Hi!

 

I have an HD5770 Radeon graphic card that work nicely until now. For other reasons I made a fresh install of Windows and all works nice until ATI Catalyst install.

 

Last time I made a fresh install of Windows 7 64 bit, made all the updates and mobos drivers install and created a restore point.

 

Windows update says that there's an optional update - ATI graphic driver, so the detections goes well. 

Also the ATI Autodetect is working nice as it points to the correct driver.

 

I tryed 4 different drivers, in this order:

- ATI Catalyst from ATI Autodetect

- ATI Catalyst beta 14.7

- Windows driver

- Old ATI 13.1 driver

 

All goes well on the installation but after reboot only the windows backgroung is displayed. I have nothing more, no start menu button/bar, no icon, no task manager. 

But through the power button on the case windows shuts down normally.

When I do a restore all goes back to normal.

 

Here are my specs:

 

MB Asus H97M-E

Intel Celeron G3258 (HD graphics is disabled on BIOS)

GSkill 2x2GB DDR3 F3-12800CL7-2GB ECO

SSD Samsung 840 EVO

HD 1TB Samsung

ATI HD 5770 1GB

Optical Drive

Dell u2312HMt

PSU Corsair VX550W

 

Any leads on this? Thank you

After troubleshooting found an HDMI that I have connected to the Graphics card to blame for.
