I already uninstalled my driver, wanted to update because I was experiencing issues with certain functionalities with the new Adobe Creative Cloud Apps such as Photoshop CC. Certain tools and or functions were unavailable and I'd like to see if this will resolve the issue.
Which one would be a better choice?
Windows 7 64 bit Service Pack 1
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2630QM CPU @ 2.00GHz 2.00 GHz
6 GB RAM
602 GB of free space
Radeon (TM) HD 6490M
Driver Update Options:
AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.2.1 Beta Driver
AMD Catalyst™ Software Suite, AMD Catalyst™ 15.7.1 driver (recommended)
This: AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.2.1 Beta Driver caused HDMI sound playback problems on one of my my pre-GCN GPUs.
So I installed this first: AMD Catalyst™ Software Suite, AMD Catalyst™ 15.7.1 driver (recommended)
However I like the new Crimson Interface so I then did an incremental install of AMD Settings.
It works fine.
I uninstalled my original to try installing the update. I tried both of them and actually ran into problems with both of them. During the install they both changed my screen resolution to where it looked like my desktop was in safe mode and my original resolution options were not available anymore. Then I started getting an error message that said the proper driver was not installed or something like that so I just uninstalled them but now I'm left trying to figure out how to get my original back...
