I recently purchased a radeon hd 7850 2gb gfx card and installed it today, but when I put the resolution in 1920x1080 it wont go full screen. The thing is, it was just working fine in full screen with my old gfx card. When I go into safe mode 1080 works as normal... im pullin my hair out. I also cannot open the AMD vision control center although when I try, it shows the process " atieclxx.exe "running in task manager... Im going to try and reinstall drivers but was wondering if anyone knew of stable drivers from guru3d or something cuz the drivers from AMD site are seemingly installing successfully but aren't working correctly.
yea pluggin it to hdmi port on new card (also tried DVI to hdmi with same results). now when i start up, ccc.exe pops up like 3 diff times and asks if i want to allow it to make changes to the computer. I click yes each time but nothing seems to happen... could it be that my card is somehow faulty? it still plays all the games I want it to, but just in "fake" 1080 mode. it says its in 1080 on my 23" monitor even tho the viewing space is that of a 22"
I also tried installing driver version 12.2 and managed to get it full screen, but windows AERO stopped working.. , I read that selecting windows 7 default scheme could possibly jump start AERO but I had no such luck.
No. PCI express is backwards compatible. Your issue is most likely buggy drivers (like always, from our dearest AMD). I'd suggest reinstalling windows. I know it might be a hassle, but that's the only way of fixing major driver issues.
