Like the headline says, it won't open even after re-installing the current download. Any ideas?

Try opening it in safe mode.

The plot thickens. I can't boot into safe mode. I press F8 repeatedly while booting and get a bios box asking me if I want to boot using my HDD or either of my two DVD burners. If I continue pressing F8 nothing happens. If I select the HDD and press enter the machine boots normally. I've never seen this combination of issues before.

The GPU is a 5750 from Saphire and the OS is XP Pro. I thought about re-installing the board using the CD but it seemed like a step backward.

Is this a custom computer or OEM? It sounds like the F8 keystroke is accessing the boot menu. There is probably a different key to access the safe mode menu.

I built the box. I'll check the ASUS manual. I've never heard of using anything but F8.

I have looked through my MB manual and can find no info about boot menus or booting into safe mode.

Other common boot keystrokes are F1, F2, F11, and delete. It can vary, depending on the motherboard. Try them, and look for the safe mode menu.

F11 worked but CCC still won't open. Doesn't matter. I'm replacing this POS GPU. ATI has always had buggy drivers and still does. Last time for me. Anybody want a 5750 cheap?

There's a section of the forum called 'deals.' You may be able to find a buyer there.

I have same problem, P55A chipset, XFX 5770 XXX edition. had a 5750 to start with, removed it for a temp nvidia card then to the 5770 in a month after installing Windows, and sicne then the ATI software is useless as well after trying a million things... :(

I hear you. It's not like this is my first experience with ATI. I used some of their boards before they were bought by AMD and had many of the sort of problems that are nearly impossible to track down or eliminate. I hoped it was different now. I'll wait until Nvidias new release and buy what's right for me and sell my 5750 to someone with more faith in ATI than me.

This is an old thread, but it's one of the top search results for "ccc won't run" so I wanted to post another possible solution here. My solution was to clear out the Windows GAC (Global Assembly Cache). In Windows 7, you can browse directly to "C:\Windows\assembly". Sort by "Public Key Token", then delete everything with the Token "90ba9c70f846762e" (ATI's key). You'll obviously need Administrator privileges. No reboot needed either. Reinstalled CCC and it ran perfectly!

The GAC lets you share DLL's that are the same version number. If it's in the GAC, any installer will NOT install a new DLL - it'll use the one in the GAC. If the GAC DLL is corrupted, you're majorly SOL.

When I reinstalled the CCC, it took longer to install then it had before. Presumably, this was due to the installer copying all the correct DLL's to my hard drive. And no ATI DLL's have made it back into my GAC.

To give credit to the original poster, here's the page I found this fix on:

Please provide the hardware detaisl (Specs) of your PC including Power Supply brand and model.

What's the status on the PC Device Manager (Control Panel)? Do you get confirmation that all device drivers are correctly installed?
