you need to completely scrub out the old drivers..
what are you using to remove them?


I've been seeing bad reports from people using AMD's own tool for the job..
I wouldn't trust it meself..


- I use the DDU, it's very thorough..

you've got to be careful with it though, so read carefully..

Better not use the AMD Clean Up Utility...it deeply wiped many aside system drivers and Pci-e Soundcards....etc!

I will use the "Program & Features" manner, manually delete some leftover folders, CCleaner for registry leftover only!

Meanwhile...Guys is it worth installing those Beta drivers v14.6 v1 when you've got a single discrete card (R9 270X)?

Seems almost for those using high-ends R9 290 series, CrossfireX and mobility ones.

- it certainly wouldn't do any harm, NoN
according to the release notes, they are compatible:

Thanks for quick respond!

I've DL them anyway, i'll see soon that install.

I see more comments about the drop of Windows 8 support than issues with those Beta drivers....

Well those Beta drivers won't work on my system....

The setup went fine but upon reboot and just after login in, it gave me a blue screen (like a blank one), not a Bsod one. Had to hard reset, and, same happened with black screen (slight dark grey line appeared), still not a Bsod one!

Rolled back to the official v14.4!

But at least those official are working great....

That beta version works for all cards or specified versions? if it's limited to different card's use, please specify those card id's which are compatible with beta driver.

schock if you are referring to the HD 3400 listed in your specs, then no this latest beta (or latest official for that matter) will work with it. AMD dropped everything from the HD 4xxx series and down legacy a while ago. The last available for that series of cards is this one,

Legacy

As to whether it will install for you or not is another matter, seeing as you have a laptop.
