My issue: I need to install my new graphics card. I tried using the CD-ROM that came with it but it did not work, so I resorted to trying to install it via online. But when I install the ATI Catalyst Install Manager from the site, it installs within one minute but it doesn't ACTUALLY install. It says the installation was interrupted even though it says it was installed.
This is what I installed:
I installed both the 299 MB and 12.3 MB, not the Hotfix.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I'd like you to try a system clean up and a fresh installation of our latest Crimson 16.7.2 drivers, to see if it resolves the issue.
1. Run the Windows self check tool to check scan and automatically repair any corrupt files found in Windows. There is a guide on how to do it here. What you need to do is run an elevated command prompt (elevated means run it as administrator) and type SFC /SCANNOW. This will generate a statement indicating if errors were found the Operating system and if they were fixable.
3. Update Windows. Install all available critical, recommended and optional updates. Often Netframework and Visual C are included in the recommended or optional updates Windows provides. Windows should always be fully up to date before installing our drivers!
4. Use DDU to sweep the system of AMD drivers in safe mode.
5. Install the latest Crimson 16.7.2 drivers once the above is completed and check to see if the issue is resolved.
Thank you, I'll try this next week. Let you know how it goes.
