Type the word Device in the Start menu's Start Search box. Click on Device
Manager in the results list. In Device Manager expand "Display adapters",
and then double click on your video device. On the Driver tab, Copy your
Driver Provider info, and Paste it into your response to this post. Also,
do the same for Driver Version. It should look something like this example:
Driver Provider: ATI Technologies Inc
Driver Version: 8.765.4.3
Also be sure to report the actual name for the video device under "Display
adapters" in Device Manager, for example "ATI Mobility Radeon X600". Maybe
a better driver can be found that will satisfy STEAM.
Note, too, that a driver update must be compatible with your Operating
System. Are you running Vista?
