If you go here, there's an option on the right hand side to Automatically Detect and Install, you will need to download the small app and run it.

Did you go through AMD's Download Driver page and chose the proper driver matching your Operating System and card type? Its critical you choose the mobile driver (6730M). That means the driver is for your laptop model, not a desktop.

Could I suggest that you uninstall the driver in device manager.
Reboot your machine, windows will install a generic driver?
When windows is fully running, now try 'update driver'.

One other thing to remember is perhaps don't try to update drivers or hardware that does not require it
