Hi everyone, I'm having some video card trouble... here's the story: I was installing the latest Catalyst drivers for my 9600 pro a few weeks ago, I did the regular process that you're supposed to do, but something went wrong in the installation. So I decided to restart and try to install it again. I did that, but it still didn't work, so I thought I should try to install the old Catalyst's, so I uninstalled what I had of the newly installed drivers. I restarted, and after the BIOS/Windows booting screen came on (with the blue loading bar), but the Windows start screen did not show up. I had a few friends come over and try to help me fix it, but there wasn't any luck. Thankfully, I had an old nVIDIA card lying around, and I put that in, and it worked fine. Now today, I got a new graphics card to replace the 9600 (X1300 Pro) and I still have that ATi problem. I tried removing everything ATi related in my computer. I used the ATi uninstall program, Driver Cleaner, RegSupreme, manually deleting ATi folders, I tried deleting some atisomething.something files in system32, but new ones just went back in there. I tried all the F8 options, Safe Mode freezes after a few seconds, VGA mode doesn't work, etc....Now I'm stumped. http://www.techspot.com/vb/showthread.php?t=5783&highlight=black+screen This guy has the exact same problem as me. What I think I can do is just buy an nVIDIA card and not mess with it ever again... but I'd like to fix it. Can anyone help? Thanks!
