ATI Radeon HD 5450 Driver problem!

First of all, hi guys

I made my own pc, using a ASUS P5N-D MoBo; Intel 775 3.2 ; 3 GB DDR2 Ram memory -3x 1 Gb (2x 800mhz, 1x 553mhz); ATI Radeon HD 5450 1GB DDR3; LC-Power LC6480S Scorpio-480W PSU FULLY Modular, I have Windows Ultimate x86 currently installed on my WD HDD 40 Gb ( i use that drive only for the system!)

The problem is when i try to launch Need For Speed The Run... When i run it an error appears. It says that my current graphics card driver is 11.2; and i have to upgrade it to 11.7 before playing the game.
Ok.
I've downloaded AMD catalyst 11.7 but after installation it says that windows doesn't support tis operation... I've installed AMD catalyst 12.8 and the same problem comes up again... I've tried to do the next thing :



What should i do in order to install the missing driver???

hi,

uninstall and re-install Need For Speed The Run.
Also I'm not sure that the HD 5450 can handle this game...

I am 100% sure it works because i have seen it on youtube several times... Not on the Max settings, but it will work. BTW i am playing Test Drive Unlimited 2 on the max settings, and the card is working at 80-85%. Battlefield 3 also works good too.
I don't know should i install the game again??? Anyway i will install it again, but i will also try to install direct x 11 again.
Thanks, i will post the results soon

Re-installed Need For Speed The Run, but the same problem appears again! I have DirectX11 installed.... My graphics card driver is from 1/26/2011. When i check for an update it says that the driver up to date, and Windows won't take no action

Can anyone help?

yes, AMD catalyst 11.7 but an error comes out as i mentioned in the first post. Same happens for AMD Catalyst 12.8. Here is the print screen preview of the error and the after installation window.

try to run Need For Speed The Run with administrator privileges (right click on the icon ---> run as administrator). If this doesn't work, run it in Windows XP compatibility mode (SP2 or SP3)

I've tried to run the game as an administrator but nothing happens... How to run it in compatibility mode for windows XP sp2 or 3??? I don't know how to do it!

Compatibility mode doesn't work neither. I made a print screen preview of the application opening in compatibility mode for Windows XP sp2, sp3, and vista sp2... seems that the driver is the problem...
