If AODDriver2.sys is still present and the software/device isn't present and the driver
isn't needed - then please do this (thanks to jcgriff2):
Bring up elevated Admin cmd prompt -
START | type cmd.exe | RIGHT-click on cmd.exe | "Run as Administrator" | type/ paste the following -
where /r c:\ /f /t AODDrive*.* > 0 & start notepad 0
It may take a few minutes.
A Notepad will open wth the results. That will state the location of all OverDrive drivers.
Please post the results in your next post.
- create a System Restore point.
- create a System Repair disc and ensure that it works. To do this, go to Start...All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc
- un-install all ATI video stuff using Control Panel...Programs...Un-install a program (this may make the next 3 steps unnecessary - if so, just continue on).
- check in services.msc to see if there is an AOD service. If there is, set it to "Disabled" for the startup type.
- then disable any startups that name AODDriver2.sys using Autoruns (free from here: Autoruns for Windows
- rename AODDriver2.sys to AODDriver2.BAD (it's probably in C:\Program Files\ATI Technologies\ATI.ACE\Fuel\amd64 )
- reboot and see if that fixes the problem(s). Check in C:\Windows\System32\drivers (or the other folder) to be sure that it stays renamed.
- install fresh video drivers using the procedure here: ATI video cards - DRIVER ONLY installation procedure
install the full Catalyst Control Center package!!!
If the system is unable to boot,
boot from the System Repair Disc to the Command Prompt option.
- Rename AODDriver2.BAD to AODDriver2.sys
ren c:\Program Files\ATI Technologies\ATI.ACE\Fuel\amd64\aoddriver2.BAD c:\Program Files\ATI Technologies\ATI.ACE\Fuel\amd64\aoddriver2.sys
- Then reboot from the System Repair Disc again - this time into the System Restore option.
Reset the system to the System Restore point that you set previously.
