Can't install Catalyst Control Center

by CHRHN - 3/20/13 7:21 AM

Hello. I have an HP Pavilion dv7-6059eo with Windows 7 64-bit. My GPU is a Radeon HD 6770M. I've had this problem for 2 months without being able to fix it, so help would be greatly appreciated.

I have had the AMD graphics drivers installed which I downloaded from the official HP driver site, but my programs and games often crashed because of my display driver restarting. I googled the problem, and I found out that some other people have had the problem as well, and that it could be because of outdated graphics drivers.

So I uninstalled the graphics drivers from HP and I downloaded the newer ones from the AMD website (I now know that this isn't the proper way to upgrade them) and it worked, but after a while I wanted to switch back to the HP drivers, because of some functions missing.

So I uninstalled the drivers from AMD and I downloaded the HP drivers for my product again, however this time the installer does not seem to be able to install the drivers at all. Right now I am using the intel GPU.

When I try to install the drivers, the only things that the installer wants to install are these:

And when it's done, it says "Installation complete (warnings occured during installation). View Log for details." But when I click "View Log" it doesn't show any errors:

And when I go to my install programs, the only new program that seems to have appeared is this:

I've tried removing ALL AMD drivers before installing but it still doesn't work. Thank you in advance.
