    HD 6900 - outdated driver but impossible to update


      Good evening!


      I wanted try game Trove but when I downloaded and started it just crashed after first launch(look at video below). I contacted game support and they told me I have outdated driver for GPU so I tried to update it. First through AMD Catalyst Control Center but there is I have newest driver, so then I tried AMD Driver Autodetect and there is also I have newest driver. I think it's because the GPU is relative old and here is no more support for drivers for this card. So I am lost and don't know how to solve this problem...


      Here is video about first launch of game after instalation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0JLjNTZkXLY

      Here is video about that problem: Trove crash - YouTube

      Next I attached logs from Windows Event Viewer and DxDiag, maybe it can help.


      Next some information about my system:

      Desktop or Laptop System
