Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

How much memory do you have installed? I had a problem with the ati drivers and my memory. Had to take out all the memory and reinstall 4GB, then install 9.2 as Administrator, then reinstall the rest of the memory. I'm using 8GB of memory, it's worth a shot to try.

please uninstall the Beta drivers completely [restart] and then try to install 9,2
