Windows 7: Need help installing driver.

19 Dec 2009   #1

win 7 64bit
Need help installing driver.

Ok so when I had xp installing drivers was pretty simple.
*uninstall then reboot
*driver cleaner reboot
*install new driver reboot and your all good

Now with windows 7 (64bit) i am having some problems. I am trying to update my driver for my 1900xt (ancient I know) because I seem to have below normal FPS in most games. I downloaded the ati driver package for win 7 64bit and installed. During installation I never actually see the driver or CCC being installed. I only see...
*Microsoft visual c++
*Cat installation Manager
*Ati problem report wizard

Now after installing Windows Defender pops up with the C:amd/cat... path, notsure what that is all about.

What is the correct way of installing and uninstalling drivers in win 7? Becuase I cant seem to get this to install properly. Do i need to disable something in windows? Thanks in advance.

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

Installation is the same with Windows 7 but many people seem to be having problems getting the ATI drivers to install correctly. Don't use a download manager. Try here for the latest ATI driver.

There is also a hotfix which is supposed to help with card detection.
