  1. run DRIVER SWEEPER to remove all the (tiny) files remaining of CCC. if that doesn't help then try to reset CMOS.
  2. did that and my mobo doesnt have cmos button!

    The best way to install CCC is to first remove the existing AMD drivers by running the uninstall utility. You can find this in the following way:

    Control Panel -> Programs and Features -> AMD Catalyst Install Manager -> Change -> Express Uninstall all AMD software

    You will then want to remove a few things that the uninstaller leaves behind. This includes the AMD folders in Program Files and Program Files (x86) if you have a 64 bit system. After that, remove the ATI folder in "C:\Users\<your username>\AppData\Local" and "C:\Users\<your username>\AppData\Roaming". Also check for those folders in Public and Default

    Next, run Driver Sweeper to clean out the registry. Normally this isn't necessary if your original driver suite was of version 12.x but if you've previously had an 11.x version installed it is recommended. If you're having problems, run it anyway.

    Finally, reboot and install the 12.7 beta drivers.
  4. Can you please explain how resetting the motherboard's CMOS is going to fix some driver problem within windows?
