Windows 7: installed HD 2600 pro card, installed AMS driver, but no ccc software?

installed HD 2600 pro card, installed AMS driver, but no ccc software?

I was wondering if this would help?
Fix - Catalyst Control Center - CCC - will not open/install

I see no evidence that the AMD driver installed at all.
Right click desktop does not show ccc, and ccc is not in the lower right panel.

Windows shows an amd driver 8.5 and driver date from 2009??
And the program says it is an install manager??

Going here to try this driver
Drivers | VisionTek ATI/AMD Radeon Graphics Partner

I think it is working with the visiontek driver.
Got message need to restart and log shows installed driver

The chipset/motherboard drivers installed? The main component needed is the AGP/GART driver, as without that the video card driver will not install.

Also what is the make and model of the motherboard?

It works with the visiontek driver.
AMD driver from AMD never installed.

Mother board is s875wp1-e intel server board.

Was that AGP/GART driver not installed until I installed the visiontek driver?

Never install AMD GPU Drivers for that card. only go with ATi Catalyst Driver because it's unsupported by AMD anymore.

You could try this driver and see if it works: ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro Driver v.13.9 free download for Windows Vista, Windows 7

RoasterMen the download you linked too is the exact same driver as what is available from AMD. The only difference is that it some 3rd party site and they changed it from AMD to ATI. Also with it being a 3rd party site you have no idea what if anything (not likely, but possible) may have been added to the installer.

Same thing applies to any desktop driver for AMD (or Nvidia for that matter) regardless of where the driver comes from (actual card manufacturer e.g.). The only difference if any between a driver from AMD/Nvidia and the card manufacturer is the manufacturer may have added their name/logo to the installer.

The same doesn't apply to laptop graphics drivers. Those can and usually have been altered by the laptop manufacturer to work with the screen, power options, etc. The core driver itself is identical to the reference from AMD. Same applies to laptops with switchable graphics, as the driver for both (usually Intel with AMD or Nvidia) has been integrated into the installer.
