As title says Omega drivers has became a issue with my old rig with the 9200SE.<br>
I have been trying to find ways to resolve it, but I give up and now I need your help guys.<br>
First it all happened when I start to play Gunbound Revolution. I get this lousy blue screen, it has occurred with Omega Drivers from the last three releases.<br>
I Driver Cleaned evertime, then I tried to restore my computer back to a point in which I could have made a mistake. It made the issue worse, I get them same blue screen as I did with Gunbound I could not stay in Windows any longer as it tests and gives the blue screen.<br>
I don't know but its a file I recovered that may be causing the issue, but I have cleaned out the drivers and no go. And I restart with this problem:<br><a href="http://imagesocket.com/view/Clipboard0123f.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://content.imagesocket.com/thumbs/Clipboard0123f.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"></a><br><a href="http://imagesocket.com/view/100_10097e9.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://content.imagesocket.com/thumbs/100_10097e9.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"></a><br>
Now I'm using the issued ATI drivers, problem is they have issue no matter what version I use. All my games are capped to the lowest setting even if I change it, restart,etc. As they are not like that usually.<br>
And my Overclocking capabilities are cut.<br><br>
I do not know why Gunbound wont start, I do not know why my Omega drivers give me the same error with Gunbound. I do not know why my video settings are set to default whenever I play a game I want.<br><br>
It really sucks, as I do not have access to my high end rig anymore.<br>
So bored...<br>
Hopefully you guys can help me out. I'm considering to install the latest Vista beta if I can not get through.

Ok do the following please.<br><br>
1. Uninstall the ATI or Omega drivers for the Add/Remove panel.<br>
2. Go into your C drive and Delete the ATI File.<br>
3. Do this in Windows and in SAFE MODE :<br><br>
Installing Graphic card driver efficiently!!! When you Update your graphics cards drivers theres ways that you should go about it. Follow these simple steps below.<br><br>
1.Download and install ''Driver Cleaner'' Here:<br><a href="http://www.drivercleaner.net/professional.html" target="_blank">http://www.drivercleaner.net/professional.html</a><br>
2.Uninstall your Current Display drivers such as your ''ATI'' or ''Nvidia'' drivers.<br>
3.Now run ''Driver cleaner'' and depending on the Drivers you have you will have to select either ''ATI'' or ''Nvidia'' from the drop down menu. Only select the main title of the driver in the drop down such as just ''ATI'' or ''Nvidia''<br>
4.Once you have selected Your driver click on the ''Start'' button and this will now start the driver cleaning process. ( Do this twice to be sure )<br>
5.Now reboot your system and Download the latest Nvidia or ATI and go ahead and install them.<br><br>
Doing this avoids driver corruption and conflicts so you can now enjoy smooth gameplay.<br><br>
You may need to do this twice.<br><br>
If the above doesnt work do the above again but also use Registry mechanic to remove any old Registry entries left by the drivers found here : <a href="http://www.pctools.com/registry-mechanic/download/" target="_blank">http://www.pctools.com/registry-mechanic/download/</a>

I did this and the only progress I got was I did not recieve a blue screen when logging into Windows.<br />
But instead whenever I start a 3D App or change out of the default resolution I get the same god damn error.<br />
<br />
I'm starting to lose confidence here, in all my years of being a computer geek I never encountered this error.

Since I don't know your system specs I can only make a wild guess. Do you have an nVidia mobo? If it's a yes, here's what happened to me 2 weeks ago on a nF3+ATI 9250 AGP and it happened to a friend on an nF2+ATI 9600pro. <br />
The same symptoms as in your case, blue screens, games fresing and mostly a lot of artifacts while playing. The only solution I could find was reinstalling Windows and after the Win instalation is completed to install from the nForce drivers only the "SMBUS" and the "Audio Driver" components. Do not install GART or anything else 'cause it would not work.<br />
If you prefer to do this through driver cleaner be my guest, it's the same thing. Clean all the drivers, and when installing the nF drivers install only the ones above. Good luck!
