I have a Windows 7 laptop with and HD6290 (C60) GPU. I currently have driver version 8.861.0.0 (5/24/2011). I'm getting some BSOD's for the graphics driver, so I thought I'd try updating.
I want to try to install the driver alone without any of the Catalyst or Crimson control center stuff. I try to have minimal background processes running.
I noticed that the current drivers include/need .net. Is that only required if the control center is installed?
Also which driver version would you recommend?
The HD6xxx series has reached peak optimisation and been moved to legacy status, there will not be any further driver updates for your product. More information available here.
The latest Crimson driver for your system is 16.2.1 and is available here.
The last Catalyst driver for your system is 15.11.1 Beta and is available here.
I would recommend using DDU to sweep your system of AMD drivers, and then trying the drivers above to see if they resolve your issue.
