want to update to.

    Get them from here (when they show up):-

    Just select the OS you are running, then download the Catalyst Software Suite.
