Driver Install INF Error

P5E Motherboard
Vista 64 Bit
Q6600 Processor
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.

Thank you.

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.

Wont to upgrade graphic card my p.c has 2gig max ram in it wonts should i upgrade to to preform its best cheers mike


Depends on what kind of hardware you have
-Memory- 2 gb ram is "ok" if you use windows XP but if you have Vista or Windows 7 you should have a minimum of 4gb ram.
-Processor- if you have a Dual core processor you are ok, if you have a p4 or p3 you dont want to waste money on a new graphics card because it will not help you get better games, your processor and memory will slow you down instead.
So my advice is, if you have a OK computer, go ahead with buying a new graphics card if you computer is old and slow, DONT buy a new card! put your money on +2gb ram instead (cheap,and gives you more benefits) or maybe buy an "upgrade package" with new motherboard-memory-processor.

I installed 4 Gig of RAM memory but only 3.25 shows up.\r\nis there a test I can run to see if the memory cards are working correctly? Thanks. Paul


It sounds like you are running a 32 bit operating system XP, Vista, or Windows 7 (32).
The 32 bit Operating Systems are only able to see and use about 3Gb of RAM. To use a greater amount you will need a 64 bit OS (either Windows XP/64 or Windows 7/64) or one of the open source 64 bit operating systems.

    Any 32bit OS can only read up to 3.5GB of RAM. In order to read additional ram you must have a 64BIT OS.

    More ram and vdeo card


    it sounds as if your MoBo is seeing the video adapter as a source of ram. if that is the case, then installing memory in units of 1Gb will cause a stick to not be seen, therefore utilized. you may want to refer to you manual for memory limits and poosible comparibility issues. they are usually quite in depth. also, make sure that they are all the same make model and speed. these issues have wreaked havoc on the prettiest of pc's.
