hi ive been having xfx ati radeon 6870 for a few months now,and it runs every game fine.but i cannot install the amd catalyst center,which i need for a few optimized drivers for certain game. Everytime i tried to install,it will stuck at midpoint.i tried to see if its not responsive but its not,it just stopped there for some reason.when i tried uninstall using windows,it always gives me error report and i can only remove the amd catalyst through cccleaner or driver cleaner,then when i tried to reinstall it stuck again.
if it helps it always stuck when installing AMD vision engine control system.
my spec is:
AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Processor, Black Edition (HDE00ZFBGRBOX)
XFX AMD Radeon HD 6870 900M 1 GB DDR5 DUAL MINIDP HDMI DUAL DVI PCI-E Video Card (HD687AZHFC)
Gigabyte MA785GM-US2H AMD785G Socket AM2+ MB
OCZ StealthXStream OCZ500SXS-B 500W ATX12V / EPS12V Active PFC Power Supply
i know i read around and heard people said if it works properly don't do anything about it,but i feel like i can get a bit better performance out of the card if i have a few additional drivers

I have the same problem, ACER AX1420, athlon 645, ati 6670, 8gb pc12600. Everytime I try to update drivers from amd website my comp. freezes right when I get to my desktop?? I've tried everything. I think it may be my mobo. I cannot do a damm thing to my bios very few ajustments can be made. Plus the PCI-E interface is by default a 2.0 the ati v-card I have i believe has a 2.1 interface speed. I think these driver updates are rediculas. It seems there are driver updates every frigin' month. They keep trying to make better what is not needed to be fixed...It's a pain in my ass....
