Radeon 6870 driver problem

after finishing my build and installing windows i first installed the drivers i needed
the last one i did was the gpu once i found the right one which was from the main amd website so i installed it and ran it and when i was installing it
my pc turned off and when it turend on ( i think it was by itself that turend on not sure ) it went to a blue screen and started windows normaly .

that was yesterday now i tried from the sapphire websiteto get the drivers
and installed that once i was done there my pc sent me a message that said i had no drivers for the gpu
so i installed this amd driver autodetect http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/Pages/auto_detect.aspx
and it said i had the latest driver and it could not install a driver for me


so im confused and dont know what to do plus do you think i should wait to resolve these driver propblrms to play a game because im gonna install tf2 and that free to play battlefield ( my mum wont give me money to buy bf3 which was the reason i bought this pc )
