Radeon HD 6950 can't update drivers

I'm trying to update my drivers since my Radeon Settings app(CNext) says there is a new update available.


so to give some more details here are my options:


Currently installed 15.301.1901-160226a

New 16.30.2311-160718a

New 16.7.2 (Beta)


I tried it with both options:


Update now > launch installer > download driver update.

The installer opens and says his :


Setuo will install Non-WHQL NI-EG Radeon Software Crimson edition 16.2.1 (15.301.1901 Beta5-160226a 64 bit windows 10....

So I hit install then the AMD Installer opens and it tries to install the same exact version the I already have 15.301.1901-160226a...


I tried both new options and everytime the installer just says the same thing : AMD driver already installed and up to date.


Why can't I update to the latest drivers ?

If I try to launch a game it even says " update your drivers to 16.20.1025 before you play " so I'm just stuck with my old drivers.


please help.
