AMD 6470M Vaio Problems?

Hi, registered to try to find a solution to my problem.

I bought a new Vaio S in NYC this summer, and reinstalled due to crapware that followed. But after the reinstall device manager cant find my graphics card. A 6470M, but Drivernavigator has installed the latest driver for it. The Catalyst software cant find it and neither can the Driverdownloader from AMD. Any way to "install" my graphics card?

B1GP7, welcome to the Seven Forums.

The reason that the drivers aren't working is that the video card isn't supported in the drivers due to Sony. Basically you have one of two options,

1. Open the INF in the extracted installer files and add the DevID for your particular laptop so that it will install.

2. Get the driver from Sony.

I got it fixed with the AMD drivers, restarted it, and it popped up on device manager, finally it worked. Thought i had installed everything on their site, but probably not, thanks for the help guys :)
