I am a rookie PC builder and I recently built my first system using the MSI HD7950 Twin Frozr III as the GPU and when I installed AMD Catalyst it installs properly but when I reboot it only comes up with audio and a black screen. Please help

OS is Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

Are you installing the whole Catalyst Control Center or just the drivers? Also, what happens before installing the software/driver, can you use the card without any trouble?

The whole CCC. At first I can use the card but windows read it as standard VGA adapter

Try an older version of CCC. You can also try just getting the drivers from AMD instead of the whole CCC.

If you have more than one monitor it could be that try disconnecting one if you do.
