    Dear Microsoft Community,

    I'm getting a warning upon starting up my PC:

    "The Catalyst (R) Control Center is not supported by the driver version of
    your enabled graphics adapter. Please update your ATI graphics driver or
    enable your ATI adapter using the Displays Manager."

    Huh? Greek to me. I went to the Displays Manager through the control panel
    and tried to update the driver and it searched and told me I had the right
    driver.

    Any suggestions? I see no PC malfunction.

    What video card do you have? where did you install Catalyst control center
    from? CCC is for ATI cards only. To install the correct drivers for your
    card go to the manufacturers web site and download the latest package for
    your video card and install it.

    Mismatch between driver version and Catalyst version?
    Downloading the "package" from ATI instead of the drivers only might just
    solve the problem.
    It's also possible that the video card/chip is running with the Microsoft
    VGA/SVGA driver instead of the chip/card specific drivers.

    One possible symptom is a rapid up and down fan speed on a video card.
