Hello. I have an HP Pavilion dv7-6059eo with Windows 7 64-bit. My GPU is a Radeon HD 6770M. I've had this problem for 2 months without being able to fix it, so help would be greatly appreciated.
 
I had AMD graphics drivers installed which I downloaded from the official HP driver site, but my programs and games often crashed because of my display driver restarting. I googled the problem, and I found out that some other people had the problem as well, and that it could be because of outdated graphics drivers.
 
So I uninstalled the graphics drivers from HP and I downloaded some newer ones from the AMD website (I now know that this isn't the proper way to upgrade them), and it worked, my GPU wasn't crashing anymore, but after a while I wanted to switch back to the HP drivers, because of some functions missing.
 
So I uninstalled the drivers from AMD and I downloaded the HP drivers for my product again, however this time the installer does not seem to be able to install the drivers at all. Right now I am using the GPU that's built into the Intel CPU, and it's obviously not good enough for gaming.
 
When I try to install the drivers, the only things that the installer wants to install are these:
 
 
And when it's done, it says "Installation complete (warnings occured during installation). View Log for details." But when I click "View Log" it doesn't show any errors:
 
 
And when I go to my installed programs, the only new program that seems to have appeared is this:
 
 
I've tried removing ALL AMD drivers before installing them again, but it still doesn't work. It's like my computer doesn't even know that I have an AMD GPU, or maybe it thinks that the drivers are already installed. Thank you in advance.
