This is my first build. I have used driver sweeper and followed the driver installation instructions.
I have all the latest drivers, even for the 5970, and in the device manager it says that they are using the drivers, but it says code 35, your board does not have enough information, please update bios. I have the latest bios (1.4), I even tried reinstalling windows 7 several times. When I go to change the resolution the box is grayed out and I am stuck in 640x480 16 color. If I go into the advanced options it says I am using the driver VGAsave.
Also, when I put the second stick of ram it, it gets stuck on the welcome to windows screen with the little windows emblem on boot up. I should mention that, as well as the first boot image both are far higher resolution than when windows does start.
I am also getting that even though I have the latest RAID, Chipset, and bios.

I swapped out the card and it works fine with an older one.
