ATI Drivers refuse to install correctly.

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Yo,

Having some problems installing any ATI catalyst drivers for my 5850(s). Until today I've been using the 10.10e drivers on my ASUS 5850 without any issues, but my second Sapphire 5850 arrived earlier, switched cards without any problem so then proceeded to flash my new Sapphire card to an ASUS bios as the clocks are locked to a max of 775 for the core, and been having some problem with afterburner when setting the EnableUnofficialOverclocking to 1. Flash went fine, card booted up fine so decided to update my drivers to the 11.1 ones, and that's where my problems start. Before installing I uninstalled the old drivers and ran driver sweeper.

When I try to install the 11.1 drivers I get the "installation complete (warnings occurred during installation). View log for details." message, and viewing the log (which I've attached) shows some parts don't have a "succeed" tag, so I tried again using the same drivers and have the same problem. But whats even more annoying is that when I try to install the old drivers that worked fine before I get the same message and the drivers fail to install. At first I thought it was the new card causing problems, so switched back to my ASUS but the problem persists.

Anybody got any ideas on what could be causing this?

Cheers,

Man if I had a penny for everytime someone had problems after using driver sweeps.....I would be.......

Anyhow, uninstall driver, remove one card, install new driver. Make sure everything runs fine. Install second card and enable CF.

Uninstall again, then boot to safe mode, run drivesweeper or whatever (yer stuck with this method now). Some dll's or what not didn't get removed last time it looks like. You need to confirm that standard vga adapter is listed for you cards before trying to install the new drivers. Usually I just uninstall, reboot, confirm standard driver, if ok, then install new driver.

The 2 cards aren't running in CF yet (waiting on parts for new build), just trying out each card one at a time. But have tried unistalling the driver, switching cards then reinstalling the driver and still get the same thing. Also tried flashing back my Sapphire card to it's original BIOS but still no luck. To be honest I'm completely stumped, not sure if the ATI driver isn't recognizing my hardware after switching up the cards, and windows 7 just displays them as "standard VGA graphics adapter".

You can try clearing your assembly cache.

The issue OP is facing is genuine and hopefully some of the suggestions here will help. But I am miffed at the fact that I never had driver issue, but seems a small number of people does. I switched from nvidia to two different types of AMD card and had to do driver install every time. Did not have one iota of issue. I did use driver sweeper when I went from nvidia to AMD. I am just curious if rebooting was done after uninstall and after install.

Followed the instructions, but there weren't any ATI keys to get rid of.

Driversweeper doesn't show any more files to be removed, and now when I try install the drivers it tries to detect the hardware and jumps straight to the finished screen without installing anything.

Also when I try to uninstall the ati install manager it says I'm missing files in the c:/ATI folder which I assume that driversweeper removed.

Take out your flashed card and see if it installs correctly. Try using the .exe not install from the extracted directory.

Was one of the first things I tried, and I normally install using the setup exe anyway. I just think somethings gone horribly wrong when uninstalling the old driver, and seeing as I'm probably going to be doing a fresh OS install tomorrow anyway, I can probably do a quick one tonight with my current hardware and start from scratch and see how that goes. If it still does it, then it's either a problem with the driver package, although they've been fine before, or the hardware, which means 2 GPUs aren't working properly, which I seriously doubt.

I'll post back if it was successful, reinstalling then uninstalling the drivers is getting me no where.

This is why I recommend against Driver Sweeper. I've seen tons of issues.

If you have a system restore point you can go back to, do that.

If not try what I posted here: http://www.overclock.net/12297725-post8.html
