Hi All
Need to Remove ATI 10.6 & Install 10.4 Graphic Drivers on Two Ati 2900 pro Cross-fired Video cards. I need to go back to 10.4 drivers because the 10.6 drivers are Crashing while the 10.4 drivers work great no problems at all. Did a fresh install on windows xp and installed the newest ati drivers instead of the ones that were in the system before the fresh install.
The thing is that the ATI Catalyst and the window xp wizard see the 10.6 drivers and won't let the older 10.4 drivers supper seat the latest version. I found this and want to get a second opinion.
•Windows operating system
Delete Device Driver
Step 1
Open the Device Manager by clicking "Start" and then click "Run."

Step 2
Type "sysdm.cpl" and then go to the "Hardware" tab.

Step 3
Click "Device Manager" and then right-click the device of which driver you would like to remove.
(Note: You may have to click the plus sign expansion node next to the main category
of the device grouping to display the corresponding attached hardware.)

Step 4
Click "Uninstall" to remove the old driver.

Step 5
Click "OK" to confirm the action to remove the device. When finished, click "OK."

Delete Driver Package

Step 1
Click "Control Panel."

Step 2
Select "Add and Remove Programs.
Step 3
Select the driver associated with the device and then click "Uninstall."

Has anybody tried this step before and if so did it work?
Any Suggestions on how to remove the drivers will be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks Raner

What's wrong with trying the rollback option available in Device Manager on the Driver tab?

Hey Hamluis what's up
Ok did a roll back and got the original driver cd that came with the cards and I got the 8.4 drivers in, so it should be no problem updating to to the 10.4 drives. Thanks Raner
