Last night I decided to move from XP to W7... so I format the HDD and I did a clean installation of W7...

 

I installed the driver from the disk of my ATI 5870 HD series and then I just updated all the windows stuff... until it cames the time to update the graphic card drivers to Catalyst 13.12. I tried and in the middle of the proccess i got a BSOD... so i tried to fixed doind a system restored and I tried to install it again.. resulting in another BSOD.

Then It ocurred to me to install Catalyst 12.8 because that version worked fine when I have Win XP, but after getting the right driver for my Win7 X64bits System... all I got is another BSOD

Now I dont know what to do... Please I need some help with this:

System Specifications:

OS: W7 Ultimate 64 Bits

Motherboard: Gygabite X58A - UD7

RAM: 6GB

Graphic Card: ATI RADEON 5870

 

PS: Sry for my bad english.. I cant express myself very well.

I should add.

 

The BSOD error is 0x00000116

 

I tried with 13.12 drivers, 13.9 and 13.4

 

Nothing works. In the middle of installation, the screen flicks and after a few seconds with black screen (sometimes with cursor just showing) I get a BSOD.

 

Any Help would be appreciated

0x116 means you have a TDR. A TDR is usually the sign of a broken hardware. Broken can also be not properly manufactured. Those gigabyte boards ending with UDx got BIOS updates a few years ago to solve this very same issue and similar ones. So check for a BIOS update first.

I also took a look at it and it seems your possible fix is in the F7 BIOS released in 2010. The description says "Enhance CPU, DDR, PCIex16/x8 compatibility ". Your issue is very likely a PCIe compatibility problem.

When I had XP I did update the motherboard bios to F7.

Now, strange thing... I ran the vga@bios utility, but it is unable to find my graphic card.
