I do have another program called speccy from piriform that might provide more information.
But here is the requested info.

Thanks in advance.
And possibly other problems.
Yeah i was told that a few days ago, but i been using Driver Booster for about a year now,
and i never used the beta versions.

Um is this a laptop or are you using a desktop?
Have you tried going to the respective graphics card websites using their auto-detect utility?

AMD:
AMD Driver Autodetect

NVIDIA:
NVIDIA Driver Downloads - Automatically Detect NVIDIA Products

That's the main problem, my pc can't see anything other then the Intel display driver,
and because of that the auto detect can't do anything.

the AMD catalyst won't work properly, it seems to install just fine but it never boot's up, not even in safe mode that means the pc has no means of detecting that there is any AMD card at all, since there is nothing to prove it.

Think about it like a cycle pc can't see AMD display driver > auto detect won't work because the pc can't see the AMD display driver > AMD Catalyst won't boot up so there is nothing proving to the pc there is anything AMD related.

Or at least that's how i see it.

What is the model number, do you have it?

As of this Autumn/Winter AMD has ditched the Catalyst software and released a new version called Crimson, you should maybe try and install it rather than trying the Catalyst, and AMD has also said it has ditched cards older than the HD7000/8000 + R9 series!

it says "amd radeon - hd 7770 up to 4095mb"

Well since Catalyst is still downloadable i will assume that it's still supported or needed to some point.
Besides i just tried installing Crimson and it didn't work, the folder seems to be there "like it's installed" but no desktop icon or anything supporting the fact that it is there besides the folder, just like Catalyst.

When installing anything AMD related it seems to analyze then install, however the installation part will jump from 2-5% to 100% in what could be 2-3 seconds and then confirm that the installation is successful.

Into the Intel HDMI port, since the AMD card port does not work, my Samsung monitor will act like it's searching for a picture when plugged into the AMD card port then go on standby mode when it fails to connect or get a picture.
