i dont know whether this should go into drivers or graphic cards category, but mods pls feel free to move this thread.
Basically my problem is this.. I did a fresh install of Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit..
When i loaded into windows for the first time, Windows automatically detected my graphics card (Asus EAH4890 1GB) as Asus HD4890.. Anyway, i downloaded the latest version of Catalyst Control Center with drivers (version 9.9, and version 8.632). Oddly it didnt ask me for a restart..
Then i restarted and expected to find aero enabled.. Instead its not.. Windows Experience Index (WEI) gives me a score of 6.0 when ive read that 4850 are getting scores of 6.5 and above...
Also, ive run 7 before, and i definitely do NOT have aero enabled.. Ive tried editing the registry as suggested on the internet.. but to no avail.
Even in Taskbar and Start Menu settings, the Aero Peek option is ticked but the whole option is greyed out, so im assuming that its not enabled..
Im pretty sure my graphics card is working because i can play graphic intensive games on it smoothly, yet i still get a low WEI for it and i dont have aero enabled.
Im thinking it is the driver problem.. does anyone have problems with the Asus EADH4890? if not what driver version are you using??
All suggestions are welcome and will be attemped.
