Currently Being ModeratedMar 18, 2011 4:59 AM (in response to suchy101)Not sure if this will help, but I'll mention what I have working on my MBP 2011 w/ Windows 7 (64 bit):
-Install Bootcamp 3.2 from Snow Leopard DVD
-No dice with Catalyst Software Suite installer 11.2 (catalystmobility_64-bitutil.exe). I can't remember exact error but it couldn't find a compatible card.
-Installed Catalyst Control Center (11-2mobility_vista_win7_32-64ccc.exe)
-Installed HydraVision Package (11-2mobility_vista_win7_32-64hydravision.exe)
-Installed AMD Media Codec Package (11-2mobility_vista_win7_32-64xcode.exe)
Driver is reported as 8.812.0.0 (1/4/2011) and I believe that this did not change during the CCC install. I think it recognized that it was there and left it alone.
I haven't played with the PowerPlay settings, but it looks like it gives me the option to set an active power plan and then enable PowerPlay for either "Plugged In" and/or "Battery". Plus there are 3 additional check boxes for refresh rate, brightness, and color depth.
Are these settings meant to allow for the onboard Intel video to kick in? My Vaio has a switch that is actually pretty sweet that allows for Intel/Nvidia or both (ondemand), but I have been wondering how the MBP did the switching.
I also got a couple minidisplay cables and tested them. Both the minidisplay to HDMI and VGA worked (they are both Encore Electronics adapters), but the VGA only gets 1680x1050 even though the cable says that it is rated for 1920x1200. And the HDMI doesn't do sound. This seems to be consistent in Windows and OSX.
My biggest problem (and actually the reason that I stumbled on this thread) has been the Bluetooth driver support under Bootcamp, which appears to be way off course. I won't divert this thread on that tangent...
Hopefully this helped at least a little... I am pretty big into backing up and restoring with Ghost, so if you want me to try anything let me know, I can back it out easy enough.Macbook Pro 17" (2011), Mac OS X (10.6.6), Windows 7 Pro (64-bit) Bootcamp

Yes I tried that too and have the Catalyst control panel installed while the actual drivers are still the old ones. Deleting them didn't make the Catalyst install the new drivers either.
Only help will be for AMD to change their instalattion. Fingers crossed.iMac 27" i7 (8GB RAM, 2TB HD) MacBook Pro 17" i7 (8GB RAM, 512GB SSD) iPhone 4, Mac OS X (10.6.6)

For video drivers to my MBP 2011 13" go to Windows Update and you will see that the correct driver is intel(R) HD Graphics Family.
Try to do this.

I have the same problem. Here is what it looks like on my computer:

See if this bookmark and the thread it references, are of help.
The latest ATI and that has helped is 11.8b, as in July or later beta

Hello, after a bit of google, i found that, all you need is download this file then install >> it works perfectly :

Someone said they found, and posted links, to the ATI 11.10 driver posted in the last 48 hrs.
Nvidia also posted new drivers.
And usually the current beta are best. Not always though. Sometimes older is ah, mature and better.

I have a macbookpro 15 which was experiencing the same issue, however, I found a link to a site that provides information and links to the drivers that could help solve your issue.
I have used it and I am now running catalyst 11.10 on my boot camp partition with Windows 7.
Here is the link.
You must follow it to the letter ok..
Hope this helps.

Thanks for your reply. I followed all of your instructions but unfortunately still am having the same exact issue. I can't apply the Powerplay setting. In the photo below I checked the box to show you that it won't let me apply the setting. If I close out of CCC and re open it Powerplay will not be enabled. It is also blank for the areas where the power settings should be. Any ideas?

While I'm not sure it's useful regarding Powerplay, I did successfully install all latest AMD graphics drivers onto my 2011 MBP running Win 7 x64. I documented the steps:
Hope this helps anyone else having problems.

I would not recommend any article or link such as to DRIVER SWEEPER which I have used and is fine, but send them to GURU3D, not CNET and not so that a file downloads without clicking.
It looks like a good tutorial and how to though that is much needed. People have tried to provide a step by step before and either wasn't 'universal' enough or drivers and installers change.
