    Here's what I do

    Download and install driver sweeper

    Uninstall old driver and don't reboot

    Run driver sweeper and clean out amd display

    Reboot

    Install new driver

    Reboot

    Install latest cap

    Reboot



    Many say driver sweeper should be run under safemode but I'm just too lazy.


    And watch out for new amd drivers from amd which will result in bsod.

    Anything under 11.10 should be safe, not after.

    Dr gin ... the new dell driver is great for performance... but the 11.8 AMD drivers were the last to allow brightness control ...

    your call.

    Agree with Shaden. If you go with the new Dell AMD driver, grab the Dimscreen app that SOS4DELL told us about. You can download it here: LINK and that will give you back brightness control that the driver lacks.
