My computer has been working fine for over a year. Today I transported it to a new location, hooked it up to a TV (which it has previously worked fine with) and booted it. I was experiencing some sound problems with the audio skipping every few seconds on the TV (but not when I switched to my USB headset).
I uninstalled AMD Catalyst and downloaded the newest driver from their website. After reinstalling, the /Program Files/ATI Technology folder remains empty, and I do not get the control center appearing in the "right click" menu on the desktop. When I go on the device manager, my display device is listed as Standard VGA Graphics Adapter. I downloaded GPU-z to see if it could identify my GPU, but it has my display device listed as the Standard VGA as well.
Has my GPU been damaged? I am confused because the HDMI is connected directly to the graphics card, all the fans are running, and I am not having any video problems, or is this simply a driver issue?
no reason that would damage your gpu, download a program called " driver sweeper" run it in safe mode, detect and remove all gpu driver remains.
then go to amd's site, get the latest drivers for ur gpu, and install them
