Windows 7: 10.3 is killing me

Windows 7 x64

- XFX Radeon 5770
- 1 TO seagate HDD
- WIndows 7 64 bit

The installation went smoothly. I did all the updates of windows. The second thing I did was to install my Graphic card driver which is now Catalyst 10.3.

And now the mess begins.... Once it is installed, Windows stick to the shutdown's screen forever.

-Windows takes like 5 minutes to boot (hanging a lot on the Welcome screen).

And on top of that, when it's finally booted, Windows hangs every 30 seconds.....

To make sure it was catalyst, i formated my PC like 5 times and it was always the same .... catalyst break everything.

Is this something someone is aware of?
Any idea on where to start to get this shit fixed?

My next test will be to reformat and then try an older version of catalyst.

Any help will be appreciated.


I have almost the exact set up. I was having problems with booting with one stick of memory in Slot 3-1. If it doesn't boot in slot 3-1 replace the motherboard. ANd thats what I did.
Now it boots with slot 3-1 plus it boots with all 3 sticks of memory.
It's still fussy the first time booting from a cold boot I see 4 GB. If I hold the power button, shutdown and then restart i see 6 GB.

For your problem I would make sure everything is reseated properly. Are you using bios version F5? If not replace either the motherboard, graphics card or maybe both.

Opps didn't notice you fixed it. sorry.
