    I was hoping someone could point me in the direction of drivers that will work for my card. I have the Radeon HD 7690M XT. After upgrading to Windows 8.1, the drivers did not install correctly. Drivers from AMD's website get me the "cannot be installed [...] incompatible hardware" error. The only drivers I can get to work are the one from HP (note: They are listed as for "Windows 8" not "8.1"...possible problem?) but they are really old, and I would like newer drivers for gaming.

    I have used AMD's driver removal utility to completely get rid of the driver before installing the updated ones, that didn't work either...

    Anyone know what I can do?

    Thanks a million.

    Try disabling the driver signature enforcement in Windows before trying to install your driver.
