Graphics card driver for Windows 8

This question is answered

Good afternoon.

 

I have a Vostro 3450, with Windows 8 installed. As you may know, its internal graphic card is a Intel HD 3000.

 

But I would like to start using the AMD one also. Which seems to not be detected by Windows 8 here.

 

I remember last time I tried to install the graphic driver available in Support for my service tag, I had to reinstall (repair) my OS, because it wouldn't inicialize (due to driver issues).

 

I also saw your last graphic driver is dated to 25 Oct. But Windows 8 was officially launched on the 26th, wasn't it?

 

So, my question is, will I have problems with Dell driver for Video, version 9.000.0.0000, A00, released on 25th of Oct, in your Driver Downloads page?
Does it fully support Windows 8?

 

Thank you.

  • Hi carlosmatheus,

    Even though Windows 8 was officially launched on October 26 2012, it was given to computer manufactures in August 2012 for testing purpose. Hence Windows 8 drivers were released in Dell support site even before the Windows 8 was officially launched. Please use the link below to download the Dell AMD HD 7650 driver.

    I do not work for Dell. I too am a user.

    The forum is primarily user to user, with Dell employees moderating.

  • Thanks for the answers.

    Yes, drivers don't put anything inside the laptop.

    I tried the Downloads page from Dell for AMD driver and I had to reinstall Windows afterwards. Maybe I used the wrong version of the driver.

    I'll try now this new one, from the 25th of Oct.

  • It worked.

    I'm pretty such the mistake was that I was using the original drivers CD from Dell for installing drivers for Windows 8 (not launched when I bought this laptop).

    Thanks for your help.

  • Hi carlosmatheus,

    I am glad that it worked; in case of any further assistance please do reply.
