Hello,

I'm having a problem with my graphic card. I reinstalled Windows on my friend's computer and after trying to install the drivers for the graphic card (the Catalyst Software Suite on this link http://support.amd.com/fr-fr/download/desktop?os=Windows+7+-+64), computer reboots and nothing is displayed but a black screen (I hear Windows's sound when launching the desktop, so the computer is well started, just no display). What do I miss here ? Notice that I tried doing all Windows updates before installing the graphic drivers. I've been googling for a solution for two days, still can't find how to fix this. 


Thanks for everyone who'll help me.

I have the same problem. I can avoid the problem by installing an older driver from dezember. I can use it without blackscreen at booting but the old driver has no mantle support.

Dont ask me which driver i use. It wont work on all pcs. Just try the older ones for yourself.

I have the same issue. I am installing on an ASUS X52J Laptop with the HD 6370M 512MB card.

 

When it updates to the decemeber 2013 driver the LCD on the laptop goes blank, but if I hook up an LCD to the HDMI adapter it is working fine.

I played around with all of the res settings and never can get the LCD screen to come back on. I believe the adapter is not comunicating with the LCD backlight properly as I can see something barely going on the laptop screen as if it is working but is not lighted.

 

As the driver that comes pre-installed has some performance issues (driver dated 11/2010), I found a driver on the ASUS website from 3/2011 that works better.

 

The 12/2013 driver works really great performance wise besides the issue with the laptop LCD, so I hope they update this soon.

 

Please submit a bug with the online submission and detail your specs so they can update this issue faster.
