Hey guys, i recently purchased my hd 5770 and have just replaced it with my nvidia 8800gt as it just died on me...
when i try to enterwindows desktop the screen just goes blank, i can load up bios etc but cant reach to the desktop. I believe this is due to conflicting with my old nvidia drivers... might be wrong...
is there anyway that I can uninstall my old drivers through bios or windows disk etc as i really do not fancy losing all of my uni work just to reinstall windows for new graphcis card....
When windows is starting hit f8. Enter safe mode.
This is a mode where it does not load or even try to load a graphic driver
uninstall the whole ccc suite
go to device manager uninstall your card
Well in the repair area , you can enter backup and restore options, any chance you can go back to restore to a time , earlier than when the ATI card was put in ? Might be there unless you turned off backup or deleted earlier save points.
You may have hit a bug, a catch 22, that will be fixed in a windows service pack. Or lol
you might be missing the obvious or you are encountering a hardware problem with that old card.
We are all human and even the best of us , miss the obvious sometimes.
I have exactly the same problem with this card. I have never seen it working. As soon as install the hardware an start my computer it goes as far as your computer does. f8 safe mode does not help in this mater. Im desperate too.
