im having some really annoying issues since switching from nvidia. i just bought a sapphire 7950 vapor-x. but cannot get  Vision Engine Control Center to load, plus my screen size is all over the place and no way to alter it.

i have read many things to try and sort it, but nothing works. i have pretty much tried every solution, but nothing. sort of makes me wish i stayed with nvidia, but hey ho im here now, does it mean its gona be a complete reformat job. and yes have tried the framework 4.5. drivers are latest from amd

Use this method, and uninstall any left over nvidia software using driver sweeper.

Installing new drivers:

Note: Any driver newer than 12.8 requires .net 4 to be installed. Please read

The following is a proven method for a 'clean' install of new drivers

1. Uninstall old drivers using computer 'uninstall a program' in the computer control panel. You will see "AMD install manager"..click it and choose ' express uninstall all AMD software including the install manager.
2. Reboot
3. Run Driver Sweeper http://www.techspot.com/downloads/4266-driver-sweeper.html . Select AMD graphics and delete all it finds.
4. Reboot
5. Download the correct driver suite from AMD (do not use auto-detect) and install. http://support.amd.com/us/Pages/AMDSupportHub.aspx
6. Reboot

Certain laptop drivers and all 'switchable' graphics cannot use this method. Please read:

AMD is a supplier of laptop components and does not manufacture or sell complete laptop systems. The software provided by AMD is a generic version.
