    Completely uninstall your existing driver and try running the installer again after a reboot:

    Thanks my2cents...
    Look, I did it, I uninstalled the driver and the screen changed completely, so after rebooting, it automatically installed itself again.
    I have a question: When I right click to uninstall the drive, there is an option for removing all the software of the driver that appears unselected.. Should I select this option too? I don`t have the original driver of the video card.

    This is the screen after clicking the uninstall option and as you can see there is a a way to delete the software of the driver, just selecting the selectable option

    Yes, delete the software as well. Then try to install the latest Beta drive which should work for 8.1. BTW, that software box has nothing to do with your original driver which has been long gone for quite some time.

    AMD/ATI brands everything below 5XXX as "legacy". I suggest you try "amd_catalyst_13.4_legacy_beta_vista_win7_win8" driver, it solved my problems.

    I have an AMD HD 4290 and the LATEST AMD driver that I can get working with it is Catalyst 13.1. I've tried 13.4 and later and they won't work.

    Look, I really don`t know what is going on because I uninstalled the Microsoft's drive and the software, then I restarted my computer and after that and automatically, the driver installed "itself" again. So, I decided to disconnect from internet and repeat the procedure again. After restarting my computer, I installed the Catalyst and restarted again the computer. Finally, when it was up and running again (the computer), no new driver was installed and when I reconnected the computer to internet, the Microsoft's driver was back immediately. Is there any way just to add the driver's "inf" file?

    You can start driver setup and than stop it after it extracts it to default folder, probably C:/AMD, you can find .INF file in C:/AMD/ Packages / Drivers/ W8_inf folder.
