remove AMD graphics drivers, all traces?

5 posts in this topic

just taken stock of my new 7970 replacing my 6870, i remember having issues last time i upgraded to my 6870 re remnants of old drivers causing me issues and had to eventually reinstall windows .

are there any decent tools out there that will clean my PC free of all AMD GPU drivers stuff?

Thanks

I use this* 'sometimes' but only if I run into problems

Upgrading the 2 cards you talk about shouldn't need anything more than changing cards

*If you do run into problems, save this in notepad as cleaner.bat and run it after uninstalling the drivers, instructions are given (Enable 'Show file extensions' so you don't save it as a txt file)

I've used Driver Fusion before successfully. Just the free version will do; you don't need the paid one.

I suggest a screwdriver, which you can use to install a new hard drive. :laugh:
