I have an AMD Radeon HD 8600M series graphics card, but I also have an integrated intel HD Graphics chip. I have turned off the intel to
try and see if my Adobe Premiere will open. (another story there...keeps crashing at startup - I read that if you disable the onboard chip and use the graphics card that it could be a solution).
I used the AMD autodetect utility and it sent me to a download page for driver crimson 16.150.2211.0. The prior driver was 15.200.1040.0. With the old driver installed, if I right clicked on the desktop I never saw a link for a control panel for AMD. Now since I've updated, I see 'AMD Radeon Settings' when I right click on the desktop, but when I choose it I get this message: "No AMD driver is installed or the AMD driver is not functioning properly. Please install the AMD driver appropriate for your AMD hardware". I made sure I also downloaded the chipset driver as well since the updated driver package that the auto detect sent me to did not include those. I also double checked to make sure I chose the Windows 10 64 bit on the initial driver update download.
System is Windows 10 on and Intel all in one computer. Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4700MQ CPU @ 2.40GHz
Installed RAM 12.0 GB
64 bit Operating system, x64 based processor
Integrated graphics chip Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600.
Could the Amd graphics card be faulty?? When I disable the Intel card I still see my desktop etc...so there is something working. I just can't get the control panel for crimson to work.
Thank you in advance for any advice,
