BSOD upon 11.10 preview 3 removal

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hey OCNers,

I need help in removing the 11.10 prev 3 drivers. This is my first driver problem with AMD/ATI. Everytime I try to uninstall the prev 3 drivers I receive a 0x0000007e BSOD upon reboot.

Here is my normal driver upgrade process:

1. Uninstall CAP files
2. Express Uninstall CCC using Win7 uninstaller
3. Run CCleaner Reg Cleaner
4. Reboot
5. Run CCleaner Reg Cleaner again for good measure
6. Install new version of CCC (Express Install)
7. Install CAPs (if necessary)

So before step 5 upon re-entering windows I get the 7e BSOD and need to do a system restore.

I have even attempted to use ATI MAN v6.1.3 (newest version) and the same thing happens.

I was thinking that next I might try to install version 11.10 WHQL right on top of the preview drivers and then uninstall and reinstall using my normal upgrade process.

Do any of you have any ideas/suggestions/comments? I can use the help.

Thanks!!!!

I figured I would get the WHQL drivers. I know that it isn't much of a difference (if at all), but now that I can't uninstall them without issues I'd rather get rid of them now, than later.

Because based on my luck, if I don't deal with it now, I'll get stuck dealing with it when I don't really have the time to.

Okay, I will uninstall them again and once the error pops up I will follow your instructions and post back.

Give me 5 minutes!

Thanks!!!!

In my experiences with AMD drivers you don't need to uninstall re-install, just install over the old ones. Is what I've been doing since I got my 3870s never had any problems.

Have you tried doing it in Safe Mode?

Don't use the registry cleaner... just use the uninstaller, then before rebooting you install the new drivers, THEN reboot. Simple, always works.

The uninstaller leaves those registry entries behind for a reason you know... Leftover entries are not always just junk.

Well, its worse than ever! Everytime I boot into windows I get the BSOD 7e error. This started immediately after uninstalling 11.10 preview 3 and/or Cap 4.

I opened the event viewer, but I don't see a specific selection called Application Error.

Can you be more specific?

I really really really do not want to reinstall windows!~

Well, I am stumped. I can't even boot in to windows except in safe mode now. I ran Memtest 86+ just in case and passed with flying colors. I thought that 7e might be a memory bsod and just a bad coincedence that it happened at the same time that I uninstalled the preview drivers.

Oh well, any other ideas? I really don't want to have to reinstall windows
