Hi snd welcome to seven forums

Ok either its a display drvier or monitor. Lets take a look in devic manager (type device manager in search) look under display adapters and see if is working correctly.

You can upload a snip (use snipping tool yeah type that in search) and upload it using the paperclip icon for attachments.

lets try that first

Its been a while since I had an ati card (all in wonder days) but doesn't it come in 2 files the driver and the control center?

Let me look

edit for add . Im assuming you dl'ed the 3600 series for either 32 or 64 bit, right. If 32 the ccc is here http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_ca...indows-7-32bit if 64 bit they dont support so you may have to use vista 64.

The CCC for (vowsta kinda like wowsta) vista 64 might work its probably your best bet given that they dont have a win 7 support for the ccc yet.
