    Was the card working properly before the update? If so don't mess with success. You may need to download driver cleaner pro, run that to get rid of your current driver completely. Before you wipe out the old driver go to ATI or Omega which ever you prefer (driverheaven.com), download the new driver to your desktop. Then run DCPro, reboot, and then install fresh new driver. Follow all prompts then reboot again. Done! ATI suggests that you only need to update drivers if you are having problems. Good Luck! :grinthumb

    Just curious. When you uninstalled the old driver, did you use Add/Remove Programs to uninstall it? Sometimes people make the mistake of trying to uninstall through Device Manager.
