being an ATI owner myself

I know that it can be frustrating to get a 'bum' update from the AMD site, my only advise is to 'roll back' to an earlier catalyst or use the software that came with the install cd.

I have read that there were some problems with the last (10.3) catalyst suite, but that seems to have been ironed out now, the next update should be along in the next couple of days. If you would like to address the issue with AMD, here are their links

is it an integrated video card

or a dedicated card. Meaning; is there a physical card in a PCI-E slot, or do you plug your cable into the motherboard itself?

If you have a dedicated card the drivers are on the AMD.Game website, as are the current drivers for 'integrated cards'
