    Anyone here running an Envy 13? Doesn't seem to work all the latest and greatest, unfortunately.

    Anyone know idle and load temps for the 14 - 1xxx series?
    Im running 55-57C idle; 78-81C under load. This just seems suspiciously high.
    and I think it might be causing my NBA 2k12 and Batman Arkham City to crash the video drivers.
    oh and here are the lasst few entries from GPU-Z before the crash. (screen goes dead, pc needs a hard reset)

    anyone had these symptoms before?

    Update.
    Temps are fine now 40ish idle, and things are going great. Except Skyrim is now acting up. I dont get why a year ago, all my games played perfectly fine on a brand new install, now everything has changed. The drivers "become unresponsive and stop working" while im playing on my bigscreen

    My temps were high like that too, and I opened my Envy and cleaned out the fan. Then temps went down a lot for me.

    Hi

    Just got my Envy 14-2099en today has intel HD 3000 & AMD 6630 (8.830.6.2000)

    I just want to confirm that i can download the latest "12.4" and install the driver directly over my stock HP driver and everything should work fine ?

    Or should i first uninstall the stock driver or install drivers incrementally e.g. 11.2 11.8 and then 12.4 ?

    Please let me know ASAP.

    Thanx Mate !

    First I must share this feeling of accomplishment that I have finally found such an informing thread on an issue that I have believed I have had since owning this first gen envy 14, which is the inability to update my graphics card drivers, causing less than decent performance in all the games I have really ever played. So, now that I am fully updated to 12.4 after multiple driver installations, it even feels like my computer is running smoother(though I am most likely just very happy). I want to shout out to ironman as well as all the other people for their comments which helped me figure this out. I will be recommending this thread to any other envy owner with the same problem.

    A few others questions...
    1) Is 12.4 the last and latest update for the envy ati graphics? Will this thread continue to be updated with the latest drivers if more are to come? If I were to look on the ati website for updates, just in case, I would be able to directly use the drivers for the 5650? Also, what is the purpose of the preview drivers?
    2)Has anyone overclocked their gpu using the tool in the OP? Thoughts?

    EDIT: latest release is 12.6 (http://www2.ati.com/DRIVERS/mobile/12-6_mobility_vista_win7_64_dd_ccc.exe)
    Hello and Im glad that you've finally settled up with your envy, now, the 12.6 are the latest official release of AMD drivers.

    Right now there is the 12.7 Official beta(AMD Catalyst ™ 12.7 Beta Driver) and you can download those and install them, Im using 12.6 beta right now. You cant download them directly from amd because it wont let you install.

    Overclocking is not recommended for envy 14 since overheating issues, and the max you overclock will give you 3-4 fps max.

    How does one know to install the 1st or 2nd gen stock drivers? Does it have something to do with the type of envy you have?

    Not sure if this is a problem or not but I recently updated to 12.6 but when I went to device manager to check my version it says my version is 8.980.0.0. Did the update not install properly or am I not looking in the correct spot to see the version of my driver?
