Graphic Cards :: Enable AMD Driver Catalyst On Startup Menu?

Jun 26, 2014

Do I need to enable the AMD driver Catalyst on the startup menu and have it running in the background of my machine? IF not necessary, does it benefit in anyway if the software is running?

Graphic Cards :: Missing Tabs In Catalyst?

Aug 7, 2013

Graphic Cards :: AMD Catalyst Control Center Does Not Open?

Jul 23, 2014

I plugged in my new videocard and installed the drivers, but I have a problem. AMD Catalyst Control Center will not open. It's really difficult because I can not do anything to set. I can not set the picture and make wider, so get on all four sides of the black screen (see picture) I must necessarily be in AMD Catalyst Control Center. I've removed the drivers and reinstalled, but I can unfortunately not get in AMD Catalyst Control Center (settings).

Graphic Cards :: AMD / Catalyst Defeats Fn Keys Display Control In 8.1?

Jan 6, 2014

I'm sure I'm not the only one with this issue - Using 8.1 on a notebook with amd Trinity APU [A6-4400m] - all the display related Fn Keys are defeated. The non-display-related Fn + keys work. I can use CCC to manipulate external monitors, brightness, etc ok but it is not a good solution.

Plug in HDMI to external monitor and I get, by default, both.. both set non-optimally. must manually defeat the onboard display, change settings on external, reset overscan, etc etc etc

Graphic Cards :: AMD Catalyst Control Center Does Not Show Settings

Dec 31, 2013

I had to recently refresh Windows 8.1 so I had to go re-download AMD Catalyst Control Center. When I did this, I opened it up and there is only around two category settings which are "Performance" and "Power" and this is with "Advance settings" turned on. I use to have around 7 categories of settings to mess around with. If I recall, one was called "VGA Display Settings" and it let me position my screen, which I direly need.

Where did all the other settings go?

Graphic Cards :: Windows 8 Catalyst Control Center Crash - Lots Of Lag

May 28, 2014

I have an HP Envy Dv7 with windows 8, running an Intel i7 processor with an NVIDIA graphics card. I have had this laptop for about 1 year. Recently I have had an extreme case of lag with anything that i do, whether it be turning it on, signing in, or browsing the internet. I also occasionally get a popup that tells me that my catalyst control center has stopped working and that windows will close the program until it can find a solution. I haven't run a virus scan because it would take days to get that far on the internet to run it. Should I factory reset? Most of my files are on a cloud so if it would work, I can do that. What should I do?

Graphic Cards :: AMD Catalyst Control Center - Pinned And Presets Tabs Only

Jun 9, 2014

I've only got the tabs Pinned and Presets on my AMD Catalyst Control Center. I've done some looking around and I'm sure that I should have more options, more tabs, be able to optimize graphics and stuff for games.

Here's some screenshots

Graphic Cards :: Catalyst Control Center - Host Application Has Stopped Work

Sep 15, 2014

I am having trouble with my computer. A message pops up that Catalyst control center: host application has stopped working. And my PC will inform me when it is working. So I try to restart but it says that the host application is preventing the computer from restarting even though I know that it is not turned on. The problem is that it slows down my computer and even after I think I have solved it it goes back to not working.

The problem has caused me to not being able to use the internet. Also on occasion, when attempting to restart or shut down it took longer than 10 hours (I did not wait for it to complete I then manually shut it down). I have tried resetting it to a date where my computer functioned fine several times but it only solves the problem for a short period.

Graphic Cards :: Driver Update Failed?

May 28, 2013

So I've been trying to update my graphics card. Before I ever got the notification for the update and tried to install it, I could play minecraft, and star craft, and watch Netflix video. When I did install, and was given the failed due to I/O error box, I couldn't play any games or watch any Netflix. Don't know what to do to fix this. Since, I've gone to my manufacturers website and re-installed my driver, but I think the real problem is seeing how I cant connect it. It always says it failed due to the I/O error, so I cant connect it to the video card or something.

My computer is a Toshiba. other info:

Model: Satellite L875DProcessor: AMD A6-4400M APU with Radeon(TM) HD Graphics 2.70 GHzPlenty of RAM (only 5 month old computer)

In Device Manager under Display Adapters It says Microsoft Basic Display Adapter. I just need to know how to change it. I've gone in through device manager, pressed update driver, chose to do it manually and choose a signed driver. When I choose My AMD Radeon Drive and it attempts to install, it always says it failed due to an I/O error. This has been going on for a week or so, and I thought I could fix it, but nothing works.

Graphic Cards :: GTX 780M - Driver Not Working?

Jul 22, 2014

I had opened up GeForce Experience and automatically updated my graphic drivers.The updater crashed while updating.Tried to update again and it gave me the message saying my driver was up to date no need to update.Opened up Steam and tried to play a few games and they all crashed. I also noticed games outside steam were very sluggish.I checked device manager and only my onboard video card was shown. My high performance card was no longer listed under display.

So I uninstalled GeForce experience and the driver then reinstalled an earlier driver version (I could just install the previous version and it should 'roll back').Same problem, my games would crash and things were slow.Removed those drivers and reinstalled earlier ones.Rinse and repeat removing and installing different version drivers 3 times. After being advised not to use GeForce Experience to update my drivers and to go to the manufacturer website I did so. I removed my current video driver and installed the one I downloaded from manufacturer.

Throughout this whole event certain drivers make my video card not appear in device manager and require me to install a different driver on it to get the card to display. Everything worked 100% fine until GeForce Experience crashed on me.

Currently; my video card is shown in device manager the driver seems to be installed and my games do in fact work. The problem is the FPS rate is extremely low. Before this issue I was having around 240 FPS inside certain steam games which I'm now getting 80. Before I updated the graphics driver my entire laptop worked extremely well and I've yet to have any issues. With that being said; I believe that if I could completely uninstall the graphic driver and reinstall the one I had before all this mess occurred things would be back to norm.

How to figure out what version I used to have and I'm not so sure I'm uninstalling the driver completely. (I'm in device manager just selecting uninstall) I'm willing to roll back my laptop a few days but I do not have restore point created. Maybe the driver is not installed correctly?

A different way to uninstall the driver or maybe a way to freshly install the video card, I don't know. Any simple way to restore my laptop to the way it was when I got it I'm willing to do that as a last resort. Everything I have is backed up.

System Specs:
OS. Win 8.1
CPU. i7-4700MQ
GPU. GeForce GTX 780m
Ram. 16gb
Make / Model Dell - Alienware 17.

Graphic Cards :: Windows 8.0 X64 AMD HD7310 Driver?

Sep 15, 2014

Every time I try to download the HD7310 AMD driver instead I get a program that wants to charge me to auto update all my drivers.

I just want to download the latest Windows 8.0 64 bit driver for HD7310. I'm on a Laptop and the video text is horrid. I have catalyst software installed but every time I try to adjust brightness and/or contrast it looks nothing like the sample page. It gets progressively worse the more I attempt to adjust it. I can't believe it's this tough to get legible text on a monitor in this day and age.

Graphic Cards :: Possible To Use WDDM 1.2 Driver For Windows 8?

Apr 5, 2013

I have to reinstall Windows 8 on my laptop for some reason. So after installation finished I went to Device Manager for Installing Drivers. After all the other drivers like Chipset, Network, Audio etc, I went to the Install the Display Driver. There I noticed that under the Display tab my NVIDIA GT 650M is already listed but usually if any Device driver is not installed then it will be shown as Unknown Device or Standard VGA Adapter. But here it shows that it is working and one more Thing I noticed is that in the display tab it was written:-

NVIDIA GT 650M (Microsoft Corporation-WDDM 1.2)

So my question is that should I install the NVIDIA driver from my ASUS Driver And Software Utility Disk or should I keep it as it is? I have heard somewhere that WDDM drivers works better than any other Driver with Windows 8. Is it true? I didn't get any Performance Fall or any BSODs etc and games are also working.

Graphic Cards :: Permanently Get Rid Of Low Resolution Startup

Aug 23, 2013

I installed Windows 8 Pro on a new PC. I ran into a problem where Windows automatically started at the wrong monitor timing. I temporarily used a TV to get to an advanced startup screen that had a check box for low-resolution. That allowed it to work with my display. I now have a video card that correctly supports my display. The problem is, Windows 8 always boots in low resolution and I have to manually change it after each boot.

The problem is that I don't recall what gave me the screen with the menu. It is not the blue screen with press F1 - F9. This was a standard dialog box with check boxes and a note on the side saying any changes would be permanent. But any method that allows it to permanently boot to a normal screen.

Graphic Cards :: Display Driver Stopped Responding

Apr 3, 2013

Original error message: "Display driver NVIDIA Kernel Mode Driver, Version 314.22 stopped responding and has succesfully recovered"

I'm getting this error again and again, mainly in games. (Which seems logic, they use the graphics card most) Games without DX11 will continue after a black screen has occured, but at very low FPS.

Games with DX11 will just crash and stop working after the same black screen.

Graphic Cards :: Can't Install Any Nvidia Driver (various Errors)

May 18, 2014

Yesterday I was playing Dota 2 when suddenly I got a black screen and "display driver has stopped working and has recovered."

Right after, I tried to open the game again. There was no way of getting it working.

Any other game was also not working. The first thing I did was, of course, trying to reinstall the driver.

I tried to install the lastest driver (337.50 beta) and I got only "installer has failed". I also tried with many other older drivers and such, with no result.

Other things I tried:

Clean install (from custom install options)Hard clean install (Deleting all nvidia files before)Display Driver Uninstaller safe mode + reboot and install (same error)Install in safe mode (installer error)Register again WMI files (nothing changed). Take ownership of various folders containing drivers (nothing changed)Directly install INF files using devmgmt (gives error code 28) Changing some registry values regarding vbscript that fixed it for other people. Use Windows Update. "1 update was not installed" + error 80070002sfc /scannowRollback from devmgmtRestore to a early system point where it was working (couldn't restore, no matter what point I choose)

Nothing worked. It just won't install. Now I'm stuck with Microsoft base driver and can't play anything.

Here's the installer log, the only part with errors: Log (full log attached)

Event viewer shows nothing.

My system specs: CPU-Z Validator 4.0

I think it's probably a miracle if I get this working without refresh/reinstall Windows.

Graphic Cards :: Windows 8.1 - AMD Feature Manager Context Menu Option

Feb 12, 2014

I have windows 8.1 and downloading the 13.12 Drivers gave me this program called "AMD Feature Manager". It has a green AMD logo and shows up when I right click anywhere in the desktop, right under "AMD Catalyst Control Center". Whenever I click on it - the program just loads AMD CCC. It seems pretty redundant to include this since I have "AMD Catalyst Control Center" right above it that does the same exact thing. Is there registry edit that can get rid of the option in the Context Menu or can I just uninstall it completely?

Is there a registry edit that can get rid of "AMD Feature Manager" Context Menu option or uninstall it?

Graphic Cards :: ATI Radeon Xpress 1200 Driver For 32 Bit Windows 8 Pro

Dec 6, 2012

I have an Acer Aspire 5515 with an AMD Athlon 2650eprocessor (64 bit) however, I have installed the 32 bit version of Windows 8 Pro. I cannot locate a driver for the ATI Radeon Xpress 1200 Graphics card that is compatible with Windows 8 32 bit. Acer's website is no support, since they only ever sold the Aspire 5515 with XP or Vista 64 bit systems, therefore they cannot provide what I need.

AMD's website is useless. It's auto-detect system for determining which graphics card and operating system I'm using is incompatible with Windows 8, and there is no method for ,e to type in which card and OS I have (you can only select from pull down menus, and the 1200 series and Windows 8 are not listed). Following the links to contact their technical support take you to a video on how to determine what graphics card you have, then right back to the beginning all over again. Worthless.

ATI says I can run a Vista driver in Windows 7, but I can't even find a Vista driver in 32 bit, and I'm using Win 8, not 7. I'm to the point where I'm going to install Windows 7 64 bit and be done with it.

Graphic Cards :: No Video Playback After Graphics Driver Update

Jun 10, 2013

After certain update of my graphics card driver I no longer have a video playback on my video players (including WMP), besides VLC. All the other video player are just able to play the sound of the video file, Nut not the video (the screen just stays black).The thing is that I didn't have this problem previously,, all my video players were able to play all the same video files, which they can't now!

I have the latest AMD Radeon HD video drivers installed. As I mentioned I didn't have this problem before,, with a previous versions of the AMD graphics card driver. This happened to my laptop a while ago already,, Since I have this problem I updated my video drivers 5 or 6 times at least, and no change so far !!!

As I mentioned I have the problem for some time already, during this time I re-installed my Windows couple of times, plus I even changed the version of the windows (7 to 8), for the moment I have the last version of video driver installed, I haven't installed ANY codecs.

I can probably find out from which update of a graphic card driver it started to happen and install the previous version, but I don't wanna miss out on the benefits of the driver updates, since I can still play normally videos on VLC (Only! cuz its probably have integrated codecs?!)

All the other graphic card related tasks are perfectly normal, I play games and so on.
