Problem after installing AMD Catalyst Software Suite?

So I am trying to install drivers for my A8-5600K graphics and I get a successful installation, but after rebooting I keep getting a "Cannot Display This Video Mode" and Optimum resolution 1680x1050 60Hz black screen. I am able to boot up in safe mode and uninstall the display adapter, but I still have a problem booting up normally. I can boot up normally if I uninstall both the display adapter and its drivers, but then that leaves me with the question of how can I install the required drivers?

    Windows 64 bit drivers right there, be sure to install in Program Files and not in Program Files (x86).

    Is this a new PC? old PC? was it built by you? sinds when does this happen? did it work sometime before? Need to know allot more before i can do anything?

    I apologize for not providing enough information (I am a newb). This is a new PC I built and is running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. This started happening the moment I loaded up one of my games for the first time. Ever since then I have not been able to fix the resolution problem. Everything seems to be working except the AMD drivers.

    I followed all three steps in that same order and I still get the 1 : Analog Input black screen with the "Cannot Display This Video Mode" and "Optimum resolution 1680x1050 60Hz." I ran the display driver uninstaller in safe mode and I made sure that the latest drivers were installed in Program Files and not Program Files (x86). Any other tips?
  5. What monitor and cable are you using? Make sure the cable is tight on both ends.

    I am using a 22 inch DELL monitor and a VGA cable with two male heads. The cable is secured on both ends.
  7. What board are you using, and the monitor's native resolution.

    I think I may have fixed it. I went into my BIOS and set everything to default and I was able to boot normally with the AMD drivers no problem. I did not think that was the problem since I had my system overclocked way before this problem occurred. Regarding your question, I have a MSI A75 P33 and the monitor's native resolution is 1680x1050.
