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?
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 hope you find this useful.

Report Unresolved Customer Service Issues here 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.
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.
I am glad that it worked; in case of any further assistance please do reply.
