Do I need AMD's Chipset Drivers? - Page 3

post #21 of 27
couldn't you just install them through device manager? You just select the device you want to install/update the driver for, Browse your computer for drivers, and navigate to the catalyst folder where the drivers are. I've did it that way before, and it avoids having to put in the catalyst control centre, just the driver for your device(s). You do have to do them individually though. Oh and you do need to unpack the catalyst file, but then just cancel the installer.

Yep blue screen when all in one driver tries to install catalyst either way...before or after ..I installed the sata driver thru device manager....I will unpack it and try the driver seperate when I get home...hopefully it will work properly....it tries to install graphics part as well when it does instant blue screen shutdown with no time to read it...event viewer doesn't show it.....can you still set the setting to hold on critical stop to read blue screen like in Vista and xp?

Yup! Right click computer, properties, click advanced system settings on the left panel. Go into the advanced tab, clcik the third settings button (under the startup and recovery group), untick automatically restart. then click ok. it'll probably pop up for a restart. smile.gif

Good question and by reading the responses I gather that Chipset Drivers (CSD) should be updated just like Graphics Drivers when they are offered. I got an email from AMD today telling me that they have just released both (ver.14.4) I've never had luck with the AMD Catalyst Install manager getting all the files and registry out and in the past have manually taken everything out to get CCC working on the desktop again...what a pain that is as we all know.

Getting back to the Chipset thing so if I am reading this correctly do those updates first, then the newer gpu driver, after reboots in between of course. Now I see where folks have stated to go into Device manager and look for those yellow or grey flags. Do they have to be present to install a new CSD driver or does the CSD upgrade more or less just be better all the way around like graphic updated drivers? In other words if it ain't broke don't fix it thinking applied here or go with newer stuff like we all do with gpu drivers?

Do a custom install and choose not to install catalyst control center but just the chipset driver.
