Windows 7: ATI Catalyst Control Center: Experience With ?

ATI Catalyst Control Center: Experience With ?

Hi,

Have a new HP PC with a Radeon HD 4650 Graphics card.
64 Bit OS, MS Home Premium.
6 GB memory.
Not sure what kind of on board memory my Radeon Card came with

Had all sorts of error msg's concerning Windows Explorer needing to shut down, with Windows7 re-fixing itself, and then working for another hour or so, when the error msg's would start again.

The only thing I could correlate it with was my attempts to download the ATI/AMD
Catalyst Control Center. I could not do the install, as it would not install.
Some of it may have, though ?

And, like most stories like this, I probably changed other things also in trying to find the cause of the Windows Explorer needing to shut down messages, so am not 100% sure it was due to the ATI Catalyst Control Center or not.

But, I did remove every trace of it I could find, and things seem to be happy now.

Still, I would like to use it.

Was wondering about any experiences you folks have had with the ATI Catalyst Control Center ? Works for you, problems installing or using, caveats, experiences, etc. ?

Thanks, and Happy Holidays,
Bob

Seems to be working for me. I used driver sweeper to remove my Nvidia drivers, then installed the ATI
drivers. I did have to install from the folder that the drivers extracted to, but otherwise my 5750 and
control centre run great.

I used my friend's computer few days ago, he's on Radeon HD5970. When I use it, it never threw any error in anyway. Have you checked Event Viewer? If you can, clear events, then subscribe any events that has to do with explorer.exe, see what comes up.

ive had to reinstall it 3 times , what does it state when you fire this up & click ''custom''

Hi,

Haven't convinced myself that I really want to play again with this.
Had all sorts of troubles about a month ago when I tried.
Don't remember the actual error messages, etc., but it would not install "correctly".

Will let you know results, if I do try again.

Regards,
