Hi guys this is my dilemma,

I have bought a 7970 sapphire GHz edition 3 GB.

I installed it physically and the computer recognizes it. However after installed the newest drivers and restarting the computer it gets to initial windows 7 screen and freezes. At this point my only option is to turn off the computer and start it again.

When I start it up I have to repair the system. After that the drivers are no longer there and the graphics card isn't recognized anymore. :( 

SO to sum it up:
Install graphics card drivers, the graphics card is recognized BEFORE REBOOTING.


After reboot windows crashes and has to repair

After repair drivers/graphics card not there.


I don't earn a lot of money so it took me a long time to save for this card :( 

Please help!

thanks heap in advance !!

What is specs of the rest of your system?, Did you uninstall the old graphics drivers before installing the new graphics drivers?

SPecs:
Mobo P8Z77
CPU: 3570k
PSU: 750 bronze Cooler master
Graphics card: Sapphire 7970 GHz edition 3 GB
64 GB SSD
1 TB 7200 RPM 64 MB cache secondary HHD

I have uninstalled the graphics drivers and reinstalled from driver CD and also downloaded the latest ones from AMD too.

Its annoying as it works fine BEFORE I have to reboot (to finish install)

thanks!
