I've tried to install and reinstall Catalyst 12.1 but for some reason the control center won't install.
After installing the suite the installer reports that there were errors but the log shows none. So I've tried installing all the components piece by piece from the temp directory but same result, all install fine but the control center does not. Seems the file: "ccc-core-static.msi" from "Core-Static-Net4 folder" is behaving in the same way.

A while back I had the same issue with 11.12 and 11.11. Ultimately I've switched back to 11.11 because it was the only version that offered the individual components, which worked fine.

Now that I've tried going to 12.1 I've noticed that there is only one package available and it appears to be broken, again. The old 11.11 downloads seem to have disappeared from the web and been replaced by a single package.

Haven't found any other solution to my problem, short of reinstalling windows, so any help would be appreciated

Now, you have a HD 3850, that stopped getting any noticeable performance boosts about...2 years ago. It has 320 USPs, which is less than a mid range card today. Here's your options:

1) Use an older Catalyst set, you won't notice any difference
2) Spend not very much money on an HD 7750, it's got more power than the 3850 (over twice the power), consumes much less power, and is modern

and you're also required, whatever you do, to take that Be-Quiet bomb out of your case, blast it to pieces with a shotgun, and get you a PSU which won't blow up.

Well let me explain... The 3850 is my old GPU. I'm using it until the 6950 comes back from RMA (2 Weeks already), so I wanna keep them up to date.

What's wrong with the Be-Quiet 680W PSU? Comes with a nice 5 year warranty and 55 Amps on the 12V rails and is 80+gold certified.
