    GC stopped working after Win 8.1 Update


    I am experiencing some minor issues with my Graphics Card. Let me say first that this is an old graphics card, which was however updated to Windows 8. Today, when I updated the computer to 8.1, I came across a "Outdated Driver" error.

    On this computer, I have a ATI (AMD) Radeon 2400HD Graphics.
    I did do a DxDiag and it is available here.

    Thank you in advance,

    Download the AMD auto-detect driver update utility to see if there is an updated driver available for you card:

    AMD Driver Autodetect

    Good luck.

    I have done the detection, and it says I have the latest.

    Can someone explain why the driver is acting up. It was working perfectly when I used Windows 8. Is there a difference in 8.1???
    Also, most of the stuff is working except OpenGL.
