i started with ATI catalyst driver 4. somewhat. this only goes back to 5, which has never worked for me.
why would a newer version work, if the newest doesn't.
thx anyway

I have a Relisys 1730 which ATI won't recognise as widescreen, it will adjust manually up to 5.12 then with 5.13 it takes a few reboots before it " remembers " the settings and above this it won't remember them period. On another PC with a Relisys 1720, ATI will recognise the monitor as widescreen, install any set of drivers and remember the settings straight off

Are you using any software that stops the install of programs(eg some AVs or anti spyware may be bothering the install it can happen, try installing in safe mode).

The catalysts are the best drivers going once you get them up and running which 99% of the time is fine its just its particularly sensitive to gremlins. Have you always had the ATI card or did you have something else before.

i couldn't uninstall in safe mode, due to some kind of error which i attached below(windows installer)

i tried to reinstall without uninstalling(i know), and got these messages:severe INF error Video Driver not found, after which the setup was unable to complete the installation ... message followed.

i'll also add a pic of what the top of my screen looks like in safe mode(can't hurt right).

Do you have a valid XP cd?

If so, place it in your CD ROM drive and follow the instructions below

Start > Run > cmd then type

sfc /scannow (note the space)

let this run untill you get a message saying it is complete.

sfc - system file checker, retrieves the correct version of the file from %Systemroot%\System32\Dllcache or the Windows installation source files, and then replaces the incorrect file.

If you want to see what was replaced, right click My Computer > manage, expand event viewer > system.

Try this you might be missing something windows end.
