Windows 7: Anyone having trouble with the new AMD drivers

Anyone having trouble with the new AMD drivers

I have a Gigabyte 6950 which ran exceptionally well with the 11.11 drivers. After installing the 11.12 drivers I have some problems with the graphics not showing right in places and the screen jerking in certain games. Battlefield 3 when in the helicopter the screen was like showing every 3rd frame. So, I installed the 12.1 drivers and it was worse. I'm considering going back to 11.11. I am just curious if anyone else was having a similar problem. And, yes I used driver sweeper in safe mode before installing new drivers.

No problems here with the 12.1 Preview on my 6850. Had the 11.11b on before that and no problems with it either. Can't say about the 11.12 as I never installed them.

Quick question, have you been installing the CAP's as well? If so the old should be uninstalled before installing the new CAP or driver.

I had some problems, booted into the Safe Mode, re-booted and they all went away.

Well, I guess I'll show my ignorance. I don't know what caps are, so I guess I didn't install them, just the catalyst package, the first one listed. I also noticed my card ran about 4 warmer than usual. I ran driver sweeper in safe mode, then ran the ccleaner registry cleaner and uninstalled everything AMD or display.

Did you do anything when yoy booted into safe mode? I did the same but the issues remain. 99% of the time it is fine, just occasionally, the problems appear, always in games though one old game COD4 and one new, BF3. Even then it is only certain scenes.

No.
It was a 1080p vs 1080i issue and lag in my video playback and mouse movement.
I booted into the Safe Mode as a last resort. Somehow I lucked out.
I hope you get yours sorted.
