Bad Video Card Driver

Hello, I'm new here. I have a "little" problem. Here will be my Video Card Specs:
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 6470, I can't update driver through AMD Graphics Drivers & Software beacause I'm using SONY VAIO VPCCA2S1E
A friend suggested to install any game, and see what error will it give. Here is the error:
RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 - It made a folder in game directory called GraphFix. This is what I found inside the folder:
Driver : vga.dll
Description : Standard VGA Graphics Adapter
DeviceName : \\.\DISPLAY1
VendorID (*): 4098
DeviceID (*): 26464
SubSysID : -1870589875
Revision : 0
WHQLLevel : 0
DriverVersion(*): 0x000600011DB04001
If I go to the Device Manager then my Graphics Card is being detected as Standard VGA Graphics Adapter.
If I press Update Driver, it says that it is already updated.
So, what to do?
Thank you!

Hi TheEdgeKnife, Welcome to the forums , Go here to download your driver Sony : VPCCA2S1E/W updates | Download updates for VPCCA2S1E/W Sony, like many laptop manufacturers tweak the graphic cards to suit their own individual needs

I updated my driver, restarted my VAIO, but "Speccy" shows this:

You have to install both the Intel and AMD driver (from Sony) for it to work properly.

I installed AMD driver, but Intel has a error: Your computer doesn't meet the minimum requirements.

Just downloaded and had a look at the AMD driver from Sony, and it already contains the necessary Intel driver in it.

That said go to Programs and Features and uninstall any AMD or Intel video drivers showing, and then re-install using just the AMD driver from Sony.
