hello all, i need some help from someone who is a little more tech-savy than me. put simply, i have an issue with my PC that was caused by my stupidity of pressing buttons without knowing the outcome.

i was trying to re-install the latest drivers for my graphics card from the AMD website, and since ive had alot of issues with CCC and the installation in general in the past (will go into detail if needed) i thought i would press the uninstall option in the control center, reboot and then install. so when i uninstalled it gave me some warning saying it will remove all my amd drivers (which i quickly overlooked).

when my computer rebooted, i got a BSOD giving me a couple error codes. i can get into my PC with safemode, i tried running the installer in safe mode but ofcourse didnt work. googled some ways of using system restore in safe mode, but my PC is saying there are no restore point. I have it set to automatically setup restore points so im not sure why it cant find any.

so i am officially stumped. here are my pc specs:

windows vista 32 bit

amd athlon 64 x2 dual core @2.61 GHz

4 gbs ddr2

ati radeon hd4650

this is the name of the installer i downloaded from the amd website:

13-1-legacy_vista_win7_win8_32_dd_ccc

looks like the driver version was 8.97.100.7

i dont have my windows installation cd so using one is a last resort for me as i have to obtain one. any help would be extremely appreciated. i apologize for the probable noobiness of my post. hopefully i havent overlooked this issue in my searches of this forum, and if you need any more information just let me know. wont be doing much else until my PC is fixed anyways

While generally not recommended, this is the exception case when you should try driver sweeper or some if its siblings. As far as I know driver fusion is the most popular these days. Download it, boot into safe mode and clean up. See if you can boot into normal mode after that.

after reading my post a couple times and trying constantly to try and get my pc working, i though i should maybe simplify what exactly i need. all i need is to know what drivers this installer uninstalls (http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/Legacy/Pages/legacy-radeonaiw-vista32.aspx?type=2.4.1&product=2.4.1.3.36;2.4.1.3.37;2.4.1.3.39;2.4.1.3.38;2.4.1.3.40&lang=us&rev=13.1&ostype=Windows%20Vista%20-%2032-Bit%20Edition) and where i can find those drivers again
