    AMD 6990 - Unable to install Driver - Driver Fail


    Hi there guys,

    Im trying to install the AMD drivers for my 6990 but having no joy. I am installing the latest drivers from the website. I have tried numerous times - unintalling - reinstalling with the same result - DRIVER FAIL. At the bottom of the installation report it says - driver install: the specified driver package was not installed for matching devices. I double checked I downloaded the correct drivers from the site. WDDM1.2 is fine in device manager. Anyone else had issues?? Any tips of getting the drivers installed??

    Thanks,

    Intel 3930K

    Godda use them Beta drivers. And if they still don't work run as administrator and in compatibility mode.

    EDIT: Found those drivers on another forum, seems like they work better then the official drivers.
