    Hi AnbooKarthik and welcome to Eightforums!

    You English is ok , I think I can understand your question. You are typing that you've tried installing the latest AMD Beta drivers and that you've gotten the "Installation complete" message after the installation.

    Well....in that case the installation was OK. So what is it that you expect to change?

    If you open the AMD configuration panel you can verify the drivernumber of the installed drivers. That should be 13.3 since you've installed the latest BETA. If it's not you can always try a deinstallation of the drivers, followed by an reboot and reinstallation of the BETA drivers.
    Since you are using a laptop there is also a change you have a Sony rebranded AMD chipset. In that case you cannot use the AMD drivers and must use the Sony rebranded AMD drivers. Check the Sony site to be sure!

    I myself am not using the BETA drivers. When I install them I'm experiencing bluescreens almost everyday. I've reverted back to the stable 13.1 drivers and they are working fine for me.

    So beware of the fact that these are BETA drivers and may cause problems for your pc.

    Greetz!

I am having hang playing dishonered while playing games like Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, NSF MW2 etc., (I experienced the same games in in good condition on Windows 7). that time I found the AMD driver update details. I tried to install the AMD Catalist installer Beta 13.. and the msg i got "Installation complete. Warning during installation. Click to view log" . Nothing change.. Any one knows the solution, pls reply for me.. Sorry for my poor English..

    Did you do a clean installation of Windows 8 or did you upgrade your Windows 7 without a clean installation?

    In the latter case you might try the following:
    • Make sure you have downloaded the Windows 8 drivers of your video, sound, motherboard etc.
    • Uninstall all the drivers, video, sound, motherboard etc.
    • Uninstall your GAME!
    • Restart the pc.
    • ReInstall the drivers like video, sound, motherboard etc.
    • ReInstall your GAME.


    That way you can be sure that everything is well configured during installation and finetuned for Windows 8.

    Good luck with it!
