The uninstall, clean method with driver sweeper is the method i already use, along with doing a complete clean install of Win7 Pro 64bit to ensure no video drivers were ever present....The AMD drivers in Windows Update were never installed either.
Also, have a clean/bare install of Win8 64bit to test with and get the same results.
I never could get the 12.11 betas to run, when i start a game i get kicked back to the desktop, this is is on a clean fresh install of Win7 or Win8.
In case you're wondering, i downloaded the Win7 Pro 64bit SP1 iso from Microsoft, installed that and when it hit the desktop, i installed NOTHING, no updates, NOTHING, then made an image of if with Acronis True image, so i'd have a bare, clean install for testing.....and all hardware is at stock settings while doing this/testing of course.
So it takes about 4min to restore that bare/clean install, so i'm up for trying any updates or any suggestions, since i'm only 4min away from a clean install with absolutely no 3rd party programs ever installed .....I already tried the .Net 4.5 install this way and it didnt fix the issue either.....and i really thought that would work too...... i'm not sure what more I can do when trying a clean/bare install gives the same results....a bios setting maybe.
Never tried the TDR though, so i'll try it and report back.
Just so you dont think we're insane, here are a few links...there are many many more if you google it.
EDIT: TDR regedit didnt work, and ive already tried disabling desktop composition, with my clean install b4 and that doesnt solve it.....trying the newest 12.11 beta 6's now.....gonna restore my clean image and install them as clean as possible and see what happens.
EDIT 2: No go, Cat 12.11 beta 6 is the same as all the earlier CAT 12.11 betas for me, any game kicks me back to the desktop with the XXXX game has stopped working error, that is with x-fire enabled or disabled.
