You said this problem has been going on for a few weeks correct?? Could it be related to the reinstall?

Yes!

It is either a card or driver issue have you ensured all drivers are up to date??
and I agree with liquid snake anything can go bad within days or even hours of installing it.

Nah... I don't think so. It doesn't happen when its hooked to the onboard one, only when its hooked to the card. So, OS couldn't be the problem.

I just put the two together... Reinstall about the same time as the problems started... Maybe you have two drivers that dont play nice?

In device manager, i see nothing related to the on-board card... Btw, Im downloading the 10.10 driver now. Can u give me exact steps on uninstalling previous ATI drivers and reinstalling new drivers as i see that whenever i install or uninstall it, windows installs its own drivers and i doesn't get the CCC installed. I kinda have to install the ATI drivers again "on top of" the windows's drivers.. That's only way i can get CCC installed.. may be if that could be the reason... :O
