This system worked fine, But then I got a MSI R6950 Twin Frozr III and I haven't been having very much luck with it. Upon installing drivers (I have the latest 12.1 preview and have tried 11.11) and re-booting my login screen looks like this:
Then when I do login the screen goes black and I have to restart. Safe mode works fine. Is this a card or driver problem?
I should also say that everything up to the login screen looks fine as well.

Try two things:
1) Uninstall your video drivers. Then reboot and run Driver Sweeper (free program available for download) and clean out any remaining AMD or NVidia video drivers. Reboot a final time and reinstall your 6950 drivers.
2) If you still have the same problem, try the above but use the previous set of AMD drivers.
It honestly sounds like a hardware problem, but if the above steps (can be done in about 15 minutes) don't work then RMA the card!
I did what you said however still no luck, oh well. Guess I'll RMA the card. thanks for your help anyway
