Ahh, I see, anyhow that un-indexed drive tip helps too, thx I got indexing off on my drives
thx for the info
Good guide, but I always keep my profiles... add that so no one cries about their OC they lost in CCC.
When uninstalling drivers i just do Section A.
No sir , do all 4 steps then reboot, then reinstall!
Updated with Microsoft Visual C++ uninstall info.
*Updated. I currently do not own a SLi setup. I need some information from some of you current Sli users on any hint's/tips for installation, so all multi-card users can get thier systems running great! Thanks in advance!
I've been having a lot of trouble trying to update my ATi drivers from v8.53 to something more current and decided to give your quick guide a try...had nothing to lose, nothing else was working....
I could not get the 8.5 drivers to uninstall properly along with CCC becoming corrupted and not able to open and run...I wasn't even able to uninstall from programs and features.
After following your quick guide I was finally able (I think) to fully remove all traces of previous versions of ATi drivers.I then tried installing the v8.8 drivers and their latest v8.10, neither would install properly, so I lastly gave the v8.9 a go and it seemed to complete the install without any errors.The CCC was now operating and all seems fine.
My one problem I still have is when checking for the updated driver version, my device manager still shows v8.53 and although it says this device is working properly, it also gives me a msg that says, Windows did not start a related device driver.
When I open CCC, it gives me driver packaging version 8.53 but says Catalyst version is 08.9.
I really don't know what driver version I'm running if my device manager is still showing the 8.53 version. I would have thought that after the completed unistall and re-install that it would show the newly updated drivers. Also the msg in the device mgr about Windows not starting a related device driver. Is this something that can cause a problem ? ....Is this normal or could I have missed something when unistalling.....
Thxxxx for any ideas......and Thxxxx for a good guide...
Printed off for my swap to the Red side tomorrow. Thanks erocker!
I have to thank you erocker for this guide!
I was stuck with ati 8.6 drivers for a while now and everytime I tried to update I would get a catalyst crash
great guide erocker
now i can play all my games again
That's why I posted this guide. For the games!
This Needs a Stickie, To add more info Run Driver Cleaner Pro which can be found on Driver Heaven/GURU3D (not Driver Cleaner.net)
Also For ATI Users, Turn off Windows Automatic Restart- Found in System Properties and VPU Recovery- Found in ATI CCC, or ATI Tray Tools, Im unsure about Riva Tuner or ATI Tool (If ATI tool is even being developed anymore, or did our fearless leader give up on the project?)
To add another Point- if you happen to need to go into the Registry- Advanced Users only- Since Nvidia is the only Company in Town that Makes a Nvidia Core Logic, be careful what you remove from the registry that is Nvidia Related. Example if your removing NV Vid Drivers, there could be multiple NV entries- Don't guess at what NV Entries Control the vidcards and what controls the Core Logic, Research before you delete, Same can be said for the ATI Core Logic of 580x and Lower before the AMD Purchase.
Read this for more info on ATI Drivers, very current as of Page 5.
I focus on the ATI Drivers more because I use ATI
thanks for the guide!
Thanks good guide.
Thanks good guide
I should have followed this guide, then I most probably woudldn't have screwed up with the new cards drivers. Shame on me. I will pay attention to it the next time, promise.
Hello! I need an experienced SLi user to give me the run down on a successful SLi install and any nuances that go with it to add to the guide. It will be much appreciated.
Also, if anyone has any tips/tricks/tweaks they would like to share, please do!
Just realized i had some old Nvidia driver folders in my ''Nvidia'' folder.(systems been working fine tho)
I deleted them.
my problem is reinstaler my realtekAC97 please help
these guides shuld be someware in blaine view on the main page(like guides for newcomers or something like that)! anyway good job Erocker and a friendly advise STOP BANNING NEW COMERS BECAUSE THEY HAVE DIFFERENT OPINIONS ON STUFF
AltecV1 you need to read the policies here dude, you do come off here being a little vulgar, that's what gets people kicked off here for a day, next thing you know it its a week then boom a permanent ban.
why would you say that? i sayd good job with the guide and sayd be more gentle with newcomers! if you think that i vulgar then you should go and and watch what vulgar means my little grumpy friend:shadedshu any way back to topic.
as i said i warned you, all i can say friend is good luck with the wolves.
If there is anyone specifically in question, please PM me, and thank you.
Just go into the Control Panel and uninstall the old realtek drivers. The newest drivers can be found at www.realtek.com.tw.
