ATI Radeon HD 2400 Win 7 Legacy Driver CCC Installation Issues!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to build a little HTPC out of an old P4 with a Radeon HD 2400 PRO (AGP) - It's not much but I only intend to watch Netflix using the S-Video out on the GPU and play a few oldies with some emulators.

Anyway, I'm having trouble with the AMD legacy drivers for my card.

I did a fresh install of Win 7 32-bit and it installed a working driver for the card, but no CCC and I can't get the outputs on the card to work right using just the driver installed by Windows - the properties can't be saved under the resolution tab using the Microsoft installed drivers.

When I download the 13.1 legacy driver package and install it, I have no option to install the drivers or CCC. If I go ahead and install anyway, it keeps the same driver installed by Microsoft and never installs anything related to CCC - I don't have a menu option for it, it's not in startup, it's not under program files etc... I'm stumped!

I looked around on Google but couldn't find many suggestions. I tried uninstalling everything AMD-related. I rebooted into safe mode and ran driver sweeper (which I normally wouldn't use on my main PC but I figured I'd give it a shot for this application since it was what I kept reading to try on other sites) and then removed all AMD entries. I rebooted normally and reinstalled the recommended package for my GPU. I even used AMD's tool to make sure I was getting the right driver just in case this time. I still had no option to install CCC and when I installed anyway and rebooted, the same driver as was originally installed by Microsoft was still there and CCC was nowhere to be found.

I'm stumped.

[TLDR] Watch my quick YouTube video. thumb.gif

Watch in HD otherwise you won't be able to see much - and I'm sorry I couldn't find my tripod tongue.gif
Link to my (shaky) YouTube video which is easier to swallow than a wall of text.

Thanks for any help guys! smile.gif

what method are you using to uninstall all of ATI's software / drivers? are u using program uninstaller? or ATI's uninstaller from their standalone utility?

also after extracting the DL of the driver package your computers directory. try going to 13-1-legacy_vista_win7_win8_32_dd_ccc\Packages\Apps\CCC2\Utility\CCC-utility.msi

should be the standalone installer for CCC see if that works

I used a guide found here on OCN for manually/properly removing AMD GPU drivers. It had me first use the AMD uninstallers and then go through and manually delete some hidden folders as well as quite a few registry entries. It's the same method (more or less) that I always use when updating my Nividia drivers on my GTX 670 to avoid driver conflicts. It's quite thorough and I'm sure it's not missing anything. smile.gif

I'm going to take a look into this when I get home later on tonight and see if I can find that - I think you might be on to something. I tried browsing through the extracted directory to find just the CCC installer but there were so many different executables to choose from that I wasn't sure which to use so I just used the regular install manager like I normally would if I wasn't having any problems.

Thanks for the suggestions, I'll give it a shot and report back. thumb.gif
