Force driver update on a mobility radeon graphic
I've got a Dell Inspiron N5010 (almost two years old), which has a Radeon Mobility HD4650 GPU. I was able to install the Catalyst drivers upto 11.04, but after that I haven't been able to install them. The Catalyst driver page includes my GPU as a supported one.
The driver install goes fine without any problem, but I am not able to select the AMD Display Driver during a custom install. The display driver shows up as up to date during install, but if I open the Device Manager, the diver version is much older than the version on the AMD Catalyst driver update page.
I have tried uninstalling the drivers and starting a fresh install.
Some searching on the net told me that some notebook manufacturers prevent the card from recognized by new third party diver updates. If this is true, is there some way I can bypass it and force the driver install?
I am running Windows 7 x64 edition.
EDIT: I am having exactly the same problem as THIS person, as I found out after asking my question, but there's been NO answer to that question so far. I have also tried the steps he has described, including using the Mobility Modder, but to no avail.
