Hi all,

I have an "ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470" now when trying to update my drivers for this I go via the ATI website and go through the steps of selecting from their drop-down menus
Component Category: Notebook Graphics
Product Line: Radeon HD Series
Product Model: Mobility Radeon HD 5xxx Series
Operating System: Windows 7 - 64 Bit

Which takes me to this page: http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/Pages/radeonmob_win7-64.aspx

I download the 1.1MB file and after removing all previous driver versions I get the attached error that reads:

The version of your graphics adapter is not supported.

Please contact your notebook manufacturer for a graphics driver update

So I went to the Sony website; as my laptop is a Sony VAIO - VPCEB15FG and found myself on the driver download page for my model (http://www.sony-asia.com/support/product/VPCEB15FG) and selected the Downloads tab and chose 64 Bit Windows 7 Operating system, but under Software Patches there is nothing for Graphics Card Drivers. Under Original Drivers the last version for the Graphics Card is 30th of March 2010 which is obviously outdated.

Can someone please point me in the right direction of updating my current Graphics Card Driver for - ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470.

All help is appreciated,
Thanks
