Don't like the snow? You can make a bookmark with the following text instead of a url: javascript:snowStorm.toggleSnow(). Clicking it will toggle the snow on and off.

Installation woes for my new video card.

Look! It's me again!
Soooo.

Installed the new video card.

RADEON X800 PRO/GTO.
Yeaa.
I installed the drivers off the nice shiny cd they gave me, after uninstalling my Nvidia 6600.

"Windows explorer has encountered an error and needs to shut down"

Any help?

    Doing a fresh install would most likely solve your problem, but if you don't like that idea then you can try booting into safe mode and using Driver Cleaner Pro to remove whatever was left over by forceware.

    Also: download the newest catalysts from ATI as the CD ones are probably ancient.

    I tried the safe mode option.
    Now windows loads and doesnt crash.
    But it takes ages to load and I tried to alt+tab out of a program and the screen went black before flickering to the desktop.
    Weird..


    I'd do a fresh install, but I have stuff I cant back-up. No burner. :(

    Also, I can click on the icon for Catalyst Control Center, and it doesn't load.

    You could also try a repair installation, though uninstalling catalysts+using driver cleaner pro and reinstalling catalysts should work.
