Unable to update ATI drivers

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I just installed a 5870 Eyefinity today. Unfortunately when going to install new drivers, I couldn't get my video driver to update to the newest version of 11.3, rather it continues to remain at 8.8 (attempted several times, results are always the same). However, it does say my Catalyst version is 11.3 in the CCC. I am a total noob, so sorry for the horrid ignorance I may be at risk of. If anyone could explain how to upgrade to 11.3, I would be forever grateful.

If possible, could you take a screenshot of CCC showing the "software" tab on the left side? I'm pretty sure you're looking at the "Driver Packaging Version" which should be 8.8(followed by a bunch more numbers and letters). Also try checking GPU-Z to see if the correct driver version is displayed.

Hi kerotero. If the drivers are not updating for some reason you could try using a driver cleaner to make sure all drivers are removed, then you can carry out a new install to see if it updates.

It does indeed say 8.8 for the packaging version. What exactly is packaging version?

The packaging version is cryptic, and not the best method for figuring out the version you're running.

Driver 11.3 ---> Still 8.8 package.
