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

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

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.

Answer:BIN Files Witcher 3 wild hunt

"The BIN format is an older file type that contains all of the information from the CD or DVD it originated from. You cannot open a BIN file directly; in order to use it, you will need to either burn it to a disc or mount it to a virtual drive. You can also convert the BIN file into an ISO file, which allows you to use many more programs to burn or mount it." click here

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?

Hey all

So Im trying to install drivers for my laptop and so far have had no luck. I have a Gateway laptop that shipped with 32-bit windows vista, and since then I have installed 64-bit Windows 7 pro. It has a radeon hd2300 graphics card. I'm not sure why, but the catalyst installer flies through installation and says "completed successfully", but nothing is in the C:/Program Files/ATI Technologies folder and the driver version stays the same.

2) bestcom changed tis name to point of view

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.

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 recently downloaded the ATI Catalsy 5.6 drivers, but I'm having some issues, so I'm trying to see if reverting to an older version might help. I have two questions:

1. How can I safely uninstall the graphics card driver?

2. Where can I find older versions to download?

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)

EDIT: OK... now its doing a similar thing with the 8.9 drivers... except there's no crazy noise and it doesn't totally freeze... when the driver should kick in, the screen just goes black and the fans go absolutely nuts

Any comments appreciated

It is their all in one driver bundle. The the Detonator from Nvidia, this is ATI's. The only thing it can do it update you to a newer driver, really. There is no real risk on this.

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?

Hi, i was wondering whether it was possible to install ATi Catalyst without the drivers, the reason for this being, that Catalyst has a better overclocking feature than the software im currently using, the software I am currently using is ASUS SmartDoctor. I am using this as the ATi drivers are (strangely) not compatible with ASUS modified cars, so gameplay cuts out often, now I've installed SmartDoctor, i miss the really effective overclocking feature. Although the drivers work. Any Help ??

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.

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.

Hey all, I've got an older 4850 that's perpetually stuck with CCC 11.2 drivers. I had issues when I originally put it in where it wouldn't install drivers at all which required a boot into safe mode alongside driver sweeper and some deleting of mucked up files in a system folder. But now when I go to do the automatic update through CCC, it says everything installs correctly but it doesn't actually install the latest drivers. And I've uninstalled CCC and reinstalled to no avail. I'm thinking something is broken deep down but I wouldn't know where to begin to look. Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Answer:HD 4850 won't take new Catalyst drivers

Zach, have you tried driver sweeper in Safe mode? The reason I ask is that the drivers need to be COMPLETELY removed for a new install to work correctly.

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.

Is anybody else having trouble with the Catalyst drivers with Vista x64?
I have tried reinstalling, tried using both 7.12 and 7.11 and still having issues.
I receive and error while doing anything visually enhanced such as trying to play a game.
Also I am getting white horizontal lines across both of my LCD monitors at 1440x900 resolution.
The GPU temps are well within the respected range only hitting about 46C load, so the card is not overheating and it is also at stock speeds/voltage.
This leads me to believe it is likely a compatibility issue with the 64bit version of Vista, as the same card ran quite well on the 32bit version.

right, here goes:

this morning, i decided that i wanted to control the fan on my X800GTO, and get accurate temperature reads. to do this, I had to install the asus "enhanced" catalysts. i removed ALL of the old stuff, and so installed the new asus drivers from scratch. when i restarted the asus tool for viewing temeratues etc said it could not function properly, due to the asus drivers not being installed.

so, i repeated the whole process, uninstall the lot, restart, install, restart, same thing. i then thought blow this, i will just put the regular catalysts back on. removed, restart, installed, restart, OK, i will try fear. plays fine. i then loaded the catalyst control panel, and it said:

"The necessary OpenGL extensions for showing the preview are not installed."

And the scection where it normally shows the car driving down the road was blank.

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

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.

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.

AMD ATi Catalyst 9.5 Drivers Leaked

Some sites obtained copies of the 9.5 release of ATi Catalyst software and made it available for downloading. According to the AMD forums, they aren?t officially released until Monday so YMMV with the ones that are out there right now.

To my unhappiness I have come to find out that there is no official version of Catalyst drivers for Windows 2003. Knowing that Windows 2003 has great compatibility capabilites I set Compatibility Mode to Windows XP for the ATI panels, so they could start. Well, the drivers work, but most of the games I usually play are so choppy its impossible to play (Like Diablo2, I would never think that it would work worse than an old GeForce4MX ).
So my question is, would this be caused by the OS, or is the fault of Catalyst 3.9 drivers?
BTW. my card is Radeon 9600 PRO.

Answer:Bad Catalyst drivers for Windows2003?

I can't get any of my games to work properly in Win2003 either. Guess the comptibility mode isnt all its cracked up to be after all.

I updated the driver for my R9 290 yesterday, and now my drivers aren't detecting.

When I boot the system, ASUS's GPU Tweak says it cannot load the driver .dlls. Running the AMD autodetect driver utility results in "We were unable to find a driver for your system". The advanced settings under "screen resolution" (right clicking on desktop) shows "unavailable" for every entry under "adapter", and there is no "VGA Adapter" heading in device manager.

The "sleep" and "hibernate" functions are also grayed out, which I assume is due to the screensaver not functioning (it says the card can't run Direct3d).

I have tried uninstalling all of the AMD drivers and reinstalling both new and older drivers, but the problem persists.

I'm really stumped on what to do here. Any help would be appreciated.

Answer:AMD Drivers Not Detected after Catalyst 14.12 Update

Have you tried Display Driver Uninstaller?

It will reboot you into safe mode and wipe out all traces of the AMD drivers, then you can attempt reinstalling the Omega drivers.

Hi all,

First post here. I'll summarise:

I was a long time Windows user but decided to give Ubuntu a go at the start of this year. After some teething problems (caused, I think, by having an SSD and a UEFI motherboard rather than standard BIOS) After some messing about re-formating and creating the necessary partitions with a gParted LiveDisk I managed to get Windows 7 installed along side Ubuntu on my 120GB SSD. At the time, I simply installed Windows, went back and installed Ubuntu and then never felt the need to go back to Windows as I had no need for anything it offered.

Cut to now - I wanted to go back in to Windows to play some games that won't run on Ubuntu (at least not without faffing about with WINE for a very long time) so hopped back in to my other partition.
Once that had been done I went in to Windows to install updates/drivers/anti-virus etc before I could game on it.

I have an ATI HD7970 card so went to download the proprietary drivers, which is where I encountered a problem. When I installed the drivers, I'd load in to Windows and be presented with just my desktop background present, explorer.exe did not seem to have loaded and I couldn't even Control-Alt-Del to open up the task manager and start explorer afresh.

After a bit of googling I found the driver release notes ( which say I need to install SP1 and .Net SP1 before installing the drivers.

So, I restored Windows to pre-driver ins... Read more

Answer:ATI Catalyst 13.4 Drivers Installation Problem

You have a 7970, but had given up on Windows?

I would just wipe and drop 7 again, since you hadn't used it, could try System Recovery Console from the install DVD, just boot into it like a normal install but do repair and of course point to the right partition, if asked.

Basically with 7, you don't need to install a lot of drivers EXCEPT for video card after installing it, unless it's something out of the ordinary/NEW, to run. [huge amount of drivers on that install DVD]

XP of course, total opposite.

7's Boot Manager is coming up and you are choosing the OS at boot time, right? That's how it should be.

See this Tutorial:

Dual Boot Windows 7 and Ubuntu

If your windows 7 install actually allows a command prompt, I would do:

SFC /scannow

To verify integrity of the windows install files.

Others with more experience with dual booting may chime in also, I have Linux Mint 14 running on my old PC, I refuse to use Linux on my main PC, I just know I will rarely touch it.

My PC is OEM: My motherboard is AsusTek P7P55D-E LX Rev 1.xx with Intel Core i5 760. My thinking up to now was to use the AMD Catalyst center for its driver updates but am wondering if this is something else

Answer:Is AMD Catalyst installing the wrong drivers?

Installing AMD Catalyst left to its own devices will install "AMD HDMI Output (AMD High Definition Audio Device)" the problem with this is if left as the default (or one of 2 defaults) there will be no sound whatsoever in Windows sounds or any media player. I must go to my original "Speakers High Definition Audi Device" and select it as default in order to hear sounds again. This tells me that Catalyst is installing the wrong drivers OR installing drivers where there shouldn't be any. or something is happening that I am not aware of. If anyone can shed light on this I would appreciate it--since this would mean that whatever drivers I am using are as old as my computer since AMD is installing the ''wrong'' ones. Thank you

I have Windows Vista on my laptop, but for some reason ATI's catalyst drivers arent supported for Vista with my Mobility Radeon X1400 chipset (instead it says to see my laptop manufacturer for drivers). Dell (my laptop manufacturer) however hasnt updated their drivers since early 2007.

Catalyst drivers for my chipset are supported for XP though, so would it be viable for me to run the drivers in XP compatibility mode on Vista?

Answer:Will XP's ATI Catalyst drivers work on Vista?
