    ATI 4870 with Catalyst?

    Anyone with this Card got the CCC to work? Tryed to install the 12.4 and 12.3 (both for win7 32bit) drivers but the CCC couldn t load.

    The Error Message:
    Catalyst Control Center cannot be started.
    There are currently no settings that can be configured using Catalyst Control Center.

    Found a solution that will allow CCC to work with all features. You will need to downgrade e.g. redownload the 11.9 Version. Before you install it you need to a hard unistall of every other AMD software you installed before. That can be done tho Reinstaller Software or over the Control Panel (Express + ALL). If you unistall it over the Control panel you will need to delete the directory, just take ownership of C:/Program Files/ATI Technologies and delete it. Reboot and install CCC 11.9.

    This is the same version I had to use for all the Windows 8 pre-releases. It does work though.

    I had the same problem as well...I inevitably broke down and got a 6 series card. The only problem I had with the said fix above was that I couldn't control my fan speeds. Which is why I got the new card, now I'm ready for the final version of 8.

Does AMD Catalyst need to be running?
The question is simple. Do I need to enable the AMD driver Catalyst on the startup menu and have it running in the background of my machine? IF not necessary, does it benefit in anyway if the software is running?

I'm using a 50 inch plasma and Media Centre as an HTPC, which is good, but the screen needs to be adjusted with under/over sampling. To this end, I use Catalyst 12.1 to set the screen. In Win8, Catalyst 12.1 doesn't have the option to set the under/over sampling. Is there another way to do...
