  1. i've tried two ati cards: xfs hd 5830 and xfs hd 5830 and when loading catalyst it freezes the whole pc at the analysing stage. i'm trying to install catalyst version 10.7. my specs are as follows: intel i7-930 with gigabyte x58-ud3r mobo, running win7pro 64bit.
    does anyone have a solution?

    Have you uninstalled the old graphics drivers through Programs and Features before trying to install the new driver?

    Then have you installed the motherboard chipset drivers first?

    Are you running Crossfire (i.e.two cards in the machine at any one time) ? If so, remove one then try again, if you are not running crossfire then catalyst control center is a redundant piece of software for you seeing as the video card is more than capable of handling anything from today being thrown at it without the need of software acceleration.
