Windows 7: OEM installed ATI Graphics Card Version

OEM installed ATI Graphics Card Version

I installed the OEM version of Windows 7, which came with all the basic drivers, but looking at the dxdiag box, my version of the graphics card I have is much older than the one on the ATI website.

I have the ATI Radeon HD 2400 - 1GB the version in dxdiag says 8.632
The latest is v9.9

But I cant seem to remove the old driver to update it, and I know this is incorrect, but should I just install the new one?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hi missaaliyah

YES, this will over write the old drivers.

I believe you're looking at it wrong.

The display driver version that you have is 8.632. 9.9 is the ATI CCC package.

I believe display driver 8.632 is from CCC 9.7

9.9 has 8.650, which I am using right now. So you're not far off.

Do you have the CCC installed, or just the display driver? You could update to 9.9 which has the 8.650 if you wanted to, but it's not as far from current though.

It should be possible just to install over your existing drivers with the newer 9.9 ccc, I do it with no problems. You could install the display driver and CCC suite, or just the display driver. Up to you. Just download it, right click on the setup and run it as administrator.
