really sorry for dragging you through this.
i'm not sure how to check it's date, the only dates i've found are under properties, it's created, modified, and accessed dates are all the same Thursday, ‎July ‎16, ‎2009, ‏‎11:38:40 AM.
it's digital signatures timestamp is ‎Wednesday, ‎July ‎15, ‎2009 10:38:39 PM
but i'm pretty sure those aren't what i'm looking for,
also, it has no previous versions. if the update was successful wouldn't there be a previous version?

That's the one. The Created and Accessed dates sometimes change but the Modified date doesn't. Unless of course you modify it!!

It's now good to go.

No. Technically the older driver wasn't updated. It was replaced with a newer model.

The previous driver was dated 2005 -

So, if your seeing 2009 now, the driver was in fact updated (replaced).

No, you would not find previous version driver in \windows\system32\drivers

Thank you for your help guys, so far I have not had any issues with blue screens since the update, although I still need to do some tinkering with some of the utilities I downloaded while trying to fix this so I'm going to give it a few more days before I mark this thread as solved.

Thanks again!

Wouldn't you know it, an hour later and I've experienced two blue screens while playing heroes of newerth, a game I haven't really had problems with in the past. The first blue screen was a 3d and the second was 1e. Unfortunately both crash dumps froze at 90%, the second one with a really annoying noise playing on the speaker. Each time I was forced to physically restart the computer, and each time it rebooted, the video cards fan spun faster than it ever spins. The second time it rebooted, the screen went black and I haven't been able to successfully boot the computer since. When I press the power button the fans start spinning but there is no post noise and the video cards fan spins, stops, spins, stops, etc and it just keeps doing that as long as i leave it on. The last time this happened I sent in my mobo to be repaired, but could it be the video card?

when i boot the computer using the onboard mothercard it works fine, but i'm prompted with a message from AMD VISION Engine Control Center that says that "No AMD graphics driver is installed or the AMD driver is not functioning properly. Please install the AMD driver appropriate for your AMD hardware."

Could this be because I removed the video card? or is it refering to the onboard card which is probably out of date?
