I had a weird Catalyst problem. The install ran perfectly. No errors in the log. But, the Catalyst program wasn't available in Win 7. I knew from seeing other pc's at work that right clicking on the desktop brings up the menu with personalize. Catalyst is normally attached to that menu.
Also, I discovered my driver
was still Microsoft and an earlier version than the current ATI driver release in mid Sept.
After several uninstalls/reinstalls of Catalyst I found a legacy ATI Catalyst package that ATI/AMD released in Feb 2010.
Turns out the current Catalyst was ignoring me because the Radeon x1050 chip wasn't in its list of drivers
. It angers me that there was no warning or error in the log.
It cost me a lot of grief.
I also resent having a $150 gaming Graphics card purchased new in 2006 discarded as worthless legacy trash by ATI. This was a high end pci express card. Works perfectly in Win 7. When I replace my graphics card it will not be an ATI. Not after this legacy stunt.
Anyhow. If Catalyst refuses to actually install check to see if ATI expects you to use this legacy link. http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownloa...w_vista32.aspx
At least now I have catalyst to configure my desktop graphics.
