MSI Radeon HD6570 with no overclocking
AMD Catalyst Driver Version, and Driver History
13.4 along with 13.6 beta also have tried 13.1 legacy
Windows 8 Enterprise N x64 with media center pack added
Upon install of the card the computer boots fine and loads a default AMD driver from windows that works perfect but is not compatable with control center. So from here I attempt to install the proper display driver from AMD along with control center so that I can push a bit of overclock. I have got the drivers from AMD support site and also from the disk that came with the card. Issue is the same with both. During install the screen will flash black as it should during display driver install. Once this is done it does not come back up at all. Also in some cases it does come back up and completes install. Either way once done I go to close the install by hitting finish and as it begains to close it locks up. If it does close the system locks when loading the charm bar on the right. I can restart using the power button and it comes up to the login for windows. I log in and as it animates its way to Metro it locks. I can restore and it works fine and fails to work on install over and over. It is a LG 23 inch monitor connected through DVI with no adapters or extension sections. I had the card working before and went through all this headache last time and it just suddenly worked. I had to reinstall windows due to the july windows updates killing my system.

fresh windows install. Was working before July rounds of windows updates. Failed to work after updates corrupted boot. Had this issue before when it was working during initial install and it randomly started working and was working for about 5 months now. Default driver windows installs for AMD 6570HD works fine with proper resolution and functionality at 1920x1080 even during game play but I want the control center/vision engine to overclock a bit. check disk shows hard drive is in perfect shape. anti virus and firewall disabled during all install atempts. all atempts have been run as admin. It so severe that half the time I can not get past the log in to windows before the animations lock up. Issue has to be in the drivers or control center as default drivers work with no issues and the card can be pushed with no issue on the default drivers at full resolution in HD. Card has never been run hot temps rarely exceed 55C. Card has never had a artifact issue or crash.
Also tried doing install in safe mode with networking and get a error from the installer stating that it failed to automaticly detect hardware. This is only in safe mode.
