I have an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870 Graphics card and I was having problems playing games so I downloaded the AMD Catalyst install manager to update my drivers and then I was able to play but now it freezes all the time and it keeps blue-screening me. I am worried, but if I uninstall it I will not be able to play the games.

My laptop is ASUS Notebook G73Jh Series
64 bit operating system windows 7.

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU Q 720 @ 1.60GHz 1.60 GHz

RAM: 6GB

Please help, I dont know what to do. Someone said that maybe my old drivers are messing with the new ones? I don't know. If I uninstall the catalyst and all of it, it wont freeze but I wont be able to play games with OPENGL.

You MUST use the OEM VGA driver on the ASUS download page UNLESS you have updated your vBIOS. Before you update your vBIOS, you MUST first update your system BIOS to 213.
