one thing..

Driver Version: 6.14.0010.6575 (English)


are you using drivers from sites such as Guru3d , that are in Beta testing and not from the ATI site itself?

I went to look up drivers for your card and found that ATI is only on 6.12 and since youre on 6.14 that must mean that you have beta drivers, This could be the cause of it, as they are not guaranteed to function...

Just a thought

Id suggest you dl the drivers from the ATI site directly to rule out the possibility of a malfunction in the ones you have

they can be found here

The display driver 6.12 is the one you need to download but before you install it, uninstall your old driver and reboot your machine. Donot try to insatll the driver over the one that is already on your computer.

While Id love to just say Go here. and follow this guide, I cannot
becuase for someone with a lack of knowledge, The entire process could seem daunting in itself.... therefore if you give me a few seconds, Ill go through it and post pictures of the entire procedure.... however, I am running Nvidia, So the whole finding the ATI component thing, MAy be a little trickier for you :thumbsup:

(Pictures to come...)

1. Go into the Control Panel and under the ADD/REMOVE SOFTWARE icon uninstall the ATI MultiMedia software and/or the ATI DVD software.

2. Uninstall the ATI drivers also found in the Add/Remove section. Once removed, it will prompt you to reboot....do so.

3. When returning to windows, the NEW HARDWARE FOUND wizard will come up and will tell you that it has found a new VGA card and will prompt you for drivers. Hit CANCEL!

4. Now, go to START - SEARCH - FOR FILES OR FOLDERS and do a search for all files and folders using the filename ati*.*
This search will normally give you 3 to 4 files found in your c:/windows directory and subdirectories (including the Windows/System directory). Select these files and erase them. Now go to your Recycle Bin and Empty your bin.

5. Next...time to go to your Registry. Go to START -- RUN -- regedit

Here go to key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -- SYSTEM -- ControlSet001 -- Control -- Video . Here there should be 4 entries. 3 of them are default Windows XP entries and the 4th one is put in by the ATI drivers. Expand each one by one until you see ATI entries. Once found, erase the entire key.

Now repeat the same step above for the ControlSet002 key and the CurrentControlSet Key. Normally, whenever you erase a key in the ControlSet001, XP automatically deletes it in the CurrentControlSet section too. So if the ATI key is not found in the CurrentControlSet section, don't worry about it.
Once all keys are deleted, proceed to the next step.

6. While still in the registry, go to the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -- SOFTWARE section. Here you should find an ATI Technologies key. Select it and delete it. In that same section, look for an Installed Options key. Expand it and there you should find another ATI Technologies key. Select it and erase it.

7. Still in the registry, go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER -- Software and there you should find another ATI technologies key. Select it and erase it. Once all this is done, close the registry. the registry is now clean.

8. Close all windows and reboot.

9. When in windows after the reboot the NEW HARDWARE FOUND WIZARD will pop up again. Cancel that. Now find the new ATI drivers that you have downloaded and extracted and run the SETUP file. Once complete, reboot and you are done. You may want to reinstall your ATI MMC software and DVD software if you use them. DONE!



5. Next...time to go to your Registry. Go to START -- RUN -- regedit


Here go to key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -- SYSTEM -- ControlSet001 -- Control -- Video . Here there should be 4 entries. 3 of them are default Windows XP entries and the 4th one is put in by the ATI drivers. Expand each one by one until you see ATI entries. Once found, erase the entire key.

i followed ur steps but there were some changes and then something blocked my way on finishing you steps
i did this:
removed ati from add/remove programs
(i dunno wats the difference between software and program)
then i did restart and when my system came back up it didnt prompt anything so i did what you told me to do after that
i deleted all the ati folders but i had many other ati files but i couldnt delete them... some were dll. and stuff i dont remember
then i went to regedit and from there i couldnt do anything casue i couldnt find HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -- SYSTEM -- ControlSet001 -- Control -- Video it just wasnt there so i did system restore and im downloading css right now again

Are installing just the drivers, or the drivers and the catalyst control center also?
