Accidentally Uninstalled ATI

    Hello:

    While cleaning my hard drive a few hours ago I made a mistake and
    uninstalled something called ATI. Now my display is distorted and enlarged,
    and the screen ripples when I scroll. I tried to do a VAIO recovery, but I
    didn't have the proper tools to back up my files (I own a Sony VAIO notebook,
    2004).

    I don't know what to do to restore my screen display. I have downloaded a
    new ATI driver from the ATI support site called the RADEON Family, but that
    is only a guess. I don't know if a driver is even what I need, or if that is
    the right one.

    What should I do?

    Thank you,
    Margot

    Hi Margot.

    Go to the Sony support website at
    http://www.vaio-link.com/downloads/register/register.asp?l=en. You'll be
    asked for a Product code and serial number that you can find on your computer
    by following the instructions on the supplied website.

    Do a System Restore to a date/time before you uninstalled the ATI stuff.
