    I just reformatted my Hdd and installed the cat 3.9 vid driver...But after I installed the driver, Winows would not start up. This would happen...It would get through BIOS, then the Windows loading Page would Load, after it finished loading, my monitor would shut off...:shrug: ...Please Help

    Nice thoughtful title :rolleyes:

    Anyway, push F8 from the time your computers POST's and try to boot into safe mode

    First off, the newest ATi drivers are the Catalyst 3.10's. I doubt that it's the driver that's causing the problems. It may be that something went wrong in the reformat however. If possible, try to re-reformat it, and see if that fixes it.

    EDIT: Oh yeah, forgot about Safe Mode...it doesn't load any drivers, so if it's a driver that's the problem, that should fix it. Then, I would uninstall the Catalyst 3.9 drivers and download and install the 3.10's.
    This is where my signature would go had my host not been such a Bandwidth Nazi.
