Windows 7: Big Problem With ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT PCI-E 512MB

Big Problem With ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT PCI-E 512MB

Hi, I am sure this forum has seen a lot of posts like this one about ATI and windows 7, but i am litterlly tearing my hair out over this...

I have Windows 7 64 Bit and an ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT PCI-E 512MB card - and after installing windows it has a driver installed for it - but i have no catylist control center for it anywhere (plus im not sure this is the 'latest' driver?). - plus updated through windows update.

Anyway as i always do as a matter of course - I installed the new ATI drivers off the website and told it my card and os.

However upon rebooting i would always get a "No ATI driver installed, or the ATI Driver is not functioning properlly" error message (I also had this on Windows 7 32 bit)

Uninstalling the driver reverts back to the windows one.

However I at least need CCC to be working so i can use anti alising for my games like flight sim etc.

Would be nice if i could get it upto the newest driver AND have CCC working though.

However at the moment I don't know if either is possible

Thank you in advance for your ideas for a solution to this problem.

I have an ATI HD 2600 Pro 512.. I just switched from that to an ATI HD 5750. I had driver problems at first too when switching..

Even though you roll back or use Program Features to uninstall the drivers, sometimes it does not completely remove all ATI's bits and pieces, and they conflict with each other.

The best thing to do is use Microsoft's Installer Clean Up Utility to completely remove every trace of ATI software on your system. This will get things the uninstaller misses. Run this after rolling back your driver to the windows default super vga driver.

Get it here: |MG| Windows Installer CleanUp Utility 7.2 Download

This will be listed as anything with ATI or Catalyst Control Center or CCC on it. ( You will see all 3 types when you run this software) Just click on each one and remove them one at a time.

Any of the above you don't see means the uninstaller caught them.. don't worry about them.. just worry about the ATI CCC or Catalyst Control Center entries that you do see.

Reboot then install the new software. It should work fine now.

After I had uninstalled my old ATI drivers I was shocked by how many bits of this software was still on my system.
