    amd installer fail

    sec2709

      Hi, I've been trying to use the Roxio vhs to dvd software, but when I plug the adapter in, I get the blue screen of death and windows shuts down.

       

      With a little research, I think it may be the AMD is not current.  So I downloaded the latest driver and software, but when I tried to install, it stops and says installer failed.

       

      Does anyone know what the problem may be?

       

      Oh, I have windows 7 pro running on a toshiba satellite P755 laptop

          You neglected to mention your graphics...kinda important don't you think So I will make a wild guess and say you have a AMD graphics HD5xxx series or older and you have Intel switchable graphics.

           

          Your laptop is equipped with switchable graphics. In order to update the AMD driver, the Intel graphics should be the current version. Go to this Intel link, and manually ( do not use the Intel Driver Update Utility) find the latest graphics driver for your laptop, as pictured. Download and save it to your desktop. If you don't know which version of Intel graphics you have, look in device manager.

                  How do I uninstall the intel driver? There is nothing in uninstall a program or installed updates that is for the video drive, which is hd4600. What there is is intel management engine, USB 3.0 and network connections. Also should I uninstall raptr ?

                  intel 4600
