I just read through the entire thread (this is probably the 3rd full time) just to be sure. Downloaded the newly (reposted) zip file and followed the simple instructions to install from 'have disk'. The installation just finished and my driver is now at 8.881.0.0 from the original 8.772.x.x. Pretty sure it worked, now I just need to test on a game!!!!
IF IT DOES WORK, I NEED TO GIVE YOU BOTH A GIANT FRIKIN HUGE HUG!!!!! I've been so discouraged by the responses given by HP and the non-support of over a year from this video card. This is all it took from a friendly community member. I will restart and test and post the results.

Just restarted and it seems the update has gone through! Thank you very much for all the help guys. Did notice the AMD website has an updated driver at revision #11.11 (FYI this is not the actual driver #, just the one used on the catalyst control center and AMD website) but hey I am NOT complaining. This is a huge jump from the previous crap HP left on the site.
BTW, I'm on a DV6t-3000 CTO Select Edition w/ Radeon 5650 (w/ switchable graphics), 64-bit Windows 7.

I have had my HP DV7-4069WM laptop for about 8 months and I noticed long ago that they (HP) were way behind on updating the graphics drivers. I personally have not had any problems using latest drivers from AMD. I have done so since the purchase of my laptop. I do wish they would more frequently update the graphics drivers on all there products. Graphics are always being updated versus other hardware on computers. HP needs to put more effort into keeping these updated. That's just my humble opinion.

I'm running into a similar issue trying to use Sony Vegas Pro 11 with GPU acceleration and the HP Envy Beats 14 with the Radeon 6630M. I think I need an updated driver. It says I have Driver Packaging Version 22.214.171.124 and Catalyst Control Center 2011.0412.2341.40734.
My product # is LR 198AV.

I've been looking for a driver update for quite a while now. I tried to install the driver that was provided in the forum but it's not compatible with my laptop.
I'm using Pavilion dv6-3050us; my product key is WQ687UA#ABA
I'm using Windows 7 64bit.
Please help me update my ATI 5650 driver as I'm having a lot of difficulties in games due to the old driver.

Sorry for the late reply, but I'm very busy this days....
I uploaded a modded driver version for dv6-3050us at this link: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=0HCAD2A1
The drivers use the latest Catalyst 11.11c. Note that this driver is not a HP official version.
Please follow the instructions posted earlier in this thread to update the drivers.

Thank you very much for your help. I've installed the driver for dv6-3050us; however the switchable graphics feature is not working anymore, i.e. when I unplug the laptop it still stays on Radeon 5650 and does not switch to 4650. I was wondering if there was a way to fix it.
Once again, thank you for your help. really appreciate it.
