Been using these forums quite a bit as an awesome resource to help me build my most recent machine, but this is my first actual post.
I put together a machine with an AMD Athlon 64 Dual Core processor, and I'm trying to get the most recent drivers and Optimization Tool (as per Company of Heroes' instructions when I go to install the game.) If I go to Control Panel>System>Hardware>Device Manager>Processors, I can see the processor, but going into its properties shows the driver date as 5/27/2006. Now apparantly AMD has a driver out as recently as 8/31/07 (version 1.3.2.0053) but if you go to their page, the download link doesn't work (at least not for me; its just text that says "Download Now!" but it doesn't do jack.)
I found another place to download it here, and the first time I ran it I guess it uninstalled the old driver? Then, I ran it again and it installed and asked to restart. So I did that, then when the computer booted up again I went to System>Hardware>BlahBlahBlah, and the driver version was still the old one!! Did it not install? Or does that thing typically not update? The driver version it says I have is 126.96.36.199. How do I confirm whether the driver install worked?
I haven't tried this optimizer yet, though - maybe that will help? Please let me know!
Thanks in advance!
