Why can't I install ATI 4.10

Well I have tried it four times now, to no effect. System keeps rebooting, until the "Last Known Good Config" screen comes up. Then I go back to my original setup. Is it an unstable WindowsXPHome that I don't see? It is slight O/C'ing?

Oh well, back to ATI 3.6

try 3.10 or 3.7 if you have not done so already... both of these are pretty stable configs :)

btw not sure why it keeps rebooting...

turn off reboot on error thinger in your control panel > system and try again...

Did you use the Ati Uninstaller in the Add/Remove Programs to get rid of any left over files first?

The 4.1 install hosed me so bad I had to re-install a hard disk image. It was my fault. I did not uninstall old catalyst or turn off the background applications.

After the image backup I tried again and disabled all of my background programs but did not do an uninstall of old drivers. It worked fine.

The 4.1 shows no speed or stability improvement over 3.10 but the colors seem to be more "vibrant" in games.

Worth the upgrade.

Just for reference - when you upgrade your drivers for ATi, you are supposed to uninstall the old ones first. It has been known to cause problems if you dont.

edit: Not with the installation of new drivers, but with games.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
