Un-installing an old graphics card?

Hey everyone, since I've gotten a new computer it came with the AMD VISIONS Graphics Driver/Control Panel, when I bought the computer I also purchased a PNY Graphics Card with it.

What I'm asking is, whenever I start up the computer I get this warning (it does not cause any bluescreens or real errors, I just want it to stop it from popping up.)



I started getting it after I installed my new graphics card, all I want to know is, what do I need to do to get that message disabled?

Hi IITT, welcome to 7F!

First go to Control Panel, and make sure AMD VISIONS has been uninstalled.
Then go to Device Manager, and make sure AMD VISIONS has at least been disabled.

Then type/copy/paste msconfig into Search or Run (Preferred) and check the startup tab for any mention of AMD graphics. If you find any uncheck them, and then restart.

Uninstall graphics drivers.

Then user DriverSweeper to remove remnants of video drivers.
