    And you have had any other issues with the card prior to trying to update drivers??

    Is it the AMD Catalyst 12.6 WHQL or the 12.7 Beta you are trying to use.

    Install the card fresh from the original CD. DO a full install. Restart. Then when updating to the new 12.6 version do a custom install and select only the drivers to update and see if that works.

    If I've helped at all please feel free to add Rep by clicking the little star

    Hey I had similar issues with my new vortex.

    I got the 12.6 drivers from here http://sites.amd.com/us/game/downloa...downloads.aspx

    Even though it says they are beta , I've been reliably informed they are now certificated. You can simply down load and run without the need to detect hardware and hence dont get the silly hardware not compatible error.

    I simply installed without deleting the old one and it worked very well. I didn't realize the need to really go to town deleting every last amd file as I'm used to nvidia who have a very good installer - I guess I got lucky !

    yeah I think thats what i ended up doing, I just installed them from scratch from the PCS cd then installed the 12.6 drivers only and kept CCC stock. Guess that will have to do for now yeah my old laptop had a nvidia card that never gave me any issues but I think the performance of the 7970m is totally worth it! btw pips333 did you install the new version of CCC too??

    Hey AJ.

    No have never had to use CCC. As I installed 12.6 without it and all seems ok - touch wood - I thought best leave it alone.

    But I think with any new driver installs its looking like a driver sweeper type utility is a good idea to remove every last bit of the old ones.
