Windows 7: Updating Display Adapters

Updating Display Adapters

I'm not entirely sure how to update drivers, so I want to double check. I have an ATI Radeon X1200 Display Adapter and I go to the ATI site and on the list of drivers to update X1200 isn't on it. Does that mean that the driver isn't updatable at all or no updates at the moment?

Did you select Radeon or notebook for the product line? I believe you have to select notebook. There is no x1200 listed under Radeon and it is a notebook isn't it? You could also go to the notebook manufacturers website and get the driver for your model there.

Type device manager in search.

Go to device manger. Click on items that you are interested in. If no yellow marker, you can see that everything is working properly

You can update from the device manager.

Where would this yellow marker be? I don't see one so I assume their is no update.

This is off topic but I just ran a Diagnostic Test and my HardDisk Failed the test. What does this mean?

I tried both. X1200 isn't there. Unless I'm on the wrong site.

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't no yellow ! or ? in device manager just mean there are no problems detected with that device. Your driver could still be out of date and the one currently installed is working fine.

I only went as far as selecting notebook, after that it asked for a brand name like Acer or Dell and I didn't go any further. Global Provider of Innovative Graphics, Processors and Media Solutions | AMD

Yes, you are correct. If necessary, you can get updated driver using the Device Manager.
