Hi,

I have a radeon 9800 pro, with the latest Catalyst drivers installed.

I am having some glitches with games, and have been told that reverting to the earlier driver shoulf fix them.

Is there any procedure I should be aware of while installing older drivers?

Should I do it in windows safe mode, for example?

Thanks.

I don't know why the catalyst drivers would cause you any problems unless the other hardware on your PC wasn't using the lates drivers. I would go to theor forum and ask around about your particular problem and I am sure it will get solved. The latest drivers normally make your system perform better in MOST cases.

Rockn, there is a problem with dynamic lighting in JK3, other players have told me that they fixed it by installing the older drivers.

A quick fix is not necessarily the best, i know, but I would rather just get it working for now and hope that it is fixed when the new catalyst comes out.

AcaCandy, Reverting the drivers to the ones that came with the card is exactly what I want to do. :)

But do you know if I need to uninstall the old ones first? And if so, how?

Thanks.

Well, I myself, normally just run the setup.exe program and let it cry about installing older drivers, I think most recommend removing them. I think ATI should have an add/remove option....at least my 7000 does.
