Default Re: ATI drivers??

ALWAYS uninstall old drivers, especially for ATI cards. Nvidia can be more unforgiving as it will uninstall the old before installing the new, but ATI doesn't.

Uninstall through Add/Remove, boot the safe mode, use Driver Sweeper, boot back into Windows, install the new drivers. Yes it is a pain, but it ensures you won't have any problems.

It just the same as running in normal mode, except depending on which options you choose, there is no windows aero and is like the 98 theme, there is also a lot less system processes running, only the ones windows needs to run. Other than that you can just run programs as your would in normal mode.

Default Re: ATI drivers??

question, should i use Driver Sweeper for everything that i update? Because, i never uninstall drivers n then reinstall new ones. It's a hassle, but im going to give my 9.4 Catalyst a go.
