    Also to set an Video Driver to that OS it were designed for, help in many occasions! That applies for all kind of drivers too!

    Did you happen to try installing the drivers in Windows 7, or 8 compatibility mode?
    Sometimes it works, sometimes it don't, but worth a try.

    It happened with me that i installed windows 8 amd 8700 drivers in my cousin's laptop which was running on windows 8.1 so in result its display went away and i had to re install the windows again and all software as well and if u wanted to try something new make sure to create a complete system restore in order to prevent data lost and time loss as well

    I30,
    Thankfully I have never had that happen - point well taken though - thanks.
    I keep at least 6 images of my drive so I am never more than 20 minutes away from a complete restore.
    Backup - backup - backup - ;)

    I had it to work on my previous OS which was Windows 7 x64

    And if we mention Backup, here is what happen to me:

    After all that driver installation i decided to make a "System Restore" and the results was: Windows came up but dont get into the desktop anymore.

    Thankfully i have made a backup this morning, and it was before everything installed. I think i have learned somthing from the past :rolleyes:
