Pavillion DV7-1240us AMD Video drivers update 8.632.3.0 destroys my catalyst center.

Pavillion DV7-1240us AMD Video drivers update 8.632.3.0 destroys my catalyst center.

 

  • Running Vista 64bit.
  • Just reformated and reset to factory default.
  • Tryed a bios flash.
  • Tryed uninstalling older drivers first.
  • Tryed installing older updates, they do the same thing.

The only drivers that seem to work are the original. I would like to update the drivers so that I can get the full capabilities of direct x9.1. Please advise as to what else I may try, thank you.

Re: Pavillion DV7-1240us AMD Video drivers update 8.632.3.0 destroys my catalyst center.

Does HP provide any type of community service help at all? Or is this just one of the questions that there is no answer for... Should I call customer support?

Re: Pavillion DV7-1240us AMD Video drivers update 8.632.3.0 destroys my catalyst center.

Okay, so AMD finally has done something about integrated video card drivers from HP.

 

Here's the link: http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/Pages/radeonmob_win7-64.aspx <- For Vista 64bit

 

This still doesn't change the fact that HP forums are useless. Their customer service is always from another country. Unlike other laptop providers HP always wants the laptop back before they can help you with any problems, I'm guessing they have trust issues, and that is more important than your work, and your computers current information. I suggest you do not buy HP.

Re: Pavillion DV7-1240us AMD Video drivers update 8.632.3.0 destroys my catalyst center.

Is this the same driver for my Windows 7 64bit HP Pavilion dv7 1240?  My ATI Radeon graphics card crashed when I was exiting a graphics heavy game saying that it had "restored" the driver, but I've been getting a lot of latency.  My hp laptop heats up horribly and now can't operate with windows open at the same time that FRAPS is open, or windows and Adobe Premiere Pro... and the laptop is hardly older than a year and a half. I would warn anyone away from the Pavilion. But I do want to download the driver.  I need to.
