I do that often here as well since the Catalyst installer will automatically remove the previous version as part of the process. If you have any worries then simply run the setup.exe file usually found in the "C:\ATI\support\Cat. version #\Driver\" sub folder there and select the uninstall button.

I'm still to find a need to install Catalyst drivers over the standard Windows7 WDDM ones. I was gaming using them, and performance was identical. It supports dual monitor output right out of the box... so waht more do you need?

hmm, I suppose. I run a passively cooled card so I have no need for overclocking and fan controls so maybe that's why I never noticed them

Just saw the 9.6 go on another fresh install of 7 and no problems.

lol, that's fair enough

One of my cards sounds like a jet at high speed, so having a shortcut through CCC to switch from low/high speed is a must.

for anyone who's interested here's the XTREME-G 9.6 ATI drivers.....

these add a few extra options in CCC and deliver a tad better performance.

These are modified 3rd party drivers and are not official drivers from ATI.

Hi guys - just read the past 34 pages of this, and I don't think my problem is in there. My problem could be my own stupidity though.

I have the 3200 on a gigabyte motherboard with the HDMI going to a Video Processor then projector. The VGA out is to an Dell monitor which was only used when initially configuring the system.

All used to work on Vista with CCC (don't know what version, sorry), but I've just installed Windows 7, patched it with required updates and installed CCC 9.6.

Now, the Video Processor is a bit picky about what signals it receives, so I normally send it 720p @ 50hz or 60hz.

It seems that a lot of the options I used to have available in the Vista version are no longer available here (although the help mentions them). I can't force the displays anymore with HDTV settings - I have to switch to Windows 7's resolution setter and try and force it there.

Unfortunately, no picture. Am I doing something wrong, or are these extra settings (on the Display Settings tab IIRC) no longer available in Windows 7?

Apologies if some of this is garbled - I'm not writing from the same room as the machine, but I'll confirm later.

Thanks for your time, and great advice so far.

Hey simon and welcome to SF

Not garbled at all in fact quite good for a first post. The only thing Im thinking is what rev win 7 you running? the picky driver might have ( of may) be worked out already.

Again welcome

Thanks Ken. I'll check the Windows version tonight when I get home, but it was downloaded last Wednesday if that's any help.

A dialog looking something like the attached is what I was used to, but now no longer see.
