    Can't install drivers for R7 M445. Catalyst or clean update doesn't do anything.



      I recently bought Dell Inspiron 5567 (i5 and R7 M445) and for 2 weeks already can't force my R7 M445 card working.

      First of all, I installed 4xx driver from here: Download Drivers . Rebooted, nothing happened.

      Then uninstalled, Installed Crimson Relive, let him do his work, rebooted, nothing happened.

      Again uninstalled, tried clean install Clean Install AMD Graphics Drivers , step by step, disabled Windows Updates, cleaned all stuff, safe mode, etc, etc. Nothing. Happened.


      How can I see that nothing is happened?

      When I'm disabling my integrated HD Graphics 620, I'm having 1 Fps on mainscreen in Dota 2, my SuperPosition Benchmark doesn't load, keep saying to me you have no videocard and GPU-Z showing me weird graph when my Dedicated card working at 100% for 2 seconds, then at 0% for 2 seconds with fans for 100%, then switches back and again and again.


      By the way, when I'm auto-installing drivers from Relive, my card name changes to M440 and GPU-Z shows nothing.



      Hoping for help here.

      [sry for my englando]

            Thank you, @kingfish, but although my current series number showing 440, its not a problem, I can install other version so it would show m445, but the idea is that both versions doesn't work.

            And yes, absolutely I tried first instruction that you linked and even clean method, I wouldn't post anything if your methods would solve problem for me.

              Seems like there would be no help and no hope, but still trying again with full information now.


              I can't force my Radeon R7 M445 to work, no matter what. Clean method install doesn't help, which I followed step by step. If there's probabilty of remote shenanigans, go on.

                  Have no idea how to check connections, but I think it's pointless for notebooks — 1920x1080 @60Hz

              Describe your issue:

              • Details about applications/games affected (including version number)

              Dota 2 mainscreen – 3 fps, most other games didn't starting, SuperPosition Benchmark – 1 Fps

              • Graphical settings used in the application/game (resolution and 3D settings)

              Lowest Possible settings with 1920x1080


              If i something missed, hope attached CPU-Z report would have it, otherwise, I'll provide if asked.

                  You say you disabled the Intel graphics...where did you do that? You cannot do that from Device Manager...that has to be done in the bios. > HP Notebook PCs - Switchable Graphics on Notebooks Configured with Intel and ATI GPUs | HP® Customer Support

                  Do you have any yellow marks in the Device Manager?

                  Do you have the computer power plan set to "High Performance"? (the default is 'balanced')


                    • Re: Can't install drivers for R7 M445. Catalyst or clean update doesn't do anything.

                      — Power plan.

                      High perfomance, absolutely.



                      — Disabling HD 620.

                      Yes, in device manager. If I should try to disable it in BIOS, I'll do it. (respectively, update drivers, turn off device (highlighted), delete device)


                      —Yellow marks.

                      No there's none (because I can't do anything with disabled integrated graphics).


                      — Switchable Graphics.

                      Now that's tricky one. I feel like I'm missing some settings here (probably cause of too old screenshots),


                      First of all, no — there's no Dota in the list. There was no Dota in the list, till I didn't open setting, while Dota launched. Should I search or add it? Should I add every game here? Should I set high perfomance for everygame? Should I open every game with AMD Launched?




                      Second, how this settings works with in-game settings? Shouldn't I feel scared about Crimson overwriting my games settings?




                      And third.

                      How can I make sure dedicated card is working aside of disabling integrated? Because even now, when I'm disabling Integrated I have 3-4 fps on mainscreen (when integrated is on its about 20-35 fps as on screenshot above). I believe that's not the perfomance we could expect from dedicated card.



                      For some additional info, copying settings.
