    Windows 8, maybe?


    So has anyone with a 7690M XT tried SP58815?

    If it says it supports your card (and it seems it does), give it a go!

    Worse case is that it will have minor issues and you will have to remove them using Treexy Driver Fusion (see instructions here).

    If it DOES NOT support your card, it WILL NOT even install!

    That's the spirit!

    Remember, this is just 1 of 4 possible options listed under [* DRIVER UPDATE *] in the first post.

    I'll be interested to hear your results (or help with any issues - HOODY, take note ).

    Smirks, ROF, I'm glad I got you lookin out for me on this matter now

    But its weird that even some WITH that same GPU are reporting different results, so who knows, for now I'm stickin with W7 for at least another month. I'm trying to find out if I can remove this tools partition so I can re partition my C, HP has this weirdo 4 parrtition thing. I'm thinkin about just going duel boot, but just thinkin lol.

    Besides it looks like AMD is kinda/sorta ccomming along on this Enduro driver thing, so maybe in another month Leshcat can have better stuff to work with, as long as Intel coperates.

    Win 8 Pro RTM Build 9200


    Hi,

    I have a Lenovo g570 with intel hd graphics 3000 + ati mobility radeon 6370m hd. Win 8 Pro RTM Build 9200 recognizes ati as 'ati radeon hd 6300m series' but says

    'Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)'

    I've removed all drivers with treexy. System reboot itself and resolution decreased. Then run Catalyst 12.10 WHQL UnifL Installer, installed DSE then reboot and installed certs. Then I click next, selected intel's older version (8.something) which was saying that its for gen1/2 and older laptops. Then moved on, ati catalyst setup started, in the middle, when screen was blacking (drivers were setting up) screen went black, then back again. Then again went black, and boom=restart. I've tried again but its not working, its rebooting in the middle of the setup progress. Luckily windows itself set intel hd 3000 graphics again.

    PS: In bios, no fixed switchable graphics avaliable. Just UMS and Switchable can be chosen, ums deactivates ati completely.

    Seems like you are trying Leshcat UnifL. If so, the best help would be to submit a ticket there following the instructions after the link.

    Be sure to download the ChatNoir Info application (download on link above) to include driver details with your ticket.

    Hi fellows!

    I have a Sony Vaio with a switchable Radeon HD 7570M and Intel HD 3000 graphics card. Is it possible that Sony's W7-drivers will work for me in W8? Sony : SVE14A1S1EB uppdateringar | Ladda ner uppdateringar för SVE14A1S1EB

    I've found Windows 8 drivers for Radeon HD 7570M and Intel HD 4000 - will that work for me in W8?
    Thanks for reply!

    This is my HP notebook configuration: Intel 3000 (ok) and AMD Radeon HD 6490M
    So these drivers are not compatible with my video cards (I've already tried). Are there any driver compatible with mine?
