Hi Reux,

Welcome to Seven forums.

Kindly follow the steps advised by koolkat77. You should also remove the ATI driver following this uninstall utility:

AMD Catalyst Un-install Utility

Then, can install the latest video driver available for your system at the link below:

AMD Catalyst

Keep us posted with the results so we can advise you further.

Thank you for the welcoming.

I went ahead and nicked the files provided, reduced start-up items to microsoft services only, ran the clean catalyst uninstall and then did a restart. During the restart a CHKDSK was done.
Upon trying to install the driver listed above (13.9) it failed. Twice. The ATI Catalyst will not install.

I searched for updates of these files and was not successful.
nusb3hub.sys
nusb3xhc.sys

A text file of the Speccy summary is attached.

I now remain without what the Clean Catalyst uninstalled.

Cheers.

Hi Reux,

Thanks for your reply. Did you perform both the drivers provided by me and koolkat.

You mentioned that you have Windows X86 installed on the system. However, on your system specifications it mentioned that you have X64 operating system.

Please check the drivers to download and install on the system:

Intel

ATI

They might be old but are OEM drivers and should work correctly on the system. Keep us posted with the results.

Launch game as high priority
Would it improve performance on a game to launch it as a high priority process? Specifically, Garry's Mod. Is this possible? The problem is, I can't just minimize it and reset the process priority as doing so seems to make it crash.
