Ok....I'm wondering if there is software that removes all GRAPHICS drivers from you pc. I DLed drivercleaner by driverheaven and it removes all drivers (I think) according to which manufacturer that you select. I have a new X1300XT ATI card, my old card was ATI, my onboard video is NVidia. Also, my Ethernet adapter is NVidia, so I don't want to run Drivercleaner if it will remove my Ethernet drivers when I select NVidia. The reason I'm wondering this is because I installed card today, then uninstalled the ATI software via the "ATI software uninstall utility" under add/remove programs. Then when I rebooted, everything was in black and white, which I've never seen before. Also, I use my TV as a monitor using the S-Video output. When the found new hardware wizard appeared upon reboot, I let it do it's thing, assuming that it was for the new card. It was actually for the onboard, becuase when I rebooted, the screen was still black and white. I then uninstalled the display driver, rebooted, then installed the catalyst 6.10 driver and CCC. What bothers me is that when I went to regedit to do a few optimizations on the ATI software that boots with windows, there were the NVidia drivers all there. Also under start>control panel, there was the NVidia NView desktop manager. Well, long story short, I deleted the registry keys, rebooted, and the drivers didn't load, but the NView icon still appears under the control panel, AND my system boots with the HP and windows XP logos in black and white, then magically changes to color when it gets to the password screen. So what I guess I need to know is how to completely remove all video drivers so that I can do a clean install of Catalyst 6.10. Also, I had issues with yellow artifacts surrounding the 3D cube in ATItool, so I've been unable to OC yet. I posted the log file with the thread: Which OCing app to use?<br />

If anyone knows what driver cleaning software to use or how to do this manually, or knows why the artifacts are popping up with factory clock speeds, please help me!!!!! Thanks for the help, this forum rules!

I know about this, and I was thinking excactly the same.<br />
I'm sorry, but I don't think there's any solution to that.

Well I fixed that problem, Drivercleaner lets you pick whether to clean NVidia display or NVidia Ethernet (NForce) drivers.
