    Hi, I just stumbled across this site trying to find a way to update my laptop drivers to play Dawn of War II.

    Currently have Mobility Radeon HD4650.

    Now, I have some questions.

    1) Installation step by step guide

    "Download MSXML 6.0 from Microsoft. (Default in Vista) - Install."

    Does Default in Vista mean it's already installed? I clicked on the link and it's very confusing and doesn't offer much information.

    2) I read up above that MobilityModder doesn't support the newest drivers. I assume that the latest I can go safely is
    ATI Catalyst 8.12 on the DriverHeavenDownloads?

    3) I thought there were specific drivers for specific desktop video-cards? (i.e. downloading Radeon HD 4650 drivers for the Mobility version) but from what I am seeing, ATI Catalyst includes all of this?

    Sorry for all the questions, I just want to be sure I'm doing this right.

    Yes

    No last version that works is 9.12 - at least that's what I'm using.

    ATI Catalyst supports a wide range of cards with one software package.

    Yes but its preview version - doesn't work on many machines - definitely not for a newbie.

    FWIW the 10.3 drivers installed ok on my Win 7 x64 machine, but display aspect ratio was wrong. Should have been 1680 x 1050 but max I could get was 1400 x 1050.
