Short post but maybe useful to some…
I was sick of installing Catalyst Control Center and all the other
crap stuff that it seems you must install to update the drivers on your ATI graphics card so this is what I did.
Download the correct driver update from ATI/AMD’s website. Mine was 12-4_vista_win7_64_dd_ccc.exe
If you don’t already have it, download and install 7Zip from http://www.7-zip.org (this is is a bit like WinZip and Winrar etc but it’s free, open-source software without toolbars and other crap).
Use 7Zip to extract the contents of the file you downloaded from ATI (e.g. right-click on 12-4_vista_win7_64_dd_ccc.exe) and choose ‘7Zip > Extract Files’
The drivers you want are in: OUTDIR\Packages\Drivers\Display
