I have now installed 7 32bit three times. Everything works great until I install the latest calalyst drivers, upon restart windows ceases to exist and will not load.

Right now using the default W7 drivers my GPU score is 1.

Under VGA adapter, update drivers I can point 7 to the folder but drivers are not found.

It seems to be that windows cannot recogize the built in radeon.

I did not buy the A10 to have pathetic graphics. If the graphics on chip cannot be used to their full potential I made a huge mistake and should have just went with the I3 and bought a graphics card.

 

Anybody else having issues like this? I never had a build as horrible as I am having with AMD.

I'll add this. I grabbed the official 12.10 right from here [AMD] instead of using the ones from Gigabytes site.

Upon installing the VGA shows radeon like it should and asked for a reboot.

This is where windows hangs and goes into a constant boot loop.

 

events viewer, kernel-power [critical]

Is the APU damaged, turned off or is this simply a driver issue?

The chip works fine, ran prime95 etc with no issues.

Ironically on the processor thread I mentioned the chip I bought is made in

China, guess I was right to assume it's junk.

 

As I mentioned, I bought the A10 for the graphics, if they are useless I would have just went with a FX but as my past 6 builds were INTEL and flawless this is it, no more AMD for me.
