This is a tricky one. It is related to users with laptop from Sony or Toshiba with an ATI Radeon card (in my case mobility radeon HD 4650) with windows 7.
Sometimes you may want newer driver for your card (performance upgrades, sw compatibility such as hw acceleration in mozilla firefox .. or just having up-to-day sw :) ). For desktop cards this is not a problem - you simply download catalyst driver suite from AMD page and install it. However mobility cards on certain laptops cannot be updated this way - they need driver created by the laptop manufacturer, which is often outdated (the one for Sony laptops is from 2009).
I have tried the mobility modder utility on 10.6 and 12.2 catalyst versions, but to no success - the modder did not seem to actually modify the installation files (as seen from files timestamps). This problem seems to be experienced not only by me ( here ). I have also tried to update the driver manually via 'device manager'
Is there any other way to update the drivers (except for waiting for manufacturer to release the updated driver - I frankly don't believe they will)?
Also, is there any good reason why the hell are the laptop manufacturers forcing this policy when they are unable to release up-to-date drivers?
