Hello,

Catalyst 13.12 driver makes my laptop's screen dark, I can't see nothing, the brightness on 100%!
If I use the lamp, I see something very very vagua (sickly). So I can't use my laptop... The latest driver does this problem.
In the settings I tried modified to make it more brighter (lighter). The problem was the driver.

I uninstalled the Catalyst 13.12, and reinstall the Catalyst 13.9 and with this my laptop screen is fine! It works well. This driver is okay.

My laptop:

  • ASUS X52JR
  • ATI Mobility Radeion HD 5470 1Gb
  • Core i3 330-M cpu
  • 3Gb Ram
  • Windows 7 64bit (Home premium and Professional the same problem)

Yes...there is a big thread about it. It seems to affect Asus laptops.

Must be hardware specific because on this HP laptop, the brightness was too high with 13.12. 13.9 doesn't work at all. So, I went back to 13.4.
