Solved

Installed a new OS, need help with CCC

So i installed windows 7 32 bit today on the laptop and also replaced the hard drive, but when i started it up it was all bulky and such and i lost my dual monitor function. So i ask a friend why its all bulky and looks stretched out and he says its because i don't have drivers installed for my graphics card. I have no idea where to even find the graphics drivers, im use a ATI radeon graphics, and AMD athalon x2".

If someone could please help me i would really appreciate it. :]


Thanks

    If you don't know your model, hit Download Now just below Automatically Detect and Install label ;).
  2. What is the model of your laptop if you don't know the GPU.

    Its a Toshiba, and the number is PSLC0U-02701G
  5. I believe the laptop versions it's called the AMD Vision Engine. You should download the correct driver. Don't get any desktop drivers. Get the laptop/mobile drivers for your specific graphics card.

    Do i download both or just the top one or just the bottom one?

    It also opened a program called "amd driver autodetect" is it already downloading it or do i have to chose from the website?
  7. Download both and install both.
  8. First one includes the second one, so if you install the first one (Catalyst software suite) it will install both drivers and CCC.

    Actually, AMD Vision Engine appears only when you have both AMD CPU and Graphics card, and is not exclusive neither to desktops nor laptops. It's just name change, that's it.
