    Catalyst Control Center missing options


    Hey, so trying to play need for speed, the game had black corners around it, it wasn't in full screen, so i decided to go to CCC and tried messing around with it's settings perhaps i could get the Full screen back and noticed that i had so many options/settings missing in it, like it wasn't as same as it was in windows 7, below is screen shots of it and my driver, and if anyone experienced that before and got a solution, please pass it to me, i also tried uninstalling it and the AMD RADEON 6300M Driver and cleaning the AMD reg files and re-installing it but nothing seems to work.

    Bean in the same boat with a 3850 video card, although on a desktop. Had to find "amd_catalyst_12.6_legacy_win8" drivers and those were to only ones with which CCC would work with it's full options. I gather you have a laptop there, see if the its manufacturer hase something more compatible. For your information, I too have to run Need for Speed in a window with black frame but don't think CCC has anything to set for this case. Resolution and screen refresh on the NfS is just to low.

    You have Intel/AMD hybrid graphics, and I don't believe the drivers from AMD will work with your PC. I think you have to get the drivers from the laptop manufacturer. IF they have nothing new, then you're stuck.

    "Intel/AMD hybrid graphics" ???????

    It's a CPU that has the GPU built on to it, meaning it has switchable graphics. You can see that from the specs listed from the OP. AMD calls them an APU. Not sure if Intel has a name for theirs. When the CPU is not under a graphical load it just uses the built in GPU (basic graphics) but under a high GPU load like a game, it is suppose to switch to the AMD M GPU.

    Sorry, for a sec I thought that you meant that AMD and Intel got something going together. You are right AMD APU "A-xxxx" series processors ( FM1 and FM2 sockets) have graphics integrated with the processor in the same package. That is to replace graphic processor integrated in the chip-set. They do run all the time together except when you insert a discrete GPU and in some cases they can run together. Still, they have to have appropriate drivers and if at all possible should be from MB/laptop manufacturer.

    You may have already done this. Click on preferences and check advance. Then click on scaling options.

Catalyst Control Center in Graphic Cards
I installed the newest version because my card (5770) is doing that auto-scaling thing they like to do, leaving black bars along all borders. It's easy to fix by just adjusting it in CCC, but when I open CCC there are no available settings for displays. Any idea what's up?
