Question about Computers & Internet
Vista 64 Bit
4 GB OCZ RAM
I got a new Sapphire 4850 for Christmas and installed it. Booted it up, it was working fine, fan spinning, all that. I log into Vista to install the drivers, download the latest driver + catalyst package under Vista 64 bit on their website, started to install, and when the display driver was installing, I got - ''Driver Install: INF file not found'', along those lines. Windows installed a driver for me, which is what I'm using at the moment. I was able to install Catalyst itself just fine.
Prior to that, I used Driver Sweeper and Driver Cleaner in safe mode to get rid of all the drivers before installing new ones. I fear that was my mistake. I did it with the intention of making sure everything was ready, because I heard that driver conflicts can cause problems. Now I know that that was not necessary, and I think I got rid of something I shouldn't have. I've googled the problem, and other people have had it, with all different graphics cards, but the few solutions that were posted did not work. Please Help.
Physically uninstall the 4850. Now download and install "Revo uninstaller" (FREE). Use this tool to completely uninstall any and all software associated with the 4850. Next run system restore and restore your computer to a date prior to your original physical installation of the card. The computer should now re-start to it's condition before the 4850. Now you can begin a PROPER installation by first installing the SOFTWARE that came with the card and following the instructions to install the card afterward. Remember, Windows likes software FIRST.
P.S. If you want to run with the big dogs - carry a map.
