Hello, I have a HP DV6-3090BR notebook that has two graphics cards, a Radeon 4200 series and a Radeon 5650 dedicated.

    I'm using the version 12.4 of the catalyst but I want to upgrade to version 12.6, but I'm having problems after installing 12.6. After installation the AMD PowerXpress settings disappear and when I try to open the graphics options an error occurs saying that the driver is not installed.

    I already tried reinstalling the driver several times, but the error keeps happening, and also after the upgrade all the games stop working.

    I believe that such problems occurs because the 12.6 do not support the 4xxx series, only the series 5xxx.

    So I was wondering if I'll stick to the 12.4 even when I have hardware capable of running 12.6 or is there something I can do to update my drivers?

  My Notebook Specs:

AMD Phenom II X4 P920 (1.6GHZ)

Mobility Radeon 5650 1GB and Mobility Radeon 4200 series.


Windows 7 64bit
