    OK, unfortunately, I don't see a bios update available for your specific Gigabyte ATI Radeon 4550 running at 600/800 and that also means (unfortunately) I am just out of ideas as well. At this point, I just don't know where else to look; however, if some other forum member has any new ideas, please chime in to help here. Sorry I couldn't help you javiergme. Good luck.

    One more thought. I just noticed that it looks like you are using the "microsoft version" of the AMD driver and, since it is not the latest available version, I would assume that you did not download the latest driver from AMD as I advised you to do. Moreover, that could explain why your OpenGL version is "clamped" at v1.1. So, if you have not already downloaded the latest driver, you'd better give it a try.

    I installed this:
    AMD Catalyst? Driver for the Radeon? HD 4000, HD 3000 and HD 2000 Series on Windows® 8

    I also noticed it appears Microsoft's version
    How can I change it if after installing the AMD driver is the same?

    That driver was last updated 9/2012. So, you didn't run the amd auto detect as I asked you to do; eh?

    And, BTW, those drivers were probably overwritten by an optional Windows Update if you have it configured to automatically download and install updated drivers. Here are the latest:

    Then I apologize for that mis-assumption but you are still on old drivers so try to update them. Good luck.

    YEP, that is telling you that you do not have the latest driver so just leave everything checked and continue the installation.
