Is there a guide on how to update the drivers in a system with HD4800 and HD6450 installed under windows7 64-bit?
It seems that the drivers for either are different now. Windows installation set 8.850.0.0 (19.04.2011), and I am unable to install any newer catalyst packages. It is either blue screen in the middle of the installation progress or a seemingly successful installation - after rebooting there is no driver that windows is willing to use though so 800x600 with single monitor it is.

I can't figure out a way to have both (or even either) work correctly with amd drivers.

Intel p5b-e board, 2 samsung 204b monitors + 720p tv.

Do you have a laptop? If so, here is info from HP....should be similar to other setups.

Not a laptop.
The HP pages show using a chip from same generation (6xxx series), I believe that 4 vs 6 require different drivers now.
The issue is that I can't install catalyst suite or drivers, not using catalyst suite.

Try the following:

  • Download CCC again (to rule out corruption in the download that you currently have)
  • Download/install Driver Fusion
  • Uninstall CCC completely
  • Reboot into safe mode
  • Right-click Driver Fusion choose "Run as Administrator"
  • Select AMD Graphics
  • Select Analyze
  • Select Clean
  • Reboot when prompted (into your regular OS)
  • Install CCC
  • Reboot 2-3 times before opening CCC up to allow it to complete configuring itself in the background.
  • Re-test

In the step of 'install CCC' I get
InstallManagerApp
Application Install: install source package not found
Did a fresh download of amddriverdownloader.
Receive an error:
Install manager version 08.00.0891 and shows 'currently installing: HDMI/DP Audio Driver' at the time.

Downloaded 12-10_vista_win7_win8_64_dd_ccc_whql_net4. Success in the end. Do 2 restarts and try to run CCC, result:
No AMD graphics driver is installed, or the AMD driver is not functioning properly.

Go to system restore (as am unable to get windows 7 default driver installed otherwise) and it says the following will be deleted:
amd (media) 05/11/2012 7.12.0.7708
amd, inc. (display) 09/27/2012 9.002.0.0000
amd catalyst install manager 8.0.891.0
