    Can I use display driver other than Toshiba's driver from support page?
    I've recently got a massage from microsoft solution centar which reccomend me to visit AMD web site in order to find newer driver.
    So I wonder if I can upgrade my driver with ordinary, non-Toshiba driver and what I could possibly get or lose with it?

    hi Strahimir
    it's not recomended to "upgrade" your grafics driver with a non-toshiba or generic driver.
    i guess the driverpackage you are using now is fully functionable and there should be no reason to get another driver instead.
    btw: the toshiba grafics driver is spcial designed for the used hardware.
    the chip is driven by special parameters which the toshiba driver supplies.

    i wont upgrade any driver of my machine - only if there is a problem with one of them!
    remember: *never change a running system*

    i turned off "searching for hardware drivers" in the win-update

    Hi

    You can use it but only at your own risk.
    The non-Toshiba graphic card drivers are not tested and donít support an overheating protection which help to avoid a GPU damage due to a higher temperature.

    The non-Toshiba graphic card driver should be installed in device manager.
    There you use an advanced installation procedure and could point to the driver files stored on the HDD.
