    So I installed a GTX 295 and downloaded the drivers off of nvidia's web site. Preveusly I had a Radeon 4870 X2 that came with the computer. The 4870 X2 stopped outputting video so I sent it back to alienware in exchange for a new card. They sent me back the GTX 295(with no software) instead of a radeon(which I was fine with).

    But now I'm getting an error message from ATI Catylist control center, saying the card is not supported. And now when I try to play a game it will stop out-putting video.

    Is it the ATI drivers that's causing this? How do I uninstall them? I can't see any ATI programs when I go to remove programs from the control panel.

    The GTX 295 stopped outputting video and is running with a red light, just like the 4870. This happened while I was installing the ATI driver.

    What can I do to get it working again, long enough to install the driver?

    You were installing an ATI driver for the 295?

    red light? that could be a power issue. check the cables/power supply.

    you really need to uninstall ATI drivers.
    have you tried those cleaners I mentioned?
