    Default Unable to run AMD RADEON 6470M HD Graphic Driver in Windows 8 Release Preview

    Hi all,

    I'm not able to run my AMD RADEON 6470M HD Graphic driver after installing in Windows 8 Release Preview!
    It shows yellow exclamatory sign. I reinstalled AMD Drivers from its official site, still not change.

    Did you use the Win 8 released drivers (have to search for Win 8 AMD drivers)?

    Did you try installing the driver using the Device Manager? This method oftentimes works to update/install drivers that the user cannot get to install in the conventional manner. To do so, open the Device Manager, click what you want updated, & when it asks for the source, point it to the folder the driver is in. Hopefully this will do the trick.

    That card is supposed to be supported by AMD with Windows 8. It's the 4xxx HD Radeon series & below that will be totally dependent on drivers supplied by MS, except quarterly bug fixes or patches as needed. Shame on AMD for this, as it was only 3 to 4 years ago that many users dropped $400 to $500 for some of these upper 4xxx series cards.

    I'll stick with the Intel/NVIDIA CPU/GPU combo for any future computer purchases due to this & other reasons. AMD is beginning to become take the same highway as HP has long ago with their customer service. I don't expect it to get better, & don't want to get caught in the middle no more than I already have. My desktop GPU is the Radeon HD 3200, fortunately MS drivers (for Win 8 CP/RP) has produced a much better looking screen than AMD's drivers under Windows 7 did.

    This is what I should have been getting from AMD, for nearly three years now, & also plays a part in why I don't want the brand again.

    Hi,

    This is a known issue with a range of AMD Radeon Mobility Graphic Cards.

    AMD has promised an updated, Windows 8 driver for these devices, but there is no new announcements about the ETA yet, that I have seen.

    The only thing we can do is wait.

    Reference answer here
