AMD Catalyst Control Center won't install

Ok, so I decided to crossfire my two graphics cards (R9 280x and 7970, they are compatible) using AMD's catalyst control center. After this, I realised new drivers were available and started to update them, mistakenly not uninstalling the current drivers.After realising my mistake I uninstalled all AMD-related drivers and folders using a driver cleaner and used the catalyst installer to install the new drivers. However, when I do this, no drivers are installed, Catalyst Control Center isn't installed, and the destination folder is just a copy of the folder I installed from. When I check the graphics cards in device manager, the driver is just called 'Standard VGA graphics adapter'.

I can install the drivers manually, but I still need Catalyst installed to set up crossfire and eyefinity etc. Any help would be appreciated :)

P.S. I am using 64-bit Windows 7

  1. Try a system restore. See if working.

    Sadly no luck there :(
  3. Try booting in safe mode and uninstall all graphics related drivers.
    Or reinstall Windows.

    I have tried removing and reinstalling drivers in safe mode (to no avail), however I have lots of data on my hard drive that would be very hard to recover, are you sure there is no other way other than to reinstall Windows?
  5. You might try with regedit, to search and remove every Catalyst entry. It's risky, if deleting wrong entries by mistake.
    Check also http://www.tweakguides.com/ATICAT_4.html
    After that, you can try reinstalling it.
  6. Are there any specific places I should look?
  7. Just search and F3 (next) till the end.
    Make sure that all entries you'll delete are related to the Catalyst Control Center.

    Not sure what went wrong, but it seems that you have to prepare it for Windows reinstall.
    You can move the needed files to a different partition (if available).
  10. use Ccleaner to remove all files.
    Then let it also remove unused extensions from registry
    Reinstall.
