    CCC won't run but the drivers were doing fine, I had to use the dell ATI drivers because ATI's detected that it was not Windows 7 even when I ran them in compatibility mode.

    @Capt.Jack Sparrow windows update can't seem to find anything.
    Try to install and older version of driver

    Same here peeps, I'm running here in circles... I'm with my ATI HD4650 installed as 'engineering sample' in the driver tab. If I change the driver will it work? Even Win8 telling me that his driver is the 'up to date' driver ?

    It's running fine over the last 30 minutes... but did anyone have trouble with this ?

    Hello Atlas, Its easier and quicker if you start a new post when you have a question, There is no reason why you cannot download and install the newest drivers for your card, I did Of course I cannot give you a guarantee that it will work but I see no reason why not.
