Hello,
I replaced my ati video card but when I tried to remove the drivers with the add/remove option it kept giving me an error and could not remove the ati display driver. I finally erased the folder manually. I'm now using a Geforce card,but every time I start up my machine it gives me an error message saying that the ati driver cannot be found so it can not be loaded.
My question is what do I delete so it will stop trying to load this driver and where do i go to delete it
thank you.
Win 98se

do a search of the c: drive for ati*.* this should list most of the ati related files also run msconfig and uncheck any ati related programs in the startup folder

I'm glad someone asked this question, because I'm soon going to have to do the same thing....GF card is in the mail, to replace my ATI. I'm not a big fan of having to remove drivers. They have a tendency to hang around :mad:
