How To: Remove Your AMD GPU Drivers (New - 2016) - Page 27

post #261 of 447
I just recently use AMD's uninstall utility along with ATIman because After installing 13.5 beta and then having to go to 13.4 I did the normal uninstall through CCC and after a week or so started having issues with 2 BSODs showing atikmpag as the issue. Also Google chrome stopped working and FRAPS, ORIGIN and CCC would crash when opened. After I ran the 2 uninstall programs and reinstalled 13.4 everything worked normally again. So there is a lot to the proper removal of these drivers.

No there isn't. All you do is run the darn driver setup, choose install or uninstall. I've been doing this a longtime and I've been overclocking to hell and back leading a lot of benches and I've never had to scour through the registry nor use atiman to install/clean drivers.

I have no idea Topgearfan why you used both tools together. Its one or the other.
I just run the amd uninstaller from the desktop then reboot and install new drivers.

Here is how the Official uninstaller works(on my system): some stuff remains however ALL(afaik from my system) of the remaining is overwritten cleanly(100% success rate so far on 50+ passes) in the install process of the new driver. Some people have reported issues with the app however so nobody can call a Case Closed as of yet.

Well clearly it was a must for my system and in many others, but hey if it works for you then keep on doing it that way.

I honestly ran both just to see how they worked and what they did as far as removal of items. I will not run them both together next time.

We have been here before. Leave people alone. The guide has resolved many issues for many people and that's why people use the guide. Either use the guide or leave. I don't always need my guide either....but when I've had issues, this guide has saved me.

I can't confirm, but if I was to guess, I'd say yes there is a chance.

Good response, just like every other thread that has helped people out if you don't want to use it, then leave. I for one have found this thread to be a very helpful work around.

But can I use ATIman if I have an AMD CPU or will ATIman delete my chipset drivers?
