Windows 7: So confused about my Graphics card and driver

28 Feb 2010   #11

Windows 7

Ok, so check this out. I went to close my computer down and restart it, and when it restarted it said that my computer OS didn't start or something like that and it asked if I wanted to do a system repair, so I said yes. When it came back the sleep mode feature was back! lol. I don't know what the heck that was all about but something must have fixed it when the dell guy was trying stuff. Though I did reinstall the driver from the dell disk... even though it was apparently the same driver that was already in there... and that the device manager said it was fine. Who knows. Anyways, thats fixed. Now to deal with the Video card.

put the name of your graphics card into a search engine with driver download at the end and it will come up with the right driver

I have an ATI graphics card in my laptop, and on the drivers website it shows a newer driver version available to download for it, but how do I install it? Do I just open the setup file and install normally to update it to the newer version, or do I do it through device manager?
