I have recently purchased a Radeon HD 7950, upon plugging it in, everything is fine, however when I install *any* drivers that arent the default microsoft one, the card will crash when windows starts and the machine requires a reboot into safe mode to disable the drivers. I have tried the drivers that came on the CD, the lastest drivers, the beta drivers, plus some older ones too, I also tried both 32 and 64 bit (even though I have a 64bit OS). I have checked all the usual, the card has plenty of power, the additional power plugs are plugged in, the card is seated properly and the PCI connecter is dust-free. I also tried a full OS reinstall to see if there were any conflicting drivers/applications, but the result was the same.
I also tried to RMA the card to the place of purchase, but they sent it back saying there was nothing wrong with it? (I suspect that they only just plugged it in and didnt install any drivers).
