No option for scaling with ATI catalyst control center

Q: No option for scaling with ATI catalyst control center

I just got rid of Win8 and installed Win7 Ult on my HP H1818 pc. I can open up the vision Engine Control Center, but have no options to scale my display.
The video card is an AMD 6450. I have tried the 13.8 and the non beta driver.
It was there in Win 8. I use this PC as a media center and it is hooked up to my Samsung led TV. The overscan is killing me, I cant see the egdes of the screen to max/min windows. ETC.

I have completely uninstalled all AMD graphic driver and Catalyst Control Center and reinstalled with the same results.
The computer is hooked up with HDMI to receiver to TV input. THis worked fine with Win8.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

I had installed AMD ATI driver version 14.4., which worked just fine, but when I saw a new version of 14.9. I decided to install it, and the problems started.
When I wanted to install 14.9. there was no other option to install but just AMD Catalyst Install Manager.
I decided to install 14.4. version back, but this time in 14.4. version were no other options than AMD Catalyst Install Manager aswell.
I tried everything! I unistalled completly AMD drivers, completly unistalled Intel drivers, did several times everything, and because nothing worked, I reinstalled windows thinking this has to solve all problems.
But nothing was solved. I still have problems AMD ATI driver (no matter which version) shows me just AMD Catalyst Install Manager option to install.
Any advice?

I have read quite a few threads talking about this both here and elsewhere and none of them seem to give me any advice that both applies to my specific situation and resolves the issue.

I am using an XFX 5770 card with a dual monitor setup and would like to be able to run theater mode l did in the past on my old system with a 4650 card (XP installed on the old system).

The two monitors are the same that I used on the old system when the theater mode worked as are the cables (HDMI to a 52" Samsung and DVI adaptor to VGA cable for a small regular monitor). Since the cabling and the monitors are the same as they had been when it was working on the other system I ruled them out the cause of the trouble.

I have tried the 10.6 and 10.5 CCC versions and nothing seems to work.

Here is a screen grab of what the CCC looks like for me without the theater mode option:

Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

When I got this laptop I had Catalyst Control Center when I right clicked the desktop, but when I installed a new driver it changed to AMD VISION Control Center. I didn't really notice anything different other than that.

Is it suppose to change like that, did I download the wrong one or have the wrong one in the start? I did the automatic scan and manually put the information in but they gave the same results.

A:AMD VISION Control Center / Catalyst Control Center = Same Thing?

That's their new name for CCC. They probably had to change it because CCC was associated with ATI.

Decided to update my GPU driver ATI mobility radeon 550v ( version 8.692 ) and the ATI CCC 10.1 to the latest 11.2 and the GPU driver. GPU driver can be installed and uninstalled with no prob... the prob was with the ATI CCC 10.1 . Did not uninstall this and went str8 to the new installation update. GPU driver updated succcessfully but the ATI CCC was without 3D options and others etc. Left with Display Center and Power Supply option. Nth else was there... did the uninstalling from the ATI CCC installer but was not successful. "No Files were detected for the removal"

Did the Control Panel thing and was not successful. Click on Uninstall/Change mouse showed loading icon after that nth happens, Run CCleaner in safe mode and still the same issue. Unable to remove it with CCleaner nor CTRL Panel nor CCC installer. Did try to manually delete files and folders for ATI Technologies on C:Programs Filex86/ATI Technologies. Prompted " ...program being used by another person or program..."

begin another test, install the same 10.1 CCC downloaded from ATI official site so that i can uninstall it again, nothing appears to be installed in that folder. it was like blank installation. No error message... installation log all were successful. Tried to uninstall after that .. no can do... had been trying for 2 days.. really appreciate some help here.

I have a new Toshiba that came preloaded with a lot of stuff that I will never use.

The Catalyst Control Center is one of them. I tried uninstalling it using the built in uninstall program and during the uninstall it apperared that my pc went into safe mode without a restart. Is that possible?

After the uninstall and the required reboot it still looked like I was in safe mode-enlarged icons and kind of fuzzy. I probably should have just shutdown and restarted but did a system restore and everything came back to normal.

Just wondering if I should try again with a shutdown and restart after uninstall as I can't see me ever using this program.

From what I can understand it gives me a greater control of the graphics end of my pc.

A:Catalyst Control Center

Uninstalling the Catalyst Control Center probably uninstalled the video drivers. If the uninstall doesn't have an options section to allow you to specify which components to uninstall (Usually given a choice of Express or Custom (Un)Install), you'll need to re-install just the video drivers after uninstalling the Catalyst Control Center. If the Toshiba web site doesn't have a download for just the drivers without the Catalyst Control Center, you should be able to get the driver from the ATI web site.

A:? About Catalyst Control Center

I don't use the control centre. Load everything except that & don't miss it at all. As long as the driver is installed you should be alright. If your system is booting OK now & you don't use the CC then leave it uninstalled. Easiest way.

CCC got installed along with your nVidia video driver, but it doesn't have to be running as a startup.
If you wish, you can reinstall it. If not, you can simply disable it as a startup and the error shouldn't be bothering you anymore.

However, since your computer got infected, I suggest, you create new topic in "Am I Infected?" forum, since using system restore will NOT remove any infection.

I managed to install CCC, but I can't open it. I'm trying to enable crossfire on my cards, but when I click the tile (or click teh option in the right-click shell), it acts like it's going to do something, then nothing happens.

I had the same issue the first time I installed latest CCC on DP, tried to access it and it appeared to not be loading. I just waited awhile and it loaded, and now each time I access CCC it loads pretty much instantly.

Hello everyone. I upgrayded my old video card (ATI) to an Nvidia 9800GTX/9800GTX+. I installed new drivers. Now, when I start my pc, I get a message pop-up saying "your video card is not supported by the Catalyst Control Center." Can I safely remove CCC from the "add or remove programs" in the control panel? I read in a past thread that doing this crashed someone's hard drive. I just upgrayded my hard drive as well, so crashing it would make me cry at this point. Any help would be great, thank you.

However when I try to install the control center driver i get a "not winlogin verified" error. I'm not sure whats stopping it from installing cause at ati it said it was windows xp compatible any reason for this.

A:catalyst control center

ATI Catalyst 10.2 is the most current version listed for the ATI Radeon 9550.

If I remember correctly though, version 6.5 is the highest version that will install for Windows XP and for that video card.

You also need to have Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 or newer installed in order to install ATI drivers.

What is the model # of your video card?
Go to Start/Run and type appwiz.cpl and press enter. In the Add Remove Programs, find CCC and Uninstall it, restart the computer. If you have a driver CD, put that in and reinstall it
or Go to the AMD drivers site Download Drivers have it detect your card or manually search for your card and download the latest driver. If your card is several years old, download the Legacy driver. BTW, you do not need to download the whole CCC suite, you just need the video driver.

Ok, I bought my computer (HP DV7 2043cl) with a Raedon HD 4650, and CCC was running when I got it. I was deployed to afghanistan and when I got back had a failing HDD, so I replaced it with 1 TB western digital.

I thought I installed all the correct drivers, but upon getting a bsod, realized this wasnt the case...

then I noticed the ATI CCC wont open up properly. looked online for hours, with different directions all leading to no anvil. using driver sweeper, and rebooting into safemode, uninstalling and reinstalling the manager. everytime I try and open it up, it says "Catalyst Pro COntrol Center cannot be started. There are currently no settings that can be configured using CPCC"


I dont think I will ever buy another product with ATI/AMD ever again as I have spent way too much time messing with this.

I downloaded a driver for my Radeon HD 4800 on my 64 bit Win7 Optiplex 745 computer to run a program. after downloading it, the program ran slowly, so I decided to get the CCC and overdrive my graphics card. I don't know what the CCC did, (I was unsuccesful at overdriving) but now my computer does a heat-shutdown, where the screen turns black or a pattern of colors, and becomes unresponsive. it has nothing to do with overheating, and even though I did a system restore for getting rid of the CCC because it would die berfore I couldn uninstall didn't help.

So now, I have an over-sensitive Graphics card, and a broken computer. Any help would be nice.


A:Catalyst Control Center Sabotage

Did you use the auto-tune function? At best it's useless, at worst it's dangerous. I had a play with it and it and pushed my core GPU clock from to 625mhz to 755mhz which it considered 'safe'

Your best bet would be to boot into safe mode, uninstall the drivers from within device manager and then run driversweeper to clean all ATI entries/drivers. Driversweeper must be 'run as admin'

Well, I'm a very basic computer user who accidentally removed ATI Catalyst Control Center from my Windows Vista. I think I manage to reinstall it but when I turned the computer on again the screen looked different. The letters are smaller, everything on the screen is more "grainy" and the whole screen seems more strechted than before. It's not so "eye-friendly" to look at anyomre. I've tried changing some things on the control panel but I'm not quite sure if this is something I should change on the computer itself or in the ATI program. I have a basic computer, on the ATI it says I have a "basic VGA-screencard" and then on "set desktop area to" it says 1024 x 768. I don't know if this has anything to do with my problem. Can anyone help me - does anybody understand my problem? Do I need to reinstall something online or is it just some simple maneuver I don't know about? I hope someone can help a computer-rookie like me!

Have a new HP PC with a Radeon HD 4650 Graphics card.

Not sure what kind of on board memory my Radeon Card came with

Had all sorts of error msg's concerning Windows Explorer needing to shut down, with Windows7 re-fixing itself, and then working for another hour or so, when the error msg's would start again.

The only thing I could correlate it with was my attempts to download the ATI/AMD
Catalyst Control Center. I could not do the install, as it would not install.
Some of it may have, though ?

And, like most stories like this, I probably changed other things also in trying to find the cause of the Windows Explorer needing to shut down messages, so am not 100% sure it was due to the ATI Catalyst Control Center or not.

But, I did remove every trace of it I could find, and things seem to be happy now.

Still, I would like to use it.

Was wondering about any experiences you folks have had with the ATI Catalyst Control Center ? Works for you, problems installing or using, caveats, experiences, etc. ?

Thanks, and Happy Holidays,

My video card is a lowly ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT, nothing fancy but suits my needs perfectly well. I don't play games on this PC, it functions as a multi-track audio recorder + Audio mastering and CD/DVD burner.

Do I have anything to gain using the CCC?

It will only install the Catalyst Install Manager. I tried installing with the indivdual device drivers and control center separately, with the same result.

When I try to install and choose the "custom" option, it presents a list of "component selection". The only things in the list are:

Catalyst Control Center affects more than just games, but you do not need CCC installed. You can just use the display driver.

Drivers & Support | GAME.AMD.COM

* Select Display Driver Only

To uninstall CCC (and the video driver) go to add/remove programs and uninstall "ATI Catalyst Install manger".

Once removed (it may require a reboot) simply install the display drivers only.

So I wanted to install newest version of catalyst control center and it would install it but nothing would change. I formatted my laptop and still it wont install the newest version of ccc. I downloaded a driver from toshibas site it would install that but it seems like an old version (2010.0315.1050.17562).

This are my computers specs: windows 7, 6 gig dd3 ram, Intel core-i5-430m 2.260 MHz, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650

How can I get rid of this message:The Catalyst Control Center is not supported by the driver version of your enabled graphics adapter. Please update your AMD graphics driver, or enable your AMD adapter using the displays manager.

A:Catalyst Control Center is not supported

You can either uninstall CCC or update your video card drivers (if available) to a version that works with CCC.

I have tried several times to install AMD Catalyst Control Center on my HP Probook 4540s. I could not do it.Installer starts to install the CCC, but it suddenly stops and says the installing has finished successfully. When I check the log file, there is not any warning or error messages in it. I googled this problem. There are some solutions on this site and others. They say these are useful to solve the problem. But these solutions could not solve my problem.For example, I uninstalled all graphic drivers and tried to reinstall these in the given order.  Again, CCC could not be installed. It seems to be but it did not.It is getting really annoying, because the games and other programs which use GPU (OpenCL etc.) can not detect AMD video card.Please help me to solve it, I will be very grateful. Thanks!
