How Do I Uodate My Graphics Card Driver To A Newer Available Version?

I have an ATI graphics card in my laptop, and on the drivers website it shows a newer driver version available to download for it, but how do I install it? Do I just open the setup file and install normally to update it to the newer version, or do I do it through device manager?

just run the setup file.

you shouldn't need to uninstall the old one first - some people do, some don't.

i don't as i'm lazy...it's up to you.

Use custom installation and uncheck unwanted items.
