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.

Hi Trifon,
you are detecting a known problem for 32 bit operating systems.
The problem for those system is that they can manage maximum 3 Gb of RAM.
If you want all of your RAM used you have to install a 64 bit operating system. Windows 7 has also a version for 64 bit as well as windows xp (but is not good supported) and windows vista.

Lag lag


Have you tried to review the systems requirements for Windows 7? In case you don't, try to review this system requirements and see if your PC falls in. If not, then its the primary cause of the "lag" computer.

If you want to run Windows 7 on your PC, here's what it takes:
  • 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
  • 1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
  • 16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
  • DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver

I have a compaq presario c700 running windows vista. On my previous laptop I was able to record successfully using Audacity. Now, however, recordings are very poor - the sound comes and goes, and is of...


Stuart, make sure have the System requirements Here are the recommended memory (MB or GB of RAM) and processor speed (GHz) requirements for using Audacity with different versions of Vista:

Version Recommended RAM/
processor speed Minimum RAM/
processor speed Vista Home Basic 2 GB / 1 GHz 512 MB / 1 GHz All other Vista versions 4 GB / 2 GHz 1 GB / 1 GHz
Note that the minimum system requirements as defined above (i.e. those that allow the operating system to run, ignoring what is required to run applications) are much greater than for Windows XP. If your computer does not significantly exceed these minimum requirements then you may have problems doing more intensive tasks in Audacity such as recording for long periods or editing a large number of long tracks, or may need to close other programs and processes before you can do so. Please be aware that the cheapest "deals" for new Vista machines may well only include the Vista Home Basic Edition and system specifications little in excess of the Vista minimum requirements.
Other things being equal, 64-bit versions of Vista will require more RAM than 32-bit versions. While some users report Audacity runs fine on 64-bit Vista with 2 GB RAM, this depends on the number of tracks being worked with and the number of other programs and services running on the computer. Memory is now very inexpensive. The general recommendation for 64-bit Vista is to install a minimum of 4 GB RAM - and for very best performance, install the maximum RAM that your motherboard supports.

If you meet the min system requirements. Uninstall your sound card drives and try the beta version for Windows Vista.

I have installed 4 GB of RAM but it only shows 3 GB RAM


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

Blue screens are software related errors. You would need to try to start the PC in protected mode and remove the drivers from the registry and/or the startup. If possible, run the system restore and put it back to a prior date before you tried installing the drivers. It's possible you may have a card that will not work with your system.

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.
