As with previous versions of the AMD graphics driver, this newest package failed to address all possible hardware errors one might receive upon installation, so a hotfix was provided.Since it seems to be that time of the month, Advanced Micro Devices delivered its newest graphics driver.
Known as Catalyst 11.5, the software supports Radeon and FireStream series adapters and includes both the driver itself and the Catalyst Control Center.
Those that want to download it need only drop by this article, where we covered it in detail and provided the necessary download links.
Unfortunately, as is not unheard of for this sort of drivers, there are some issues consumers may encounter.

Needless to say, this can become rather frustrating, so the Sunnyvale, California-based outfit made sure to offer a solution.
Granted, it was unable to include it in the main data package itself, so it settled for handing it out in the form of a hotfix.
As was the case with the driver itself, four versions of the hotfix exist, for each of the operating systems supported.
To be more specific, there is a version for Windows XP, one for XP 64bit, one for Vista/7 and one for Vista/7 64bit.
Consumers that find themselves faced with either of the unfortunate situations mentioned above need only follow one of the appropriate links below.
