Problems with ATI Catalyst above 6.5 x64 edition?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am unable to get a catalyst program above 6.5 x64 edition that will run BF2 and BF2142. Other games will run on the updated catalyst programs but I like to play Battlefield games and don't want to give up the game just to get a new catalyst download with better features. When trying out the new catalyst programs the Battlefield gamea acts like they want to load, but then I am kicked back to the windows screen. I don't understand why it will not let me run the games? I am shocked that ATI hasn't had other people with the same problems as me and I hope that they open up their eyes really soon before they have a mob of Battlefield fanatics at their doorstep. I run the Battlefield games at maximum quality and everything and I think that could be one of the problems because if I'm correct, Catalyst 6.6 had problems running BF2 at certain resolutions as well as AA and AF.

I would use the most up to date versions of the Driver but make sure you are doing this when installing it :

Installing Graphic card driver efficiently!!! When you Update your graphics cards drivers theres ways that you should go about it. Follow these simple steps below.

1.Download and install ''Driver Cleaner'' Here:
http://www.drivercleaner.net/professional.html
2.Uninstall your Current Display drivers such as your ''ATI'' or ''Nvidia'' drivers.
3.Now run ''Driver cleaner'' and depending on the Drivers you have you will have to select either ''ATI'' or ''Nvidia'' from the drop down menu. Only select the main title of the driver in the drop down such as just ''ATI'' or ''Nvidia''
4.Once you have selected Your driver click on the ''Start'' button and this will now start the driver cleaning process. ( Do this twice to be sure )
5.Now reboot your system and Download the latest Nvidia or ATI and go ahead and install them.

Doing this avoids driver corruption and conflicts so you can now enjoy smooth gameplay.
