    Hello, I'm currently using Windows 7 RTM (16385) and when I install the new catalyst drivers 9.6 or 9.7,9.8 I get the following error: per example if you try to reproduce a mpg file in Windows Media Player 12, my mouse get stucked for a few seconds, and with Media Center using TDT (digital TV) sometime the images looks weirds... but using catalyst drivers 8.6 all is working fine... Btw I'm using XFX 4890

    suggestion:

    install only the driver package , then find a copy of Powerstrip 3.85 build 645 and install- now you have full control of your graphic card without the bloated buggy Catalyst Control Centre.

    no problems on Win 7 x64 - ATI 4850 /4870 on 3 computers.

    No problems here with 9.8 catalyst drivers and mobility radeon 4850.

    See if maybe you have a third party codec installed that's taking over the default codecs. It may not be compatible with win 7.

    This could especially happen if you installed software for a tuner card or capture card.

    Uninstall the driver via. Driver cleaner, it`a free program, then reinstall the latest catalyst suite - should work.

    Yes, I've uninstalled the "Catalyst Panel" and now my Radeon 4890 is working 100% fine with ati driver 9.8.

    I'm wondering if the "Catalyst Panel" is the cause of the trouble, or just a option in the Panel that is causing the issue ?

    Somebody know ?
