Default Is there an official forum for post ATI driver bugs?

I've had the same problem with the last two versions of the Catalyst drivers (11.4 and 11.5). One of the games I play a lot of (King's Bounty) will not display any of the 3D portions of the game; I just get a black screen. I also had problems with GPU Tool flickering on 11.4 (I haven't bothered with it on 11.5 since I can't keep this version because of the King's Bounty issue). Neither of these problems occur with 11.3 or earlier.

I joined AMD's forum, but I can't find anywhere to post bugs. Does anyone know where this would be?

This looks like the place to start.

Sweet! I was looking under processors. I never thought about it being under gaming.

Kings Bounty: The Legend System Requirement
Intel Processor - Pentium 4 3.0GHz / AMD Processor - Athlon 64 3000+
Nvidia Graphics Card - GeForce 7900 GS / ATI Graphics Card - Radeon X1800 Series 256MB
RAM (Memory) - 1 GB Hard Disk Space - 5.5 GB Direct X - 9
Operating system Microsoft Windows XP / Microsoft Windows Vista

It could be that the game, itself, doesn't like Windows 7. Also, you should check the video options in the game and reset to either default or minimum specs. Perhaps it could be set to medium and adjust as you go. Some ATI cards need specific drivers for specific cards and not just any update.

If it is set to run on Vista, it will work in 7.

Any ATI card needs specific drivers to that card.
