Windows 7: Graphics issues with ATI/AMD drivers

Graphics issues with ATI/AMD drivers

After having updated the graphics driver for my ATI Radeon HD3650, I've got some weird graphical problems in many of my games.

It is confined apparently only for games that run with DirectX, for games like Minecraft that uses OpenGL, has no problems.
This picture describes the problem well. Some of the objects polygons simply disappear, so the figure gets a lot of holes..
- The example picture is from Valve's Portal game.

The problem occurred long time ago, but I just have not played any of the games that have had problems for quite some time. I can not remember when it exactly happened.

Some suggestions for a workaround? I would rather not sit and had to tinker with installing an old driver.

I've got same problem with you after I updated the driver for my ATI 3650 HD..

But, this problem solved for me after Uninstalling the AMD Display Driver..

Go to "Control Panel", "Uninstall or change a program" and Right Click on the "AMD Catalyst Install Manager" then select "Change".

On the AMD Catalyst Install Manager window, "Next", click on the first one "Uninstall manager", "Next",

On the Uninstall Window, select :"Custom", "Next" , and click on the "AMD Display Driver" only. "Next", wait until the uninstalling progress complete. "Finish"

Try to check your game or restart your PC if you need to before check your game.

It works for me. I don't know if it works for you. I hope it works too..

but, on some forums, the simplest way is to Uninstall the driver (complete uninstall), and then Install the AMD Catalyst 12.1 or 12.2 driver..

Sorry for my bad english..
