If you have a 4800 series card I do not recommend using catalyst 11.8. We installed 11.8 on a system with an XFX 4850 and it caused the screen to go blank every time. 11.8 did however run fine in that same system with a much older card so I believe this problem is specific to the 4800 series.

No problems here at all with the 11.8 on my 4830. Then again it's as they say, ever system is different even with identical hardware and maybe there was something in yours that disagreed with the 11.8.

Yeah I'm not sure what is up with this then but it does not work at all. I tried getting the driver from more than one place also just to make sure it was not a bad copy.

I would still like someone with a 4850 to confirm that it works just because but there should be little difference between a 4830 4850 or 4870 etc.

The board is one of the new gigabyte UD3 that supports the amd f1 apu I am thinking that may even have something to do with this but it is really hard to narrow it down.

either way I would be careful if you have the 4800 series cards if it happened once it could happen again.

I just got done installing 11.8 on a completely different platform with a completely different 4850 xfx card and again the system is hanging.

This confirms for sure that there is a problem with this version of catalyst and the xfx 4850 card. There is no way this could be caused by anything else at this point.

This time around I used my old lady's card and installed it on an Am2+ setup and again the system froze up as soon as I tried to do anything at all on it.

I am going to have to try to remove 11.8 and go back to a previous version now.

I may try installing it on this system since I have the xfx 6970 and see what happens.

^ that is a mod version that doesn't say what it fixes. Should people who are having problems with 11.8 beta test it?
