    i just saw win 7 had 1 important update. so i check and it has an ati update for my 4870x2. Id rather do the uninstall catalyst and all then reinstall. but version on site is still 9.9. Anyone able to add on to what this is?

    W7 says the same for my 4850 even tho I got the latest Catalyst (9.9 I think) from AMD's site. Not sure if its related to graphics or related to something else with the 48xx series.

    It says it fails due to an error, but if you check your driver version in CCC it has installed driver earlier than the driver in package 9.9. I think it was 8.64 or so. And, if re-install 9.9 package it will put you back to the latest. Seems WU is a little behind when it comes to drivers.

    Normally if it says update for Model name it's a driver. Which you never install unless the driver is newer than yours (Like Audio/LAN etc). I only do it for Lan drivers because the company's releases drivers from 2007.2008 when Microsoft has a updated version for 2009

    If it was to do with something with windows and the graphics card it would of had a name like Update for windows 7 (KBxxxxxx)
