Help with ATI Radeon HD 5870 drivers?

Recommended Posts

Hello!

 

So, I realized I this machine, an ASUS gaming laptop, lying around and started using it. It has played games such as Guild Wars 2, SWTOR, and various other games- INCLUDING CITY OF HEROES!!!

 

But now I'm getting this error when I start the game up (see attached photo). I have tried to update the drivers via the amd site, the asus site, everything I can figure out. I still get this error. I did an "installation report", here are the results of that:

Notice there are no errors. I can't find a NEWER driver. I don't know if I need an older driver, maybe? I'm at my wits end, folks. Halp!!

 

AS AN EDIT, AS OF 5/12/2019 at about 10PM CST:

I did a "cleanup" of drivers with DDU (display drivers uninstaller) and redid the update...now it claims I've updated to August of 2015...is it eventually going to catch up with itself?

Hi there Necrodomis,

 

Intergrated graphics are a right pain! More so on legacy devices!

 

https://www.amd.com/en/support/graphics/amd-radeon-hd/ati-radeon-hd-5000-series/ati-radeon-hd-5870

 

Try the drivers there for your OS (make sure to pick correct x64 or x86 version that matches your OS you are using)

 

See if that helps at all. If not, we can delve deeper if need be.

I did that last night. Clean indtall. All it did was change the date of the drivers. Still gave me the same error.
