HP Pavilion m9340f
Mobo: Asus IPBL-LB
Bios Ver: 5.43
Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6700 (2.66Ghz)
Memory: 8GB DDR2 (800Mhz)
Video: AMD Radeon HD7670
PSU: 600W Corsair
OS: Windows 7 Professional (64-bit)

The problem I'm having is the fact that the Catalyst install software is not able to install the packages and the video driver (the HDMI audio driver installs fine). I have already made sure that I have .Net Framework 4.5 and the latest C++ distribution installed. The "Action Center" is able to install the driver without any problems (which plays Bioshock fine), though I have no Catalyst Control Center. I've tried uninstalling the drivers themselves (since I don't have the catalyst software) using both the Catalyst setup application and the device manager and then reinstalling using the setup but to no avail I cannot get the control center to install.

Software Version:
Display Driver ver. 13.251
OpenCL(tm) Driver ver. 10.0.1348.5
Catalyst Control Center ver. 2013.1206.1602.28764

To perform a 'clean install' of AMD graphics drivers:

1. IMPORTANT: All Windows Updates should be current, including the 'optional/suggested' updates
2. IMPORTANT: Disable all anti-virus/ad blockers/anti-malware/ anti-anything before trying to install
3. IMPORTANT: Netframework is required and must be the latest version. (from Windows Update)

Create a system restore point before, just in caes.

Download the drivers for your computer to the desktop. Follow steps 1-5 ( ).
 Do not use 'auto-detect and install.

Delete existing drivers from your computer:

In computer control panel select 'uninstall a program'
For computers with Intel processors:
Select AMD install manager and choose 'express uninstall all AMD software'
Including the install manager.

For computers with AMD processors:
Select AMD install manager and 'custom uninstall' the graphics drivers and CCC only.

Reboot into 'safe mode'
In safe mode run Driver Fusion (free version).
Select AMD graphics, analyse and delete all it finds.


Install the new driver suite.

Tried all your suggestions and still doesn't want to work (same log info). Now Action Center won't install the drivers, it just installs a generic VGA adapter driver (I'm just using it as a fall back, it's not on while installing from Catalyst setup). 

EDIT: Got Action Center to work again, but still no legway with the Catalyst install.

Try to start install quickly when rebooting before Windows detects that there are no drivers installed...

I decided to wait till 14.4 released to try again. I did everything on the list; turned off auto detect & install, used Driver Fusion, uninstalled & reinstalled the latest .NET Framework, & turned off all my protective software during install; but it still gives me failures. Now it's not even installing the audio driver (thank god for the restore point). Thinking it was a problem with my mobo chipset I checked to make sure it was compatible. According to the Asus IBIPL-LB mobo is compatible. 

So thinking that the windows OS was corrupted I tried to install the Linux driver in Mint 16 Petra. Well apparently the .run file gives me an "Unsupported device" message. And yes, I uninstalled xserve and the other amd drivers that mint provides before installing.

I just can't believe that this GPU is screwed up since it plays Bioshock (High settings), Mass Effect (Ultra High settings), and GTA IV (Medium settings) perfectly using the windows supplied driver (8.960.11.2000)
