This is my first experience with Windows 7 and Ati products.
My problem appeared when I used my Tv Card (SkyStar 2 + Smartdvb ), the image was very bad whatever decoder or render I use. Then I updated Graphic card driver to that I mention above, and everything seems good. Now, suddenly every videos seems bad, I played around with everything I know like CCC or decoders options, but nothing changed, also I tried Restore system.
Note: This problem is not the same as before I installed new graphics card driver
Here's a picture maybe can be useful ( Look at logos and players faces, nothing clear )
pay attention to each install and how the system reacts like java and other software packages.
let windows installer load the video drivers so keep your internet connection open.
try the graphics drivers windows installs first before you start changing them.
What really killing me, is that I managed to adjust that and image looked very clear as it was in XP, but everything blow away without touching or installing any program or video settings. And what complicate things now, FORMAT DIDN'T CHANGE ANTHING!
Note: The real problem is about lacking of details like people faces and logos, and that include all codecs ( XVID, H.264/AVC/x264/MPEG2 .... ), but games are okay
I'll try XP again, because I never try video card & monitor over XP, or it's a stupid idea
