I have a custom built PC with a Radeon HD 7970 in it, the PC is about 2 years old now and it's great for gaming, rendering, mining, etc. etc.

Today I checked out my drivers and under Display Adapters I had an AMD Radeon R9 200 series driver installed.

That was the first time I ever experienced that issue, before I always had an Radeon 7900 series driver, it's a minor problem but it bugs me a lot.


Things I've tried:

- restart PC

- re-install AMD Catalyst

- updated driver in Device Manager


None have worked, or have brought me back to the beginning.
