Just installed Windows using boot camp. I downloaded the drivers using boot camp. After installing the display says: Mobile PC Display. I have 15 inch Macbook Pro. What display driver do I need to get the right resolution?

Update: Okay. My bad. Went to Genius bar at apple they told me that Mobile PC Display is how Macbook sees your display on Windows. Resolution is 1440 x 900 what my resolution on Macbook. There is no missing driver after all.

Your MacBook has a AMD Radeon HD 6490M video card per your properties screen. You'll need to download the driver from AMD's website.

For Windows 7:

For your display driver you might need to update your Bootcamp drivers which you can get from Apple's Boot Camp Support Drivers.

Do I install this when running Windows or OS X? When I try to install it on Windows AMD installer tells me "AMD Catalyst Mobility cannot be downloaded due to incompatible hardware/software on your computer. Your computer does not contain proper graphics adapter." –  dev.e.loper Sep 27 '11 at 13:45
    
I'd try running the Boot Camp update first if you haven't, that might fix the compatibility problem with the AMD driver. –  Aaron Lake Sep 27 '11 at 13:53
    
What do you mean by Boot Camp update? I've tried to see if there is some update button on boot camp assistant but there isn't. When I click on apple software updates it doesn't display any items for boot camp. It looks like I have most up to date boot camp version 4.0 –  dev.e.loper Sep 27 '11 at 14:46
