My fix: I went to the device manager, selected the graphics adapter or whatever it's called, right clicked and pressed update drivers and selected over the internet. It found the drivers and now I can install AMD Catalyst on it. Hope this helps, or the best solution down below :)


Hi, recently I've wiped/formatted my hard drive and now I finished reinstalling most of the drivers. My problem is that I'm trying to install the graphics/gpu drivers but no luck so far. I used CPUz to check on my (m)GPU and it shows nothing but Standard VGA Graphics Adapter.

I'm using the Acer Aspire 5742G, the cpu is i3-370m and gpu is the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470. If anyone could point me in the right direction I'd be grateful.
Forgot to add that I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate, 64-bit.

^Thanks for the help but whenever I try to install either driver (Intel or ATI/AMD) it either tells me I don't meet requirements or there was an error.

Nevermind I fixed it now. I went to the device manager, selected the adapter thing and checked for drivers which windows downloaded. Finally I can get back to using Aero and playing my games lol.
