Laptop Drivers

Hi,

I have just done a clean install ony my Sony Vaio laptop and want to make sure that I am using the latest drivers. At the moment I need drivers for the following:

ATI 4570 Mobile Graphics Chip the driver listed on Sony's website is outdated so I am looking for the latest version.

I also need a driver for an Atheros AR9285 Wireless Adaptor.



Many thanks

Hi

Thanks for your replies,

I have tried the AMD link to the Mobile Driver and it said that its not compatible with my gfx card in my laptop. Windows update is offering a driver for the gfx card which was released in late Feb 2011 is it okay to try this?

AMD Catalyst 11.4 Release Notes says otherwise. See below.

That's why you cannot download the driver to install it... The web installer cannot recognize the hardware. Download outdated driver from Sony website and install it. Then, use "catalyst_mobility_64-bit_util". Let us know the results.
