Hey guys.

I have a Sapphire Radeon HD 6850 graphics card. Unfortunately, I lost the drivers CD.

I have always downloaded the drivers from the CD, and now that I have lost it, I have no idea which drivers to download.

Can anyone please help me get this graphics card up and running as it should?

I'm using
Windows 7 64 bit,
Core i5 3570k,
8Gb of ram,
Asrock Z77 extreme4 mobo.

Feel free to request whatever else info you need. I will be watching this thread like a hawk!!

OMG thank you!!

I tried downloading from the Sapphire website yesterday and had a confusing time.

I used AMD Driver Autodetect and it automatically told me which driver to download.

AWESOME!!

I will let you know how it goes, and will select best answer once I'm finished.

UPDATE:

i have downloaded the drivers they told me to. After installing catalyst, a blue screen pops up saying there have been an error.

the same thing happened yesterday when I downloaded from the sapphire's website.

after the blue screen, the computer restarted and my resolution was all jacked up and there was a black space around the edges of my screen making the actual computer screen even smaller.

i did system restore to get back to the normal state.

what do i do? what did i do wrong?

I'm already stuck on #2...

"1. Go to Add/Remove Programs

2. Uninstall the Catalyst Install manager (Express Uninstall)"

I went to my control panel -> uninstall programs and couldn't find the catalyst install manager.
