    Unless you have been using some deep tweaker tool or unofficial driver package there's no problem what so ever in installing over a previous driver.

    Wether it helps that game or not is an entirely different matter.

    can you do a driver rollback if you unistall that? i figure that if in istall over and it doesnt work right, i can just roll back and be alright?

    Clockwork is right, with the proceedure he outlines it will work perfectly every time.

    I do it this way every time (unless I am really ambitious and decide to reformat):

    1)Uninstall Control Panel

    2)Reboot

    3)Uninstall Drivers

    4)Reboot

    5)Install new drivers

    6)Reboot

    7)Install new Control Panel

    8)Reboot

    9)Choose all my resoution/d3d/opengl settings

    10)Reboot one final time.


    It might be overkill rebooting so much, but I have never had a bad driver install this way.

    I always uninstall though the controll pannel all the old drivers and then delete all the ATI stuff in the regedit and reboot and then I install the new driver and then the control pannel.

    Need Help Installing 3.5's

    i've heard many mixed opninions on this topic. do i need to uninstall my old drivers first then install? my friend just installed right over his old drivers and BHD works fine. i posted in the 3.5 cat discussion numerous times, but everyone was too busy complaining. i want to upgrade because some BHD missions hang and Collin McRae Rally 3 demo hangs as soon as i get into a race w/ 9700 pro device driver failure message upon reboot.
    here are my specs if they help:

    P4 2.4Ghz
    Radeon 9700 Pro 128mb
    Catalyst 3.1
    Direct X 9.0a

    i should add, i hate uninstalling drivers, i've tried it 3times, and fcked up my old computer 3 times w/ the driver cleaner.
Working...
