I'm having (surprise!) problems with an ATI PCIe card crashing video on my XP-SP3 box.

Fed up, I want to remove this thing and throw it away and revert to the on-board video which is adequate to my needs.

I want to strip ALL video drivers and related software off the machine and start clean with a new driver for the native video chip.

Somewhere -- maybe here -- I heard of a freeware download that would find and remove all video drivers, but I can't remember what it was. I used it on another machine and was surprised to see all the stuff it found after I had supposedly removed it.

Can anyone help me out?

Thanks!

Why not just go to Add/Remove Programs and uninstall all of the ATI Catalyst stuff.. always worked well enough for me. ;)

It doesn't do it.

That's what I did previously...but when I ran this program, it found an amazing amount of junk left in from not only that ATI/Catalyst garbage, but every card I had ever used in the system, even though I had had "uninstalled" it and run registry cleaners, etc., etc.

Ever heard of Revo Uninstaller?
Its a good bit of software :)

And stay away from Registry Cleaners unless you want to do harm to your system.

I'll check it out. I think the specific one I was looking for was different and aimed specifically at video cleanup, but this one might work, too.
