AMD Radeon 6650M problems Win7

Hello everyone!


This is my first Forum post because so far i could solve all problems by answers I found on other posts.. so don't be too harsh if there is a solution for my issue because i didn't find it




Okay... my problem is, that for some time already my build in AMD card has stopped working.

Now after some playing around I see the card in the device manager and in speccy, but I still can't use it.

Furthermore i have been to this stage already and was even able to use the card, but as soon as i started e.g. Skyrim using the AMD card the system shut down after a few seconds.

So I tried deinstalling the driver and starting again, now with (i think) the same driver installed again, I can't even select the AMD card for Skyrim anymore.


Also i get a system freeze (like 1 minute) every time after booting, without error message or similar.



I tried several (like 10) driver installations, different settings, etc.

Crawled through really a lot of posts i found on google and tried many different solutions but nothing seems to work for me.


Current installed driver (from manufacturer page) is: amd-catalyst-15.7.1-with-dotnet45-win7-64bit

It's a Lenovo G770 Laptop and i didn't use it too frequently but i remember some 2 years ago it was set up with win7 as well and was working fine.

Here is a snip from my Speccy results to give a general overview of my system.



So.. i hope someone can help me with this problem to get it running again or at least to get to know if its broken or whatever is wrong
I still hope i can fix it, even tho i try it since about half a year from time to time.



If there is any information missing please tell me and i will include it as soon as possible.




Best regards
