A bought a game recently and it turns out I need to update my video/display/graphics driver (something like that Very Happy )

My main driver is a ati2dvag.dll
the device is a Raedon X300 SE 128mb Hyper memory
chip type is Raedon x300/x500 series (0x5B60)

Basically I'm wondering do I just need to uninstall the ATI Display Driver and install this http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownloa...0&lang=English

or something completely different.

And btw when looking for the new software I chose the x550 option rather than the x300 option, was this the correct thing to do?

thanks in advance Smile

Hi Dman17, welcome to the forums.

You will need to select X300 and download the drivers, then install them. That should do the trick.

Thanks softstag

I was informed that I need to uninstall the old video driver first to avoid clashing.

is the ATI Display Driver the thing I need to uninstal?

You shouldn't need to uninstall the old drivers first, however if you do need to, then remove the ATI Display Drivers from Add/Remove Programs.
