Graphics card drivers and Windows 7 Crashing! please help

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 !!

    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!
  3. with windows 7 64 bit
  4. And 8 gb of 2133 ram


    Also when I install the drivers the device manager says "Radeon 7900 series" or similar but after reboot it says "standard vga graphics adapter"
  5. rule out a few things go to the intgrated graphics and update your bios.
