Windows 7: AMD Catalyst Display Adapters

AMD Catalyst Display Adapters

Okay this has been driving me nuts. Why aren't the other panel thingies like the Display Driver, Sound, Video, Gaming, Performance and all those stuff aren't showing up on? Here's how it SHOULD look and this is how my Catalyst looks like
I guess I haven't "yet" installed those other settings. All I have is the Generic PnP monitor by default. So... help me.


And yeah, I know I sound like an idiot. :P I'm not a computer specialist.

You might of loaded a laptop driver
Now if it is it might be a switchable graphic one and thus you won't have to many options kind of cut and dry

But if it isn't a laptop I would uninstall the driver and use http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/deta..._sweeper).html clean up all driver and re install from http://www.amd.com/us/Pages/AMDHomePage.aspx that would fix your issue if it isn't working correctly

Were you trying to install the latest (13.4) or this one,

http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownloa...w-vista32.aspx

as it is the last available for the HD4xxx series of cards. If it was the 13.4 then that is why your CCC is empty as there is no driver support in the latest drivers for that series of cards.

I saw the very same problem with the AMD drivers for my HD 4290 -- but that was only running Windows 8. That requires a very different way of forcing the driver installation by NOT using the AMD installer.

And, as Stormy13 indicated, v13.1 is the last version that works with your card. I tried using 13.4, and it crashed my PC.

Nice idea vrosa, but again there is no support in that driver for the card that Amazing Aura has.
