Windows 7: Win 7 x64 crashing my HD 5970

I'm gonna have to do a windows reinstall, because the ati manager is corrupted, it won't deinstall, even after reinstalling it.

For me this means first installing windows XP, then the win 7 upgrade, will take about 2-3 hours total. And I don't like this either...

see.. its this type of thing that really annoys me about this company.

its a struggle to do anything, that's why im currently putting up with my poor performance until the new driver revision comes out....

the last time i had to uninstall the driver i got a BSOD & had to run a ''system restore''

I have always been with nvidia, but that can be a nightmare too.

Ok so here's what I did:
  • Did a fresh install without updates like from the tutorial.
  • I can't uninstall the standard VGA adapter, as it just pops up again when I remove it, if thats what you meant though. I tried 5 times.
  • Installed the 9.12 Hotfix drivers and furmark to test if everything works properly.
  • The HD 5970 works perfectly.
  • I install a NOD32 (could be any random install of anything or activity within windows)
  • The HD 5970 locks up upon entering 3D, and that won't stop until I reinstall the drivers. I tried removing the virus scanner just to be sure, but that didn't help.
So to rule any 3rd party software conflicts out I had to reinstall.

This however does mean that there's something in windows messing up my ATI drivers, and it kicks in doing about anything other then starting up furmark or a game.

Hi, try this.
Stop Auto install of Drivers.

Open the Control Panel, type "a" into the Search, top right.
Click on Devices and Printers.
Right click on the icon for PC
Click on Device Installation Settings.
Click on, No let me choose what to do.
Click on Never install driver software from Windows Update.
Go to the Device Manager, find your Device, right click on it and select Uninstall, and click the box that says
Delete this Driver, Select OK, close all windows and Shut Down, Then start your machine up again.
Install the Driver that you have.

Thanks for the info, but my windows settings were already on never installing driver software from windows update. I made that so when I was installing windows. So windows didn't install anything for me.

Ok, if you just reinstalled the new operating system, you will have to go to the Motherboard site and install all the chipset, and other drivers also.
