So, I did my annual hard drive wipe and reinstalled windows. I'm having an excessive amount of trouble getting my graphics card working again.
My setup is a normal monitor, VGA cable, connected to a VGA-DVI adapter, which is plugged into a Radeon 5850 card. Even before the wipe, when it was working, it would not display the BIOS information, I had to plug the VGA cable directly into my motherboard to see that.
So, I did my wipe, installed the latest CCC version from the website, and ... nothing. I rebooted, and there's a black screen. When it was working, it would be black until Windows started up. There's no video coming out at all. At this point, I can remove the cable, plug it into my mobo, and see what's going on. Device manager recognizes it, it's physically hooked up correctly, the only thing that changed was the software.

Not sure. It won't open, saying the video card is unsupported. CCleaner reports the install manager to be 8.0.881.0, while the installer file itself claims 4.42.0
