In my case, it doesn't crash the system, but everything becomes very choppy and yucky. It only happens when I'm watching videos. Which is a bummer, because I'm slowly building a HTPC. Anyway, I'd uninstalled the drivers and Catalyst CC, and now I'm reinstalling catalyst, from the latest download, having seperately installed the drivers. BUT, on trying to reinstall catalyst, I've got a tick box for ATI Display Driver. Surely I can untick this because I've already installed the latest? Cheers guys More about : good news bad news jennyh a b U Graphics card March 27, 2010 1:52:38 PM Go into your control panel and add/remove programs. Choose the Catalyst install manager then Express uninstall ALL ATI software. After that restart your pc and reinstall the latest catalyst. badwolf13 March 27, 2010 2:03:17 PM Hi Thanks, but I've done this, now I'm trying to reinstall it, but I've realised what it's wanting to do...it wants to update the driver, because I've not got the latest one, but this is my issue... I'm not sure whether to install it, because it could cause a the atikmdag problem... Meh, no harm in trying, guess I can always roll back if needs be.

Get the answer badwolf13 March 27, 2010 2:05:03 PM Oh, just a quick question, should I uninstall the current driver before updating? I'm reluctant, I spent about an hour this morning wondering why the hell the installer couldn't run the detection driver. I ended up having to manual search for drivers on the CD. jennyh a b U Graphics card March 27, 2010 2:05:43 PM Just install it, it should be fine. jyjjy a c 376 U Graphics card March 27, 2010 2:11:12 PM Driver CDs should always be ignored in favor of the latest drivers available online.
