ATi Mobility Radeon HD 3470 Problem

Ok so I updated to windows 7 and downloaded the latest driver from the ati website and it all installed perfectly but now its showing in the ccc as hd 3400 and also in device manager which I cannot understand when I have an HD 3470 and when i load most games it says your graphics driver is not up to date and the game is unplayable the quality is horrible and that was just playing and old game beyond good and evil with all the settings on low any help would be appreciated

ATi recommends completely uninstalling legacy drivers before accomplishing an upgrade. In my experience, I experience fewer gfx driver issue if I uninstall ANY driver before upgrading.

Did you DL the driver from ATi and use their wizard to select PCIe or AGP, Win7, x86 or x64. Just checking.

In the ATI drivers, they call the HD3470 a HD3400 series, so that is fine.

Was it the latest Mobility Catalyst 10.4 you installed. (not the Desktop Cat10.4)
ATI Catalyst? Mobility Display Driver

(sorry I took too long. You've now already answered this.)

Instead of ATi direct DL, you might consider going to ACER and DLing the Ati video driver they list. Why? Fine tuned/compatible specifically for the 5920G.
