View Full Version : screen goes black on boot,need reg cleaner

16-11-08, 09:56
I need a register cleaner to get rid of all my graphics card settings, i remember recalling the software that deletes all the files/registry drivers. Driver sweeper does not work with it, only removes files but not everything.

Everytime i install ATI drivers, screen goes black in windows until i driver clean it which disables the ati driver.

I dont want to format:)

1. Use Catalyst Uninstaller (http://www.tombraiderhub.com/download/cat-uninstaller.zip) to remove old drivers before installing the new ones. Then reboot, then install new drivers.

2. Run Diagnose.exe (http://www.tombraiderhub.com/download/diagnose.exe) and post the report. Do you have e.g. RAdmin or WinVNC installed (remote administration tools)?

Ok your right because formatting didn't work.

Formatting always works! Don't mix formatting with system restore/recovery :)

Boot in Safe Mode and use Catalyst uninstaller.
Ignore "New Hardware found..." message.
Download and install MS NET2.0 Runtime Environment.
Ignore "New Hardware found..." message.
Download and install latest Catalyst for your video board.

Ok i found the problem, CCC changed the setting to put the frequency way too high for my 22nch screen to cope with. So i had to hook up my graphics card to a tv which worked!!! and went into CCC and set it to DVI reduced frequency and changed a bunch of settings and stuff. And now it works:)

SOOOO MANY PEOPLE HAVE THIS PROBLEM, like there is 17 pages on ati forums about this issue!

EscondeR, its the BEST feeling not RMA'ing a card! ill be in time to play TRU!!!

Check the limiter to be set to "Monitor supported frequencies only" in Display Advanced properties and in Catalyst Control Center :)

20-11-08, 09:26
Thats what i did in ccc:), i only had access on my old tv. safe mode doesnt do anything..

20-11-08, 10:05
Well... having an LCD display you can safely limit frequency to 75Hz and forget about it :)

21-11-08, 23:07
ummm ok?:confused:

22-11-08, 14:09
Either Catalyst CC display frequency settings or Display Properties > Settings > Advanced settings > Display > Frequency, set to 75Hz. Press OK button.
