Default Reflection/Blur issue

Hey! I hope this hasn't been answered yet; I did a quick search and didn't see anything that applies to my issue, I think.

I seem to have a problem with certain reflections or shaders. I have only noticed this issue in two separate places. one being underwater and the other when in the poison gas slow-motion sequence. When I am in the slow-mo sequence, the screen becomes hazy/blurry/whatever like it's supposed to, but when I'm moving around sometimes, the pixels blur (i.e. leaving a trail of blurred pixels, akin to a smear of sorts). The same problem occurs when underwater, looking up through the surface. I haven't seen this issue when looking through the forcefield doors or other water reflections.

I have Direct X 9 installed and the stock drivers that came with my laptop. I have an ATI x1600 graphics card, and I went to update the drivers on the site, and the utility said it was unsupported. What do I do? Should I install the Omega drivers, or force the Catalyst drivers to install anyways? Is it possible to use the desktop drivers for a notebook card? I understand that the mobile architechure is simply ported over and tweaked/redesigned for mobile usage, so I don't know if it's okay to get the drivers intended for the desktop card that my GPU was built off of.

Whew. Long post. I hope that made sense, and I didn't make an ass out of myself.

Thanks,

Joel.

I'd say try the Omega ones, and also try downloading the latest and get this tool.

It does not say it supports your card, but it may.

I cannot be responsible for anything that breaks

If it breaks, can't I just roll back the drivers so it works again? I did that with my old Nvidia card on my desktop computer when the particle effects went screwy.

Edit: My card isn't supported by that tool. Yet...

Downloaded the Omega drivers, will try them out sometime this weekend, most likely.

Thank you very much, Sarkie! You're a great help.

I'm still running the Omega's based on the 6.2's, I've not seen a reason to update them yet, though the Cat 6.8's look good (from a benchmark point of view), Back on topic, Joel you didn't turn anything off? in the video card Driver settings?
