Computer keep restarting after installing ati display driver for hd 58
I have bought a new msi hd 5850 graphics card, and after installing the card, everything works fine. I can connect my screen through the gfx card port, but when I instal the ati display driver given with the cd, and boot my system it crashes just before the window logon screen.
My configuration is: MB - Asus P5Q-VM C2Q Q9550 2.83GHz 2 GB Physical memory (800 Hhz) 320 Gb WD Hard disc PSU - Atek 600W MSI HD5850 gfx card
First I have tried installing in vista then I tried in XP sp3 Then I tried windows 7 and every time i have got same problem of crashing just before the windows logon screen.
The driver version in the cd was 8.66 RC7 Even I tried with the latest version of driver from ATI and MSI sites. But no result.
Is there any hardware compatibility issue, or driver problem. Also can be there a bios update problem, I have bios version 400. however I have seen version 2001 already out on Asus site.
Please help. Any info regarding this will be helpful to me.

PSU - Atek 600W??? What amperage have 12v rail? Is a poor and very dangerous choice for a high end video card. It seems that this video card is protecting her self. And get the latest driver from AMD site.
I have tried latest driver from the amd site, but do not help..
Thanks for all the replies and help... The problem was with the drivers. The shop where I bought the card make the driver update correctly... I dont know I too downloaded the latest driver from amd and MSI site, but they were not working properly.
But now the card is working properly.
