    Just installed the 12.7 beta on my Zotac AD04.

    It's got an E-450 (Radeon 6320).

    Uninstalled old 12.3 drivers, rebooted, did Driver Sweeper 3.2.0, rebooted, installed 12.7, rebooted and...

    Here's the surprise:
    [​IMG]

    Driver Packaging Version: correct.
    Catalyst Version: 12.3 (WTF?)
    2D Driver Version: correct.
    Direct3D Version: correct.
    OpenGL Version: correct.
    AMD Vision blablabla: correct.

    Although the driver versions are all correct, the Catalyst Version shows as 12.3.

    Should I have used something different from Driver Sweeper?

    Haven't been on AMD/ATi for some time and I didn't have these kinds of problems with Intel/nVidia (though did have other kinds of problems, I'm not ranting at all).


    I'm getting random corruption every once in a while on VLC so... it seems that dxva is broken :cry:

    Edit: though working ok MPC-HC.

    Edit 2: just tried this video on 1080p and it works ok.

    So it seems that it only brakes dvxa on VLC (at least on my humble system).

    Edit 3: I just saw this: http://forum.guru3d.com/showpost.php?p=4352431&postcount=32

    It seems that the installation was ok, but that number in particular isn't set correctly, so modifying it by hand does the trick. Also seems that Driver Sweeper didn't do its job completely. Will use Atiman Uninstaller next time.

    ^You have 12.7 installed, not 10.7.

    Corrected the typos.

    Also... I wouldn't let CCleaner near my system.

    Edit: I see you also edited your post :eyes:

    I used to use RegCleaner back in the Windows 98 days. Haven't used generic registry cleaners sense then. They give me the creeps.

    It may delete a registry that's actually vital for the computer and you'll regret using it.

    Good thing Windows now a days lets you go back in time and undo some of that stuff.

    It's not a registry cleaner in that respect....I would never use a reg cleaner myself.

    CCleaner is very safe to use I promise you....began using it around 2005. :)

    Other than the registry cleaner on CCleaner I don't really see much use for it. My browsers are clean and optimized (with SpeedyFox) and I don't mind a few MB of wasted space on temp files. It's not like deleting them is going to make my system any faster.

    Also... we went a bit off topic. Sorry.

    On topic: dvxa seems to be buggy with VLC, though it plays nice with other software. Not sure if it's entirely AMD's fault or VLC's fault. I guess a little bit of both.

    Mainly I just use it for editing startup apps, cleaning temp files and deleting game cache files.
    With disk cache disabled Mozilla keeps all cache in memory so I don't need to clean those....

    I also run it when reinstalling drivers, but that's about it......

    Usually, the first AMD driver Windows 7 automatically installs is the WDDM 1.1, either by default or through Windows Update.
    When the user updates this driver, Windows 7 keeps a "backup". It "backups" every graphics driver version installed.
    This "backups" can be permanently uninstalled with Device Manager by checking the "Delete the driver software" box when the uninstall confirmation dialogue is prompted.
    The Catalyst 12.3 is the latest "backup" created by your system.
    You can uninstall it using Device Manager.

    I'm convinced the ATI driver team does minimal (or no) Crossfire testing on many of their new driver releases. Once again, on this driver set the Overdrive functions do not hold on my Tri-Xfire setup, it "Snaps" back to default settings on the 2nd and 3rd card. This causes major problems for me and I can't use the driver sets because of it.

    AMD/ATI 12.6 Driver PRoblems

    Tried updating to 12.6 for the first time on my new HP P6-2133W PC, and it was a pain in the rear, uninstall, driver sweeper, install, test with games, one game Causes TDR's alot, enough so i removed 12.6 and went back to 12.4, but hopefully i won't have to do that on every driver update go back to previous drivers.

    haven't used an ATI video card since my Radeon 9600XT, but i guess i'll figure out the driver issues

    One game having problems that i reported to both AMD/ATI and the Developer is Second Life Offical Viewer 3.3.3


    Though am liking the performance of the new Quad Core System alot

    WTF?? YES I read it and YES it was!
    Jeez... I don't give a f*ck what you're thinking; the CCC was showing 12.3 because IT WAS SAVED in the Win Registry! Are you thinking CCC guessed the "12.3" string up? NO. It picked the info from the string stored at Win Registry! Always uninstall your old drivers from Device Manger, DELETING the driver and you'll never have that problem again!

    PS: Against what many people say, you do not need Driver Sweep nor CCleaner to uninstall ATI/AMD drivers; the Catalyst Install Manager does it just fine! And if you use Device Manager too, you're done!
