The Netflix app, for example, will hang at 97% when you try to play a video, and a few other Metro apps will either exhibit rendering issues or not run at all.If you do absolutely need Open GL, download and install the legacy drivers, reboot, then go to the device manager, click on Display Adapters, double-click on "ATI Radeon HD...", click the Driver tab, then click on ROLL BACK DRIVER.
What you'll find is that the old Microsoft driver returns (and the Metro apps will now work correctly again) - BUT - you'll also have full Open GL support, as well as the Catalyst Control Center.(Although why anybody would want to use that bloated CCC p.o.s. Here's a link to the drivers you're looking for: AMD Catalyst But again, I would strongly advise you NOT to install them.What you'll find is that the old Microsoft driver returns (and the Metro apps will now work correctly again) - BUT - you'll also have full Open GL support, as well as the Catalyst Control Center. When I try to update the graphics card I think it is, Radeon HD 4570, it says "The driver selected for this device does not support this version of windows." The driver I downloaded from the link in your post must not be x64-bit? (That's correct.)

Yes, I do need to update my graphics driver because it does not recognize my graphics card. I need to find out how to figure out the name of the card for me to install the driver first. Without updating the driver, the computer will not be able to use the graphics card, and is super terrible at even running Solitaire 3D. Either the legacy drivers I posted (for HD4xxx and below) or the current Catalyst drivers (for HD5000 and above) will auto-detect your card and install the appropriate driver.
I cannot install new drivers, because they're either incompatible with Windows 8 or I don't know the exact graphics card model. The model is not on the graphics card, if it is, it is not visible and I am not removing it from my motherboard. It's running off the default system driver and I've read all the threads that deal with it, but none of them work because they boil down to the problem at hand. There's only five tabs, and barely any information (which is all wrong, it still thinks I have an AMD Processor instead of my ASUS).
When I first installed it on my old Gateway (it was crem-de-la-crem back then) the CCC had a... I believe her to be called "Sapphire", but I haven't found a capable graphics card driver with this series (on Windows 8). And once that is done, how can I upgrade my graphics card driver?
