Windows 7: New radeon hd4850 - windows 7 splash screen freezes

Windows 7 Professional- 64

I don't know Amazon's policy. Let them know your concerns ans see if you can return it. If not, call mfg and get rma#. They will ask questions to determine what problem could be before they give you number.

I think the card may be defective.. This computer should recognize the card and automatically disable the onboard. I do not have another rig to test this in, so I will send it to amd for repair tomorrow.

If you have anymore suggestions, feel free to reply. Thanks for all your help and quick responses throughout the day. I appreciate it.

I got it working. I ran driver sweeper in safe mode and cleaned the ati drivers. I installed the card and the onboard graphics was disabled automatically. I was able to get pass the splash screen and install the ati driver. The card works great.
