Hello, i'm currently using a Dell Inspiron 15R 3537: core i5 4200U 1.6 GHz-2.3 GHz, 4 Gb RAM, running hybrid Intel HD Graphics 4400 (driver version 10.18.10.3621) + Radeon HD 8670M (driver version 18.104.22.168, as downloaded from Dell's drivers website). My OS is Windows 8.1 x64
I attempted to install Catalyst 14.4 driver suite onto my laptop, as you can see, and i have followed the uninstallation protocol that is recommended on this forum (express uninstallation of Catalyst 13.15, reboot, install Catalyst 14.4, reboot). Upon the first reboot immediately following the installation, everything was normal, gaming performance increased noticeably as promised by AMD.
However, when i try to put my laptop either to sleep or into hibernation, the display turns off, but the computer refuses to enter sleep or hibernation; the only thing to do then was to force choke the laptop by holding down the power button. Furthermore, at re-booting, the display goes dark (it is on, but it's dark) at the logon screen of Windows, and there was nothing i could do but to reboot again into Safe Mode. I suppose these 2 problems are closely related to the installation of Catalyst 14.4 suite since after i restore my laptop to before i installed it (revert to 13.15), everything was normal again.
Could someone help me out here? Did i do something wrong, or is my laptop incapable of running 14.4 driver? I did try the same thing with Catalyst 14.6 (the latest beta driver), and the result was the same.
