Windows 7: CCC runs, but CLI.exe stops/no gui

07 Mar 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit SP1
CCC runs, but CLI.exe stops/no gui

First, the problem: ccc runs, I can change 3D settings via the taskbar icon menu, driver seems to be fine. But when I click on catalyst control center in the right click menu (or anywhere else) all I get is a brief (20 seconds) loading circle thing, and no gui. Looking in task manager, CLI.exe appears, loads about 8k into memory, then sits for ~10 seconds and goes away. No error msgs, no crashes, just…nothing.

I think this may be somehow related to .net, but I’m not sure which version, nor how to fix it. I have .net 3.5.1 enabled in windows features, 4.0 client and full installed, and using a .net verification tool I seem to have 1-4 installed and working.

This makes no sense to me….it just one day stopped opening.

As a side note, I am running a second monitor off of the intel hd 3000 IGP graphics, and when I click on graphics properties from the intel HD graphics taskbar icon, it says “GfxUI has stopped working”, along with the following:

Stopped working

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: APPCRASH
Application Name: GfxUI.exe
Application Version:
Application Timestamp: 4f0cab4e
Fault Module Name: KERNELBASE.dll
Fault Module Version: 6.1.7601.17651
Fault Module Timestamp: 4e21213c
Exception Code: e0434f4d
Exception Offset: 000000000000cacd
OS Version: 6.1.7601.
Locale ID: 1033

I have tried sfc /scannow, and it comes back with “found corrupted items, but could not fix them”. Looking at the log, they seem to be mostly windows gadgets and WMP with some other random things thrown in. I have looked in \windows\assembly for the public key corresponding to ati/amd and there are none. Tried unistalling, then running driver sweeper, and it definitely removed the drivers and files, leaving me 800 x 600 till I changed it back. The catalyst version it 12-1.

I’m totally open to any suggestions at this point…really trying to avoid a fresh install.

Thanks in advance everyone!

Update: when trying to open catalyst, windows explorer become briefly non-responsive.

If I don't hear anything I'm going to just do a fresh install, this is just too frustrating.

that's an odd problem....there doesn't seem to be anything wrong with my drivers or catalyst installation, just the GUI. But I decided i'd had enough and just did a clean install, which fixed everything. no idea what was wrong, but this was one of several things, including my mother board's Bluetooth, that did not work.

I don't know what to tell you, though I have had similar issues in the past wherein upgrading catalyst versions caused very strange errors to start coming up. Had to fix that by reinstalling as well. IMO, AMD needs to get their act together and release driver packages that don't fail.

WDC Green: 750 GB runs Hot, 4 TB runs Cool ???
I have two external hard drives, both in Vantec NexStar3 USB enclosures. The older 750 GB WDC Green drive runs HOT to the touch, the 4 TB, and the 2 TB before that, run pretty warm but never hot. Why might this be, and would that much heat cause earlier than necessary drive failure?
