Windows 7: Installing ATI drivers causes BSOD

Installing ATI drivers causes BSOD

Well, after deleting Windows XP, Vista and Ubuntu and reinstalling 7 (32bit) as a single OS I maybe resolved my problem with Sapphire HD 3650 not working on 7 but now, when I install Windows 7 drivers (weird, my agp card gets recognized with normal drivers) and reboot I get BSOD before entering the login screen of Win 7. Any help?

Think you will find that the problem is the chipset on your motherboard (ULi) is unsupported (or has very limited built-in) support in 7. Managed to find the specs for your motherboard,

ASUSTeK Computer Inc.

and it hasn't seen a driver update of any kind in over 5 years. That said I have a feeling that the reason you are having problems with the actual ATI driver is due to the lack of a proper AGP driver. Would explain why it works with the default driver, but not once you install the ATI driver.

It also doesn't help that Nvidia bought ULi a couple of years ago, and then promptly dropped all support for it. The last ULi driver from Nvidia is over 3 years old, and only has support for up to one of the beta releases of Vista (Beta Build 5320).

Hopefully someone else will have a better suggestion but with what I can find about your hardware (not necessarily your video card, but the motherboard and lack of support) you have two options,

1. Run 7 on it, but only with the default drivers.

2. Stick with XP until you have a computer that is more up to date hardware-wise.

Can you provide me a link for the beta Vista driver? With that I may be able to use Vista then cause I want to upgrade from XP due to Dx10.
