System:  HP 5150 dx mt;  Windows Vista Business Svc Pk2;  AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3500+ 2.20GHz;  3.00 GB ram;  32-bit OS; Bios: Pheonix Technologies, LTD 1.06, 9/7/2005; SMBIOS ver 2.4;  Force3D Radeon HD 6450, 2GB DDR3 PCI-e;  680 Watt PSU

This is regarding the install and failure of the Catalyst 12.10 software and driver solutions.  I installed a new 680 watt psu, upgrade from a stock 250watt.  Installed the Radeon Graphic Card.  Powered up the box with the display cord attached to the mobo, but display was black.  Then switched the cord to the gfx card and got a display of the desktop.  Put the quick start disk into the drive bay and began the download of the suite.  After an hour or more noticed that the progress bar stopped halfway through the process.  After 4 hours decided to cancel the install.  Went to the AMD driver support and downloaded the Catalyst Software Suite with .NEt4.  Download went well.  Attempt to install file: Display_AMD_VSW7W8_32_***_12-10_WHQL file but would not install.  Also went to the systems window update to attempt, but still get failure to install driver message.  Unknown what may be causing the install faiulre and how to correct this and complete a successful install of the driver.  The graphic card shows installed  ~izev916
