Installing Your AMD Drivers:
(Steps 1-6 are concerned with finding and downloading the drivers, and are on the previous page.)
Step 7: You may receive a security warning dialog box or UAC warning, but go ahead and click the 'Run' or similar button. You can trust that the drivers downloaded from AMD's site are genuine.
Step 8: Select a temporary folder for the software to extract installation files to, then click 'Install'. Note that this is not the install directory, and can be deleted after the software is fully installed.
Step 9: After the installer has extracted, a new window should open showing the Catalyst Install Manager. Select your language and click 'Next'.
Step 10: Select 'Install' on the 'Select Installation Operation' window, if it appears.
Step 11: Select 'Express' on the 'Installer Welcome' screen, and type in your Preferred Install Location, if you wish to use it, then click 'Next'. Dismiss the message 'The folder does not exist', if it appears, by clicking 'Yes'. Advanced users can customize the installation by selecting 'Custom', but in the interests of simplicity, we will be using the 'Express' selection.
Step 12: The installer should begin installing your software. At points, the installer may appear to freeze, but do not be too quick to assume so. Sometimes the installer will freeze for up to five minutes, depending on the speed of your system. The screen may also flash or go blank during the installation of display drivers. This is usual for the installer -- don't worry, it hasn't broken your computer, however you might have to rearrange the icons on your desktop afterwards.
Step 13: Eventually, the installer should finish the installation process. Click 'Finish', and a page may load in your web browser asking to register your installation. This is not necessary, however you may register if you wish.
Step 14: If the installation was successful, you should see the AMD Vision icon in your system tray. Some features may be unavailable until you reboot your computer, and you can delete the temporary Catalyst installation folder at this point.
