Why would you wan't to download a driver that isn't compatible?

Just because there is a newer driver out there, doesn't mean you need it.

Can you be a little more specific as to the problem you are having?

the problem i am having is that when ever my computer comes back from hibernation it freezes within minutes. And this is due to the AMD Radeon X1200. And since this is a legacy driver they wont update it.

Some people have found a way to update it without it messing up the system, which is in the link posted above. But i just need a walkthrough of some sort to be able to do it.
