Graphics card problem/confusion

I keep having crashes and other graphics card problems in Solidworks. Here are my system stats:

Dell Precision T5810

AMD Firepro W4100, 2 GB

16.0 GB Ram

Intel Xenon, 3.10 GHz

Win 10 Pro, 64 bit

 

Solidworks says I should run Driver 15.201.2401, as seen here,

 

Windows shows the proper card, but when I run Solidworks Rx, it is showing the 8.14.01.6463

Is it strange that Solidworks Rx doesn't recognize my system as a Dell T5810? Or that it shows the 8.14.01.6463 driver instead of the 15.201.2401?

 

I also have video card issues in other applications. For example trying to use Google Sheets in Firefox, I've got a problem like this, where it blacks out all the cells.

And running Gmail in Firefox, I get lots of flickering if there are images in an email I am drafting.

 

I really want to solve this problem... Any thoughts?
