i installed the latest mobility 13.8 beta driver last night, and it seems somethings up. nearing the end of the installation the screen basically goes blank, it flashes for about a second with nothing on it but a black screen, and then turns off for about a second and continuosly does this, i waited a whole hour and nothing improved, i unplugged the laptop and restarted to no avail, it shows the windows loading screen and then the same thing happens, i ended up using system restore to fix it, just wondering if anyone else has the same problem and knows of any solutions, thanks


edit- also catalyst control center is no longer loading, i reverted back to 13.6 beta but still no good

Solution: Use the drivers provided by the laptop manufacturer. Not all laptops are compatible with the generic mobility drivers.
