Windows 7: ati radeon 4650 bsod on boot

ati radeon 4650 bsod on boot

You probably heard this a million times now but i've spent all day reading forum after forum, downloading this and that and i'm at that point where i want to format, got back to xp and take win 7 back for a refund.

Installed win 7 on a clean 1 tb drive.
ran updates
installed trackball mouse
installed zboard
deleted onboard asus vid card drivers
put ati radeon 4650 in
set bios to boot priority on pcie
get to loading screen, then BSOD
reboot, can get to safe mode
win 7 auto installs a generic vid card driver, calling it 4600 series
restart with its generic driver, bsod, resart in safe mode
..at one reboot i no longer seen anything on any monitors...not to say i have them all plugged in, i had to try cables and cords until i found one that worked..

...i read to install driver then ccc seperatly, so i did in safe mode, restarted
and it worked, yay, but a balloon popped up wit a problem that needed another restart, so i did, BSOD arrgghh..

1st time i installed, i had the ati card in, all was good until a restart with the first bsod.

so i reinstalled win 7 by formating drive first, so i guess it used the onboard vid card so lo and behold the bsod loop continues. anyone got any help for me?

Disable onboard video (or vga) in the bios. If you really can't find anything like that, disable it in display adapters within the device manager.

from what i have seen there is no way to disable it in the bios.
i can set priority, but nothing more, so your suggestion then is to remove ati card, restart, win7 will install the onboard vid card again, i disable it, then shut down, insert ati card and restart yea?

No, just disable onboard using device manager.

Nobody really cares if you get a refund here so please don't use that as some kind of ooga booga on us.

I'd try with one monitor only first.

sorry i am frustrated, been trying to get past this problem for 2 days now total, how hard can it be to install a card!!!

I'd try with one monitor only first. --- yes my little lg204wt was in use on its own.

i want the real ooga booga here because i am at a loss at my process

1. clean drive
2. install 7
3. install mobo drivers
4. install mouse
5. install zboard.
6. disable onboard vid card in device manager
7. insert ati card.
8. turn power on, see load screen , watch pc try to run disk in dvd then bsod.
9. load into safe mode, see driver for ati say generic 4600 series
10. resart, same process as 8, rinse and repeat.

give me a better method then the above mentioned

C:\Windows\Minidump

Copy the latest few files there to another directory, then rar them to a single file.

Attach the .rar to a post and I'll analyze them to see if I can find the cause of the bsod.

In the meantime, update your chipset drivers and bios version, from the manufacturer's website.

Have extracted install folder ready at C:\ATI, from the installer .exe.

Boot into safe mode. Navigate to C:\Windows\System32\Drivers

and delete atikmdag.sys.

Right click video card in device manager. Update driver software. Browse. Let me pick. Have disk. Browse. Find the .inf with C7 or CL in its name in C:\ATI somewhere. Double click it. Hit ok and let it install. Reboot after it does.

Also, check the capacitors on the card. See if they are in good condition with flat tops and no brown substances near or on them.
