    Install the AMD Proprietary fglrx Graphics driver - http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx

    Install AMD APP SDK - http://developer.amd.com/tools/heterogeneous-computing/amd-accelerated-parallel-processing-app-sdk/

     

    Run the samples in the AMD APP SDK, Look at the source code and you are on your way....

    If in doubt, post here - The forum will help you out..

      I am not getting my right driver.

      I have installed vs 2008 and AMD APP SDK and trying to run sample "HelloWorld"  it telling "NO GPU device Found Set CPU as Default Device " what does it mean?

        Driver is necessary to run OpenCL on GPUs. If you only install AMD APP SDK, you will get the CPU runtime(but not GPU runtime).

        You should select

        Notebook Graphics as the Type of system you have.

        Radeon HD Series as product family

        Radeon HD 6xxxM as product

        And relevent Operating System.

        Hope it helps.

        What is the driver that you installed?

         

        As I can see from the driver download page, you have to select

        1. Notebook Graphics

        2. Radeon HD series

        3. Radeon HD 6xxxM series

        4. And then, your OS (with appropriate bitness)

         

        Did the driver install succeed? Are you able to see the Catalyst Control Center (CCC) when you say,right-click on your desktop

            Yes, thats the protocol.

             

            Generic Notebook drivers are not compatible with all notebooks.

            So, If you look at the web-page, it says the generic driver is not compatible with

            "

            Notebooks equipped with switchable graphics

            "

            What is the notebook that you are using?

            If you are not using any of the above, i would recommend you to download the verification tool and run it.

            Probably, I am assuming that the tool will auto-download the driver after it finds out the compatibility.

                Can you elaborate more on what you mean by "it is not working"?

                Is the driver installation failing? Please give more details. I can help you resolve your problem.

                  I shows Your internet connection is not connected but actually my internet is connected  so this fail  to install driver.

                    That may be a internet connectivity issue. Try downloading the Driver executable from some other source. You seem to be trying to download the right driver.

                    You might face some problems with this driver as notebook vendors are responsible for their setup. And It is recommended to use vendor's drivers. Although I have used AMD's proprietary drivers without much problems in my laptop (not DELL though). So probably 13.1 driver should also work fine.

                      I have installed driver from my CD and also install AMD SDK and VS 2010.

                      I try to run sample Helloworld program it saying "NO GPU device found  set CPU as a default Device"

                      Tell now what to do..

                        OK. Can you tell what Driver version you have installed? Check Catalyst Control Center, (Information -> Software Tab). Number should be something like 12.10 or 13.1.

                        Hope you restarted the system after installing driver. Run clinfo and check if GPU is detected.

                        If it still does not work, there might be some problem because of the failed driver installations you experienced earlier. Try cleaning up the driver using http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/GPU57RemoveOldGraphicsDrivers.aspx or Driver sweeper software or AMD cleanup utility(Win7 only). And then do a fresh install.

                        Since Dell is not listed in the unsupported notebooks in the download page, you should actually go ahead and install the driver from AMD's website. I dont understand why this is failing. Can you post some screenshots on the failure? We want to know why you are not able to install this driver.

                         

                        However, if you insist that you will install the driver from your laptop vendor (i.e. from CD), You should go ahead and contact your laptop vendor for support.

                            okay, It is very clear that your laptop hardware is not supported by AMD proprietary driver.

                            So, you are right in reaching out to Dell site.

                             

                            The PDF talks about VC++ redist failure. I suggest you install the VC redist from microsoft website/

                            Redist helps to install VC++ applications to execute without any issues on systems that dont have VC installed.

                            You can check http://www.microsoft.com/en-in/download/details.aspx?id=5555 for x86 (32-bit) redistributable.

                            Just google around, you should be able to find microsft site for your platform..

                             

                            After installing the redist, you can re-try the diver from Dell ite.

                            Good Luck!

                                Your best bet is Dell support. They can tell you which driver to use, what hardware you have.

                                This forum is not the best place since the AMD-notebook-driver -verifier has already told that there is an incompatibility.

                                 

                                Good luck!
