    Default AMD FireGL V3100 Driver Not Detected by Windows 8

    Hello!

    I have a AMD FireGL V3100 in a Dell Optiplex 745. I am running Windows 8.1.

    I have two monitors hooked up to my PC via the AMD, one is a Acer and the other is a HP. Windows 8 seems to not be able to recognize my second monitor! I have installed all sorts of drivers from AMD and they either are not detected or won't install. Currently the Windows Basic Driver is installed according the the Device Manager. I did check in Windows Updates and there was nothing there either.

    Someone suggested that I should try going into DM, right-click VGA (which isn't on my list), and click update. Then browse to the location of the driver I downloaded is and choose that. I tried doing this in Display Adaptors, but it said that Windows determined that the Basic Driver was the latest driver for it, it refused the driver I told it to update to.

    I noticed that I have a Video Controller in Other Device that has no drivers installed. Is that my AMD? I tried to right-click > Update Driver Software, but it says "Windows was unable to install your device."

    Dell's latest driver for video is a generic one that works with a bunch of different cards and that doesn't even work. It is a Vista driver, and I did try compatibility mode. No dice.

    The funny thing is, the drivers I have tried worked perfectly in Windows 7 Pro.

    Any advice you can give is well appreciated!

    Try uninstalling the driver that is not being recognized (on Device Manager Window, right-click on the monitor icon with problem and select uninstall). Reboot and reinstall the latest driver you have by running it "As Admin". Reboot and see if it helps.

    I tried that and it always comes back whenever I refresh the DM list.

    This may be the last shot I can give to you but try it if you haven't done so. You may need to disable the Driver Signature Enforcement on Win 8. No guarantee but no harm trying. Uninstall and reinstall the driver again afterwards.

    I am starting to think I should just go back to Win7 Pro.

    The choice is yours to make. But personally, my main PC is running 3 monitors on Win 7 OS.

    My Win 8 HTPC is running 2 screen also... 1-46" HDTV and 1-17" secondary monitor but the video card is on-board so I don't have problem running 2 screens with it. And IMHO, Win 8 sucks! :P

    Must be nice, but I don't have 3 monitors. I found one more thing I am going to try real quick. If it don't work, good-bye Win8 hello Win7.
