Updating ATI drivers...


Appologies if this is in the wrong section

Tomorrow ATI are due to release cat 9.5 - I havnt updated my drivers in a while and have been having a few issues recently, so have decided to try these out.

However, ive no idea what the current "proceadure" for updating ATI drivers is,

at a guess...

Uninstall ATI drivers via control panel


run Driver Cleaner.net (or similar) + safe mode


install new ATI's



However some people seem to suggest to just install the new driver set without doing *anything* - so im a tad confused as to which to do

Cheers for any info!

i7 3770k @ 4.4, MSI MPOWER, 290X CFX, 1200w Coolermaster Gold, Benq XL24, 16GB DDR 1600Mhz, SSD/1TB Data, Asus Xonar Essence, etc etc

I've tried both ways you have listed and noticed no problems either way.

I use driver cleaner pro after uninstalling the previous drivers- be it sound OR graphic card. Does the job.
