I think there may be the problem in the driver files which is installed in your computer. You have to do the roll back for the video card driver. For roll back for the graphic card follow the given steps.
  • Right click on the My computer.
  • Then go to properties
  • Then click on the hardware Tab
  • After that go to the Device manager
  • And then choose the graphic card.
  • Now click on the roll back
  • This will help you to roll back of the graphic card driver.

I am also having the same problem with same graphic card. The only problem is that in the Device Manager, it corresponds to which driver ? Another thing: when I click download, it gives me : "dell driver management " and not a driver file that I can click with as a catalyst , what should I do ?
Thank you and goodnight.
