Need Processor Drivers by AMD for A8-3800 APU with Radeon Graphics

HP pavillion p7-1126s

Windows 7 64 bit home premium

processor A8-3800 APU with Radeon Graphics

 

Got another driver I need from using system recovery.

Have the old driver from year 2006 by microsoft, need the up to date driver by AMD for this AMD processor. Looked around but couldn't find, and forget about going to device manager to update the processor it says its uptodate lol thats also not right.

To the best of my knowledge AMD doesn't provide a processor driver to consumers. AMD provides the driver to Microsoft for use in the Windows OS. The only driver AMD lists for your APU (CPU/GPU) is the graphics driver. If you haven't updated to Win7 SP1 yet, I suggest you do before installing other software/drivers.

 

Go to Device Manager > Processors > (double click a processor) > Driver > Driver Details [this is from XP, should be the same or close for Win7]. Under Driver File Details a driver file like "C:\windows\system32\drivers\intelppm.sys" (this is from an Intel CPU) should be listed. Below that a file version like "5.1.2600.2180 {xpsp_sp2_rtm.040803-2158}" (this is from a XP SP2 install) should be listed. If these items on your computer display "amdppm.sys" (or something similar) for the driver and something like "6.1.7600.16385 {xxxxxxx }" for file version, your system is up-to-date. If you see something like "6.1.7601.xxxxx {xxxxxxx} for the file version, you are running Win7 SP1.

Thanks, lasvegaswireman

 

my version is 6.1.7600.16385

It never occured to me that amd sent microsoft the drivers, but anyone whos had to start from scratch KNOWS how frustrating it is to get them, and how generic microsoft drivers are they aren't the original, they weren't made for that product they will however get you by when you don't have the originals though, I just didn't want to skimp out on my processor, but I assumed these in particular fell into the same catagory as the generics. I learned something new from this. Kudos for the help.
