    [NEED HELP!]Driver installation...

    Hi... :D

    Up front id like to say im new to this forum and im not from England or America so my fluency isnt the best so sorry if anything i say is a little inappropriate...

    With some things i get a driver error...
    Most probably know where this is coming from...
    In this case its with minecraft (I know... -_-).
    Just the normal case of 'bad driver installation'.

    So i tried downloading a driver that would be compatible with windows 8 Consumer Preview cause im getting sick and tired of constantly restarting my pc to switch between windows 7 and windows 8(Dualboot FTW).

    My Graphics card BTW is: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4500 series.

    The driver i downloaded was from: AMD Catalyst

    Almost at the bottom of the page are the Graphics cards listed that it should be comaptible with... mine wasnt listed but i thought "What the hack, ill just try it". obviously it didnt work -_-...

    So at last my question... How do i fix this problem?
    Are there other drivers avaible for windows 8 that are compatible with my graphics card, or is it just hopeless?

    Thanks in advance...
