    Hello

    I may have posted in wrong thread before, but I wanted to know if I can download my AMD Graphics Driver from AMD or HP, I downloaded the AMD Catalyst Mobility Driver Verification Tool, the tool mentioned that it is not compatible with Toshiba, Sony VAIO and Panasonic notebooks, when I downloaded it and run it, it says the following:
    message.
    well, these are my PC specs:
    HP Pavilion g6 2071se
    Intel Core i7 3612QM @2.10 GHz
    AMD Radeon HD 7670M 1GB + Intel HD 4000 (Dynamic Switchable Graphics)
    4 GB RAMs DDR3

    also DxDiag only shows that the Intel is installed, i tried GPU-Z, it can read both, I cant use RivaTuner for example, I cant have full control over my iGPU, only the chipset!

    Best to get the driver software from AMD's official download site - driver downloads from your computer manufacturer are usually out of date.

    Hey guys, Thank you very much for these suggestions :) explained a lot of mysteries to me, but yet, how to know that this driver update is compatible with my graphics, whenever i choose from the drop-down menus from the link bassfisher sent, it redirects me to the verification tool, i once used this link: Downloads
    so any thoughts?
    i know i bother you and stuff, so thank you again guys for keeping up with me :)
    i really appreciate this :)

    also I dunt login much these days, got exams and stuff, so my apologies for my late feedback.

    This is what you should see from the AMD site when searching for your driver.

    and as my first post, it tells me the verification tool cant identify the graphic card as AMD :)
