AMD Display Driver Failing to Install *SOLVED*  

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Just as title says. Been hyped for these new frame pacing drivers for a bit and finally downloaded them to install and this keeps happening. Now im getting pretty frustrated as I have tried almost everything (besides a fresh windows install) to get this to work and I just dont know what to do anymore; I even tried to roll back drivers to 13.4 and that didnt even work had the same problem. I dont know if this is part of the reason but every time I go to install drivers it takes a SUPER long time "try" to install the display drivers, it takes a good 10-15 mins says its installing then asks if I want to install it then takes another 10-15mins to skip the step I assume and finish the rest just to tell me it failed. Anyone have anything?...

I assume you've cleaned all the drivers already and attempted to install the new ones after?

Almost sounds like you might have a corrupted OS. Have you tried to run the repair from the installation disk? How are you un installing the old drivers? The official uninstaller or a driversweeper? I had a problem when i just updated using the driver uninstaller and then loading the new one up. Guess it didn't delete everything from the old drivers before trying to install the new set of drivers.

I really hope not, id have no idea how that would even happen with installing drivers. I have tried many ways to uninstall them, manual (uninstall CCC then go in and manually delete leftover crap), using Driver Fusion, and the official uninstall utility all leave the same thing. I have tried also going in and out of safe mode running as administrator also just letting my PC just sit for a while powered off to see if they did anything which doubt it would and didn't.

Go to start menu, run, gpedit.msc and go to computer, administrative tools, system, device installation and device installation restrictions.

Make sure "prevent device installation not described by other policy settings" is NOT set to enabled. This seems to stop the driver from installing.

OP I had the same problem when I had my 6770. Go to device manager there click on your graphics adapter and select update. Then click on browse the computer and not search automatically. Then choose the directory to where you have your drivers and install it. But this will install the driver but I'm not sure about CCC.

I tried that and it didn't work.

This driver keeps saying

amd display driver is already installed and up to date


Although its not. I havent been able to update since 13.4. Uninstalling my drivers don't work either. When I uninstall then try to install the 13.8 drivers, the Display drivers just don't show up in catalyst manager and they just don't install.

I think it's a Windows Vista compatibility issue, although AMD says it works with Vista. does anybody know how to fix this?

Can someone running Windows Vista 64bit confirm if they are/are not able to install the drivers?

I have had no end of problems with the 13.8 beta, causing sooo many errors within the .NET Framework even though I am running 4.5

I've also been unable to install--though I think for me it's CCC that isn't properly installing.

Edit: JK it's the driver that's failing to install. I've also had no end of trouble getting 13.x drivers to install on Windows 8. It doesn't help that the AMD uninstallation tool destroys your Win8 installation.

I've been uninstalling the Catalyst Installer thing, then using CCleaner to clear old registry entries (restarting between each step). I think driversweeper also breaks windows 8, or at least I've had bad experiences when I was fighting to get 13.6 to install.
