Default Driver's refusing to update.

My computer has been freezing and I've found the problem is a video card driver isn't working properly. Steam also says my drivers are out of date, it is also saying the driver details are for Windows vista when i run windows 7.

I had an ATI Radeon HD 5570 card and have downloaded and re-downloaded the drivers from the website multiple times and its refusing to work.

Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

Sorry if what I told you causes any damage. I just did what you did maybe 3 days ago and it worked fine
