Hi,
I am receiving the following almost every other day:

AMD/ATI GPU: Upgrade to the latest driver to process tasks using your computer's GPU

According to Windows and the AMD site, I have the latest driver. My guess is that the driver is specific to this model of HP laptop, and perhaps I can't get the 'latest' driver. Any suggestions?

Here are my specs:

HP Pavilion dv7 laptop
Windows 7
CPU: Intel i7 Q720
GPU: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650
GPU Driver Packaging Version: 8.771.1-100909a-105895C-HP

Thanks,
K-Theorist

Your driver is about 2.5 years out of date and definitely does not support OpenCL.

Download this and see what it says.
