    Do you guys just install this over the 1/9? Or uninstall 1/9, boot into safe mode, run driver sweeper, & then install this new driver?



    I am basically asking if the later step is necessary. Does anyone really know? Or it just to be on the "safe" side.

    No, it's not necessary but I do sometimes run driver sweeper.

    wth? this driver still says 11.12 and the same packaging number as 1/9 drivers (8.921.2-120104a-131222E-ATI).

    I am looking at the catalyst control centre (information and software section).








    edit: actually wait, 8.921.2. So I guess the .2 is different than before? Anyone confirm? I am sure it is. Just making sure (paranoid).

    So this is the same driver from the 9th with a different date on it because they are EXACTLY the same size.

    WTH is wrong with this company?

    All i do is, Programs & Features, double-click the ATi Install Manager, select to uninstall all, then after the reboot, i install the new ones :)

    They still not updated the link yet :(

    They havn't put this new driver up, the link is still for the 9th driver. :p

    I really want to try new drivers in one last ditch attempt to get these working before I send them back.
