Update An Ati Graphics Driver For Vista

ATI Technologies, acquired by Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), is a major manufacturer of computer graphics cards. A driver is a software package that provides communication between the video card and the Windows operating system. Outdated drivers often cause various video artifacts — a corrupted picture, for example — or even Windows Vista system failure (a “blue” screen). Update the graphic drivers frequently to ensure the optimal functionality of your video card.
