CCC Will not load

I understand there are several topics on this, but searching, I could not find any that fit my problem and system specifically and could help me. I have never used a forum, so forgive me in advance.

I recently rebuilt my system. Before I was using Vista extreme, with 1 HD 5770 Card. Catalyst opened up fine and everything. I upgraded my system recently, and I went from VIsta to Windows 7 and added a second 5770. However, now, CCC will not load. I installed it correctly, but I cannot get it to stay open, and what is worse, is my system wont even read my second card, or Crossfire. I have tried uninstalling everything, and reinstalling, drivers and all. WIth no luck. Any suggestions? I do appreciate your time.

  1. You have installed net framework 3.5?
  2. I have 4 installed as an auto windows update. but thats it. I need 3.5 specifically?
  3. After looking, i cannot *install* it, it tells me i can only adjust it in my windows features settings, which... its checked
  4. Version 3.0 of the .NET Framework is included with Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista. Version 3.5 is included with Windows 7

    In Windows 7 you need to enable net framework 3.5 the following way.

    1. Open the Start menu and click "Control Panel".
    2. Under the "Programs and Features" category, click the "Turn Windows features on or off" link text.
  5. I looked into this problem a bit more it seems that you need the latest version of CCC and the latest updates for net framework. Also you need to completely clean any trace of previous versions of CCC.

    See this link for more information, ATI do provide a utility to completely remove all traces of CCC.

    What is your PSU brand and model? Are you sure your PSU have sufficient capacity for 2 GPU? Have check w/ PSU calculator to verify the capacity of your PSU.

    If your PSU is not sufficient for your gpu it won't load the driver.

    I use manual procedure for installing CCC. I have microsoft visual studio on my pcs. The only option to install/update driver is manual process.

    I just want to make sure that we are not dealing w/ PSU issue.

  8. Here's the procedure to install CCC. Update the version since i wrote when the version is at 9.xx


    Install/Un-install procedure for CCC @ command prompt environment:

    Un-install ATI driver

    Log in as administrator

    @ Command prompt execute the following instructions

    Go to C:\ATI\SUPPORT\9-REV_vista64_win7_dd_ccc_wdm_emu\Driver\BIN64 for 64 bit OS
    Go to C:\ATI\SUPPORT\9-REV_vista32_ win7_dd_ccc_wdm_emu\ Driver\BIN for 32 bit OS

    Type the command “atisetup.exe –uninstall”

    This will remove the current or older ATI driver on your PC. Wait for the process to complete.

    The Font will get big as the OS will revert to default VGA driver. This is expected or normal just as when installing windows for the 1st time.

    Reboot your machine after the completion of the process
    Install ATI driver
    Log in as administrator

    @ Command prompt execute the following instructions

    Go to C:\ATI\SUPPORT\9-REV_vista64_win7_dd_ccc_wdm_emu\ Driver\BIN64 for 64 bit OS
    Go to C:\ATI\SUPPORT\9-REV_vista32_ win7_dd_ccc_wdm_emu\ Driver\BIN for 32 bit OS

    Type the command “atisetup.exe –install – output screen”

    This will install thew ATI driver on your PC. You will see DOTS on the command prompt terminal. Wait for the process to complete.

    When done the ATI CCC installation log will come-up to detail the installation summary.

    Reboot your machine

    Configure your graphic settings when you log in.


    Notes:

    1) @ command prompt type ”ATIsetup.exe -?” it will give you the list options for the ATIsetup.exe installation program

    2) 9-Rev is whatever revision of ATI driver you are using (i.e. 9-10).

    3) Always un-install old driver before installing the new rev driver
  9. The problem I am having is Catalyst wont even install on my system. I do install the correct ones, but when prompted to reboot, I do so, and its no longer on my hard drive. the ATI folders are there, the program files are there, but its no longer installed.
  10. Go through the procedure and should install
  11. I hope I am just not explaining this very good... but I am installing it the right way. I used catalyst for years. Just... all the sudden with Windows 7, it will not stay installed onto my hard drive
  12. The manual procedure bypass the GUI base installation that has issues w/ C++ libraries in the OS. That's the difference.
  13. Go to the folders and the files should be there. Then install Catalyst from the command prompt. It bypass whatever conflict it has w/ C++ libraries w/ windows.

    When you start the GUI base CCC installer it will install the files on the folder. Then it will Launch the installation program. If it fails the files are on the C:/ drive.

    You can go to that folder through command prompt and install the driver.
  14. Do you know how to go/use the command prompt?
  15. Sorry it took so long to respond. But No, I dont suppose I do. I am not a tech expert when it comes to that kind of thing. I know how to get into the commpand prompt window and do basic functions, however
  16. Can you get somebody who knows his/her way using command prompt commands?
  17. if there is a dummy proof way, i can. i can use basic functions if told, short of that, no.
  18. Questions:

    Have tried to install the driver w/ one GPU? That is the original GPU you have.

    Have you tried installing the original driver that came w/ your GPU?

    Are you using the same brand of GPU or different maker(i.e. XFX & Asus)?

    I'll think of something on how to get you going w/ command prompt disc/file instructions. For the meantime you can google and read some basic knowledge on DOS. The very basic on how to change drives... find a file commands. You don't need to learn the whole thing. Just the basic instruction
