Thinking of becoming a FORMER ATI user... - Page 3

post #21 of 57
ATI to the rescue, attacking posters cause of their bad experience with a company they have no real affiliation to other than they give them money.

Nice job guys, way to go.

The point was to see how many others faced similar issues AND if it was an issue that people with Nvidia chipsets encountered as well.

Try reinstalling windows...or maybe it's hardware related?

Most ATI/AMD driver issues are with multiple GPUs, you made sure to go through the whole process of cleaning out your old drivers before installing the new ones didnt you?

I've used both brands of cards off an on and have experienced about the same amount of issues from both sides. ATI/AMD generally has smaller issues that seem more common while nVidia's issues are much larger but aren't nearly as prevalent so people tend to blame the user rather than the company. Both brands have their advantages and I don't think switching would be a bad thing at all.

This is done once every two weeks, my apologies for not specifying. I also like how little is being done to help me try and resolve the issue and moreso being called an idiot (PEBCAK). If I wanted people to bash me, I would have badmouthed ATI in an ATI forum, I welcome constructive criticism but this is really just a bash session concerning the ATI users.

The only constructive things I've been told so far is to run memtest or use driversweeper with a clean driver install. I've run numerous diags (including memtest) and will try driversweeper. This is quite reminiscent of the atikmdag.sys error I had before, which was solved only by deleting everything ATI on my hard drive and installing ONLY the display driver with nothing else on there. This fix, however, has not worked for my DA2 problem and I'm hard-pressed to think its anything other than drivers when all my hardware passes diags. Help and advice is welcome, insults can be left at the door if you please

I think figuring out what the problem is first should be your priority instead of blaming the drivers. Otherwise you may find yourself with the same problem with your Nvidia card.
Brand loyalty is retarded, you just need to go with what best suits your needs.

Thank you, much more constructive advice than I'm getting from many folks in here.

You're taking way too much offense to this and putting words in peoples mouths. We're simply stating there ARE driver issues, however the issues you're having sounds like it is brought upon by the user itself. We're not saying you're an idiot because it is, we're saying don't switch over yet because it might be a resolvable issue in a simple reformat. It's possible you went through so much trial & error that there's just a mess of drivers and left over registry entries.

Before you switch, do you have another partition you can install Windows on and a game to be sure?

To relate to you, I installed 11.1 about a month ago I'd say. I had very large performance decreases, display crashes, etc. I uninstalled 11.1 and then installed 10.2 and CCC wouldn't open up, etc. Instead of messing with it I decided to do a reformat of Windows 7. I did not use Driver Sweeper or any 3rd party program. All I did was run the 10.12 SETUP.exe and then use Uninstall > Install options.

After the reformat I installed 11.2 drivers rather than 1, and everything is perfect. I've only had one crash and that was because hardware acceleration was enabled for a flash video. Is it pathetic that AMD's drivers crash on hardware accelerated flash videos? Yes. However, it's fine after being disabled.
