    Failed install GPU Driver MSI GX70


      Hi, everybody I have faced a problem on my laptop When updating jumps out a window with the text
      "Your graphics card is not compatible with the current graphics driver.
      It is recommended that you continue using your existing driver as updating it can lead to unexpected errors.
      If you choose to update the driver,you must uninstall all incompatible graphics cards first.
      For more driver installation details, see KBArticle"
      What to do? How to update drivers?
      Characteristics of my laptop:

      OS - Windows 10

      CPU - AMD A10-5750M (integ gpu 8650g)

      GPU - AMD Radeon HD 8970M, 2GB GDDR5

      Memory - 8GB DDR3 1600MHz

          Your integrated GPU of your APU has reached peak optimisation and been moved to legacy status, it will not receive any further driver updates. More information available here.


          You can download the latest Crimson 16.2.1 driver here.

          You can download the last Catalyst 15.11.1 Beta driver here.

            Do the following, get better performance, and keep it up and going longer;


            Ditch the 1.5v 8GB 1600MHz DDR3 DIMM
            Get HyperX 1.35v 2x8GB 1866MHz DDR3 DIMM kit


            Ditch the HDD to the secondary spot, get a SDD for main.


            Pull the CPU cooler off, and GPU cooler off. Clean off the old thermal compound, it's garbage. Use something like Arctic Silver synthetic thermal grease or better.


            Ditch the HD 8970M 2GB
            Get a Dell/Alienware R9 M290X 4GB


            It'll run better in games, more so than now, and you'll love how it performs with newer titles. No, you can't play in Ultra on top titles, but Medium and some on High with 30+ FPS with ease! Thank me later.
