Windows 7 Radeon HD3470 issue.


I'm on the verge of putting my foot through my girlfriends laptop, it's an Acer Aspire 5920G running Windows 7 X64.

It seems that windows has installed it's stored version of the driver (version the problem being this is causing issues in Maya and she needs the latest version.

I've tried installing the latest driver from ATI but it flat out ignores it and won't even recognise Catalyst. I've tried updating the driver manually and choosing the CH_92499.inf file but it says the driver is not compatible with this version of windows.

Can anyone help or am I going to have to install XP?

Thanks in advance!
