I recently tried updating my drivers from 12.3 to 12.4. I did my normal thing, I uninstalled it with the "Express uninstall all ATI software" and uninstalled drivers from Device manager (with the uninstall software button checked). Restarted then installed new drivers. When I check the CCC it says I have 11.5 installed. I tried uninstalling a million times in different ways, not restarting the computer and restarting the computer, not uninstalling old drivers and windows updates but nothing seems to work. Anyone else running into this issue? If it helps I'm running CrossfireX with 2 Radeon 5870's. Thanks.
I been seeing this around in forums all over the web, Uninstall CCC and video driver with like CCleaner and see if it works, Others will say to download another program to uninstall the driver within safemode (probably a better option)
I was about to start a new thread with this issue. Mine is slightly different. I recently upgraded from vista to windows 7 when i bought my new 3570k cpu, sabertooth z77 mobo, and new ram. When I try to update to 12.4 through Catalyst Control Centre for my 6870 drivers, it keeps showing me I have version 11.6.
I've done what you said, uninstalled old drivers, reinstalled new ones, restarted, not restarted etc etc.
It sucks as I can't even play BF3 because it says I need to update my drivers and when I try it DOESN'T WORK!!
Yeah I've tried CCleaner and Driver Sweeper and now instead of showing 11.5 it show "AMD Catalyst Not Available" lol as if I don't have the driver installed. It feels like everythings normal but it'll a little unsettling not knowing right now what version I have installed, if at all. I plan doing a clean install of Windows 7 this weekend but from what I've read above it doesn;t help! I'll let you know my outcome, but hopefully it isn't a hardware compatibility issue.
I plan on upgrading to Ivy Bridge some time this summer since I'm still using 1st generation i7 and I'd like to see the benefits in Autodesk rendering times. Let me know how you guys turn out with this problem!!
if it is hardware i think it has to do with crossfire. when you reformat try unplugging your second card until you have it updated maybe?
idk why that would matter but its the only thing i've changed and its when my problems started happening
I understand that you installed 12.4 but the system information has not changed to 12.4 instead it states that it’s running Catalyst version 11.5. If I have missed any critical information please let me know as my suggestions may change.
It has been a noted issue that when you update to Catalyst 12.4 it does not change the system information. Our Catalyst engineering team is currently working on it and there should be a fix for it in 12.5. If you went through the 12.4 installation and it was all successful it means that the system is using the 12.4 drivers just that the system information did not change. If you do need a current version number in the system information to play games or to run a certain application my recommendation is to install 12.3 for now till 12.5 is released.
That Happen to me too!!!! But I got it resolved. Don't download the driver at the AMD site. Download it on the other like filehippo or something? I forgot where to download it but I just search "ATI 12.4 Free Download" then choose other sites NOT THE AMD. Don't worry It's safe and AMD can still detect it normally
This is really frustrating for online gaming yet alone browsing the internet. I recently bought a setup with a 6970 and my gpu bogs out and comes back fairly often. I know it isn't overheating as it is a good rig. Good to see that other people got the 11.5 error like I did.
I took my build to my supplier and he updated mobo bios and set it to 12.3... guess what... still crashing. I want a fix soon.
