ok it worked, i'll hand it to ya, good fix.
on the next restart i thought, might install the ccc software.
epic fail, bsod like before.

so i decided to follow the method you gave, over n over till i get to a point where there is multiple of the same driver and updating software isn't working.

so i am doing a clean install, been church this morning, feeling faithful, i think i will
1.clean install
2.install latest ati driver (not the ccc full package) just driver package to ati folder
3.disable on board vidcard in device manager
4.shutdown
5.insert ati card, which looks good, looked it all over, capacitors etc (like u mentioned)
6.windows will detect and install its own driver
7. will del the atixxx.inf whatsit from system32
8. install software for the card like you mentioned
9. restart and see how it goes.

sound like a plan?

If it was my pc with exact same situation and where you are standing now, this is how it would be done:

1) Install Windows.
2) When at desktop, install driver normally from the .exe.
3) Hope for the best upon a reboot.
4) If bsod, follow my previous method.
5) Leave it alone then. You don't need CCC.
6) Install ATI Tray Tools and be happy.

Is this the only way? Probably not. I'm just suggesting what I'd do.

i got 7 install and then made a restore point.
shut down pc and installed card
this time i was able to see what was being installed
pci to pci bridge, the ati driver etc
but i got an error on Net 2.0, told it to continue anyway.
restarted with the bsod

will try your war by del the .inf and have disk method and see how i go

in the end i am sitting with a clean install of win 7 using the on board x1200 vid card, any attempt to install the ati radeon 4650 ends in horror, playing any games ends in graphics horror so i will let win 7 sit on that hdd and wait for all the fixes to be made and have gone back to win xp 64x until then.

unless you have any other suggestion.

i tried both our methods
yours didnt make it to the first finishing of the set up
mine still had bsods
using the method you provided ended in bsods, which is wierd since it worked first thing this morning
i did a clean reinstall and did the .net 3.5 with no prob.
install the card, let windows install its driver no prob
restart to bsod.
rinse repeat with the del .inf + hard install accepted
restart bsod
rinse repeat, this time i installed the ati driver normally, said it was success yay!
restart to bsod
so rinse repeat leaving the ati card out until there is some more fixes.

There's no deleting an .inf. I said "delete atikmdag.sys" from safe mode and then install, which you said worked for you...and then you messed it up by trying to install CCC....which still could have easily been fixed.

I'm I had your machine and card in my hands, I'd have Windows up with perfect 3d acceleration in as quick as it can install Windows and get me to desktop.

Yeah wish you were here ilol..
Sorry when typed my last post i was so tired i typed .inf by mistake instead of the .sys, was hoping you may have forgiven me for typing it.
But all the same I followed that process and I still got the bsod.
If there is a fic for the ccc could you pls explan.

Better yet, put it all in 1.2.3.4.5.6.7 step for me and send me your postal address and i'll send u coffee n donuts or a slab of your fav beer or a bottle of plonk, a lap dancer anything!
