Catalyst 7.2 ISSUES

I cleared my previous nvidia drivers with drivercleaner3 and all that stuff.
i then install ati's drivers for my x1950pro and after all the installation process instead of the CCC i know i only get a screen saying that it is on basic view, and i don't know how to change it, as it has very few options to do anything.
has that happened to anybody else?

  1. You have it in basic display mode for the CCC.

    You have to go into options and change it to advanced, or go via the start menu into the ccc folder and select the advenced mode to startup in.
  2. What do you mean "go into options"? I don't see any options available.
    And how do I set it to advanced mode in the start up?

    Thanks.
  3. By going into options theer should be some options in the basic version that allow you to change to the advanced tab.

    To get straight into the advanced version go into your start menu>all programs> ati> catalyst control centre and then somewhere there should be CCC - ADVANCED as a program, run that and it'll load in advanmced mode.
  4. I'm sorry, but I don't see any of those options. Do you know what could have happened during the installation process or something?
  5. Ok, i need some more info first - what OS are you running?

    If it's vista, which version, and is your account the main user (admin) or a basic user, if you don't know and it's your pc you will be admin.

    Knowing these things will help in diagnosing the issue
  6. Thanks for the help.

    I'm running Windows XP Professional 32-bit. I'm under the administrator account.
  7. Click the Advanced tab;

  8. I can't see that button. As a matter of fact, I don't even see the skin, it's windows themed.
    Do you know what could be wrong?
  9. Ahh, did you only download the driver, not the complete package?

    The file you want is: 7-2_xp_dd_ccc_wdm_enu_41238.exe (29.3MB)
  10. Well in that case you aren't even getting to the control panel, either access it through the right clicking on the desktop and then select ATi Control Center, or go through the drop down list to properties, click, then the settings tab, then 'advanced'. Or go to the start menu all programs and select the Control Center.
  11. I am getting the control panel. It looks like the one TheGreatGrapeApe showed me, but without the skin and the advanced button. I did install the full package

    WTH? This is so confusing.
  12. Well the skin you chose afterwards (just showing the one I use) but you should have access to it somewhere, if not check the knowledge base.
  13. i fixed it!!!
    i simply reinstall the individual packet, and did a repair, and dizzam.
    thanks a lot guys. i really appreciate it.
