Windows 7: NVidia won't go away

NVidia won't go away

An example...Angry Birds Seasons.

What Rovio told me:
"Thanks for getting that crash log to us!
The line: 'Faulting module path: C:\Windows\system32\atioglxx.dll' suggests that a file related to your ATI graphics card drivers is faulting and causing the program to crash.

I'm being told by win 7 that my graphics driver is up to date. I removed the graphics driver and reinstalled it again, and again. Then something weird...I discovered nvidia drivers installed and I have a Raedon onboard that I'm using. I never had an nvidia card installed in this build. I use the previous hd as a backup (with everything intact [win XP Pro, nvidia]), in case this one crashes and for saved files such as documents) but I boot from the new drive.

I uninstalled the nvidia drivers. Uninstalled the raedon drivers and reinstalled them. Tried opening the game and got the same error. Basically the same crash log. A restore point won't work because they all have the nvidia drivers in them.

I would like to fix this problem without having to reinstall the os, if it is at all possible. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I have to go search for info on the build as all my boxes are in storage so I can't just grab the boxes and get the model numbers for the parts. I didn't save the build info here. My mistake. Here's what I remember:

Asus FM2 series mb
Athlon II, x2 5200
8 GB, crucial memory
WD 1 terrabyte SATA hd
WD 120 G SATA, (with win xp)
Win 7 home premium

I have never come across a problem when having multiple video drivers installed, the system simply does not use the unneeded drivers. Not saying to keep them, just saying don`t be up in arms about it.

Work with Dude, he will fix your issue.

I ran it and cleaned up the leftover nvidia files (there were at least 20 of them). I will uninstall and reinstall the game, but it's going to have to be tomorrow. I have to go to work.

Is there some way to find out what driver/program that particular .dll belongs to? I still haven't figured out navigation to the dlls. It was way simpler in previous versions of Windows.

I'll be back.

Make sure you clean and re-install the ATI drivers too. That dll is part of the ati driver. Download the driver from your motherboard site.

Huge brain fart! Took me a while to figure it out, but all I had to do was use the Catalyst Control Center. Duh! It dawned on me after you told me to re-install the ATI drivers, and an hour or so searching the AMD site. I never used the control center, so I forgot it was there. Thanks for all your time and expertise!

Also, AMD has a nifty little download called AMD Driver Autodetect. So, if you ever need to help someone with an AMD, you might want to suggest it.
