Default HD 3870 x2 error saying it's outdated when trying to play L4D. How do i fix this?

ive uninstalled n then reinstalled the 9.5 Catalyst driver, doesnt fix it. I've reinstalled Vista, that didnt fix it. What is the best driver sweeper i can get? I cant RMA my graphics card, it has MX-2 on it. Is there anything i can do besides trying to buy a new graphics card? I've RMAed my mobo, my CPU is fine, my RAM is fine, my sound card is alright, and my HDD is fine. Wtf is going on here?? I cant even play Left 4 Dead anymore let alone start it up to the menu screen!


im also trying to get help on the official Steam forums too: HD 3870 x2 error saying it's outdated when trying to play L4D. How do i fix this? - Steam Users' Forums

Ya, its just an error about drivers, that comes up even with the latest drivers on all Steam games.. as far as I know, there is no fix for it, except that "Don't show this message"

However, it should still let you continue playing man...

EDIT: best driver cleaning software is Driver Cleaner Pro (its not free anymore, but the older versions are abandonware and Afterdawn still has it)
I do not accept help requests and/or deleted threads/complaints by PM, Profile or IM/Email. Just ask on the forums! Also, I do have Lockerz invites if you want them, feel free to PM me your email if you want one :0

If I help you, or you just like what I said, rep me by clicking the
or under my avatar; it helps me know that my advice actually helped you.

.. But things don't go according to plan! My Actual Rig, 2009:
