    Re: Updating AMD/ATI cards, 'drivers only'.

    The last time I saw something similar it turned out to be the HD audio device on the video card for HDMI.

    Hmmm - interesting. I had not thought of that. Certainly makes sense and explains why there were two entries for the card. Is there anyway I can tell for sure? And does anyone have any suggestions as to what I should do about it?

    Many thanks

    Re: Updating AMD/ATI cards, 'drivers only'.

    Yes, pretty sure it's the sound part of the HD(MI) card. Try the install as before, if it fails, don't worry, use it for a while and see if there are any real issues that occur.

    It could be that a full CCC, warts and all install is the only way to clean up Device Manager.

    Re: Updating AMD/ATI cards, 'drivers only'.

    In the first instance, I have just tried Disabling it in Device Manager. Everything is running fine with it disabled and no wizard on reboot. So can I just leave it disabled for good now and move on?

    Many thanks - you guys are great!

    PS - I have disabled the ATI Hotkey Poller/ati2evxx.exe service as from what I can see that won't be needed for my install.

    Re: Updating AMD/ATI cards, 'drivers only'.

    Disabling it should be fine - but upsetting for the purists

    I've never used the hotkey switching either, the main reason I mentioned it was to alert you that it would be visible at some point - isn't there a similar .dll (atiacm64.dll here on W7x64, was loading from HKCR\CLSID\{5E2121EE-0300-11D4-8D3B-444553540000}) that loads onto the right-click on the Desktop too? Autoruns is the tool to disable that, if it installs on XP: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/.../bb963902.aspx

    I am not too sure what hotkey switching even is/what it allows you to do. But I'm thinking it might need CCC and if so it would not be relevant to me. Likewise the other .dll you mention. I think that might be a CCC thing. As it is now, no other services/processes are running. And I get nothing AMD related in the menu when I right click the desktop.

    Cheers

    Re: Updating AMD/ATI cards, 'drivers only'.

    Hotkey switching, as far as I recall, just sets a keyboard combo (like Ctrl+S) that allows you to toggle between monitors or screen resolutions - it might be an enabler for the right-click on the Desktop ATI menu as well - not sure that there's any documentation on it, probably a relic from Win9x/NT4.

    I'll put it on my list for testing when I'm bored or my Internet is down

    Re: Updating AMD/ATI cards, 'drivers only'.

    This drivers only procedure still applies to the new, non-CCC, Crimson AMD/ATI installer (Download Drivers).

    I use W7 still, the auto-detected driver package downloaded from AMD (Radeon-Crimson-15.11-Without-DOTNet45-Win7-64Bit - the name will vary) was executed and then cancelled after the initial file extraction, then point the Device Manager updater to C:\AMD\Radeon-Crimson-15.11-Without-DOTNet45-Win7-64Bit\Packages\Drivers\Display\W76A_INF

    On the games I tested all worked as normal, nothing unusual seen in Windows or other programs either.

    If you use HDMI, you're probably still stuck with having the use the full Crimson/CCC package install.

    So there might be a new driver available for my HD5450? Or is it only for newer GCs? I'll check when I get a mo, but if you know the answer off the top of your head and don't mind letting me know = great!

    I'm on XP still and followed the procedure and it worked fine with my HD5450 use the both ports (one of which is HDMI). Was I lucky? Or am I misunderstanding?

    Re: Updating AMD/ATI cards, 'drivers only'.

    Not running hotkey switching doesn't affect the Desktop ATI menu, it just enables a keyboard method of switching between display resolutions.

    No Crimson support for that 'relic', I'm afraid, the latest CCC might still support it but I very much doubt that it will improve anything.

    Sorry, I should have stated full HDMI (video + sound), video will work fine but the HDMI sound will, as far as I can tell, require a full CCC/Crimson package install.

    Re: Updating AMD/ATI cards, 'drivers only'.

    Correction: the release of AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition Beta Driver slipped by me, this will be the last driver package that supports the HD5xxx (though I very much doubt it would add anything to gaming performance) but it's not for Vista or older.

    Re: Updating AMD/ATI cards, 'drivers only'.

    Maybe time for an update on the Nvidia article, esp. as there's more bloat to avoid now?

    Same initial procedure, the folder to point (File) Explorer/DevMan at (Step #3 and #9) is:
    (W10 x64) C:\NVIDIA\DisplayDriver\*378.66*\Win10_64\International\Display.Driver
    (W7/8 x64) C:\NVIDIA\DisplayDriver\*382.05*\Win8_Win7_64\International\Display.Driver

    *_* Replace these numbers with those that correspond to your driver version.

    Non-English International driver versions and x86 drivers will also have a slightly different subfolder structure, modify to suit your own language version and OS 'bitness'.




    Sorry ATI fans, I no longer have an ATI build to test with, contributions are welcome.
