    15.7.1 driver wont install win 7 64 ATI 7800

      I have been trying to install the new driver.  My old one was having issues sending sound out the HDMI after I changed out to a new monitor. Uninstalled everything, removed everything from msconfig rebooted several times and every time I install I get an error; I check the report and it is telling me that the display driver failed to install.  I click FAILED in the report it mentions something about parameters. Can anyone help me?

          Hi Guys,

           

          I had the same problem with my HD 7970 (received SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED by atikmpag.sys) and now found a solution:

          1. Uninstall Lucid Virty MVP (if installed). This is usally active, if you upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1.

          2. Install the AMD 15.6 Beta Driver for WIndows 8.1 from June22 "amd-catalyst-15.6-beta-software-suite-win8.1-64bit-june22".

          Now your graphics adapter will be detected correctly and everything works fine.

           

          The latest driver 15.7.1 is not working with my card and even after the solution, cannot be installed as Windows 10 tells me, that it is not suitable for this platform.
