    ATI Radeon 300 driver problem


    My ATI 3000 Driver (onboard graphics) was updated today 8/8/15 and it removed my ability to extend my displays. I was able to roll back the driver and now everything is ok. So when reviewing updates, the ATI driver was successfully installed. Is there a way to remove/uninstall that driver? The uninstall updates only pertains to program files, not drivers??

    Why not go to the ATI site and download a different diver and install it :) Download Drivers


    Funny I have the same Graphics and I haven't had that update yet

    My Radeon HD 3850 now stuck at 1024 X 768 after this update. Monitors are 1920 x 1080 and 1920 x 1200. - Slightly annoyed by this!

    Done the "Roll Back Driver" thing and all is OK now - until it reapplies the update for me.

    Have been to that site before previous to my post. Basically the Radeon 4000, 3000 and 2000 motherboard graphics is no longer supported and has been unsupported since oct 2003. There is the suite @ 147MB, which I tried and had no luck with. Why MS put this out in an update puzzles me, doubt that MS re-wrote it??? The original seems to work fine, wish W10 would allow me to hide this update link like you could in Win7.

    As mentioned before, at least in my case, viewing the updates/advanced does not show driver updates and therefore no way to uninstall unless I missed something.

    I've just checked my drivers for this and my last update by MS was 13/01/2015

    Go to device manager and check out the driver date. I did a update driver from there and it showed as being up to date.

    Mine has the same driver date Jan 13, 2015 with version 8.970.100.9001. Checking the "update driver" tab and searching for drivers it shows 5 instances of install on July 15, 2015....all the same version.

    Yes mine is version 8.970.100.9001 but it only shows installed in Jan. Odd that mine has not tried to update like yours

    Here's the link to the legacy drivers from AMD:
    Legacy


    Here's instructions how to install them:
    How to install Catalyst-legacy driver in Windows 8.1 AMD ATI HD - Microsoft Community

    - Install all components of the driver normally (Catalyst Control Center etc.)
    -> The graphics driver itself will fail - you need to install it manually using the Device Manager!

    - Open the Device Manager (right click on Start-Icon in left corner), go to "Graphics Card"
    - Right click on the card and select "Update driver..." from the context menu (first entry)
    - Click on "Search for a driver on the computer" (second entry)
    - Click "Select driver from list"
    - Click on the "Device..." button in the right corner
    - Select the driver file (*.inf) from the extracted ATI folder. In my case, this was C:\AMD\Support\13-1-legacy_vista_win7_win8_64_dd_ccc\Packages\Drivers\Display\W86A_INF.
    There are a few different files, it seems the dialog will choose the right one if you simple select one of them... TRY IT FIRST! Otherwise you could try to read the .inf files (they are just plain text files - maybe you'll find your chipset in there...
    - Click on OK, the dialog will now show one or two entries, which should have the name of your graphics card - select one of them
    - Click on Next - the screen(s) will go black and flicker, you will hear the device connection/disconnection sounds several times. Don't worry, everythings works as intended! :)
    - The driver should now be ready - restart your system, and you should now be able to control your graphics settings using the Catalyst Control Center.

    - Tip: Save this trick somewhere, it will save you lots of headaches the next time you need to install windows! I figured it out painfully at least twice! :)

    If I remember correctly, the driver version from AMD goes to 8.970.100.0 which is what worked for me and Radeon 4600. I now have full Catalyst Control Panel functionality on Windows 10.

    I had to REMOVE the Windows 10 "AMD Install Manager" first, though.

    Yeah I'm sure that's fine but I'm not having any problems so no need for me to do that. If it's not broken don't fix it
