ATI drivers had mouse corruption errors since 2001. You have already discovered almost all the existing workarounds. You should contact their Support, and in the meantime keep on looking for driver updates. But I don't think that a 12-year problem has any hope of an early solution. Below is the complete list of workarounds that I was able to find : ...

I have been digging around this problem for two days, and found few types of solutions: Universal solution, software program PersistentWindows, which saves all windows position and monitors display. If the resolution is changed and changed back, then it restores the same sizes and positions! Exactly what I wanted. The latest version just does its work, and ...

You can use following URL to check if GPU acceleration is enabled for video decode in Chrome: chrome://gpu/ Graphics Feature Status Canvas: Hardware accelerated Compositing: Hardware accelerated on all pages and threaded 3D CSS: Hardware accelerated CSS Animation: Accelerated and threaded WebGL: Hardware accelerated WebGL ...

If you press Shift + Esc while in the browser it will bring up Google Chrome's internal Task Manager. If there is a process titled GPU Process, then that means Chrome is using hardware/GPU acceleration in order to display/render a particular page.

The overview on chrome://gpu/ is unreliable. If there's an error on initializing hardware acceleration, Chrome quietly falls back to software decoding despite it still saying "Hardware accelerated" on the GPU page. A better method is to open chrome://media-internals/ while playing a YouTube video. Then click the button that's captioned with 'blob' ...

Do I need a separate OpenGL installation/upgrade or has it to be included into my graphic card driver? Where can I get it? OpenGL can't be "upgraded", and it must be included with your graphics driver. OpenGL exposes GPU hardware capabilities to the operating system. If your GPU hardware were more capable, it could support later revisions of OpenGL on ...

I had this issue with my Radeon R9, all I did was to disable the GPU scalling at AMD Catalyst. But for some reason still occurs, first backup your registry! Then open your windows registry and go to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\GraphicsDrivers\Configuration Only under the "SIMULATED" or "NOEDID" keys (Windows 10), ...

I've tried everything to fix this, and recently i found out the best way to fix it (Which hasn't failed at all so far) is to move the mouse to the top right of my screen and shake it around a bit. I'm so relieved i found this solution, I use 3 external monitors 7970M graphics card and moving the mouse to the top right then shaking it around would make it ...

I ran into this problem on Windows 7 with an AMD card. I don't know what that key combination is supposed to do, but it seems to switch to 256 colors and 640x480 resolution. Correcting the resolution/bit depth To fix the problem, you need to return to normal resolution (and bit depth). You can do this with either the Windows "Screen Resolution" menu or in ...

The Radeon R5 230 is a rebranded Radeon HD 6450. They use the same underlying GPU and differ only by memory speed. The Radeon HD 6450 uses a TeraScale 2 (VLIW5) architecture "Caicos" GPU with 160 shader cores operating at 625 MHz. Memory is 512 MB to 1 GB of either DDR3 or GDDR5 at up to 900 MHz. Specifications: Wikipedia, AMD. The Radeon R5 230 has the ...

Install - regular install without removing old drivers/software. Clean Install - use in a situation like an upgrade from previous version. The clean install will remove the old drivers first and then install the new ones. This is akin to running a program like DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller) so that there will be no driver conflicts with your new drivers. ...

I solved the issue myself after a lot of testing. As it turns out, the Setup.exe that AMD gives you doesn't always actually install the graphics driver. It installs the Install Manager, CCC, and the HDMI Audio driver, but not the graphics drivers. Below I'll lay out the steps for solving this: Open the device manager and select your Graphics Card in the ...

You need to use the amdconfig tool that comes with the AMD Drivers. If you do amdconfig --help you'll get something like: AMD Overdrive (TM) options: The following options are used to get and set current and peak, core and memory clock information as well as read the current temperature of adapters. By using the "--adapter=" argument the AMD ...

You could also use ToastyX's awesome restart utilty. Inside the CRU zip file downloaded from the link above, you'll find two utilities named restart.exe and restart64.exe that can be used to restart the graphics drivers. Use restart64.exe if you're on a 64-bit version of Windows and the regular restart.exe otherwise.

If it was a proper value, your computer would have caught fire, I think. Notice: decimal 511 = binary 111111111. This may be a software bug or a sensor error. I mean: something didn't know what the reading had been, so it set its output to the maximum. Another possibility: the sensor output was internally correct but out of scope for your software. It's ...

It seems that Microsoft or AMD have decided to ship an "update" to the driver, which actually just ends up disabling it. Presumably this is due to its unsupported nature and in order to drive more sales to their newer product lines, despite the fact that the original card is still capable of perfect working order (wasteful, throw-away consumer culture, ...

The Radeon HD3000 series are too old to support modern GPU video decoding via DxVA. See here The 3000 series parts are either "UVD" or "UVD+". You need UVD2 or later to use GPU decoding feature of Chrome/Firefox/VLC/etc. You may still have 3d accelerated graphics, but your GPU does not have the hardware parts to run modern GPU decoding. Also, AMD has ...

This is an old card from 2003 build around the RV280 GPU.Searching on this GPU we find that it supports OpenGL 1.4. That means no hardware support for OpenGL 2.1. You either need a new card, or you need to emulate this in software. Emulating can work but will be very slow, making it a poor choice for gaming.

How do I identify which of a series my AMD graphics card is? AMD (neé ATI) seem to be a bit reticent to make the information readily available. However, they have a page on identifying which model of graphics card you might have: Provided that the graphics drivers are correctly installed and functioning, the model of the graphics card may be found using the ...

The first result on Google for AMD radeon HD 8600/8700M is this page: http://www.amd.com/en-gb/products/graphics/notebook/8700m-8800m It includes a link to a PDF document for full specifications for the entire 8000 series GPU. In said PDF, it gives you the following information: DisplayPort 1.2 Max resolution: 4096x2160 per display HBR2 support Multi-...

As far as i know Core 2 Duo CPU's do not have on-die GPU's, so disabling the only GPU your system has available to it will mean: No Video...A CPU is not designed generate the video output to your screen. By deactivating the GPU in Device Manager you're only deactivating the Driver, hence you still get Video Output at the (without a driver) possible ...

UPDATE: It seems for me that the new AMD beta drivers (version 14.6, downloadable here) fixes the problem. At least for me. I downloaded them one week ago when I still had mouse corruption issues with the older driver and now they're gone (For the first time since I bought this graphic card). I recommend everyone with an AMD card to check them out and see ...

Had the same problem and finally solved it. It has to do with overscaling, as @ChrisInEdmonton pointed out in the comments. You have to do the following: Open the Catalyst Control Center Display the My Digital Flat Panels menu. Click on Scaling options (Digital Flat Panel) Turn Scaling to 0% This will solve your issue.

You should have the open source driver installed by default. An easy way to check is lsmod | grep radeon radeon is the open source driver for AMD/ATI cards, the command above will check to see if it is loaded. The Fedora installation should have detected your card and installed the driver automatically. If that driver does everything you need, then fine....

This is because your XFX Radeon R9 280 Double Dissipation Edition video card only has one DVI-I connection. The other DVI connection is DVI-D and can't be adapted to VGA. Output - DL-DVI-I : 1 Output - HDMI : 1 Output - mini DP : 1 Output - SL-DVI-D : 1 However, you could use the Mini DisplayPort connection for VGA using an adapter like ...

This issue affects lots of AMD cards and drivers. The fix is as follows. Go to the registry editor (start > regedit) Change both of the following registries to 0 KMD_EnableBrightnessInterface2 MD_EnableBrightnesslf2 The registry path can vary slightly, but it will be one of the following or something similar. To find they key, I did a search through ...
