I've a Radeon HD 5970 and installed the latest CCC 10.8. Installed and after reboot, I got a blue screen and not able to login. After restoring windows it's working as usual. I'm using the old CCC 10.4 now. Tried with 10.7 and 10.6 but all has the same problem.

You have to uninstall Ati Catalyst first, remove Ati display adapter in Device Manager, and then clean the remnants of old Ati files and registry entries manually before you install CCC 10.8. The later versions of Ati CCC has some structural changes, such as excluding WDM drivers in the bundle.

If its as per what suat has mentioned then its either a problem with the HD 5XXX series cards or with the crossfire profiling.. I guess it could be the later.. Try disabling crossfire and then install the driver(s)..

Uninstalled, restarted system, and installed 10.8. Then I could open CCC and all it's options without any problem. After restarting windows crashed while loading. Got a windows restore message and restored. Reached to windows without any CCC. And saw a message 'CLIStart.exe bad image' and the details are: atiadlxy.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact your system administrator or the software vendor for support.

I run a 5850 on CCC 10.4 and will stay with what works for me.
Tried 10.5 and 10.6 and had nothing but problems.
Haven't even attempted 10.7 or 10.8 and don't really care to.

Do a system restore. Or while booting press F8 and check for 'restore to last good configuration' or something like that... then do it.. I did the same :)

Are you sure you downloaded the right driver for your OS? (win7 32bit, win7 64bit, winVista32bit, winVista64bit?)

I'm running 10.7 on my HD5850. No problems whatsoever. (Vista 64bit)


Yes I think i downloaded the correct driver. But the error seems to be like I downloaded the wrong one... I tried several times .. all the time, same thing happened...

hi.. zip... what do you mean by type? windows 7 64 bit or 32 bit like that ? or is there any other type other than that?

Mine is windows 7 64 bit. And I downloaded the CCC for the same.

I wonder if UAC is causing any problems.. Have you tried running the installer using 'run as administrator' command.?
August 29, 2010 7:20:10 PM

@emperus - No I ran the installer file as usual. Before restarting there is no problem . I can access the CCC. After restarting windows crashes...

I came across the same problem with win 7, the fix that worked for was to to install the 10.8 right over top of the old 10.7's, but I had to right click on the installer and click on run as administrator option on the menu, even i am the admin for my comp. That cleared up the problem for me. As for the profiles, you do have to uninstall the older profile then install the new ones, other wise you end up with 2 diff profiles in programs uninstaller, which confuses the drivers. :pt1cable:

This was a problem for me as well. It is called TDR (Timeout Detection and Recovery) but CCC 10.5, CCC 10.7 and CCC 10.8 do not have this annoying TDR issue in them except that it may happen once when I am connecting my HDTV Sony Bravia (besides my monitor) to watch a blueray movie disk. I am on CCC 10.8 now and it is very good for me. I have single HD5770 and I am no gamer.

I've re-installed windows again. And now it's OK.

So did anyone figure out the BSOD issue on start up? I have an HD 4870 X2 and I went from 10.4 to 10.8 and I get BSOD on restart. I tried 10.6 and 10.7 and they BSOD as well.

Seems like the dual GPU solutions are taking the hit.. My single HD 4870 has shown no problems till date..

I had exactly the same issue with 10.8 on Vista home with a HD 4670.
I had to reinstall XP, as I haven't got a Vista disc.

10.8 5850 no problems, never even used driver sweeper
