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 DO NOT
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.
