I'm tryin to update my ATI radeon 9000 video driver
what I've done so far/able to do ->
->Downloaded driver update
->Uninstall both the ATI driver and the ATI control panel

Finally I uninstall ATI radeon 9000 and have to restart my computer

When I try and run the computer in safe mode (hit F8 on the loading thang) It begins to load but then stops then after about 2-3 seconds a blue screen appears and have to restart to ->best known configuration...
Can anyone help me update this driver

What OS?
My brother's machine (2k Pro) has exactly the same problem with a 9700. I will be looking into it this weekend.

The problem you have is that when you uninstall the vid drivers, you have no vid drivers and thus no vid so you get the bsod. What you can do is put your OS installation disk in before you reboot. When you reboot, you have to watch for the hit any key to boot from Cd option. Hit any key and the drivers from the disk will be loaded which includes a vid driver that will let you have video, and thus no bsod. Then you can go in and put those new drivers in...doc

I beg to differ. Safe mode does not use any of the drivers. That is why this error is so puzzling.
