    I downloaded the 64 bit forceware 185.50 driver from the pinned thread above, everythings fine and i run the installation using compatibility mode...

    i restart my computer and check device manager, when i look at my graphics card properties under display adapters, the driver tab still says the driver is version 7.15.11.8520 from 12/26/2008

    i tried installing the new driver about 3 times now, and everytime it keeps saying that. am i looking in the right place? how do i know if the driver is updated? anyone else having these same problems?

    oh and when i try and run left 4 dead, the frame rates are terrible and i never have had problems with it before..

    7.15.11.8520
    That is 185.20
    That's how they do naming.

    Anyways, they might have changed something in the new version of the driver that has caused a negative effect on that game. Try another game and see if it's better.

    Either that, or roll back to a previous driver.
