Graphics Card
-ATI Radeon 2100

AMD Catalyst Driver Version, and Driver History
-12.6 released 7-24-2012

Operating System
-Fresh install on formatted HDD of Windows 7 64 bit all current available updates

Issue Details
-Only my processor shows up in AMD VISION and I have no option to adjust the display

-I use my HTPC connected to a projector and have a thick black border around the image instead of filling the screen. in the past (in Vista) I had to use Catalyst Control Center to get the image to fill the screen.

-I also installed the Ceton Infinitv 4 cable card tuner and in the "Digital Cable Ready" test, my system fails due to not have hardware acceleration enabled. I previously used this system with a qam tuner a few years ago.

Motherboard or System Make & Model
GA-MA74GM-S2 with original BIOS - needs to be updated I'm sure

Power Supply

-Antec Earthwatts 500 watt PSU

Display Device(s) and Connection(s) Used
- Epson 6100
-DVI to HDMI to the receiver and HDMI from the receiver to the projector

Applications and Games

- Windows home screen and Windows Media Center

CPU Details
- AMD 4850e
- no overclocking

Motherboard BIOS Version
-Not sure. I can look when I get home.

System Memory Type & Amount
-2 gigs of something. Can't remember what brand. Not the issue.

Additional Hardware
-Sata II 80 GB boot, IDE 400 GB data, LG DVD burner, Ceton InfiniTV 4

Additional Details
-I can't access the Catalyst Control Center though I think the AMD Vision has replaced this. In AMD Vision, I can access the CPU but there is no display adapter (2100) to select.

You could try an older driver you used before. Having latest drivers can be important for gaming PCs, but if you have a HTPC, it's only necessary in case you encounter some nasty bug which is known and fixed in a later version.

Especially with a card as old as that, do a system restore.
