Hi,
Remove the driver in Control panel > Add or remove programs. Then reboot - tap F8 during the boot process - choose VGA mode in the menu that comes up. Reinstall the driver and reboot.

You'll find a new driver here. Uninstall the "old" software for xpress 200 in the control panel - reboot. After installing the new driver - reboot again.

Do you have administrator rights on that computer? Are you the only one using it?

Since you get that message you're not logged in as administrator. Are you able to do that (log in as admin)?

Boot into "Safe mode" by tapping F8 during startup - log in as admin.

Do I understand this correctly? Are you not allowed to remove the "old" driver when you're logged in as administrator?

Maybe a silly question: Did you follow these instructions when you uninstalled the old ATI software?
