Click on Display Adapters then one of the adapters. Then the driver tab.

I'm on the 12.3 version 8.951.0.0 dated 3/8/2012.

Old, but I'm not going to tell you what to do. Have you experience with installing drivers? Leshcat has good instructions just follow EXACTLY.

Btw I thought it would be sweet to put a 64gb SSD in that extra bay for the OS.

So I would just remove the Radeon driver, and run that installer? I don't see a manual for it..

Yah, I've dealt with drivers before lol..

Edit, Found the manual!

Manual link is on the side bar. He has special uninstaller you must run and also have to enable DSE which he explains. You must disable UAC which I do anyway. I hate it.

BTW: Popeye, noticed you have the same laptop as me, did you use the second HD bay? I wanna figure out how I can go about shaving the back part of the panel. Tried putting my SSD in there, but the parts of the panel that goes to the back of the laptop hit it .
I believe this is the panel but you may want to verify.

60.RB002.007 - Acer Laptop Miscellaneous Parts

I verified it is the correct cover here. Out of stock and more expensive than first link.
