    Got a VPZ2Z190X (Z2 I guess).

    Spent over $3k for this thing and Diablo 3 keeps crashing. Support tells me I need to update my graphics drivers, so I got the AMD site and their autodetect app tells me I don't have a supported adapter.

    Not sure what that means.

    So I try and download the AMD Radeon HD6xxxM driver, and there's no option other than the damn autodetect tool that puts me back at square one.

    What do I do?

    *Update*

    Just found this: http://esupport.sony.com/US/p/swu-download.pl?mdl=VPCZ2190X&upd_id=6849&os_group_id=6

    Is this the right driver? Seems kind of old, almost 1 year since it's been updated - that can't be right can it?

    Sony hardly ever updates it's drivers and AMD doesn't support notebook drivers, especially not 'special' ones like the Z.

    Have a look here: http://forum.notebookreview.com/son...er-set-all-switchable-intel-ati-graphics.html

    These are AMD drivers slightly modified by the community to run properly on the Z2. They're the best you can do. I'd give them a shot! They're much, much more recent than the Sony ones. Be sure to thoroughly read and follow this guide: http://drivers.leshcatlabs.org/manuals/english-manual/
