GeneralDriver updates PinmvpProgramFOX8-Apr-14 0:39 
Two days ago, I wanted to update my graphics drivers because the Sleep function on my laptop wasn't working fine. Initally I thought it would be done very fast, but it wasn't. I have two graphics cards, an Intel and an AMD card, so I had to update two drivers. First I updated the Intel one, and that was fastly done. But then I saw in the Device Manager that my AMD driver was wiped from the system, probably because of the Intel update. So I couldn't update my AMD driver using the Device Manager. So I had to re-install it. This was a lot harder than I thought. First, I used the Auto-Detect tool to detect which driver would be the best for my computer and then install it. When trying to install the driver, I couldn't because of incompatible hardware or software. I saw that the Catalyst Control Center was still installed, so I tried to uninstall that because after searching, I found that it had to be removed before installing a new driver. Then I tried it again, but it could still not install. So I tried to install something else: the latest version of the Catalyst Display Driver, and that installed successfully. But it didn't instally a driver, only the Catalyst Install Manager. Thereupon, I installed the latest AMD beta driver. This installed successfully and the AMD driver appeared again in the Device Manager. Great!
Then I brought my computer in Sleep, to test whether it was working fine now. And it worked! But when I woke up my laptop, it suddenly restarted instead of waking up. Changing some configruations in the Power Options solved this problem, and then Sleeping and waking up worked fine. But I tried it a second time, and then, when waking up my laptop, the screen was continuously flickering, and I couldn't do very much, so I restarted my laptop. When doing that, I got a bluescreen, and I got the Startup Repair tool that fixed the problems. After several minutes, the tool was ready and I could log on. I was wondering how the tool fixed the problem and I went to the Device Manager. I saw that the tool removed the AMD driver to fix the problem, and that worked. I don't get bluescreens anymore, and I still can use my Intel driver. So all problems are fixed now? No, not all, there is just one problem remaining: my Intel driver does not support Sleep...
