Sounds like windows being windows. I have a sapphire x1600 pro and have no problems.

Whats a good way to fully remove all ATI drivers without a full system format. I was previousley using a nvidia 6800 LE Graphics card and had no problems what so ever only reason I upgrade was for the extra memory.

UGHH just found this web page pretty much states if your going from a Nvidia to a ATI pretty much do a full format other wise problems. DAM!!

Heres a copy of the first section

Note: If you're coming off an nVidia product, you're going to have to uninstall the Forceware or Detonator drivers prior to installing the Catalyst software. To that end, run Driver Cleaner to get rid of your nVidia files. Of course, nothing can top formatting. nVidia drivers are notorious for staying in your system even after you wrack your brains trying to remove them. So if you run into a bunch of problems after upgrading from nVidia (yes, I mean upgrading Wink) then I would suggest a full reformat of the Windows partition (which for many is the only partition on the drive).

Yeah I think you have to install a previous driver for it to work without a hitch, I havea  catch 22, can't play SPLINTER CELL DOUBLE AGENT (with good visuals) unless I install the new drivers,

The catch is that missing icons thing just winds me up. let me know if anyone hears anythin more

It seams to me that there is a problem with the latest Catalyst 7.8 driver because it only happens whe I install this one. I went back to the driver that came with the card no problems there the brought the latest Australian PC Authority magazine which has drivers on the disc that comes with it on this one was the the Catalyst 7.6 driver which im currently running with no problems so ?? where do you go from here.
