Well for some reason my PC in general has been acting slow and lagging alot. So I did the normal, defragged, cleared old system restore points, ran ATF Cleaner, checked for viruses/malware, and ran some online tests. That helped for a bit, but then I specifically began to lag when I would play Call of Duty4. So I went to upgrade my GFX Card drivers thinking that that was the problem. I downloaded the full Catalyst Software Suite directly from the ATI site, and began to install it. I then get a Severe warning that says the following:
Setup did not find a driver compatible with your current hardware or operating system. Setup will now exit.
I tried downloading just the Display Driver and I get the same error. Then I looked in my Add/Remove programs and there is nothing there at all for ATI. It now appears that whatever was ATI was completly uninstalled. Now I have no idea what to do, any help is highly appreciated. My specs are below as well. If you need anything else, don't hesitate to ask.

Thanks again,
MoNsTeReNeRgY22


Here are my Specs:
Manufacturer: Custom
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo CPU 6600 @ 2.40GHz (2 CPUs)
Memory: 2046MB RAM
Hard Drive: 250 GB
Video Card: ATI Radeon X1950 Pro
Monitor: Samsung SyncMaster 731BF
Sound Card: Realtek HD Audio output
Operating System: Windows XP Media Center Editon SP2

I'd try uninstalling it on device manager, letting your computer detect it again and directing it to the new drivers

I would uninstall the card...using Device Manager...reboot and see what happens. Is the ATI Uninstall utility present in Add/Remove Programs?

If XP doesn't reinstall the drivers automatically, I would use the CD accompanying the card to install all anew.

Hi all and thanks for the replys.

One question though, does Windows have a built in Driver Cleaner like in the SS at that link provided? If it does, I dont know how to access it.
