I don't even know where to begin. I will post my specs, sounds right; *Windows XP Pro *HD3850 AGP *2GB(2x1GB) RAM *480w PSU (Antec Trio) *Asus Motherboard (Don't know model at the top of my head) So initially I either got hacked or downloaded some bad stuff. No problem there, I just reformatted and installed windows fresh. I ran Windows Auto Update, installed C++ 2005 Redist, .NET Framwork 1.1, 2.0 and 3.5. Windows Update ran up until SP3, which I did not install. I had already installed the latest drivers for my motherboard. No problem. Then I download the AGP Hotfix 9.11 drivers, it starts to install that dumb Install Manager, then it seems to have installed CCC also, but it did not install the Display Drivers. So I tried again, Cleaned with BOTH Driver Cleaner and later tried also with Driver Sweeper, using both with each other for maximum uninstallation effect. No dice, same deal. Drivers weren't showing up in Display Manager. I uninstalled again the same way, went into Device Manager and pointed to the driver files directly. Still had problems. So I went on google and grabbed a copy of the 9.1 drivers. It installed the Display Drivers and CCC, it showed up in Device Manager before asking me to reboot (I had DM open while installing to see) and after I reboot, it loads XP and before I select my user account, I get a black screen and the monitor eventually turns off, as if it wasn't reading my card at all anymore. But my card is plugged in good and there is no dust around it. So I went into safe mode, uninstalled again and tried the same thing with the 9.10 drivers. Same thing happened. Then I tried the 9.9 drivers, SAME THING HAPPENED! I'm totally at my whits end here. I have no idea what to do and I am losing my cool by a lot. I REALLY need some help here, I'm about ready to throw my hardware up against the wall just for the heck of it, for the pleasure it would bring when I see it break into a million pieces. But I like my PC! So please help me get it working. I'm dying here. I went to the ATI Forum and asked for help, they were as useless as they always generally are. You are my last hope.
