I have a dell running an ATI Radeon X1300, and I'm unable to install the Catalyst control panel/display driver (Oct-15th) on the ATI website after my fresh Windows Vista home basic 32 installation. (Dell remotely reformatted the pc)
Sounds like conflicting drivers. This might be a little over your head or I am giving you too many details, as always it is hard to gauge some one's knowledge in anything especially computers so I hope I do not offend you.
First download a program called Driver Sweeper, but do not run it yet.
Go to control panel > programs and feature > ATI drivers > uninstall > control panel again > (this step might be the first one you take if the ATI drivers are not available under programs and features) device manager > VGA adapter/device > right click on your card > click uninstall > check uninstall device
Now reboot windows into safe mode ( hit F8 while booting and then hit safe mode)
Go to control panel > device manager again > VGA adapter/device again > right click on what ever comes up under it > uninstall (this uninstalls the windows generic driver)
Now open driver sweeper > click ATI under the Home tab > hit Analyze > hit clean > drivers should be completely erased at this point
Reboot again ( safe mode optional) and install the drivers and CCC. Good luck.
