For the people asking why they released 5.2, keep in mind ati releases a new catalyst driver every month.
You find your version of catalyst by going to the advanced setting on your display properties and select the 'options' tab. If you have the catalyst control center panel then open the catalyst control center, select the 'help' tab, and from there select the 'graphics software' tab.

Went into device manager and it says my ati x800 has driver version 188.8.131.5297. Would this catalyst driver be better?
Edit: It was late I think I mixed his post up with yours on needing a new bios version.
