well, interestingly enough I did just about everything and after about,
oh i don't know, 15 mins, i get the error again that my display driver
has stopped working. luckily though, my system didn't blue screen on me
like all the other times, so i must be getting closer to the fix.

so here is everything that i have done.


- un-installed some patch update KB952287
- removed all ati software including driver
- rebooted
- reinstalled ati driver only
- rebooted
- removed ati console manager that is required to install driver
- ran ccleaner, twice
- ran registry mechanic

i'm all out of options here. i don't have my system overclocked. i did
have my card overclocked at one point, but everything is currently at
stock settings. i'm about to roll back to xp. oh, and it did it again as
I was typing this out.

You may want to dump CCC and install the ATI drivers that Microsof
has. Uninstall everything with ATI, go into device manager and Uninstal
your video driver with the delete software option, re-boot, go back int
device manager and update the driver with the Internet option: Drive
date 10/28/2008, ver. 8.552.0.0

worked for me. I am done playing around with these darn things.

ATI Radeon HD3870 512M

In device manager go to driver, click update driver and select searc
automatically. Make sure your deleted the ATI drivers and have th
generic drivers before searching for an update. I have not had one o
the crazy Video stopped .... sinc

You can OC if you know how to flash a bios. That is how I did it.
Changed a fan speed as well. It can be tricky, so don't attempt it if
you are not 100000 % sure how to do it. You can disable your card.

Since I took the drivers from the MS search, I have not had ONE crash.
It is that darn CCC. Also, I became mad when I could not load the 8.12
with the HD 3870 and Vista 64. I will not work. I cleaned the ATI mess
up and gone this way and I am done fighting video drivers.

well, i did flash the bios some time last year and was overclocking
with out any problems, but then again that was on XP. i'm a lil
disappointed in this whole vista/ati mess. and that's after i waited a
year and a half to make the switch to vista. maybe i should have looked
around a lil harder for issues prior to installing the OS.

i tried to use rivatuner, but that seemed to flake out after not
recognizing the ati stuff. so i just left it as is.

I bet if ATI was still the independent Canadian company they were, thi
would have been fixed by now
