I'm running an older Dell XPS 700 with 4gb, 4 hd's, 3 cd/dvdr's, and multiple boot options - Ubuntu, Windows 7 64bit, Windows 8.1 32bit, and Windows Server 2008 R2 64bit.
I also just installed an HD 4350.
I downloaded all the appropriate packages for each OS - and even tried the 14.2 beta release - none work. About 10 seconds into the install I get a "package failure" error.
I've read all the posts and know a ton of people are having these issues (really finicky piece of software for a video card!) and I've tried every fix I could find.
1 Removed all the previous drivers.
b They're hard to remove use this tool or that tool - I just formatted the drive so I'm pretty sure it was gone!
2. Prevent Windows from auto-installed the driver - yup, went into the gpedit and put a stop to that - every time I've tried to do an install there was never a previous driver loaded.
3. Boot into safe mode and install it there - that didn't work either.
4. Remove the MS C++ Redistributable....and then re-install. Did that too, tried 2005-2012 - none of them made any difference.
Now I'm woindering if I should reformat again and install 8.1 64bit - but is that really going to make a difference? LOL
Does anybody have a clue what to do other than buy a different brand whose drivers actually work?
