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.
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.
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.
