    AMD A8-7600 APU Driver issue


    Hey guys, the new computer I have has no graphics card, however it does have an AMD A8-7600 Kaveri APU with R7 Series graphics built into the APU. The problem I'm having, is that the drivers that came with the pc were crashing my feed the beast client when they'd stop responding and then recover. So I updated the drivers to the latest version hoping that it would fix the issue.

    Instead, it's caused things like this:
    imgur: the simple image sharer

    To happen on the screen. That was taken from the game itself, which means it's actually being processed by the game. This only started happening AFTER I updated the driver though, but I don't want the program crashing every hour either. So any ideas on how to get a functioning driver? I cannot find a list of drivers that are compatible with my APU, only the latest ones are on the AMD downloads page. Can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks

    PS: I completely removed the old drivers before I installed the new ones, although the AMD install manager didn't have an option to be removed so it hasn't been changed at all.

    Specs:
    Windows 8.1 64 bit
    8 GB of RAM
    cpu/graphics listed above
    1 TB HDD

    Catalyst can be uninstalled from Programs and Features in Control Panel. I do believe there is also a "Clean" install option that will remove any old profiles etc during the install. Filling in your system specs will help us figure things out.

    I had "has stopped responding" issues with some of the older drivers. The one supplied my ASUS for my laptop being one of them, but not the latest direct from AMD.

    The drivers that are causing the issue in the screenshot, are the LATEST from AMD. So I'm looking to rollback to the drivers released before these ones.

    If someone can just find me a set of drivers that'll work for the R7 graphics in the APU, with no issues, I'd be a happy man. 14.4 CCC lists these graphics as a supported type, but anything higher doesn't list it from what I've seen. Neca lost the link for the 14.4 CCC download... so gg.

    Searching Google for 14.3, 14,2, 14.1 etc, seems to only turn up Beta Drivers? I didn't see any see links to older drivers on AMD either? Don't know what to tell you?

    Yeah I know Ok, so have we got anything BEFORE 14.4 that's stable and supports the R7 series graphics?

    It could be a conflict... I'll try looking into if I deleted the folders in C: before installing.

    I don't know? My laptops are A-10 A-8 APU's. My desktop PC's are both NVidia. My wife's Acer with the A-8 seemed fine with all drivers. My ASUS with the A-10 was the one with issues with some of the older drivers. Ironically, it was the ASUS supplied driver that had issues. Updating to the 14.4 from AMD is what fixed it fore me. My guess was that the ASUS supplied driver may have been geared more for 8.0 than 8.1. Once I had a stable driver I lost interest in exploring it any further. Both of my laptops have switchable graphics which are both AMD/AMD so I could go right to AMD and skip ASUS.

    This whole build is basically AMD xD (Without the graphics card, which is the confusing part because I can't get drivers for a card that I don't have :P )
