    Hi,

    i hope someone of you can help me.
    I installed yesterday the new 6.6 Catalyst on my System.
    I'm running a Athlon64 3800+ and Asus EAX850XT-PE under Win-XP Home.

    After deinstalling the old NGO drivers and cleaning with catalyst uninstaller, i tried to install the new 6.6.
    Close to the end of installation it showed a prompt that tells me to install the standard VGA-driver before setting up the new one.

    But the standard vga-driver is already running i think, also im not able to set up standard vga driver manually.
    I tried anything - booting in safe mode and deinstalling old files, deinstalling it from the hardware setup, cleaning the registry, usind Driver-Cleaner and so on.
    Nothing worked.

    Does anybody here know how to help me with this Problem?

    Thank you.
    I'm sorry for my bad english.

    Uninstall everything ATI and mobo related and also .NET Framework (if you have it). While in Safe Mode run Driver Cleaner and remove same again, then run CAB Cleaner. Still in Safe Mode install mobo drivers. Reboot, windows should detect new video hardware, cancel and then install Catalyst (.NET Framework first if you're using it) drivers. Sounds drastic but it works. Good luck

    EDIT: If upon reboot after mobo drivers windows detects the card as a "NGO" device then simply go to My Computer/Properties/Hardware/Device Manager and uninstall display device.

    No! you don't need to!

    I had the very same problem once. You need to press F8 (I believe, could've been an other F too) and select the bootup with standard windows vga driver option.

    Did the trick for me.

    Thank you for your hint.
    I've tried this already tonite, but in my case it won't help.
    I don't know why, but after booting i got the same error message as before.
