Computer Crashes after SP3 Installed - Display Driver RRS feed

  • Question

  • 32 Bit XP.  Tried multiple different Radeon video cards.  Updated the drivers and updated Catalyst Control Center.  I have a dual monitor setup.  But now whenever I go to rotate one of the monitors the computer reboots.  Certain other modifications to the display, i.e. changing resolution, causes this to occur as well.  This started as soon as I upgraded to SP3, and it is on multiple systems, all dells, but different models.  Please let me know what other details may be needed, and thank you in advance.

  • No luck, but just to reiterate, the computer works fine until you go to make a modification to the display settings.

    Old drivers and new drivers, old radeon software and new radeon software = same exact issues.

    If it were my machine, I would just reinstall a clean copy of windows, but unfortunately I can not do that in this scenario.

    Thanks again.

  • Try http://www.guru3d.com/category/driversweeper/
    I have had issues in the past with Radeon cards and Driver Sweeper seems to do a good job of removing everything associated with ATI. I understand your pain cause most of the time you end up having to reinstall the OS but driver sweeper has saved me a few times in the past.
    I do not know what graphics card it is but you can try to flash the BIOS of the video card if it is available. I would also try the BIOS for the PC as well.
