Right so i have been using my intergrated graphics for awhile now thought id get a upgrade, looked around and this card seem to fit the puzzle nicely, but ive encountered a problem, currently running VGA from the card to monitor Work Fine. can get to desktop at lowest res, As soon as i try and install drivers for the card it will want to restart to put the new drivers into effect. upon restart, i would get BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) 100% of the time after restart. I can restore windows using AMD Driver Cleanup tool (Uninstall Tool). just wandering if anyone is having the same problems or if im doing anything majorly wrong. Any advice will be appreciated :) 

EDIT:
Also unable to detect Graphics card on device manager, just 'Standard VGA Graphics Adapter'

First uninstall your pc's display driver if you are using windows 7, it will choose some wdm 1.1 display driver and then Reinstall Your windows it's best thing to do and then install your drivers
