Hi guys.

I have a question regarding updating the graphics drivers (Radeon HD 3200) on my Lenovo X100e ThinkPad. I cannot & it's doing my head IN!!! I'm stuck using the latest version Lenovo released on their website on 2nd July, 2010 (v8.663.2.1-091216a-093974C-Lenovo)!

I've had no problems compiling & installing the latest ATI/AMD drivers on my Linux (BackTrack v5) partition, so I do know a little about computers.

I've tried methods recommended here & by others shown on the following website: ... -playback/

Basically, no matter what version driver I try to update to I get the following error message (when attempting to manually update via Windows Device Manager):

“Windows encountered a problem installing the driver software for your device”

“Windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error while attempting to
install it [ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics]”

“The driver selected for this device does not support this version of Windows...”

If anybody out there has a solution they can share I would be super appreciative; what little of my hair is left is in a most precarious situation...

Thank you all for your time. I hope you all had a very merry Christmas & wish you all a happy new year while I'm at it.

PS. sorry to cross-post on both the ThinkPads Support Community & the Lenovo Community forums – I'm just hoping someone out there has an answer for me – no doubt being so terribly simple & straightforward that I'll look like a noob :) S.

Issue has been SOLVED thanks to The_Solutor over @ the Lenovo Community forums if anyone is (or ever is) interested... ... d-p/637767

Once again the Lenovo forums boards come to the rescue :)
