Do i need ati catalyst install manager

do i need ati catalyst for my windows 7 and internet to work properly? I constantly have a box come up saying the catalyst control host application has stopped working and some internet games dont work properly. I also cant change my desktop theme now and I dont know if that has anything to do with it. Please help. This is a single family pc that mostly gets used for internet gaming by my mother. In my device manager it shows AMD M880G with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250 as my display adapter

  1. Uninstall your ATI display drivers if any have been installed, and install the current driver from here (or replace the 64 in the link with 32 if you have 32 bit windows):

    And see if that fixes your problem.
  2. I have an AMD PCI Express (3GIO) Filter Driver is that the device driver for the ATI?
    Thank you for your help.
  3. And why does a box keep popping up saying that catalyst control centre host application has stopped working? I have a feeling these all go hand in hand but do not know how to resolve the problem.
  4. If u have problems with AMD Sabine and Dual Graphics or after install new CCC at the end of installation shows up some "WARNINGS ?" then try my way to solve this :

    After reistall Windows 7 on my laptop K53TK I started install software in order :

    1) Chipset driver (INF update)
    2) ATKACPI driver
    -------------------------------------------- - this is important part ! : because AMD Chipset install double C++ 2010 x86 and x64 and AMD Catalyst Install Manager (SUCKS !!!) which (i think) takes conflicts when u install CCC 12.4 or 12.06 beta so i decided to unistall double visual c++ and AMD Catalyst Install Manager (reboot) and then use some driver sweeper and unistall AMD Display completly...

    Then u can continue the software installation as u see below :

    3) VGA driver
    5) Audio driver
    6) Modem driver (optionall - if u don't have it just skip it)
    7) LAN driver
    8) Card Reader driver (optionall - if u don't have it just skip it)
    9) Wireless Console
    10) Bluetooth driver (optionall - if u don't have it just skip it)
    11) Wireless driver (optionall - if u don't have it just skip it)
    12) Other drivers
    13) Utilities
    14) Microsoft updates etc...

    so i hope u can use my tip and solve problem ;)

    PS: visit this forum and see my topic about this (but this is in Polish language so if u want to i can translate some info ;) )
