Windows 7: ATI Radeon Driver uninstall ... not in add/remove programs

Windows 7

What is the 'Previous ATI Catalyst' link? I have already downloaded the current ATI drivers / software for the new HD5670 card from here: ATI Radeon

I don't think you're running the Windows video driver. You're clearly running the ATI driver, even if it got applied through your Win7 installation and/or Windows Update.

Normally the downloaded ATI driver package (either complete "suite" or "separates" for driver and then Catalyst Control Center, which is how I do it to keep what I install to a minimum) will also install that ATI Catalyst Install Manager, which is how you would then do an uninstall.

That surely seems like the only reason you don't have the ATI Catalyst Install Manager showing in your Control Panel -> uninstall a program.

Anyway, I would think you can delete everything for your existing ATI video driver using Driver Sweeper. Obviously it is intended to delete any last bits and pieces left over from uninstalling using the Install Manager, but I believe it should get rid of everything for you. Follow the several steps, including re-boot into Safe Mode, and when you finally come back up in normal mode you WILL be running with the default Microsoft video drivers.

Then you should be able to run the official ATI Catalyst driver install. And you WILL then end up with that Catalyst Install Manager to use in the future, if you need to.
