I have an issue that would require me getting my notebook able to compile programs asap, but roughly a week of trying has brought no results. A link to the issue:


Since then I have done everything I could to remove ALL AMD/ATi entries from the registries (intelligently, some are meaningful logs), yet the kernel compiling crash remains. On windows this is what my program output:

Naturally this is after I try to compile the kernels. I have downloaded the catalyst mobility utility to install the latest, non-beta stable driver, and it did download




but the problem remains. Same goes for





which I obtained from either when they were new, or recently from the "previous catalyst releases" or similarly named link on . These things used to work, and now they don't, all since I installed Catalyst 12.11 beta4 and tried fixing the issue with 12.11 beta7.


Someone please tell me how to go about solving the issue, as it is becoming PRESSING now. Is it really a full reinstall of Windows 8 that can solve the issue?!
