I'd like to thank BradleyW for this guide. I just spent six hours trying to install the drivers for my ASUS EAH5450 HD5450, and this was the solution.

For anyone Googling to solve the same problem as me, I tried multiple versions of the driver and received the following error messages: "The operation returned because the timeout period expired". "Driver Install: the installation failed." and "The driver selected for this device does not support this version of Windows."

After following this guide, I used Device Manager's "Browse my computer for driver software" >> "Search for driver software in this location". I pointed it at the latest version of the driver downloaded from ASUS's website.

Hey BradleyW, my processor is an AMD Athlon. What would you suggest as safe cleaning? Because you said not to try the guide if the cpu is amd. Which part(s) of your tutorial are safe to delete? Thanks a lot for your helpful guide. (you may have already answered it, but I read only the first 14 pages!)

What would be the alternative for people who has an AMD chipset and CPU? Because I will never forget when I ****ed up the things with ATIMan.

ATIman is fixed, it doesn't mess up AMD systems any more 7.0.2

Would anyone know how to permanently delete the registry entry HKEY_CURRENT_USER > ATI folder? I'm able to delete it, but upon restart it appears again. TIA.

I don't know why people bother with this stuff. You can just run the uninstaller, the things left behind don't impact performance. You don't even have to uninstall the drivers, you can just install the new drivers for your new video card and it will work fine.

1. Guide was made before uninstaller.
2. Uninstaller does not work for everyone. This is for those people.
3. Bye.
