    so im tryn to get sims3 to work on gf computer and it loads up fine but after about 5mins it gives the atidavg error? i googled it and it suggested to update the drivers but ive never done this? it says uninstall old drivers and reboot but make a recovery disc first... whats the worse case seinerio on something like this and if their are no drivers will windows still find the videocard? do u think this will help the problem at all?

    its a dell deminsion e510

    thanks in advance.

    the recovery disc is optional

    just create a restore point and do a system restore if something fucks up
    google XP/Vista System restore or driver rollback if you don't know how

    worst scenario,... windows will just use its default vga driver
    you just have to reinstall the ATI driver again.
