Every. Single. Driver. This year has installed, EXCEPT the Display Driver. I'm getting very frustrated now. It always finishes, says there were errors, I go to the log and is says Success on everything except the Display Driver, which is kinda what Im TRYING to install.

I finally got fed up last night and tried everything, I uninstalled the drivers completely and tried to install the new one. Nope.

I COMPLETELY uninstalled my GPU, booted up with the integrated, shut down, re-installed the GPU, Booted up, tried to install the latest driver, everything installed except the display driver so everything looked terrible. So I downloaded 12.1(Old!) just so I could have a normal resolution while I try to fix this.


And now Im here, AMD didnt respond. I havent been able to install a new driver for about a year now. So Im stuck with 12.1.

I have an MSI HD5770 Blackhawk Edition. AMD Athlon II X2 215 CPU. 4G Ram. Phoenis AwardBIOS v6.00PG


Any help besides "Format and reinstall Windows" would be nice, thank you.

That is the solution that people give out at times, this is nothing I have tried but is found in the forum.

It is describe in this post.

Use it to clean up your system of previous drivers and I would suggest installing 13.4 WHQL unless you have a reason for anything newer.

I see there is a newer version available at.

I read through the post about that driver cleaner, it says it does what the AMD Driver Uninstaller does, PLUS some? What else does it do? Would I lose data? Or other Windows Drivers?

It removes all AMD related files forcebly that the uninstaller does not remove.

On the other hand, there hasn't been any significant improvements/fixes for our series of cards in these later drivers you refer to. I'm of the opinion 12.10 is the absolute best of the bunch.
