    You don't mean the ATI Catalyst control center thing do you? If you do, just get rid of it, the graphics driver and control center are seperate programs, your graphics driver will still do it's job!

    If you don't mean that what do you mean?

    erm its the theatre mode thing in the control centre. thats when you play a video on the pc screen it automatically clones to full screen on an attached 2nd screen, my tv in my case.

    I doubt theatre mode will work without the cc tho....

    Windows should be able to do that on its own, without Catalyst Control Center installed. I guess you've just got to take it off and try it, if it doesn't work then your card must be the exception. I've had several ATI cards and I've always managed without it.

    I use omegadrivers without the control center, they're usually pretty robust and engineered for performance (if you're into your gaming at all).
