Win7 Build 7068 x64 - a few problems

I have recently installed Windows 7 Build 7068 x64 and encountered a few problems

#1 - I have an ATI 4870x2 - I installed the actual Win7 drivers that ATI has and they seemed to install correctly but they did'nt ask me to "restart" like they should, and the CCC (Catalyst Control Center) would not even come up when clicked (even after restart)

#2 - I have the Asus Rampage Extreme X48 motherboard with an E8600. I have heard that Vista 64 drivers should work w/ Win7 64. They don't seem to want to run. It is an Intel X48 board, any ideas on where to get good chipset, SATA, etc. drivers?

#3 - I run my computer on a 1280x720 projector AND a 1280x1024 LCD. Vista lets me run the resolution on both at 1280x720. If I do this on Win7, the LCD will only show a widescreen (black bars) instead of skewing or stretching the res to fullscreen. Anyway to run 1280x720 on on both without the black bars on the 4:3 screen? Maybe this is because the CCC did'nt install correctly?

#4 - other than that I really like the OS

Thanks!!

Hmmmm... have you tried uninstalling the drivers, restarting them, reinstalling them, then restarting? Maybe your install got corrupted somehow.

Best solution

Download the new driver and app package - remember where you put it. Then I would manually remove the existing first - making sure you get it all. 'DriverCleaner' works on Win 7, and I'm sure there are other programs which do the same thing. Restart with no Video driver (looks horrible!!), and install the new one cleanly.

Win 7 properly identified and automatically downloaded and installed proper drivers for my P35. Your disc probably doesnt' run because Win 7 likely auto-installed something newer.

Perhaps... I haven't had occasion to play with those resolutions/aspect ratios, as I run a pair of 24" widescreens in 19x12

Thanks!!

I have the exact same problem with CCC. I have tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it cleanly multiple times and it still doesn't work. I have tried searching for a solution but cannot seem to find anything.

Using the Windows 7 specific driver (64 bit) for my 4850 x2
