AMD Catalyst Control Center does not show settings?

    Hi, sorry to necro this thread but well it's not too old and I'm having a very related problem! I am getting only hydravision options.
    It's weird before this I did auto detect the graphic driver and I got the R7 200x series displaying on my device manager, then I realized that my graphics card was not that simple, it had a specific version which is the ASUS DirectCU II OC Radeon R7 260x.
    I did that search on google and was brought to this webpage: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download R7260X-DC2OC-2GD5

    I installed that display uninstaller posted on this thread and I ran it, restarted the PC and installed that new driver because I've been having random BF4 crashes, so I thought that would maybe help... Before I did this change of driver I did have all CCC options, at least what I think was all of them, I was able to change fan speeds. But little research did show that my fan is 1 of the many versions that only had 2 fans. (most of them had 1 fan at least, the 260x's)

    Now I'm just stuck here, in my AMD folder i only have a folder called 'amdkmpfd' with many 'amdkmpfd.etc' files 'etc' meaning many file extensions (.cbz, .cez, .csz, etc!)

    Before changing drivers I did have many more folders and files in the AMD folder.

    I've tried looking up so many ways to fix this and I just don't want to end up in a large hole I can't dig back up, so please help me!

    I'd like to mention that I received a BSOD containing the error message: bad_pool_caller

    It may be just a driver without proper control center and the oldish one too. Try with AMD's own driver, 14.4 for instance. Make a Restore point before you update.

    So since I had those files laying around, I extracted them as said and pointed the update files from Device Manager to the AMD folder which did now have everything.

    This is the odd part, the whole AMD CCC has a bit of a new control panel design to it than when i had just that installed before ever having uninstalled. (as in when i had THAT version installed without having installed the one from the ASUS website)

    Everything looks to be running fine except for 1 thing.
    When I opened up photoshop before installing the version from ASUS, photoshop tells me there's an error with my graphics driver so that I need to update/reinstall my driver. When I installed only the ASUS driver version it didn't give me an error. Now that I updated again I'm getting that error once again.
    Should I mention that in Device Manager it shows the name as 'AMD Radeon R7 200 Series' and when I had the ASUS driver version it showed up as something like almost the exact model i.e. 'AMD Radeon R7 260x'.

    Sorry to be a pain in the neck.

    Are there any negative consequences to Photoshop or there's only that warning ?.

    That warning.
    I'm having other problems with Battlefield 4. Sometimes ground objects within the playable area will glitch upwards like the meshes will just skyrocket and it disables me from viewing correctly. I also got other problems when I got into a BF4 game right now and green and red pixelish glows would just show up and flash around on 1 part of my screen, I messed around with vidoe settings and it fixed it.... But I'm still having trouble with those ground objects glitching on me. :/

    Can you get application settings or presets that are best for the game.for BF4 ? for Control center /games.

    Like the auto settings bf4 shows me? It puts the settings automatically to High. Sorry I think that's what you're asking... Or settings within CCC?

    Setting within CCC as you put it. Something like this:
    Download AMD Catalys - Forums - Battlelog / Battlefield 4

    From the look at all the posts on that thread I think it's just AMD that really sucks.
    That seems to be a beta driver, do I install that?

    Some games are better on some cards, you can see that by what kinds of games they give away with new cards. See if you can find best driver or even better, just the presets for it.
