This should always be the first step once you get to the desktop to see what drivers Win7 wants updated or to provide, to get Performance Updates that may affect your problem, and to get Net Framework 4 required to run the ATI tool Solar provided.

I've now typed this out four times in this thread.
Doing that now, thanks

Yup

Thanks again everyone, you helped me and I learned a lot too. I'm so used to Linux I never would have figured this out.

I got the activation sorted and all seem to be working as it should, thanks again to everyone who helped with their time and knowledge!!

Really glad to hear it, Kev.

How did you end up getting a stable driver for your video card?

I had tried the most recent drivers and they failed, then I found some 'Legacy' drivers on the ATI site and tried them, they seemed to work. Haven't tried any gaming yet however.

Thanks again everyone
