I've uninstalled old drivers before installing new card on my system.

Still dxdiag and games detect my old gpu 3870. Got an 4870 GS.

Is there a fast solution that doesn't count a system reinstallation?

Hello.

I've found a solution that's quite easy and fast.

No need to use driver removal software etc.

1. Just go to your Control Panel -> Devices ->  Device Manager

2. Choose "View" in Device Manager and Select "Show Hidden Devices"

3. Uninstall all unused cards. (My system Win7 is running about 3-4 years now, so i've modified it a lot, had 3 gpu cards hidden).

4. Reboot, use ati uninstall utility for windows 7 , reboot and install newest drivers.

5. Done.

Cheers.
