Graphics Card
ATI Mobility Radeon HD4850

AMD Catalyst Driver Version, and Driver History
Driver version: 8.970.100.1100, Catalyst Version: 13.9

Operating System
Windows 7 Pro 64bit SP1

Issue Details
Since updating to the latest compatible Catalyst Software Suite for my card released on 10/15/2013 I have been having issues of the graphics driver constantly resetting when running Final Fantasy XIV: ARR causing the game to freeze and the screen going black before reappearing.

Motherboard or System Make & Model
MSI MS-1722

Applications and Games

Final Fantasy XIV: ARR

CPU Details
Intel Mobile Core 2 Quad Q9000

Motherboard BIOS Version
AMI A1722IDI V1.0P

System Memory Type & Amount

Additional Details
The game was running without problems before this update (previous update was made in July 2103). I have tried the lowest graphical settings as well as high without resolution. I have also tried unistalling the drivers and game and reinstalling, including only reinstalling just the graphics driver without success to the problem. No rollback of graphics driver is available via device manager.

Can anyone help me with this issue or point me to where I can download the previous COMPATIBLE version for my card?

Time to say,"if it ain't broke don't fix it".

Anyhow, FIRST.. try system restore.

If that doesn't work just reload the old drivers. You MAY have to clean these new ones out using driver sweeper or ~.


For mobility drivers try your manufacturer's site. Try google too.
