i got new drivers for my 9700 pro (catalyst 3.9) from ati.com and have a problem.

i uninstalled my drivers for my 9700 pro and i was prompted to restart. then after booting i was propmted to restart again. and after the second reboot, it made it all the way to thw windows screen and it loaded and then the com just hung. it was still on but wasn't showing anything on the monitors and they shut off. what can i do. i need to use my computer tonight and right now i'm running safe mode w/ networking support. can anyone please help me?!?!?!!?

Start>All programs, Accessories, system tools, system restore..


restore to a previous point (b4 u installed the drivers)..do what u need to do..and try to reinstall them later---after you remove the others a little better (there's an ati util in add/remove progs to do it)

You could also uninstall display drives in control panel, reboot run ATI uninstall.exe. Boot to safe mode (w/out net support) and follow the instructions for driver cleaner.
