    Confused on updating my G73JH-X1. Could someone help me?

    I'm confused as to what I need to do to upgrade my graphics card driver on my G73JH-X1. I'm running the 209 bios. I don't have any issues with the laptp at all, but I would like to update the graphics card driver so I can get the most out of Crysis 2. It has the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870 graphics card in it.

    Do I need to update the bios to 213? It currently at 209.

    Do I need to update the Vbios?

    What file in Chasity's thread is the correct video card driver update that I should run?

    I'm scared of bricking my laptop. I'm not sure what updates are needed or if I can just update the graphics driver. What is the correct order that I should do the updates?

    Could someone help me?

    Update to 213 via usb / update vibios via usb / ATI 11.1+ all have given people lag issues but maybe you'll be lucky enough not to have them. Latest beta driver is 11.4 RC2 latest WHQL is 11.2 / 11.3 come out tomorrow.

    Pretty much google it.

    So I do it in this order?

    1. Update bios from 209 to 213

    2. Update the vBios with v93 VBIOS for HD5870M

    3. Update the graphics driver with the one that Chasity linked to above, OR use Catalyst 11.4 RC1 Preview March 22 (complete package)? Any idea which one to use?

    Once I do all that I should be completely updated right?
