Hello,I did a clean reinstall and can't reinstall the amd video driver. I installed the video driver (Catalyst Control Center) but it wouldn't open. I removed it but it's not available as a download in the Acer driver website, what Can I do?(Thank you)

Have you had a look at the AMD website for drivers?

Yes my only option is to run Catalyst Control Center which won't open when installed.

What do you mean CCC won't open? Do you mean driver not installed and graphics not working properly or driver installed but just can't open CCC at startup or can't open CCC manually?

Have you tried contacting Acer. They should have a solution for you.

Driver not installed. I installed CCC in hopes that it would find my video driver and install it. After installing I cannot open it manually. It doesn't even show an error message.

I want that to be my last recourse, I didn't find them helpful on previous occasions.

CCC and the driver are separate component. You can have the driver without CCC. I suggest you download the full package and install that.

I am having the exact same issue with my ASUS Eee Pc 1015BX.
In fact, I was just preparing to open a new thread about the issue so this works out great :D 

Like your Aspire One A0722 my 1015BX it is Ontario powered, a C-60 as it may be.
The factory install worked fine but, as it was only Win 7 Starter, the first thing I did was crack it open, swap the drive and install Win 7 Home Premium (two installs of 64-bit, final install is 32-bit due to ASUS' lack of 64-bit support :pfff:  ).

No matter what I try, I can not get the drivers to properly install.
I attempted to install versions 11.9-11.5, working back from the newest, and additionally the drivers supplied from ASUS on the latest 32-bit instillation.

The AMD official driver packages install with the 'Vision Engine Control Center' but it only shows information on the CPU segment.
The ASUS supplied drivers do install CCC, but it can not be opened (same issue as OP).
I also tried AMD's 'Automatically Detect and Install' option.
When ran it could not locate any supported hardware :/ 

After all attempted driver installs the Device Manager still listed the Display Adapter as a 'Standard VGA Display Adapter'.

And to clarify, SP 1 was installed before I attempted to install any drivers (as 11.9 requires).

So, does anyone have any thoughts or suggestions?
AMD's E and C series are pretty popular right now so I am sure someone out there has encountered and solved this issue...

Thank you outlw6669 for you detailed description of the problem. I now have a better understanding of the situation. It looks like the environment requirement for the driver to work properly is very strict. I am running out of idea.

The problem is Acer took down the driver from their website for some odd reason.

That can happen. Acer make their laptop graphics to work only on their laptop specific driver and not on generic amd driver. So, no Acer driver at all? Not even old one?

Actually, he was sugusting that you download the drivers directly from AMD.
You can locate the 32-bit Drivers Here and the 64-bit Drivers Here.

Please give the official drivers a try and post back your experience.
I personally would be very interested to know if they work for you.

I have contacted Acer before although it was in South Africa and the service was great. Why I am asking is you said that they removed the drivers from the website. I had the same problem and they gave me details for their FTP site where they archive all the older stuff. Perhaps the drivers will be there.

No such luck. My video card still reads as vga driver. I installed the Catalyst package from that link and I this following error message: "AMD VISION Engine Control Center cannot be started. There are currently no settings that can be configured using AMD VISION Engine Control Center."

Well, that sucks, I guess it is not just me :/ 

I am going to open a thread in the Windows 7 driver section.
If I find an answer there I will post it back here.

Try giving the latest VGA drivers from the ASUS 1215B a try.
It is the first package I have found that actually works with my C-60.

Thank you, but it's virtually the same install that i've tried so far. It didn't work.

That is quite unfortunate then :( 

Probably the best thing to do now would be to Contact Acer Directly.
Give them a rundown of the issue, their driver team should be able to supply an updated driver.

I personally am going to try installing AMD's next few official releases as they come.
If any of them work with no issues, I will post further feedback.

Best luck!

you have to go to near service center near your home. They will solve your problem, sometime they do that for free. :bounce:  :bounce:
