I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer:AMD is working on Catalyst beta drivers for 'The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt' and 'Project Cars'

"AMD graphics card owners that have tried playing The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt or Project Cars are likely already aware of the fact that both titles run like crap on Radeon hardware."

At the risk of pointing out the obvious, "runs like crap" doesn't strike me as professional an expression as "runs terribly" or "are both exceptionally poor performers on..." It may convey the sentiments of the accompanying article comments, but those are supposed to be crude.

Ok, so I have taken the big leap of faith in Microsoft and put Vista on one of my systems. After regretting the decision nearly immediately, I opted to just duke it out with my overloaded computer and try to get this to run. I have searched through numerous tech help forums looking for references to the ATI drivers, and it seems that everyone is able to get their graphics card to run. I found my card on a list of Vista supported cards, and downloaded the Vista drivers from the ATI website. After some minimal problems getting the drivers installed, and a reinstall just for luck (although the installer informed me that everything was up to date and running), I am still exactly where I started - without my Radeon. I can't even get the Catalyst Control Panel to open from my desktop (I double click the icon, or right click to Open, or go straight from the program file, and it basically just sits and blinks at me). The kicker is that of the numerous ATI programs in my Installed programs list, Catalyst is listed absolutely nowhere. Any suggestions?

Clean installed Windows 10 Pro. Installed ProjectCars and the updates to it.
The game will start, but when selecting a racetrack to begin race or qual or testing, it crashes to desktop without any error. Have tried to update everything, windows update, and Nvidia graphic driver.

Anybody got a clue?

Answer:Project Cars don't work anymore

Any research online shows this game had issues months back with Windows 8.1 patches did not fix, assuming it worked on 8.1 for you ?

My PC works normally during normal browsing and office work. When playing some games like The Witcher 2 and not 2D games like FTL, they sometimes crash to desktop, and sometimes I get BSODs. SF diagnostic tool report is attached.

Temps appear normal. CPU is 35-40 idle, 65 or so during gaming. GPU is about 65 idle, 70-75 gaming.

Example of two recent crashes from whocrashed. Most recent was while playing SimCity5

Bug check description: This is the general bug check code for fatal errors found by Driver Verifier.
The driver switched stacks using a method that is not supported by the operating system. The only supported way to extend a kernel mode stack is by using KeExpandKernelStackAndCallout. This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver which cannot be identified at this time.

Surprise... Due to overwhelming feedback on the Private CTP1 build we decided to make the CTP2 release a Public Beta!

In order to keep the BETA and CTP feedback separated from the Support and Discussion thread we created this new thread dedicated to discuss BETA and CTP builds. Otherwise people might think reported issues in the BETA and CTP builds are also in the stable releases.

We need your feedback to make sure the new HitmanPro.Alert mitigations run alongside other security products.

New Features in version 3.7

Real-time Anti-Malware
Works with the HitmanPro cloud.
Credential Theft Protection
Preventing theft of authentication passwords and hash information from memory, registry and disk. Prevents Mimikatz-style attacks.
Local Privilege Guard
Prevents exploits of the operating system kernel. Prevents an attacker from using the privilege information of another process.
Code Cave mitigation
Stops backdoors in trusted code.
Sticky Keys mitigation
Prevents misuse of the Microsoft sticky key feature. Usually used by attackers to gain persistence.
Asynchronous Procedure Call (APC) mitigation
Stops code injection via APC (ex. DoublePulsar and Atom Bombing attack).

Mozilla Releases Fifth Beta Of Firefox 3.6
Mozilla has started spreading a new beta release of Firefox 3.6 to worldwide ftp mirror sites only a day after releasing updates for their Firefox 3.1 and 3.5 web browser series. The new version of the web browser is as usually available for all supported operating systems and languages. The release notes lead to a non existing page at the moment which makes it difficulty to find information on the changes that have been introduced in the new beta version.
The missing release notes are an indication that it will take anywhere from 24-48 hours before the new version of Firefox 3.6 will get officially announced by Mozilla. This will also be the time frame for the discovery of the new version by the automatic update check in the web browser.

With OS X 10.11 El Capitan set to launch at the end of the month, Apple has already started working on the first update for its latest Mac operating system. The early OS X 10.11.1 build was released last week for developers, and is now also available to those of us who are enrolled in the public beta program.
Given that it is a relatively minor update, OS X 10.11.1 El Capitan is not expected to introduce any major changes. Nonetheless, let's take a look at what's new.

The official changelog, that is available when accepting the update through App Store, lists "stability, compatibility, and security" improvements. But that is not all that is new.

The long awaited beta 2 of Windows Defender, formerly Windows AntiSpyware has now been released.

The new versions sports a new user interface similar to what is found in Windows Vista. The UI has been redesigned to make normal tasks easy, a better warning system and to be less intrusive.

Real time protection and monitoring has been enhanced to monitor more points of weakness in the Windows operating system.

The latest version now supports x64 operating systems and will run on users machines with or without administrator rights, something that was always an issue with Beta 1.

Microsoft's Windows Defender is one of if not the best solution against spyware and adware on Windows machines to date.

for people that haven't heard of Project Spark, it's a "game" that allows you to build games without having to know any programming. So in the sizzle reel they showed for Project Spark, you can create a game like Geometry Wars or Marble Madness or Space Invaders or a tower defense game or a platform game... etc. etc.

there's a beta signup now...

Answer:beta signup for Project Spark for Windows 8, Xbox One, 360

they demo'ed Project Spark at Build 2013!

You can design games on either Windows 8, Xbox 360, or Xbox One and then play on any of the other platforms. You can even start designing on one platform, switch to another platform, and then continue designing.

You can even make touchscreen games! Now I'm curious if you can make Kinect games. That would be very cool.

I am trying to uninstall the Nvidia beta drivers but when I try to do it my screen goes black and the computer is at a stand still.

I even tried to let it go over night unstalling the drivers but it still didn't work.

I am uninstalling the drivers by going to the device manager.

N-Trig Releases Multi-Touch Drivers (Beta) for Windows 7 RC

N-Trig has released a beta of the multi-touch drivers for Windows 7 RC targeted at developers.

There are packages for the Dell Latitude XT and XT2 and the HP TouchSmart TX2.

N-trig DuoSense™ Multi-Touch Beta Package (2.59) for Windows 7 Release Candidate

The DuoSenseTM multi-touch package for Windows 7 Release Candidate enables ISVs and developers to experience the Hands-onTM effect, and allows software applications to be developed with integral multi-touch capabilities.

In this package, more than two fingers can be used simultaneously as input devices.

This package supports Windows 7 protocol only. In Windows 7, multi-touch gesture-recognition is identified by the operating system.

If you are a developer and have DuoSense technology enabled and the Windows 7 RC (build 7100) version installed on either your Dell Latitude XT, your Latitude XT2 or your HP TouchSmart tx2, you can download and run the multi-touch package.

Answer:N-Trig Releases Multi-Touch Drivers for Windows 7 RC

Has anyone been able to test this on a Latitude XT2?

I've tryied it and it seems to be very buggy. The single touch interation is now terrible as any attempt to make a straight line results on a line with a lot of interruptions. So, dragging a window, for example, is interrupted like 2 inches away from where you started.

I'd like to hear if someone is experiencing the same behaviour.

NVIDIA has rolled out a new WHQL driver update specifically targeted at Windows 10 systems.

This particular update focuses on GameWorks VR headset, adding tweaks and bug fixes with the driver description stating:

?NVIDIA continues to work closely with VR headset and game developers to deliver amazing VR games and applications. This Game Ready driver includes the latest GameWorks VR tweaks, bug fixes, and optimizations to ensure you have the ultimate VR gaming experience.

In addition, support has been added for "GameWorks VR 1.1 including VR SLI support for OpenGL applications and support for the latest Oculus SDK."

Some Windows 10 users have not had the best experience relating to the display driver while upgrading to the new OS; however, many of these issues have now been addressed, so it's worth grabbing the update for your system.

You can grab either the 32- or 64-bit drivers at the links below.

Answer:NVIDIA releases GeForce 361.43 WHQL drivers for Windows 10

Sorry if this is off-topic, but I have been using Wagnard's DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller) for years now to do actual 'clean' installs of the Nvidia drivers each and every update and life has been much happier. Great especially if a new release screws up and you want to cleanly go back to the previous driver. Much more thorough than picking 'clean' install from the nvidia installer tool, and safer than letting than letting some generalized registry cleaner at your registry.

It was the goto solution for the many people who could not get Fallout 4 running on release day. It won't work in every single case, of course, but nothing is guaranteed.

If you want to check it out (it's free and highly regarded by gamers) he posts new builds in his forum at: Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU) Download & Support - Wagnardmobile Forum

You'll also find it on various download sites but I get mine direct from his forum for safety.

Here's his description of what DDU is and does:

"What is Display Driver Uninstaller?
Display Driver Uninstaller is a driver removal utility that can help you completely remove AMD/NVIDIA/Intel graphics card drivers and packages from your system, without leaving leftovers behind (including registry keys, folders and files, and the driver store).

While people may not have had the best experience upgrading from Windows 7 or 8.1 where there is a Nvidia card involved, the company has now rolled out a new set of WHQL drivers for Windows 10. The new drivers, which are now at version 355.60, have been released in both 32 and 64-bit flavors and clock in at 217 and 279mb respectively.

There are no major changes to be found in the release notes, which you can see below;

Just in time for the preview of Ashes of the Singularity, this new GeForce Game Ready driver ensures you'll have the best possible gaming experience. This driver also supports the Beta version of the GameWorks VR software development kit (SDK). As a result, users will be able to enjoy the benefits of GameWorks VR with supporting applications and headsets for the first time.

If you have yet to upgrade to Windows 10, it's worth pointing out that Microsoft does support most of the recent Nvidia cards, although many people have had trouble getting the driver to install after the upgrade. A series of reboots will eventually automatically detect the card and install the correct driver, or you can grab them below and do it manually.

Nvidia Releases Updated Linux Drivers for the Old GeForce 8 and 9 Series

Lots of fixes have been implemented in this release
Nvidia has updated the Legacy branch of the Linux drivers and developers have fixed quite a few issues. This is a driver aimed at older hardware, so if you just got your shiny and new Titan video card, this driver will be of no use to you.

Spoiler: Nvidia 340.93 Changelog
- Fixed a bug that caused the X server to crash if an OpenGL application tried to allocate a drawable when GPU-accessible memory is exhausted.
- Fixed a bug that could cause an Xid error when terminating a video playback application using the overlay presentation queue in VDPAU.
- Updated nvidia-installer to avoid recursing too deeply into kernel source trees under /usr/lib/modules, mirroring an existing restriction on recursion under /lib/modules.
- Fixed a rare deadlock condition when running applications that use OpenGL in multiple threads on a Quadro GPU.
- Fixed a kernel memory leak that occurred when looping hardware- accelerated video decoding with VDPAU on Maxwell-based GPUs.
- Fixed a bug that caused the X server to crash if a RandR 1.4 output provided by a Sink Output provider was selected as the primary output on X.Org xserver 1.17 and higher.
- Fixed a bug that caused waiting on X Sync Fence objects in OpenGL to hang indefinitely in some cases.
- Fixed a bug that prevented OpenGL from properly recovering from hardware errors or sync object waits that had timed out.

Open question, discussion, and somewhat of a problem.

I've recently been having various issues with my pc, among the things I tried to do was update my graphics card driver: found the newest driver crashed madly, and rolled back. It's brought to mind a simple question:

What benefits are there in going for the newer ATI Catalyst drivers compared to the one defaulted by windows but which hasn't updated in 3 years.

Generally what could have changed? Compatablity? If it works it works. Stablity? Performance? Heat management?

Since it takes me 2 hours to download a driver (slow connection) I'm sticking on my w7 default ones: I know they work. It does make me ask though if there is a benefit to upgading after i've got my PC stable again.

Answer:Windows Drivers vs ATI Catalyst Drivers

newer drivers are made to improve performance and add new features in the graphic control panel and fixes bugs and issues that were in the previous drivers.

i just installed the latest release of the catalyst 8.10 drivers hoping to get a few more frames in Crysis and some decent FarCry2 support and i'm having a pretty chronic problem...

First, i installed them from the standard 3 in 1 package and then i reboot and the res won't go above 640x480x4... so i restart and then as soon as i get past the welcome screen in wondows (ie as soon as the driver should be kicking in) the whole thing goes to sh*te! my whole rig just freezes up and i get some crazy oscillating static-type noise and it doesnt go anywhere... so i reboot, try again, same thing

then i got the 3 separate installers (figured maybe it was just some stupid tech at ATI couldn't compile an installer right) and installed each component separately (after uninstalling the original 8.10 pack), restarting between each component... restart... same issue straight off the bat...

I've gone back to the 8.9 drivers now, but im really just wondering if anyone else has/had the same problem or knows any way around it. (and, no, i dont really wanna hear "Get a GTX 260 Core 216... nv hasnt got any problems" lol)

They came out a few days ago. But I've noticed that the ATI overdrive is quite a bit different. The 10.2 drivers allowed the GPU to automatically step down to 600MHz from 750MHz, when idle. The memory could be run as low as 450MHz (though it had to be switch manually), and the gauge would report ice cold temperatures at idle. This is a 4870 I'm talking about, and underclocking the ram was almost like turning the card into a 4850 at the flick of a switch. Great for when you're not using the video card much. And some games will obviously run at 60fps with the memory underclocked like that anyway. It was pretty cool, even though you had to switch it manually.

Anyway, I notice in the 10.3 catalyst, that the GPU won't go lower than 750MHz, even at idle (even though you can set the slider as low as 600MHz). And the Memory is the same, in that it won't go any lower than 900MHz.

Anyone else noticed this at all?

I have a Radeon 5850 installed in my desktop and my laptop has a 5650 card. The catalyst driver suite installs without a hitch on my laptop which is running Windows 7 HP (x64) but when I try to install the latest or previous versions of the same driver suite on my desktop which is running Windows 7 Ultimate (x32) the installation mentions errors and in the log it states the driver has not installed. In order to install the drivers I have to do it manually through device manager. I have used Driver Sweeper to erase all traces of the old driver files inside safe mode. I always uninstall my old drivers before putting in the new versions. Anyone know what is going on here and how to fix it?

Answer:ATI Catalyst Drivers won't install :(

Ok, firstly, alarm bells started ringing when i noticed that one device (laptop/pc) is 32bit, and the other 64bit. If you are using the same instal file on both machines, thats probably the problem!

If I'm reading that wrong, then sorry.

What I would do is firstly try the manufacturers website of your graphics cards for the latest drivers. If not, try windows update. If not, did you have drivers with the pc/laptop? If not, run dxdiag, save all info to text file and upload here for me to see.

I had an nvidia card before (8800 gts) and their drivers would allow me to run a certain .exe file with different video settings (AA and AF).

I play cs and battlefield bad company 2 and want cs to have 4x AA and 4x AF. But, I want BFBC2 to run at "application setting".

Anyone know how to do this in the ATI drivers? I haven't owned an ATI since the pre-AMD years.

Answer:Catalyst Drivers AA and AF Profiles?

Pretty sure you do this in the Profiles option ATI Catalyst? Control Center - Features has an explanation

I've just gone to ATI to update my graphics card drivers, and noticed it's Catalyst 4.1? Last month it was version 4.9 and I've got version 4.6 already installed!click hereCatalyst Version 4.9 was dated in September and this version (4.1) is dated October? Another version 4.1 was available in January. I've got a Radeon 9700pro.Anyone have any idea what's going on?

Answer:ATI's latest Catalyst drivers?

I installed this version - I think it's just a bad numbering system and actually is version 4.10 the previous being 4.09 etc..

so i noticed this issue about 4 months ago when 11.6 came out. i tried to install it and it did just fine. no errors. but then i restart my pc (like it tells you to) and my resolution is all off and i get a error saying that i didnt install the appropriate driver (i did) or i dont have a amd gpu (clearly do). i can open ccc and when i do it is very basic. no gpu options just 4 tabs. and it is in advanced.
So heres what i have done.
Reinstalled the drivers many times
uninstalled through amds options in reg mode and in safe mode.
Have ran driver sweeper erased all amd and ati files in regular mode and then again in safe mode restarting everytime. still no dice
manually set the driver in the device manager(went to my 5850 and did it from there)
i plan on buying battle field 3 soon but if i cant download the latest drivers i cant update it to get hot fixes or anything.
also 4 months ago i called amd tech support they told me to wait for 11.7 to come out and it will be fixed...11.8 came out i called again and they said wait for 11.9...yeah ill get right on that......
any ideas before i take the gtx460 out of my gfs pc and see if i can update there drivers? because if the 460 works and can update i guess im going to assume its my card and rma it
this is getting really annoying

Answer:Issues with going from 11.5 catalyst drivers to 11.8 (or any other)

Hi branflake welcome to SF

Please follow these steps in this order,

Do the ati catalyst remove cleaning,restart.

Download and install software\driver 10.11,during installation choose custom and untik\disable registration and free game,finish,restart.
Previous ATI Catalyst

Download and install software\driver 11.8 and again during the installation choose custom and this time untik\disable only the new catalyst 2,finish,restart.
ATI Radeon

With the above steps you will have all the new software\drivers without the new catalyst 2.

Though you will have the catalyst 1 to control your gpu.

Finish with the above steps an post back with any results.

I've been having quite a few crashes in a lot of my games (mostly the ones designed for nvidia e.g San Andreas, Sims 2 etc.) referencing a 0xc0000005 fatal crash. My PC does not restart, simply crashes to desktop. I checked google and it says that 0xc0000005 errors in games are usually 70% of the time due to device drivers with around 50% caused by Graphics drivers. I'm currently running the latest catalyst 5.7 drivers and was wondering if anyone knew of any stable catalyst versions which I could test? I'm pretty sure it's graphics drivers as Farcry and Half Life 2 run like charms.

{EDIT} SPEAK OF THE DEVIL! Just received a BSOD, ran the minidump through windbg and it came out as most probably caused by ati2dvag.dll :evil: Anyone who can infiltrate the minidump further to help me with my problem is willing to try.

{EDIT2} Ok So I degraded to 3.1 (my original discs drivers) and everything has gone haywire, windows freezes, restarts everything!!

Answer:Stable catalyst drivers

Ok I'm going to upgrade to 5.5, if I can recall correctly my PC problems all started back when I installed 5.6 before playing San Andreas. Will report on the situation.

{EDIT} Ok so I degraded to 5.5 and tested out Warcraft 3 (primary crasher) and have had no problems, no BSOD's, Farcry looks a bit less exquiste but is still amazing and tranquil as ever. I checked the net, apparently ATI made some major changes when developing cat drivers 5.6 & 5.7. When 5.8 come out later this month I'll give em a go.
