Hi guys, i have a Radeon 9600xt in my computer right now. it has been running great up until yesterday. I updated the drivers and now no program that utilizes the graphics card runs. they all freeze up during mid use. I tried uninstalling the new drivers and installing the old ones but they will not delete. can someone please help me with my problem.
Thanks Guys
Rob

Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go. Go to http://www.drivercleaner.net/ and get Driver Cleaner (it is free). Make sure you have the good driver available to install when this is completed. Boot into save mode and run Driver Cleaner TWICE, each time deleting all that it finds. Then re-boot and install the good driver that was working before you did the update.

Yeah, as Austin sorta said, if the graphics ain't broke, don't install a new driver. New drivers are only needed if some new tech. comes out or if you update the hardware to newer stuff. If nothing was wrong with the previous driver, just forget the new one...for now.
