    I have to update what I said. I too had to disable all AA in Skyrim and only use the built in FXAA. With any kind of regular AA on, I had blocks all over and even holes in buildings and trees. I never had a problem before and was able to use 4X AA in the game settings. Maybe I'll try forcing through Vision and see what happens.

    In WoW and Lotro, everything is fine and performance seems to be up some.

    Well, Skyrim is unplayable using any kind of AA other than the FXAA in the game settings. I don't know if it's the driver or the latest Skyrim update since I hadn't played since before that. With AA on, Whiterun looks like it was bombed with big holes in all the roofs and the map has artifacts all over it.

    You need to uninstall and display drivers -AND- CCC, reboot too safe mode, use driver sweeper and wipe the old drivers out, reboot to desktop and install the new drivers and CCC, reboot, done, you should have CCC function restored

    What in the world is going on with AMD drivers team?! 12.2 whql for xp has THE EXACT SAME DRIVER as 12.1...which shows as 8.921!!!! This is NOT 8.950, at least the xp driver isn't even though its labelled 12.2. :3eyes:

    Maybe because no support for 7970 on XP?

    I have this also, with every 12.xx driver released and going back to 11.10 preview2. You can solve this by uninstalling the new cat drivers from add/remove software, reboot in safemode and use driversweeper latest version, it will cleanout all ati files for your videocard and several registry settings, again reboot in normal mode and then ccleaner to be safe, now you can reinstall 11.10 preview drivers.

    As for uninstalling with that dark screen, that's impossible for me, and win7 wont let me uninstall through add/remove in safemode. Had this yesterday and only option was to use driversweeper in safemode, delete the graphics device from hardware manager, and after reboot start all over again.

    I'm convinced it's a leftover file from newer drivers that conflict with 11.10 preview drivers since it doesn't occur with whql drivers.

    If ccc doesn't load up, as was the case for me, uninstall again the 11.10 from software menu and afterreboot cleanout again and reinstall. Fixed ccc for me.

    ps. stupid me for always being too hasty in removing and reinstalling different drivers, and then forgetting some important part in the process...

    I did the same thing as above...and tried both 11.10P2 and P3 but the dark screen problem still here.

    I am using driversweeper 3.2.0 as the program itself said there is no update. And now I just did the clean up in safe mode. and I run this in normal mode it said nothing found so I assume that there may have something left inside my system but I dont know how to find them...

    Thats why I start putting the driver on desktop so I can click it and uninstall it.

    ==================

    updated 14:29
    I found that there still have lots of ati/amd files inside the system after I uninstalled and ran the clean up with driver sweeper/ccleaner.

    e.g. C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\Temp
    but the problem is they said I dont have permission to delete them...

    and also something like
    C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\c7119606.inf_amd64_neutral_ec3f6b7918bf75fd\B119700

    updated 15:12
    after 5 hours of trying I am now giving up...just make the ccc working with this 12.2 whql.

    I may do a new partition just for 11.10p3 to play bf3.:bang:

    do these work with 7950 and Portal 2 ? The 12.2 / 12.3 previews (14th and 28th Feb) will crash Portal 2. Other games work fine though.

    I hope these work out the kinks on my 2x7970 ?

    I always rebuild from scratch when replacing a major component in my system.

    just ready to drop 12.2 onto the METAL baby.

    Fingers crossed and image (minus drivers) secure on a seperate drive.

    Here weeeeee gooooooooo.

    One major issue is that the core clock locks at 400mhz when playing videos/streams. So even if you run a game that needs the full core speed, its not happening.

    To add to this, I turned Catalyst AI down to the quality setting and unchecked the surface optimization option. Now everything is much sharper and clearer in all games and performance also has increased. I still can only use FXAA in Skyrim though.

    Is that a separate thing like an injector? If so, no thanks. I've tried those before and always wound up getting rid of them.

    Had this problem. Read some blurb about it being due to games forcing antialiasing

    So I Set Antialiasing to none (in options in the launch menu). It went away. Helped me a TON. Hope it does the same for you.

    yeah, you should turn off any in-game AA if using injectors..

    I fear they no longer support 6990 card since 12.1 drivers because no matter what I do the overddrive section of the ccc doesnt work at all with any drivers above 11.12.... sad
