5850 Crash

I need help guys, I finally got my XFX 5850 today, and I just installed it like any other graphics card, so first thing I did when I booted my computer up was install the latest driver from amd. Then I went into the catalyst Control Center and changed the scale so that it would fill up my whole screen, and as soon as I clicked apply, the whole entire screen started flickering and rainbow colors all over the place. I have no idea how to fix this, I tried to put in the CD that came with the card, but it won't even boot.

P.S. I am running Win7 64-bit
