    AMD Catalyst Control Center does not open (show settings)


    I plugged in my new videocard and installed the drivers, but I have a problem. AMD Catalyst Control Center will not open. It's really difficult because I can not do anything to set. I can not set the picture and make wider, so get on all four sides of the black screen (see picture) I must necessarily be in AMD Catalyst Control Center. I've removed the drivers and reinstalled, but I can unfortunately not get in AMD Catalyst Control Center (settings). Please help!

    Do you have the latest drivers? AMD Catalyst 14.7 Beta Driver for Windows

    Do you have all NET Frameworks from 2.0 to 4.5 installed and updated?

    What happens when you try to open CCC? Does it crash? Have you tried running it as an admin?

    @ TairikuOkami

    I have the latest driver (14-4-win7-Win8-win8.1-64-dd-ccc-WHQL) but not the beta (I've tried the beta, but the same problem) I don't know if I have installed and updated NET Frameworks from 2.0 to 4.5, where can I find or see?

    EDIT: I see I've NETFramework 4.5 already installed on my PC.

    Great, I made it finally. You really need to try removing everything of amd. I've looked at amd files through task management. Press properties and must refer to something windows: system 32, there is somewhere a few files from ati (amd) you need to remove all. Then reboot your PC and install all the drivers again. Then it must work. Thank you all for your help.

    Uninstall all ATI/AMD display drivers

    feel free to use a tool such as this for example

    Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU) 12.9.7.0

    Uninstall all of your frameworks ( this will take some time I know.. )

    and then install the graphic driver. It will probably try to install it's own framework version.

    @ loveandpower

    Thanks, it's working now. I downloaded display driver uninstaller and I will keep that save for another time.

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?
