You need to get drivers from the Samsung website, not from AMD.

Sounds like you did more than 'accidentally uninstalled' your drivers. Try a clean install of the Samsung drivers (How-To found in the FAQ section) ....or try the Leshcat drivers.

thank you for your responses . helps

leshcat drivers , i am less likely towards them , as they might create other problems or issues as they are third party stuff

Need a bit more specifics on the issue.  You have Windows 8.1 installed?  What specific driver from AMD are you trying? or.. what specific driver from Samsung?

Ideally, you want to use Samsung's driver. If they only provide a driver under Windows 7, then you're kinda stuck. Stick with Windows 7.  The sticky on uninstall/install steps are about as thorough as we can do.  If install issues persists, sometimes a reinstall of C++, .NET or even the OS is required to correct issue preventing a clean install.

Catalyst 13.10 Beta supports Windows 8.1. Catalyst 13.8 Beta and 13.4 WHQL did not.

i really appreciate your help !

i am using windows 8  only .

samsung drivers i am using (dowloaded from sw update ) according to sw update , are latest

the website does not provide windows 7 but sw update does ,
and thier version is 12.102.0.0  (370 MB) .. i think it relates to 12,8 beta 2 as it was avalable for update just a few days after 13.8 beta 2 was released.

i had successfully installed the amd drivers from sw update , but as i said
i dnt have the catalyst control center is nowhere
