this is my first post on these forums, be kind I hope my questions isnt a duplicate of thousends before me - at least I wasnt able to find the answer using the search engine.
I recently bought a new processor, a AMD Athlon 64-bit dual Core(you can find my exact info in the dxdiag quote further down on page), upgrading from a Athlon 64-bit single core. Running on Vista 64-bit Ultimate together with a ATI Radeon 3850 AGP graphic card on a MSI Ultra3 motherboard, yes, this is the 939 socket version. Everything was running just fine before i installed my new processor. I took out the processor and installed the new one. Booted the system and it seemed to work out - until the ATI Radeon Display Drivers(latest version; 8.5) launched/booted and the system froze. I rebooted in safe mode and nothing was wrong. Re-installed Windows Vista Ultimate and everything, again, seemed to work fine untill i installed the CCC[Catalyst Control Center 8.5 suite] and rebooted the system and it froze again after hitting desktop.
I've uninstalled the display drivers in safe mode, booted the system and uninstalled all the Catalyst software, installed the default windwos VGA drivers while i'm trying to find a solution to this problem.
So to sum up: My windows vista 64-bit freezes when I use the ATI radeon drivers for my graphic card after upgrading my cpu to a Athlon dual core.
Motherboard driver: 1.0d something(latest for my motherboard on the MSI website)
Graphic card: ATI Radeon HD 3850 AGP
