I just installed Windows 8 and I am having issues getting my graphics driver updated. I have a AMD Mobility Radeon HD 5650 - I downloaded the proper file from their site but every time I try to install it, it tells me the driver failed to install. Final Status: Fail Version of Item: 8.972.4.0000 Size: 90 Mbytes
The video card shows up in the device manager with the yellow symbol, when I look at the properties it says that the device cant start - I am assuming because it has no drivers. Interestingly, if I start the computer in safe mode the yellow symbol goes away but I can't run the driver install file in safe mode. I don't know what else to try.
Computer is a Acer Aspire 8943g laptop
