My desktop is very ugly right now P.S. I have a radeon hd 6870

No I don't have that issue with my dual gpu setup Hd6870's im running 12.2 got it today 12.3 i don't think it is really available ATM because a few days ago it was still 12.1 maybe a 12.3 preview drivers but im good off that last time i used a preview driver it cause my cards to crash and heat up insanly

Updated today from the vision control center and it says 12.3. Maybe it's lying to me.

Thanks Brain, the uninstall re-install did the trick.

Was a bit concerned after the uninstall since transparency still wasn't working, but after re-installing the drivers things are back to normal.

Update: After shutting down my comp and booting up an hour later the transparency is again not working.

Will look into the monitor drivers.

Edit: Having a hard time finding those drivers. All I seem to be able to find is the catalyst suite, application profiles, hydravision (sound a little like dexcube which I used to like), and some codecs. Not just an individual driver.

This is just for those that are worried about what Cat version it is showing in CCC/VECC,

And again, no it does not affect anything with how the drivers function.

I am having the same problem - Just upgraded to 12.2 (Shows 12.3 in Catalyst CC).

1. I choose Aero theme (Windows 7)

2. Try to select Window Color but all I get is the regular 'Window Color and Appearance' dialogue and not the Aero color selection

Uninstalled and re-installed - still fails. v 12.1 worked just fine
