Has anyone had a similar problem with the ATi cards?
I have a 5870 ATi card and downloaded the lastest 12.3 update and when I install it nothing works. If I open the internet browser I get a warning that video driver has failed and recovered but it loops into going to a black screen and everything is frozen. When I launch Shogun 2 i just goes to a black screen and I can only hear the sounds in the back.
Also, the Catalyst control center doesn't work even before I installed the latest drivers. I am currently using the driver that comes with the CD and everything works perfectly.

I had similar issues with the new drivers, I got BSOD everytime I booted up my PC, so I went and installed some old drivers but none of that worked, so I used driver sweeper and tried even older drivers but that did not work either, so I uninstalled the drivers then used driver sweeper and re-installed the new drivers and that worked, but my pc took longer to boot up because of "AML device install" everytime I booted up, so I disabled it from starting up in msconfig.
Never had this problem before, so my guess is the new drivers are buged somehow.
I have never had issue with ATi drivers before. I have had issues with nVidia once, but it was an easy fix. I usually recommend NOT updating your drivers unless you need to. They usually post the changes and if they don't effect you (the latest ATi ones seem to be for Crossfire setups), don't install them.
Cap is amd's way of releasing updates without bringing out a whole new driver release. It usually involves optimisation of the driver and specific games. It is available as a seperate download off the and downloads page.
On October 29th Tactical Gamer will join the rest of the gaming world for the launch of Battlefield 4. We've been going full bore behind the scenes here of late to be ready to go the moment BF4 goes...
