    Think these drivers might be bad. My secondary monitor has glitched up pretty badly twice since installing them, and when I tried to use my main monitor only, it started glitching too. Gonna go back to the 14.6 beta drivers.

    I don't have any problem with using my external 27" Samsung hooked to my laptop with these or any other driver so far. This 14.7 doesn't seem to be any different than 14.6 RC was.

    All I'm happy about at this point is I'm at least able to install the drives directly from AMD now, where before I was only able to use the old OEM driver from HP which is still dtd: 2011, So for that fact alone I'm happy. Every driver since 14.4 has installed and worked fine. I was about to can this Radeon system for a Gforce system, but now I'm OK with this one.

    The ones who usually have issues with newly released GPU drivers are those with multi-GPU or monitor setups. Key word being usually, but not always. I've never really had any major issues with GPU drivers myself but I've always ran s single card with a single monitor.

    Well, I rolled back to 14.6 RC and the glitching on the monitors seems to have disappeared. Kind of weird. Good to hear you aren't having any issues though, Hoody.

    RC= release candidate ie after beta before final

    WHQL= final, and MS certified.

    Yeah but this is per AMD

    • Starting with AMD Catalyst 14.6 Beta, AMD will no longer support Windows 8.0 (and the WDDM 1.2 driver)
    • Windows 8.0 users should upgrade (for free) to Windows 8.1 to take advantage of the new features found in the AMD Catalyst 14.7 RC driver
    • AMD Catalyst 14.4 will remain available for users who wish to remain on Windows 8
      • A future AMD Catalyst release will allow for the WDDM 1.1 (Windows 7 driver) to be installed under Windows 8.0 for those users unable to upgrade to Windows 8.1


    So unless you don't upgrade to W8.1.(1) and stay on W8 (and no more updates) 14.4 will be fine.

    There are several that work, I use Start Menu X Start Menu X

    IObit has one that looks like the old W7 IObit Start Menu 8 for Windows 8 Free download, Bring Windows 8 Start Menu back

    Start Menu reviver is a bit different, but still good, for those that like the metro apps too, and even has touch capability
    Start Menu Reviver

    (this is kinda off topic for this thread, but just fyi)
