Well I finally made some progress. Just did a fresh install and ran the original ati drivers that came with my laptop and it worked perfectly. I now have the control center again. I know this wont help other people with the same problem unfortunately though.. Thanks for your input anyway guys. Will stick around this forum

I had somehow tricked my computer into getting rid of this 1 inch ring around the external mointor (24 inch dell)... however I reinstalled the most updated driver to try and get that Catalyst Control Center, and now I am screwed and can't get rid of it.

HELP!

edit* Still can't get the Catalyst Control Center to appear anywhere on my computer.

I have ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650 and am running driver version 8.632.1.2000 with a driver date of 8/17/2009

Update: A fix...

In screen resolution - making my 1st display 1176 x 1000 and my 2nd 1900x1200 filled up the 2nd screen and got rid of the black ring around the monitor. I saved this setting. Then went and changed the 1st monitor back to 1900 x 1200 and it was all good... full res on both monitors.

I am having the same problem - that is, the catalyst control center (ccc) does not appear although the installation log says it was installed successfully. I have a Dell 2407 24" monitor but do not have the black border issue. Installing the ccc 9.12 was a bit of an experiment as I have by ATI/AMD's standards an old legacy unsupported card (the ATI AIM 2006). Thank goodness Microsoft made a driver for it otherwise I would be SOL. I have always had ATI video cards and have several times vowed never again because of all the driver problems, but I like integrated TV tuners and nVidia doesn't make them but I keep getting fooled - I thought the catalyst drivers solved ATI's driver problems and I guess it does as long as just like Creative you buy and have their latest top of the line product. /rant OFF

damnit

Same problem here, it says it needs a restart after installing CCC and after the restart nothing has changed. no sign of CCC anywhere in my programs and when I run the setup it just installs it again.

OK, help me out here... According to your system specs you have an NVIDIA GeForce 9500GT 1GB? Is that correct? If not, what card do you have?

And you have problems with ATI's Catalyst Control Center not showing up?

In addition to that, you’re running build 7000 of Windows 7?

I have a Samsung 26" Windows 7 installs @ 59hz everytime it (re)starts.

In CCC it says 1920x1200 @ 60hz
The desktop area is too big for the screen area too! I don't know if that is a monitor setting - I looked and can't suss it out.

Works great on XP! Plug in, perfect desktop/60hz/text setup everytime!

I have to reset everytime manually to 60hz to enable correct screen text size that I like!
Sure are right about WIN7 wacky S**t - in parts!

oh sorry, old system specs on this forum, just updated them :]

I want to install the ATI Catalyst Control Center because of my mainboard, not because of my graphics card.
