Yes I used driver sweeper to do this, well... I uninstalled the ATI drivers and the CCC the usual way. I rebooted in safe mode, used driver sweeper, restarted the system normally. I did get a error message that said something like "unable to load MOM.???????????. I looked that up and it was from the ATI drivers. I redid the safeboot and driver sweeper, rebooted normally and checked that I had removed the ATI drivers and CCC. I never got that error message again. Then, I installed the nvidia drivers, rebooted played around a little and rebooted again, then I ran some of the benchmarks and played some games.
