You should be able to use a retail key more than once, perhaps a phone activation might be in order as well.

This is why it is recommended to activate windows after you have sorted all possible issues. I like waking 2 weeks before activating windows in case I need to reformat again.

I'll remember that for next time.

So I'm borrowing a caddy so I can format the hard drive tomorrow. Guessing its just like being back at the start. Install windows. Plug in gfx card and install drivers?

Erick, Done it all as you said but still the same results. Drives install and the gfx card is shown in device manager. But one I reboot to finalise the install, I get the starting windows screen and then blackness. Nothing.

Ideas?

For some reason the 7770 doesn't like being installed in a fresh build like that. Similar issues happened to me to an extent that my system got bricked. First I thought I had performed a bad driver installation. Card was underperforming, audio lags timed with fps loss, resolution would get messed up, monitors native resolution was unavailable. I went to use driver sweeper, and after I was prompted to restart my computer the system was bricked and refused to boot into windows. Apparently driver sweeper swept more than it had to.

After reinstalling the way I explained above I had no problems whatsoever. I believe I might of had something to do with installing the motherboard chipset drivers, and IGP drivers on top of the settings the GPU had done on the clean install. Or maybe it wasn't that, I really do not know. Some sort of conflict I am sure of.

Anyway, give it a try.

Did you install ALL other drivers not related to the card before plugging it in?

Yes. All other drivers installed.

Would it be because the drivers are not off a disc and are downloaded?

It could be, there is something the video card is not liking at all, the problem with downloading drivers online is that sometimes you don't know if they are the adequate drivers. Are you downloading from the motherboards manufacturer website?

Yes, because the dvd drive I bought wont read discs. So that's being sent back.

And you download the drivers which are specific to your win 7 bit version, and specific motherboard revision, correct?
