Hello everyone,

HDMI is FIXED with Radeon Software 16.1, great!!! :D

Everyting is working with full cleanup DDU.

We made a great campaign, I am pleased that together we can solve these problems by informing Microsoft, since AMD always ignored us.

Thanks .Dalby, UnifL team, for this great campaign.

Thanks to Microsoft for forcing AMD.

Thank you all for your participation :D

Now report, if possible, about other problems with the Dynamic mode.

Regards

Hello everyone,

I've just come from the university and installed the Catalyst 15.11, confirmed all my games work on ATI, no more black screen :D

Thanks .Dalby, UnifL team, for this great campaign.

Thanks to Microsoft for forcing AMD, and AMD to solve it.

Thank you all for your participation :D

Now wait for the official HDMI solution, and report, if possible, about other problems with the Dynamic mode.

Hello everyone,

Bootloop was already solved (Thanks to Microsoft for forcing AMD), But problems still exist with any drivers which are newer than 14.4 (By extension, any driver from Windows Update).
This post is only for Intel 1GEN + ATI variants.

To clarify, the Black screen that we are reporting is not the same black screen that appears to the login.


-->There exist two Black screen:
1. When you open certain applications ATI / AMD, these get black screen with sound. (only Intel 1gen + ATI variants)
2. Black screen (up to two minutes) after loading Windows but before logon. This is solved (temporarily) with ULPS= 0, UnifL drivers by default. (common problem for everyone Intel + AMD)

-->HDMI still not working.(only Intel 1gen + ATI variants)

Regards

Confirmed, I have a first generation Intel and ATI Radeon 5470M "Switchable Graphics".
I have 2 operating systems:
Windows 7: No problems with later drivers to Catalyst 14.4.

Windows 8.1: bootloop with later drivers to Catalyst 14.4.


This problem also exists in Windows 10, which brings me to the question:
Why has not been solved?
How much waiting to fix it?
The Catalyst 14.4 was published in April 2014, so far Microsoft and AMD do not give a solution.

How do you expect Microsoft to upgrade to Windows 10 if this problem is not solved?

This is a very serious problem, should fix this first.
As always ignored and / or leave in background Mobility users.

Also, with the build 9926 of Windows 10, we were able to install the Catalyst 14.4, but Microsoft made it impossible installation. What a shame.
