Hey man, awesome video. I've got a question, when I do the first stage and uninstall amd cat it changes the resolution half way through and the desktop becomes really small and all the windows are massive. Why is this? When I attempt to change my resolution it will not let me. Just remains at the lowest until I have installed a new driver

so wait you can just delete your graphics card and then just go to amd or nivida website and just install it?

driver sweeper has been replaced by a program called display driver uninstaller
Andhika Farhan (3 years ago)
what driver sweeper version that you use in this video?

So using driver sweeper can u completely fuck ur graphics card up doing this.  Like sweep the bios of it or something like that.  Ive heard this can happen.

You should point out that to run the driver sweeper it should be run in Safe Mode, your video doesn't mention that fact, though your text tutorial does, and the text steps are a tad different like not mentioning CCleaner (uninstall & registry clean) in the steps. Listening a few more times to your tutorial I picked up on running the registry clean in CCleaner (or even Auslogic Registry clean) seems that together they both clean fairly well. Don't get me wrong the tutorial (video&text) together are really on the money, never have understood why AMD gfx drivers are such a PITA in these days and times.  I 'spose AMD doesn't want to go to the trouble of completely cleaning older drivers in their new driver updates which seem to come out every few months, you would think they'd incorporate a better way.

It sometimes fails to remove some files, and needs a restart in safe mode to complete the removal.

since i have also amd processor will the express unistallation uninstall only the video driver or i have to uninstall them in the custom way and leave the other ones?
Paolo Sy-Quia (4 years ago)
I can't log in to safe mode, when i hold f8 it just goes black for a second then goes straight to the startup screen.

Use ''msconfig'' Type in the run box msconfig and select the safe mode in the boot tab section and restart.

At the 1st part where you use catalyst uninstaller I get a black screen which doesn't go away(I waited 20min) I can here sounds so the computer is still running normally in the background. I'd imagine a finish button has popped up but I can't see it because of the black screen so I had to do a hard shutdown. This is my 1st AMD GPU in years(7990) and compared to Nvidia's drivers AMD's are a mess(even vsync is broken, do they even test them before releasing them).

shut up vince vaughn  just kidding, thanks for the tutorial!

I have the same issue, and yes I can log into safe mode.
Real World Labs (5 years ago)
Yes, you should follow the same process. If the issues is caused by the drivers this will take care of it
Real World Labs (5 years ago)
Can you log into safe mode ?
For everyone it doesnt work, when you've uninstalled the driver in Windows usin amd uninstallation thingy, RESTART YOUR PC IN SAFE-MODE and in safemode run driver sweeper, this way will probably work.

I downloaded Driver Sweeper and it said it had an update. The Update is to install a new program called Driver Fusion (which I did) and it seems to be pretty good. Just wanted to pass this along. **Peace
