    I did uninstall the "Chipset", and not the "Display", by mistake.

    Are these the latest?

    LOL, in my case i am a newcomer to high end cards, but i really like my 7970M, its like it has a mind of his own. Its a challenge sometimes and i appreciate that because i have learned lots because of it. Besides i will always support the underdog (AMD) because i really dont want one monopolic company taking over the graphic market.

    ROFLMAO..... your girlfriend.... jajajajajaj

    Well, I reinstalled windows and then set up the drivers like I would have from the disc only I used the new Intel and AMD drivers in the place of the stock ones. I had a couple of BSOD's and then it booted fine. Playing BF3 multi has improved a lot. So has BFBC2 which is nice.

    The chipset driver should be on the disc that came with the laptop. That would probably be your safest bet, as it was likely tweaked specifically for the laptop model.

    Custom install over stock, select only "Video Driver". Have fun.

    Sorry for digging this thread up but I am having problem with installing this 12.11 driver.

    I am using Windows 8 pro x64, and I have followed these steps from mysn to install the drivers:
    I managed to install these 2 drivers (Intel and AMD) without any BSOD and Windows 8 boots normally, I also have the CCC working well but the problem is that I cannot open the Switchable Graphics Menu, even though it exists in CCC. I tried to access it from the right-click on Desktop, from the CCC menu but nothing happened and it won't open up. Does anyone have the same problem and know how to fix it?

    Thank you.

    P6606 3DMarks with AMD Radeon HD 7970M(1x) and Intel Core i7-3610QM Processor. This was the 720p test. Not bad I thought...

    I uninstalled my old Intel drivers and installed this one as part of the whole process (AMD and then Intel). I had 1 BSOD the first boot up and weirdly it's been pretty stable since then.

    Anybody ever figure out how to get Warfighter working? I picked it up for 40% off only to find out it crashes immediately upon starting. Complete waste of 35 bucks so far.

    Mine works just fine. Didn't have to mess with anything. Game is garbage though so you wasted $35 even if it did work.

    If my comp is getting built (officially in production) do I need to install the new update or should the driver already be updated?

    You'd probably need to install them yourself. These are beta drivers. You can always ask your reseller for the official answer though.

    Anyone try the new 12.11 beta 7 drivers?

    AMD Catalyst

    I have all the .exe's set to run in compatibility mode with Windows Server 2008 SP1. It will crash on startup and during the cutscenes a few times still, but it works every once in a while. Sometimes it even works the first time. You have to keep loading the game until it eventually works.

    For those of you having issues with BSODs - I highy recommend a clean install.

    There are a few here touting that they have had no issues with these new drivers and I thought they were crazy or had something different they weren't sharing. I had to do a clean install due to some other issues and now these drivers work for me with no BSOD on stock clocks. I didnt do anything special - or even anything different then I did before. And my laptop wasnt very old so there really is no specific reason this should have fixed anything.

    Im not saying it will aways be the golden ticket but, I have to say - its done it for me for the last 72 hours.
