Hi All

Windows 8 Pro 64bit
Upgrade OVer top Install over Windows 7 64bit--System Restore with Recovery discs--wanted as close of clean install as I could get then
prior to Installing WIndows 8 Pro 64bit

Issue is All settings almost missing from CCC Control Panel, 12.10 Drivers installed with 12.10 Cap1

Any ideas on solving besides a Full Windows 8 Clean install that will take a lot of time, Was thinking maybe disconnect from internet tomorrow, remove from add/remove programs or Programs and Features area, reboot to safe mode, driver fusion, restart in regular mode, reinstall ATI Drivers, reboot, reinstall Cap, and be done?

Advise needed

i'm gonna take a shot in the dark and say you have a "now" legacy amd card (aka 4xxx series and back)

amd only supports the the 5000 series and up for windows 8, you won't get the full control panel with anything older

hmm, yeah your card should definitely still be supported, not sure why you're only getting the options that legacy cards get on 8.

try installing the beta drivers and see if that helps http://www.neowin.ne...t-1211-beta-11/

could just be a bug in the 12.10 drivers maybe

you can try the 12.11 beta for ex, for legacy you can use http://forums.guru3d...ad.php?t=370567 but probably dont apply to you

try this, i always do this when installing new drivers if you dont have any problem using regedit

Have you rebooted the machine properly? Not the hybrib shutdown > boot but the actual restart option?

I had the same problem in 8 and rebooting fixed it

Rebooted PC, and totally reinstalled 12.10 drivers, using Driver fusion in safe mode, and fixed the issue--so that problem is taken care of. Eventually I may do a full clean install of Windows 8, instead of upgrade over top of Windows 7 64bit like I did before. But I may wait for Windows Blue 8.1 before I go that far

Thanks Everyone for the replies
