Windows 7: Upgraded from Radeon 4890 to GTX 560Ti and..

There must have been 50-75 ATI files left behind! It removed them, restarted and everything is perfect now.

I did the uninstall process exactly the way I've always done, but I wasn't thinking that this time I was changing brands. I should have ran DriverSweeper right after the uninstall.

Anyway it's perfect, OpenCL is available and everything is working perfect, rep all around

Yeah, that's the true problem, and both nvidia and ati suffer from it.
Their uninstalls don't actually remove the package completely.

Another quick question, which is why I didn't edit it to solved yet.

Now when I try to launch certain games, it says it cannot locate OpenAL drivers. I guess driver sweeper removed OpenAL.

Now, do AMD and Nvidia have their own proprietary OpenAL drivers, or is it entirely seperate? If so where do I get the driver, if not, is there some place that provides this driver? I know what it is, but it's open source right? Who would host such a thing I guess.

Thanks again, you're all so helpful, and incredibly quick to reply.

OpenAL is actually a audio thing.
info here:
Home - OpenAL

and then go here
Downloads
and download and run the windows installer for it.
should fix the problem.

That's good news, glad you're up and running.
In my sig is a link for Revo Uninstaller, it's a good choice for removing programs, more complete than Windows.
