Hello! I am new to this site and I am not the most computer savy so bare with me. I have been having some problems lately with my graphic card, which from what I am reading from my device manager is a ATI Radeon HD 4600 series.
Now the problem I have been having is updating it recently every time I would restart my computer I would have to re-update my AMD Catalyst program from 12.3 to 12.6 (which I've done 3 times.) Someone told me to fix this issue of having to re-update it every time I reboot, I need to go to msconfig and uncheck AMD(in the start up menu) and that would fix it. Since I have done that(and I rechecked it after this) the install hangs and will not complete 12.6 update. Now because of this when I try to use certain programs like World of Warcraft Mists of Pandaria my computer will go black every 5 to 10 minutes then go back on and say that the graphic card stopped working and then corrected itself(AMD is still at 12.3 keep in mind.)
The other issue that I have had (and I am not entirely sure this relates to the graphic card or not) is that I have recently got a HDMI chord to connect from my computer to my LG TV, now the display works immaculately BUT no sound comes out of the TV and when I initially plug in the HDMI chord my computer displays a message saying that the there is not sound and that in fact it isn't even a HDMI chord but a DVI. Now I'm not sure if this has anything to do with my graphic card or if I'm just shooting up the wrong alley.
Anyways, thought I'd ask you guys and see if anyone has any knowledge/ideas on what I could possibly do to fix these situations. Any and all help or input would be most appreciated, thank you.
