    Video Drivers Won't Update

    Hi, I recently bought an HP Probook 450 laptop with AMD video card and I installed Windows 8.1 on it.

    While every other device seems to be working perfectly, when I go to the Device Manager, there is a little yellow triangle with an exclamation mark under AMD Radeon and Microsoft Basic Display Adapter.

    I tried redownloading and reinstalling drivers for AMD manually and automatically but when I go and try to install it, it says that it's been installed and working.

    What could the problem here be?

    Hi badkid,
    A yellow exclamation point next to a device in Device Manager means that Windows has identified a problem of some kind with that device.

    Win 8.1.1 Pro x64

    You might have a switchable graphic, try to install the driver from the manufacturer not from the AMD.
