Can't get video card drivers to install

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I just got a new (to me) 5850, and when in safe mode I try installing the ati drivers both regular and beta, both give me the error "Failed to load detection driver" . I can install the drivers manually, however there is no catalyst control center and in regular windows the system moves sluggishly and BSODS.

Anyone have any ideas? thanks

Remove all previous drivers (ati or nvidia), go to windows in normal mode and install the proper drivers for the 5850.

Install in normal mode

There is a DDU app (Display Driver Uninstaller) on G3D AMD Drivers section of their forum which does a good job of removing old driver traces (Run that in safe mode)

Then return to normal mode and install the drivers
