    Its the Radeon one it objects to, so I think all will work, just wont be able to take advantage of best performance (ie gaming)

    Hoping this is just a driver update for 10
    My laptop has dual graphics, AMD Radeon HD 7660G + 7670M. It shows Your Good to go for me? Hardware, 0 issues found.

    On a side note, upon opening the "Get Windows 10" today, it's asking for an e-mail address? If I want e-mail notification, with a skip option? First time I've seen that.
    That's blown all my theories out

    What driver do you have for the Radeon 7670M
    Mine is
    13.250.31.0
    09/12/2013 (9th Dec 2013)

    I did have the Dell driver previously, but AMD site says the one MS provide via windows update will be fine, this is what WU gave me (updated it yesterday)
    My laptop is currently running Windows 8.1 with the default driver installed via Windows update. CCC shows version 13.251.9001.1001.....etc. I haven't had any luck with Windows 10 though as far as graphics drivers go. I get almost constant ccc has stopped working popups. Couldn't get my USB monitor to work either so I went back to 8.1.

    Thanks, think I will leave this alone for now and look for better drivers when I upgrade to 10

    CCC still shows me as using dell drivers, even though I updated them yesterday to the ones from MS

    When I first got my Laptop and updated drivers, got all sorts of CCC problems, so not touched video drivers since (except yesterday afternoon), no issues on 8.1 at the moment so going to leave alone for now

    When I upgraded to 8.1 from 8.0 l would usually go right to AMD for my laptops graphics drivers. My laptops dual graphics are AMD/AMD so I can do that and not have any issues. With mismatched sets like Intel/NVidia your likely better off getting the custom driver from the laptop manufacturer. Otherwise your switchable graphics may not work. Lately, my graphics driver gets updated right after I do a clean install. I see the screen flicker and hear the new device detected beeps. It works fine in 8.1 so I just go with that driver. I haven't bothered to check if the driver on the AMD site is newer that what windows installs.

    One thing I've noticed since the Get Windows icon is there(doesn't bother me)---That GDMF'nSoB Input Indicator keeps coming back, again & again & again.... I hate that thing, always have and always will.

    That's the one single thing I dislike on Windows 8.1. The Input Indicator has a life of it's own, and pops up every once in awhile, usually after an Explorer restart. But now since the Get Windows icon is there, every boot, and sporadically during use. It has even changed my keyboard from German to English once, and I have deleted all other keyboard choices. I hate it-I hate it- I hate it.

    I agree too Windows 10 icon does not bother me for now till July, why they tell you can be removed this way when it can not.
    Sure i can kill the process in task manager while using the PC, but it does come back on restart or cold boot.

    Today finally received a new report.
    I have no problems anymore with my AMD graphics. I only need to update my language packages.
