Hi, the first time I installed Windows 7 Professional (clean install, not upgrade) and installed the catalyst drivers
for my HD5750 video card (http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_catalyst.aspx?p=Windows 7/windows-7-64bit
), everything worked fine. I ended up formatting my hard drive and doing a reinstall though (had a major compatibility issue with Anti-Virus software and Microsoft Office, so decided to format the hard drive and did a reinstall). After doing that, and installing the Catalyst driver
, I'm having the following problem:
The install goes fine, the computer restarts, but when it boots up and windows starts, I have a black screen and nothing displays. My monitors' indicators also change from blue to amber (as if there is no computer turned on or connected to them). I've started the computer in safe mode, and the monitors work. I can then uninstall the driver, but then I can't extend my desktop using the standard VGA driver, or get the full resolution of my monitors (1400x900). It's pissing me off!
Somebody please help!!
