Dear All another Hobo asking for assistance.

Purchased a system with a HD 7850 2MB card in it.

Loaded Windows 7 then the Catalyst software.  When the PC boots up it gets to the Windows start up screen then goes black.  Monitor does not power off just sits unitil I press a key then Num Lock goes off and still no response.

Reboot in safe mode remove the HD 7850 driver and the PC comes back with VDA.  I tried running with Win 8 before sending the PC back to supplier as it had the same issue.

I Dont know where to go with this.

Bios updated downloaded latest drivers from the site but the same everytime.

Had the system back to supplier they say OK. But I expect that they just booted the system up and nothing else.  Dont want an expensive card that just runs VGA?

Thanks in advance.

Spec as below.  Any known issues you can advise on?

Checked the forum but nothing on the 7850 I can see.

Thanks in advance
