Sapphire 4850 (No OC)

CCC 13.1 (issues), believe I was using 12.10 before

Windows 7 Ultimate

 

After reinstalling Windows and installing the drivers, I was unable to open Overdrive.

I tried uninstalling the drivers in the add/remove programs through windows and then using driver sweeper in safe mode.

After doing this I boot normally and reinstall drivers. However this produced the same issue after doing it twice.

So I found on another forum that it may be a problem with AMD Fuel, so I tried launching that and nothing changed.

I tried doing the driver sweeper again and this time installing 12.10 (which I'm pretty sure are the drivers I had before)

and nothing would happen. There was no prompt for a restart and if I restart my computer beeps four times (long, short, short, short)

and shuts down after about 20 seconds. Then I start up again and it boots normally but with no drivers. Aagain this is only with 12.10.

I feel defeated as I been at this for a while and decided to ask for my own help. Thanks for your time.

 

MOBO: ASUS Sabertooth x58

 

PSU: Antec 750w

 

20" KDS monitor received from family member.

 

Memory type: forgot, 8GB

 

Fresh install with only WoW, Borderlands 2, and League of Legends installed. Plus Chrome and Logitech Gaming Software.

 

This is really frustrating, I was considering buying a 7870 here either today or tomorrow but now that this issue has come up on a fresh install... I just don't know.

Will CCC work right away then I assume? No reinstall necessary?

No. The netframeworks must be installed BEFORE you try and install the drivers...not After. Look

That's supposed to be a RAM issue. Try fixing that before doing anything else. Clean and reseat the modules, run memtest86 etc. And ignore the babble about .NET from above, it has nothing to do with your problem.

Not sure if that is correct, as those beeps only happen after installing these AMD drivers and then restarting the first time.

So my problem is solved and here is how.

 

As stated above by @stumped the issue was that my .NET framework was not up to date or there was a problem with installing 4.0 (I checked my version and it said I had 4.0 but had not installed, don't know why but don't care at the moment).

 

1. Update .NET Framework from here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30653

2. Install .NET update

3. Download uninstall software from http://sites.amd.com/us/game/downloads/Pages/catalyst-uninstall-utility.aspx

4. Download Driver Sweeper (I used 2.1.0 but the latest version is probably prefered) from Guru3D.com

5. Run Driver Uninstaller

4. Restart into safe mode 

5. Run Driver Sweeper on all ATI/AMD Display and Nvidia Displays (clean)

6. Reboot normally into Windows 7

7. Install new AMD drivers

8. Reboot normally

 

Only concern I have is that after everytime I reboot I get those beeps mentioned above. This time the computer did not shut off but rather Windows started (from what I can tell) normally except I had no video. Just did Start>"right arrow">enter then booted my computer up again and it worked. But now I am able to get into Overdrive and turn my fan speeds up again.

 

Thank you very much Stumped.

Glad you got it sorted and that you posted the steps to resolve the issue This will help others with similar issues. Also glad that you could understand my babble.

Edit: I recommend Driver Sweeper version 3.2.0
