  1. I just installed a set of new drivers for my ati radeon hd 5870. it is version 10.4. After i installed it, i had all sorts of errors, such as applications not running with a weird error about the dll and point not found! i tried a system restore, but it said that my c partition is corrupt, and i have to scan it and check for errors and i got a blue screen. This happens every time i scan it! Also, the drivers didnt install properly, Something about Microsoft C++ redistriputible not installed properly. is that important?? will i still be able to play games? And yes, i did unistall my old drivers before installing new ones. I am wondering if i should reformat. :(

    Im using Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit.
    Ati radeon hd 5870

    Microsoft C++ redistriputible provides DLLs for some programs to use. Win/7 64bit is tricky to find the correct download.
