Windows 7: BSOD every time on wake up

31 Oct 2009   #21

Windows 7 Professional x64

The thing was... it still tried to install the drivers even after I told it to never install from Windows update AND to never install drivers it found on the computer.

I had to uninstall the drivers then go in and take ownership of the ATI driver repository in C:/Windows/system32/ and delete it. Then restart, run the Catalyst drivers intall, restart, then run it again. THEN it worked.

And yeah, I definitely had different settings for battery power vs. plugged in, but I have no idea how that relates to video drivers waking up, and I still don't. But now it works, so I don't care.
