Upgrading graphics card driver

  Richardsreds 17:19 29 Sep 2010


I want to upgrade my graphics card driver and have no idea how to do it.

I am using the ATI RADEON TM HD 5700 Series.

The latest driver is 10.8 and I am on 10.6. I think this is causing a problem with an online game I want to play (Starcraft 2)

Apparently I upgrade via this website click here

However once I click download I don't want what to do and am worries i'll stuff everything up graphically if i get this wrong.

Could someone give some help please!

Kind regards

Once you click on download all it will do is go to the folder you usually put downloads in.
It will not install until you double click after you have download the driver EXE file.

You can just install the new driver over the old or uninstall the old driver,which will mean your desktop will look a bit weird until you install the new driver.

I create a system restore point first so that I can wind back if necessary.

I think there is a patch for starcraft 2 this could also solve problems.
