I am in need of urgent help. I recently purchased a new computer with AMD Radeon HD 8760, OS windows 8.
This morning I was browsing the AMD website and dl the amddriverdownloader which automatically detects the latest drivers. I did this even though Windows said that the driver (which came pre installed) was already up to date. Don't ask me why.
Long story short, the amddriverdownloader was not detecting my Radeon HD 8760 but instead referred to it as a Radeon HD 7XXX and recommended the 13-4_win7_win8_64_dd_ccc_whql driver.
I dl this and installed it. and immediately the screen size adjusted (became smaller than before) and on my systems section it started to show my videocard as Radeon HD 7700 instead of Radeon HD 8760. I launched a random games benchmarker to see if my score had improved and it didn't really improve at all. I quit the benchmarker and used the "Roll back" driver functionality.
My screen was readjusted to fit my monitor and on the device manager page it showed that the driver went back to the pre installed driver which is driver version 126.96.36.199 with driver date 9/13/2012 and my videocard was now back to "AMD HD Radeon 8760".
Even though the screen adjusted, my problems have just started.
I can't seem to start/ launch a single game. I would double click on the game icons and it would stay in "launching" like forever. Every game I click on, would stay in "launch mode". Even the random game benchmarker that I mentioned previously would no longer launch.
I tried everything. System restore didn't work at all. I tried going back to an earlier restore point but the games wont launch. I need help.
When I used the "roll back" driver functionality, I noticed that the folders of the drivers I installed are still on my computer. Is this the cause of the problem?
