Re: Win XP keeps reloading standard video drivers
Posted: 04-03-2004, 07:33 AM
luck. I have disconnected my cable, completely taken
every reference to ATI from my computer/registry, emptied
the rcycle bin, rebooted to safe mode, used Driver Cleaner
3, re-emptied the recycle bin, rebooted, reintalled the
CATALYST drivers or the Omega drivers or the DNA drivers
and the control panel. Everything works fine with new
drivers until I reboot. Then it goes back to the Standard
VGA drivers. A great pain in the ass.
