I have a Dell Studio 1558 with the ATI 5450 Graphics card. Until I upgraded to Windows 8 I have no issues with the CCC software. Upon upgrading to Windows 8 (Pro 64) I can update the software but CCC does not appear to install and the graphics driver version never increases. I have tried the uninstall utility, fresh install of windows..etc and the problem persists. When running the installer i never actually see it trying to install the CCC software or driver. This worked fine in Windows 7.

...and you asked Dell about updating that laptop? ..and checked the bios? ..and checked Dells user forum for similar problems? Changing the OS in a laptop (and there is a LAPTOP forum here with similar posts..where this should be posted) at best is iffy. Some laptops cannot be changed to the Windows ate OS...did you check first? get everything you need at Dell...generic drivers are all AMD offers..and they don't work in every laptop.
