Use whatever driver that works for you.
catalyst control center won't open for me. I have tried everything under the sun. searched for hours on the internet. Please someone help. I click to open it, the circle just runs for a couple of seconds and then nothing. I have unistalled several times, cleaned registry. etc no luck grr.
This is not the thread for your sort of issue, but Admin permitting, I'll post a one shot possible solution to your problem. Try it and if it doesn't work, start a new thread in the appropriate place with your details... and the fact that the below didn't work.
1] Download the latest Driver Sweeper from here, save it wherever you want, then Pin it to your Start Menu, for ease of use purposes; as in when your resolution is all fucked up and your desktop is squished, you can just launch it from your Start Menu.
2] Download the latest Catalyst Driver from here, and the latest CAP from here, save them wherever you want, then Pin them to your Start Menu, also for ease of use purposes.
3] If you have any profiles you want to save, copy the ACE folder located at C:\Users\YourUserNameGoesHere\AppData\Local\ATI\ACE somewhere else.
4] Run the Uninstall program for whatever Catalyst stuff you have installed from your Control Panel > Programs and Features menu. If you have both drivers and CAPs installed, uninstall the Application Profiles first, ignore the warnings to restart (Click "No"/"I'll do it later"), then uninstall the Catalysts last. Restart when the CATALYST uninstall says so, and boot...
5] ...into Safe Mode, run Driver Sweeper, analyze ONLY the AMD-Display option, Clean whatever it finds. Restart when it asks you to, boot into Windows normally.
6] Run the Catalyst driver from your Start Menu, blah blah blah, restart, boot normally, run the CAP, blah blah blah, restart, boot normally, enjoy your working system.
I can't install the profile package 11.11 it keeps giving errors for some reason .
Try re installing the 11.11 drivers, they have the 11.11 #1 CAP included in them.
No luck. Guess its time to reinstall windows.
new CAP out, OP updated
New CAP out, OP updated
just like the front page says, new CAP out, OP updated
Thank you, Thank you very much Sir!
If Im still on the 11.9 drivers is this new cap going to be a pain?
I shall ask my question over but in a different way. Im on CCC 11.9 so should I use the latest cap or does one need to stick the the 11.9 series cap? Or being the latest can I use it or not?
Sorry I didn't notice your question sooner, but as the CAP is released individually from the driver I believe newer CAPs should work fine with older drivers.
No worries Dark, and thanks! I'll give it a go.
new CAP available, OP updated
OP updated for new CAP
im a day behind, but new CAP out
Have a question,
I installed new drivers today, didn't like, reverted back to 12.1. With 12.1 I was able to set the power control setting to +20% for both my 6950's.
Now that i'm back to 12.1 I can only set the power control setting to +20% to only one of my 6950s, not both at the same time.
When I try for GPU2, it just goes back to 0% but remains +20% for GPU1.
Any ideas on to force it to stay at +20%?
Thanks in advance.
Got it working. Forgot that I had to disable ULPS first. Thanks anyway ^^
Guys sorry for my outdated question. But i need to learn. I remember old days nvidia used something like that.
I am using quite long time AMD. And i never used those CAP things, Yesterday installed them but i didnt see any games list in catalyst.Am i doing something wrong? And how can i actually use it?
I am using 7950. Any tip appreciated. Thanks.
Go to gaming, 3d gaming settings and at the very bottom,select AMD pre defined profile. when you start say 3dmark11 the drivers will auto select the profile for it.
Profiles contain automatic settings for the best performance/visuals. They can be adjusted/tweaked, but really, it's meant so that optimizations can be carried from driver version to driver version. This means you can use older stable driver that offers the functionality, but still get the benefit of new optimizations that you'd not normally have access to without installation of a new driver.
That means that you do not have to update your driver every month any more. You can simply just update the App Profile instead.
