  1. Download the latest drivers from the ATI site and set it aside.
    Then remove all the ATI/MSI display drivers and use driver sweeper, turn off the pc , open it up and take out the video card and reseat it again , make sure connect the power to the card from the psu and it is seated properly.
    Go into safe mode, install the new drivers and see how it goes.
  2. When I remove the drivers do I need to go into the registry or can I take care of all that trhough the device manager???? Also after I disconnect my video card do I need to start up the comp. And then shutdown and reconnect to card or take out of mobo but leave connected and reboot????
  3. Just uninstall the drivers from my computer uninstall change a program.
    You can always use CCleaner to clean up any files in the registry, or you can locate the ATI driver files in program files and delete them manually.
    Just disconect the card and put it back in nice a firmly making sure its seated well.
    Then plug in the power from the psu , close it up and boot the pc.
  4. Ok I will try in the morning cause I'm at work..... also y do u think the auto update will not work???? I'm not just looking for someone to answer my question but I would like to learn how to troubleshoot and know what to do because this is my first PC build
  5. The auto update from windows update is a fix for some , its worth a try
  6. No I mean using msi live update or letting catalyst do the update
  7. Dont use the msi updater , remove all of it and the drivers and then just go to the ATI website and do a clean install of the latest drivers
  8. Do u have to the catalyst suite or can u just install the driver
  9. Ok did all the steps and stillgot error message.... this is the install log after i followed the steps..
