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.)

A: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.

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.

It's reccomended to unistall the old first.
For W7 you can use the patch,copy the patch files to the folder of the new drivers so it installs normaly on W7.
Then just run the setup.

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...

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. The computer doesn't reboot and there is activity on the hard drive. I thought it was just moving along slowly, but it just sat there. I even tried to let it go over night unstalling the drivers but it still didn't work. Any ideas on how I can remove the drivers from my computer and revert back the the WHQL supported Vista Drivers from Nvidia 162 drivers.

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

I know in the past I have used CCleaner to uninstall drivers and also used the add/remove programs section under the control panel in Windows XP, but for some reason I don't see in Vista where there is a selection from uninstalling programs.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

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.

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.

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).

The AMD/NVIDIA/Intel video drivers can normally be uninstalled from the Windows Control panel, this driver uninstaller program was designed to be used in cases where the standard driver uninstall fails, or whenever you need to thoroughly delete Intel, nVidia or ATI/AMD video card drivers.

The current effect after you use this driver removal will be similar as if its the first time you install a new driver just like a fresh, clean install of Windows. As with any tool of this kind, we recommend creating a new system restore point before using it, so that you can revert your system at any time if you run into problems.
This tool acts similar to what other driver cleaner programs do + the extra mentioned above.
If you have problem installing older driver or newer one, give it a try as there are some reports that it fixes those problems.

It is important to do a system restore point before as with any tool like this one, it is better be on the safe side and have a backup."

source: What is DDU? - Wagnardmobile Forum

A good case in point is a fresh Windows install which now installs an out of date and generalized Nvidia driver. I let all my updates finish, then I run DDU and it drops me to safe mode where it removes all trace of the installed driver, restarts and I am free and clear to cleanly install the newest driver with the options I choose (goodbye 3d stuff I don't use, goodbye Nvidia Experience)

I may screw everything else up, but I never have video driver issues =)

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

A: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.

A: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 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.

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.

Hi all,

I downloaded and installed the new 4.9 version of the Catalyst drivers with the Catalyst Control Center or CCC for short. Thing is that when I install it and to the best of my knowledge I'm installing it correctly this is what I get.

I don't know why it's doing it or how it's doing it. I'm at a complete loss. It almost makes my windows xp home edition machine look like an xp/me hybrid

If anyone has a solution to this problem I'd love to hear it because I can't find out or figure out why it's messin' up. Thanks in advance.

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

A: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

Odd to see this in a generally released driver.
Two suggestions:
1) Uninstall all ATi Drivers and reboot. Try downloading and installing an older, stable version if it's still available
2) Reboot, and keep hitting F8 until you get to the Advanced Options menu. Choose Debugging Mode. Let the BSOD happen and analyze the dump as above. See if it's any different (if so, post it here)

A: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.

A:Blue screen after installing catalyst drivers

When the computer is booting windows, hold down F8 until it displays the menu to choose what you want to load. Boot into Safe Mode, then go into the device manager. Expand your video adapter, and then right click on the device. Go to "Properties", then click on the "Driver" tab. Then, click on the button that says "Roll Back Driver". Restart the computer, and you should be good.

A:Reinstalling Win 7 x64. Best Catalyst Drivers for Single Card Set

rakers8, welcome to the Seven Forums.

The chipset drivers are usually not included in the beta or preview releases from AMD, but are usually included in the full Catalyst suite. Even if they're not they can always be downloaded from AMD as separate downloads.

As far as the video driver goes, don't have a 5850 but do have a 6850, and haven't had any problems with the 12.1 Preview and if anything seem to be a little better than the 11.12 (smoother, image quality, etc). Getting them from XFX is of no benefit as they will have (if they don't just link back to AMD) the exact same driver as what you get directly from AMD. There is next to zero difference between the drivers from the card manufacturers and AMD, about the only thing the driver from the card manufacturer might have different is their name shows up next to AMD's during the install.

There's a huge issue with the Catalyst Legacy drivers AMD released for 2000 to 4000 series cards. After installing them, the Camera app displays the following problem after launch:

"Sorry. The camera app cannot be used with this version of Windows"

Reverting back to stock Windows 8 drivers solve the problem.

Anyone has the same problem?

A:Camera app issues with Catalyst Legacy drivers

yes. the catalyst legacy drivers have a ton of problems with Windows 8.

try to do any of your streaming apps or DRM apps with them... to save you the time, you can't. they won't work.

Hi, I have an AMD Radeon HD 4870 card, prior to updating to 13.1 legacy drivers, 12.6 was working perfectly for me. However, after updating to 13.1 legacy drivers, videos can't play properly, they just show a green screen, and it happens to all sources: Online video players, Windows Media Player, Media Player Classic Home Cinema, VLC player. I wish to ask, anyone has any ideas what options are added to the control center i 13.1 legacy drivers, and how to solve this issue. Or, anyone would be kind to provide me the links to 12.6 legacy drivers. normal drivers will not work for my graphic card, only legacy drivers are working. I can't find any links myself . thanks in advance.

A:Green screen for videos using AMD Catalyst Legacy 13.1 drivers

I had a similar issue with Flash videos (Youtube etc.), streaming or watching locally stored videos. The solution was simple: disable Flash hardware acceleration. After this the videos played OK.

My thread about this issue: Flash videos: audio OK, no video, instead only solid green background (solution in post #5).

Might be it will not help you but it most certainly is worth to try.

Please follow the to provide us with the full crash reports.

In the meantime, some information regarding your bugcheck code:

It's not a true crash, in the sense that the bluescreen was initiated only because the combination of video driver and video hardware was being unresponsive, and not because of any synchronous processing exception.

Since Vista, the "Timeout Detection and Recovery" (TDR) components of the OS video subsystem have been capable of doing some truly impressive things to try to recover from issues which would have caused earlier OSs like XP to crash. As a last resort, the TDR subsystem sends the video driver a "please restart yourself now!" command and waits a few seconds. If there's no response, the OS concludes that the video driver/hardware combo has truly collapsed in a heap, and it fires off that stop 0x116 BSOD.

If playing with video driver versions hasn't helped, make sure the box is not overheating. Try removing a side panel and aiming a big mains fan straight at the motherboard and GPU. Run it like that for a few hours or days - long enough to ascertain whether cooler temperatures make a difference. If so, it might be as simple as dust buildup and subsequently inadequate cooling.

The above quote was taken from, which is linked to in usasma's thread about this error. Closely follow the first three posts of usasma's thread outlining STOP 0x116: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR troubleshooting and proceed through each step. Let us know if you need further help.

A:Catalyst Clean Uninstall Utility nuked Intel USB drivers

My own approach to uninstalling AMD drivers in order to install a newer version is to use Driver Fusion (formerly named Driver Sweeper).

There is a free version, but at its low price I use the "premium" version. It understands drivers.

Never had a problem with it uninstalling anything other than the exact AMD driver package (including Registry entries, etc.) I was trying to remove.
As far as finding drivers for the Intel USB components you saw got unintentionally removed with the AMD clean uninstall you ran, is the problem now that you can't get proper new versions of the deleted drivers reinstalled?

Do you have a "system restore points" you can restore from before you did the AMD uninstall? This should restore the working system at that point.

Do you have any complete "system image" backups you can recover from?

If you're just looking for help finding the Intel USB drivers for the machine, can you post a screenshot of Device Manager -> Properties for the "other devices" needing drivers, Details tab, and post the Hardware ID (second item in the Property dropdown list).

My catalyst control center was bugged so i decided to just do a complete uninstallation, which was successful. When i went to do the fresh install, the install manager would not give me the option of install the catalyst control center even though i uninstalled it. i have been looking through various fourms for solutions, but i only found one that seemed appropriate but it failed. it was the solution of looking in windows\assembly and uninstalling the ATI related products with the public key code of 90ba70f846762.

A:Catalyst control center wont install with the newest drivers

Welcome to the forum Carick
you didn't mention what type of ATI card you have to surch for the prob.
In the public key code usually there must be a 16 alpha numeric code and not 13.
And there must be two public keys related to ATI :ATICCCOM & ATIXCLIB.
Be careful.
Good luck

Hi so my old GT240 card died on me so I bought a new Sapphire HD5770 1GB Vapor-X card. It arrived this morning, I uninstalled the old Nvidia Drivers, put the card in the PCI-E Slot, booted the computer, put the driver CD in, ran the installer and I got a message at the end of the install saying there were problems, I opened up the log file and nothing seemed to be wrong. But the drivers or the Catalyst Control Panel didn't even install! Im stuck on this really rubbish resolution and can't play games. I've tried driver sweeper to get rid of nvidia drivers and then tried reinstalling and that didn't work.

Hardware i'm using:

OS: Vista 32Bit
Motherboard: Asus P5KC
Processor: Q6600 @ 2.40GHz
Memory: 4x 1GB RAM
Sapphire HD5770 1GB Vapor-X GPU

Hope you guys can help

A:New X-Fi Win 7 Beta Drivers

I just installed these drivers. I was previously using the latest Vista drivers. I'm running 64 bit.

These betas seem to have cleared up an issue I was having with COD:WAW. Whenever I used the game mode from the Creative Console launcher, the sound for the game would hang when shutting down the game and the game would hang upon shut down.

Now game mode can be used and WAW shuts down normally. HOWEVER, ALChemy still hangs the game at shut down. I can't use ALChemy with WAW. In game mode without ALChemy, I still get positional 3D sound from my 4.1 speakers.

For music, these drivers sound a bit crisper and cleaner in entertainment mode. All options work in entertainment mode, from CMSS 3D to EAX.

Creative has taken a step in the right direction with these drivers. Glad to see that they are paying attention, expecially to a beta OS.

I ran Windows 7 Beta on my HP Pavilion laptop tx-1000, with it's internal NVIDIA nForce wireless adapter supporting b/g and n. It worked fine, then yesterday I loaded RC1.

Although the wireless connect SEES all the wireless networks, it can't connect to any (of mine, two total).

I've removed all the security from them, and connected to them with a desktop with a PCI wireless adapter, so they're good.

Did the driver set change from Beta?

Is there a comprehensive diagnostic process to determine WHY Windows 7 can't connect?

A:Drivers different from Beta?

There is some difference. I have a USB wireless adapter that was fine in Beta but, like yours, will not make a connection in RC.

Use caution!

I downloaded and installed the 32 bit drivers.

They toasted my sound.

They toasted my firewall.

They caused system wide havoc on permissions for all sorts of dll's and system files.

After several hours of restoration, I was able to get my system working again. Regular Microsoft system restore is a joke. I used a commercial third party program to affect my restoring my pc.

I installed this driver last night and what a difference. When I installed any previous Nvidia driver, and enabled SLI the computer would freeze for a bit and would require a reboot.

Hello sevenforums,

I've played the BF3 beta two times now with NVIDIA's BF3 optimized beta drivers, and I've had two BSOD's. Both occurred after being on the server for about 15-20 minutes. I suspect the beta drivers are causing it but the crashing still suggests they don't mesh well with my system, and I'd like to know why.

Quite a few issues here

The pre 2009 version of this driver is a known BSOD cause.

Please visit this link: ASUS teK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download P7P55D LE
ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download P7P55D LE

Scroll down to the Utilities category, then scroll down to the "ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista/Windows 7 32&64-bit" (it's about the 12th item down).
Download and install it.
Go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers to check and make sure that the ASACPI.SYS file is date stamped from 2009 or 2010 (NOT 2005).


This is another large cause used by daemon tools and alcohol120

Remove any CD visualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%.
They use a driver, found in your dmp, sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs.

How To Find Drivers:

- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.

There are new Nvidia Beta drivers for Windows 7 both 32 and 64 bit.
181.71 released 3/2/2009

NVIDIA Graphics Supercharge Microsoft Windows 7

A:New Nvidia Beta drivers, 181.71 for Windows 7

Will give these a try - thanks.

Apparently these supercharge the Windows 7 experience. Is this just marketing guff? I was under the impression that the Windows 7 experience was pretty much identical to the Vista experience in terms of graphics APIs.

edit: just read that these drivers support WDDM 1.1 on 8. 9. and above hardware so performance is enhanced over Vista. We'll see

Windows Beta Multi-Touch Is Much Improved I documented my experience with the Windows pre-beta N-Trig s Win multi-touch driver and the Dell Latitude XT Tablet PC back in November Most folks will remember that experience as being pretty lousy Well there is finally Ntrig released Beta Drivers some good news to report I just finished installing Windows Beta and the latest N-Trig multi-touch drivers for Windows on the XT and I m pleased to report that the experience is much improved Picture zooming rotations zooming in web page etc Ntrig Beta Drivers released are all much smoother and I what I Ntrig Beta Drivers released expected when I first tested it Zooming could be still be improved but it is much better than the pre-beta In addition there is no vectoring when switching from pen to touch inking etc See update below This feels like a solid multi-touch experience Microsoft and N-Trig should be commended There are no N-Trig dialog feedback dialogs and no N-Trig control panel options other than an About panel Windows has clearly taken over the multi-touch experience from beginning to end via Windows Beta Multi-Touch Is Much Improved GottaBeMobile com
