Does you laptop have Intel/AMD switching graphics?
Drivers installed fine on my AMD APU + GPU laptop, perhaps they are worried that Intel is too flakey?
That's right, actually they didn't support ATI+Intel for a while.
The AMD homepage only shows their notebook check tool, so you had to guess the deep links for Mobility drivers.
Now there are some alternatives:
- don't update at all
- manually extract and copy files
- disable driver signing
- split Intel and AMD driver, which confuses misc. programs, e.g. VLC media player uses the GPU that is not active
- send the notebook to hell and use an Android tablet on the road
