Free and open-source graphics device driver

Updating ati radeon drivers

Update the Driver via Device Manager This is an easy way for you to update the driver. Keep in mind that most driver updates work perfectly but sometimes things can go wrong. Almost any system operation eventually maps to a physical device. If you can't uninstall that way then try to use one of the other methods.

How to uninstall your current display drivers

Keep in mind that

If you're not sure which to use then just get the Hyperion Pros. This should always be the first method you try. Org not in Nvidia's driver. Sometimes the northbridge and southbridge are built into one chip in which case it's still called a chipset even though there's only one chip. That displays the information about your current display adapter.

The chipset numbers are the important part. Hardware developers have an incentive to deliver Linux drivers for their hardware but, due to competition, no incentive to make these drivers free and open-source. Projects such as libhybris harness Android device drivers to run on Linux platforms other than Android.

That's just a

They just use the name of the northbridge the main chip and ignore the southbridge the support chip. The release notes give a list of the supported chips. It is fairly common for computers to be running with old chipset drivers or to use the basic default drivers built into Windows. Because the device driver is split, marshalling is possible.

Keep in mind that these chipsets are very old and don't support the most recent operating systems very well. There may be one or more reboots to go through this tidying up process. That's just a list of variants on a single northbridge.

There may be one

The cases where you need to uninstall first are noted in the table below. New operating systems if they run at all will have to make do with their built in drivers. In this example, both drivers are installed for a single Radeon Pro video card. If you have a newer chipset then it's usually not that difficult to update your chipset drivers. If you're installing a new operating system from scratch then Windows will use default chipset drivers to get your system running.
