Windows 7: Upgraded from Radeon 4890 to GTX 560Ti and..

Upgraded from Radeon 4890 to GTX 560Ti and..

I did a clean install(Nvidia drivers that is, not Windows, and no I didn't use DriverSweeper, did it all manually, plus the new Nv driver install has a 'clean install' option, but I think it's only with regard to old 'Nvidia' stuff, not ATI/AMD etc etc), and as far as I know, removed 'all' ATI software, including OpenAL. I removed the ATI Stream folder, but the driver exists still somewhere, this is the message I get when I open GPUZ to look at my new Nvidia card.



Once I click okay, it opens just fine, but look>

It won't list as computing OpenCL, because of a conflict with the ATI Stream driver, ie, the AMD OpenCL.

Where might I find this? I feel certain I removed virtually anything AMD, all that's left is the AMD RAID Xpert, but I need that, I love it, and doubt it has anything to do with this.

Any tips at all are greatly appreciated.

Specs are a Phenom II 965, 8GB, Windows 7 64bit, and this new Nv card, thanks

(btw, this might be the best bang for the buck card I've ever come across, the performance is mind boggling, and it runs like 60*c, amazing. Scores 7.8's in WEI !!)

Does anyone have any idea where the AMD OpenCL driver may be hiding? Please!!!

Did you uninstall the ATI drivers before installing the Nvidia card?

There should have been a listing in the Add/Remove programs for "ATI CCC Manager" or something along that line.
If you choose "Remove ALL ATI/AMD applications" it should have un-installed everything.

Has anyone else had that experience?

Since you were changing GFX brands, Driver Sweeper would have been a better idea. Download and run it to see if it will pick up the old AMD/ATI bits.
The nVIDIA clean install option is only for NV and doesn't really clean all of the old driver. That's why most of us will suggest DS.

Ah, yes.
I can see where that may cause some confusion.

The "Clean Install" for Nvidia drivers just means it resets all Nvidia settings to default values when upgrading.

I have yet to experience any problem CAUSED by driversweeper.
I have had it solve quite a few though.

Glad to hear, please go back to your first post and mark it solved

Also you may want to keep that link for driver sweeper as it's not being supported by the original guru3d people anymore.
The version you got from that link is the actual up to date one.
