    Try booting into safemode and running driver sweeper to uninstall the current drivers. Then re-boot into windows and install the 14.1. If no joy you're gonna have to delete from the registry (at your own risk).
  2. i did try to uninstalling from registry but nothing happend, ill try to boot into safe mode as you say
  3. Do a complete wipe of the existing driver with this

    And then make sure you install the right driver from AMD
    http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/mobile?os=Windows%207%20-%2064

    Make sure to run the installer as administrator. I heard you can get issues if you don't do that.

    If you still can't use Mantle, don't panic. Mobility graphics cards do not have complete Mantle support yet. Especially with BF4.

    There is a modded version of the driver available that seems to enable Mantle with certain laptops. If you try it and screw up, don't blame me.

    Then probably just the version bug. It doesn't do anything. Certainly not worth messing up the registry just to have it show a different version.

    I had it before and it went away after a few new drivers. As for Mantle maybe wait for a newer driver with better mobility support.
