I'm not familiar with Asus "chipset" drivers, but if the Packages have their own installers, then give those a try.

When I download from AMD or the Toshiba support site, they are only listed as video drivers.

Windows should auto create a restore point, but create your own before installing.

Should you not have done this before, go Start - right click on Computer and select Properties then click on System Protection.

When the buttons become active, click on Create - give it a name - say, Pre AMD then click on Create and follow the prompts to close off when it reports the restore point created successfully.

EDIT - I'm shooting off now to do my evening meal but will be back later.
Tom.

When i rebooted i found my display similar to safemode,checking device manager it showed as having no display driver installed??,i had to rollback to my previous version,due to this happening i am going to hold off installing anything else in the chipset driver folder in case it causes more problems than help.

i need you to open note pad and type this in save as fix catroot2.bat and rightclick run as admin
Code: [Select]
net stop cryptsvc
esentutl /p
%systemroot%\System32\catroot2\{F750E6C3-38EE-11D1-85E5-00C04FC295EE}\catdb
rmdir /s /q %systemroot%\system32\catroot2.old
md %systemroot%\system32\catroot2.old
xcopy %systemroot%\system32\catroot2 %systemroot%\system32\catroot2.old /s
del /f /q %systemroot%\system32\catroot2\*.*
net start cryptsvc
pause
afterwards do another prescan from the tweaking program let me know if those files are fixed

@ Julian - shouldn't that batch file include restarting the cryptsvc ?

I think I would be starting to consider backing up personal stuff and doing a factory reset.

Let us know how it works out.

It was puzzling that the display driver that you installed resulted in the on board VGA being used.

@Boggin and Julian,great news guys  :cheesy:,decided to do a repair reinstall using a windows disc i (luckily) created just last year instead of doing a factory reset,reinstall went smoothly and on the final reboot i received a message from windows "setup has detected that the .NET Framework version 4.5 needs to be repaired",after this rebooted again to find i could not connect to wifi as my wifi driver was not digitally by Microsoft !!,disabled driver signature enforcement from the boot menu and got wifi back,tested windows update and im now checking for updates wohoooo,im sure i have many updates to sit through now and some driver updates but im back up and running.Only things that have changed are my personal setting in windows and i now have a windows compatibility shortcut on my desktop (thanks microsoft ugh).

So a big thank you to you both for your help,patience and advice with my problem,just one final question is do either of you have any idea why i ended up with some many corrupt window packages as found in my pre scan?,i dont mess with settings in windows and mainly just surf and play music,i run ccleaner once a month using default settings and thats about it.Im slightly worried this could happen again.

Anyway once again a big thanks from me for your help.

How did you create the install disk and do you have a valid retail key (not OEM sticker key), as that is the only way you can perform a repair install so that Windows is activated for more than 30 days.

If you don't have a valid retail key, then go Start - type activate windows and press enter to see what it reports.

If I remember correctly I downloaded the ISO from a site called Riverbridge or similar then using a Microsoft conversion tool created a Windows 7 disc.Yes I have a valid Windows serial on a sticker on bottom of my laptop.Still scanning for updates but I believe it takes a long time as Windows has to recompile all the updates.
