Hey guys.

 

I was playing a game a few days ago when my screen went black. No keyboard commands worked so I had to hard restart using the power key. Hower whenever I tried to restart the system the computer gets stuck on the windows loading screen.

I had to clean install windows, however now whenever I try to install any AMD driver my computer will get stuck on the windows screen.

I can get my AMD card to work by uninstalling both intel and amd drivers, rebooting into safe mode, installing intel driver, reboot into normal mode, load amd driver, reboot into safe mode, unistall intell driver, reboot nto safe mode and reinstall intel driver, then finally reboot with the power cord out.

 

This only fixes the issue till the system is rebooted again hower which is very inconveniant.

I was using the latest drivers for each card and had been using those drivers for a fairly long time. They were not recent updates.

 

My System specs are:

 

OS: Windows 7 64bit sp1

Motherboard: Clevo P170EM

CPU: Intel Core i7 3720QM @ 2.60GHz

GPU: Intel HD Graphics 4000
          ATI AMD Radeon HD 7970M

RAM: 16.0GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 798MHz

Storage: 220GB SSD

Edit: the driver versions I was using

AMD 14.2 beta1.3

windows hd 3314

 

Can any of you help with this problem?

 

Thanks in advance

Thanks for the quick reply.

However I tried my manufacturer if that is the sticky you are referring to? My laptop is supposedly compatible with the latest beta driver and I tried the manufacturer standard driver.

 

The beta causes the windows log in problem and the factory default installs but then doesn't seem to recognise my card. When I click CCC to open it tells me that it cannot be started as there are no settings configurable.

 No, I was reffering to "SWITCHABLE GRAPHICS". Try this: Open your bios and disable the on-board graphics (Intel) so you are using the discreet graphics only. Using your computer "uninstall a program" find AMD Install Manager and express uninstall all AMD software including the installer. Reboot. Install these drivers. Reboot. Then go back into bios and enable the Intel.

If that doesn't work, use the Leshcat modded drivers.
