Hi everybody, glad to join the forum.

My Grphic card is a MSI Twin Frzr 6950. Previous version of the Catalist was 13,9

I checked for an update and found the 14.4 and 14.6 versions.

The problem is that after instalation the Catalyst Control Center do not show the controls menu on the left pannel but only the power options.

It has not the Desktop Management, Common Display Tasks, My Digital Flat Pannels etc missing.

I uninstalled the 14.4 and installed the 14.6 and have the same error.

Any idea?

Many thanks,

Yes...previous drivers must be uninstalled before installing the 14.4 or 14.6. Do a clean install of the 14.4.

If you have issues after installing AMD driver suites, this is one method you can try.

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

You should make a system restore point before attempting, just in case

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)

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.

Hello and thank you so much for your reply.

In fact I previously did all the steps you mentioned 2 or 3 times and always the same. The pannel is almost empty, just the power options button

I'm trying to attach now a screen capture and the site is not accepting the file, .jpg, .png, .bmp

Is a small size one. Any restrictions here?

Best regards,
