The AMD update?

Check Device mgr - post the plate/driver tab... please

Thanks

Windows Update might offer you the AMD driver at some point - it did on my machine. You configured WU so that it won't help you automatically. You have to click on the WU notification and look at the offers, then click download/install. Beats doing this when ever WU helps you.

I right clicked the AMD Graphic / Display drive and hid the update since I knew I installed a newer version. There might be a time when WU catches up to AMD releases, but they're real careful about what they offer in WU.

Yes Bill, the AMD update(14.4), her,s the shot of the device mgr:trouble updating driver for AMD Radeon 6570 HD-driver-tab.jpg
And to be more precise about windows installing the driver, when I restarted my computer it did it automaticaly, there was nothing I could do to stop it, I just saw a message on the bottom right corner telling me that windows was installing the driver

Also when I try to update my driver via the device manager driver tab, windows says the driver is up to date.

Thanks Derek

I'm curious if WU will offer skip AMD version 8.881 to replace version 14-4-win7-win8-win8.1-64-dd-ccc-whql
I was confused the first time WU offered the AMD driver shortly after I updated the AMD driver, both being WHQL.

Ok skip thanks

It's all coming back now
The driver and the package use different versioning

14.4 refers to the entire package.
Your display driver (part of the package) did get updated from 8.881 to 8.961


I think the best thing to do at this point is let the system settle into the changes. We made a few.

The question is - what does the game think. If it suggests a driver update - ignore it. If the game won't play at all, hmmmm maybe after the holiday we can revisit this, but I think you'll be alright.

it's late here and I've been lucky with the network.

Enjoy your weekend.
