Was the system stable before you installed Catalyst? If you don't enter CCC, will the system boot properly and then operate normally?

I would suggest removing Catalyst completely, make sure all of your other drivers and Win7 are up to date, and then operate with the Win7 default drivers to verify overall stability. Then I would re-install Catalyst 10.5 operating at the default speeds (no overclocking).

This will verify whether you have a system stability or a Catalyst problem. Only after verifying all is well, should you start tweaking your CCC/Catalyst settings.

Good luck!!!

I'm not even tweaking... I just click on option (+)3D and PC powers down.

Understood. How about my other question? Was the system stable before installing Catalyst?

If you operate a game, or other application, does the system perform as expected?

You would not believe my luck... HDD have bad sectors... Stupid WD!! LOL
And to be even worse this is 2nd PC I had with same problem from new.

So to conclude. Before you start installing OS first check HDD for errors!

Thanks for the help.
