    I recently had a program that uninstalled old driver for you. Instead, it unistalled my current radeon drivers. I cant use the tv feature, the multimedia player, or the guide. The graphics are also alot slower. I tried reinstalling them but i got a message sayin to reinstall a standard display adapter. I have also tried doing it through the device manager but the drivers dont show up cause there not there. Does anyone know how i can completly reinstall these drivers or anything that can help me?Also, for some reason my system restore doesnt work so thats not an option.

    thanx in advanced.

    Fully uninstall the card and all the drivers, install the standard VGA one included with Windows. Then re-install the ATI stuff.

    How do i do that? I cant find the drivers in the device manager. As far as i can tell, there are no ati drivers installed. I get a message every 20 mins or so that tells me there is no 3d card installed. I think its from direct X. Also, how would i install the windows vga driver?

    Hmm, well that can't be good:) try right clicking on the desktop, going to properties -> settings -> advanced -> adapter and then clicking on the properties -> drivers there.

    Maybe a look in Device Manager in Safe Mode will reveal something..
