    I have searched EVERYWHERE and read all threads and articles on this subject to no success. Most of the time the answers are 'install new drivers' or 'manually install drivers through driver > update " but I can't do either of these things.

    After fresh install of windows 7 64bit sp 1 on a toshiba satellite s855d-s5253, I was going to install drivers as usual - I came across the display driver as "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter" - So I thought, okay so I just have to update and install driver for AMD Vision A10 ( It is a ATI Radeon HD 7660G). I know this is the right card, I used AMD Catalyst auto detect, I googled hardware ids, And also I remember this card from before I had to format the computer. I used an official windows 7 install disc, as well.
    When it comes to trying to uninstall the driver, it always reinstalls itself as soon as I turn the system on - I have tried disabling automatic device installation to prevent this to no success.
    And when I try installing the Catalyst stuff it ends up giving me a message like "graphics adapter not supported" or could not install because of the graphics adapter, etc. Basically I am trying to reinstall the drivers and its only picking up standard vga graphics adapter? not the Radeon HD 7660G. But it is definitely there. Have also tried safe mode....
    I really am at a loss at what to do, this is really a pain as I cannot load any games on the computer!

    Here is the support and driver downloads site for the Toshiba Satellite S855D-S5253 laptop.

    I suggest you add and save this site in your browser favorites/bookmarks list so you can readily refer to it when needed.

    Select the Downloads tab, then refine search by Windows 7(64-bit) - Driver.

    The AMD display driver will be near the bottom of the list.

    Download and save the driver, then close all open windows, then install the driver.

    I have already been trying to install this driver (The one from toshiba's site, the one you posted) When installing this driver it gets to the end and then says to reboot for Catalyst Install Manager to work, I reboot and there is no change (The display still reads as "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter") When then running the setup extracted to the C:\AMD folder, it gives the error that graphics adapter not supported, and that it cannot install.

    Whenever I install an ATI/AMD graphics driver, I select the custom install option and then select only the graphics driver instead of installing everything in the driver package.
