Default Switching from ATI to NVIDIA and back again!

Had to reinstall my ATI after my new 970 was playing up, however, I don't think I properly removed the previous nvidia drivers and now when the computer goes into sleep mode it fails to wake up.

So, I ran driver sweeper and after finding nvidia chipset/display/physx it fails to remove them after a clean and reboot. It removed all ATI drivers though.

Any advice please?

Did you run Drive Sweeper in safe mode?
Quote:
This method will delete remaining files upon reboot (if deleting failed). You can clean your drivers this way:

Use the official uninstaller(s) of the driver(s) you want to uninstall.
Reboot your PC in Safe Mode.
Run Driver Sweeper and select what to clean.
Analyse lists all the entries possible to remove, cleaning removes the entries selected.
More drivers can be selected for the same cleaning process.

Didn't deny that. I was just posting it to make sure the OP didn't gloss over it in the sea of words in the old version page.
