Windows 7: amd drivers

06 Feb 2016   #11

Windows 10 Pro 64 bit

Hello everyone I am back. The AMD Radeon HD 7480D driver seems to be up to date.

Another little thing I just noticed with the AMD A4-5300 APU Radeon (tm) HD Graphics, is that it says
Microsoft driver 6.1.7600.16385. It does not say AMD.

I have been onto AMD's site, and got a bit on the confused side about what driver this thing should have. I
do not like playing with drivers because I am scared of putting the wrong thing in the machine. Just call
me miss confident.

Hello Arc, Sorry I didn't get back yesterday. I lost my internet connection until this morning, so I am just
typing the drivers in case it goes again.
This is a new harddrive installed by a technician

TSSTCORP CDDVDWSH-224DBATA Driver Provider - Microsoft - same driver as above.

Hp Led Monitor w2072a Driver Provider - HP

Realtek HD Audio Driver Provider - Realtek Semiconductor Corp
Date - 30.10.2012
Driver - tried to update this one about a week ago, but I must have downloaded the wrong one because it would not work, so I just rolled it back
to this one.

These drivers are from ASUS dvd that came with my computer, and has the chipset drivers on it.

I know the network adapter is fine, because it was just installed. ASUS Motherboard A85XM-A.

Ethel, your usb3 drivers are deffo out of date at 140, the latest is 185, and there are 2 drivers for usb3 on amd, the Host driver, then the Hub driver.

you want the latest amd crimson edition 15.12 - release date - 2015-12-17 chipset package
--> Chipset

read my system specs, i have this chipset package installed.

amd have changed the installer user interface, but it is still easy to understand. BUT, as a newby, read each page carefully, you will get a better understanding of whats whats with your drivers then. if a page says somewhere 'automatically download latest drivers' or similar wording, untick that option.

i am going to have a further look on amd for your graphics driver. i will post a link when i find the correct one for you.

realtek audio driver package should be R2.79. realtek website has been very slow lately, i will post a link for that driver package too, when i find the bloody thing.

Thank you so much everyone for spending the time to help. Thank you EmmaRoyd for heading me in
the right direction with drivers. I have seen amd crimson before on their site, and thought what is the go
here? It is very much appreciated if you are able to find the right driver for Realtek, as I have been on
their site a few times to, when you can get on it. Never know which driver is the right one. If my internet
connection behaves today I will download all the drivers.

like all things ethel, once you know what you are looking for and where to look, its easy.

for some reason, i think realtek website is still playing up, but the file is on filehippo

here -->Download Realtek High Definition Audio 2.79 Win 7 64 -

right, now i am on a wireless dongle for my internet. downloading anything at night is a pita, but,,,,
i never download stuff at times of the day when my isp's network is full of people gaming, watching online video etc, so i download in the early morning to midday period.

Thank you so much for finding the right realtek driver. My internet access can go at any time. Telstra
now is saying they are in the process of upgrading the towers, so hopefully it will improve soon. My download speeds sometimes get down to a ridiculous 3kbs/per second, and naturally it just stops. Other
times it will be 1mb. I don't want to sound like an idiot, but I also have AMD Catalyst Install Manager
8.0.911.0 . Do I have to uninstall this from programs, before installing anything else. I know it is also
under the registry, so not sure what to do about this.

AMD Catalyst Install Manager is needed to install drivers. i hate the bloody thing. but its not that large installed, 25mb i think, but there are ways around it .

the audio driver is 125mb, and with your dodgy isp, try to use someone elses pc/network if possible. a dodgy network could corrupt your downloads.

soon as i can get into realtek, i will get direct download links for your audio and lan driver, though filehippo is ok for downloads, but i will need to get onto realtek for the lan driver.

if you uninstall Catalyst Install Manager, it MAY uninstall your drivers too.
