hi, are the above the same thing? just tried to upgrade the display driver, because of the display has lines across it, so went to the ATI website, downloaded the driver all 32mb of it, it starts to install then gives a message.

INF Error

video driver not found.

anyone any idea what is going on......thanks

Sounds like you are downloading the wrong driver

However, did you uninstall the old driver first?

What card do you have?

video driver./ display driver are the same

click here this app determines if the drivers are compatable with your system.

why the name change? How are you?

Download drive cleaner pro first click here and install it. Do not run it yet

Uninstall Ati drivers in Add/Remove

Now go into safe mode (F5/F8)

When in safe mode start Drive cleaner pro and click on the drop down and select ATI, repeat process with all ATI. I would also click on tools and then and clean them. You could also clean the SP2 cab files (these take a bit of time to clean) as well mate.

When done restart computer and click cancel when box pops up to install drivers. Now locate the AtI file for latest driver. I would also download the old driver just in case.

opps the link didnt show right,but on the driver page there is an app that tells you if your system is compatable with the driver you want.

the name change just happened, must have been bored

anyway, I will follow the instructions and see what happens, if i never come back it will be because it has all gone wrong..

thanks Tony & Acolyte
