Hello, im having big issue with my computer. I had windows xp, and computer worked perfectly, i used it for 3 years with no reinstalling or any sort of refreshing my pc, it had viruses, so i decided to install windows 7 instead. Installation always lopped, over and over again, on the screen when windows 7 are loading. Then we found out, that that was happening because of my gpu (ATI Radeon 4600), when we changed that pc would load with integrated gpu, instalation was just fine, and now my pc is running on win 7 64 just fine with integrated gpu. I've tried to download any necessary drivers, but it seems its not working, as soon as i change in bios, that pc would load with PCI-E (connectivity?), with my ati radeon gpu, it starts that loading loop again.
I dont even know is it my mother board problem, bios or gpu..
Thank you in advance

I think it won't install if is not active, so, don't know what to tell you. It look like you won't be using that.

did you run windows update? get it up to date then try installing the driver in safe mode again.

Seems to be a board issue if it happens as soon as you aren't using the onboard. Update bios?

It depends on the board. Read the manual.

What is the make/model of your motherboard?

Usually the best thing to do is to go to the manufacturer's website, go to support, and see if any downloads are available for your motherboard. They usually post the BIOS updates in the same area.

I had this issue with an HP computer I had....upgraded to Windows 7 and the same message. To run that update - you must run Windows XP.

If you have a spare hard drive - install XP with a minimal install, run the update, then remove the drive. If not, you will have to install XP on your drive. :-(

You can try that. Not sure how well VMs work when trying to update the bios. You might need direct access to the chip. I don't know for sure though.

Thank you for the update! I will have to check out FoxLiveUpdate!
February 6, 2013 4:36:11 AM

but its your own risk, as it said already in that update, that may cause computer shut down etc. If you are having same issue as i did, dont be afraid after the bios update your pc will reboot and you wont see anything, thats because your normal gpu is working again, and bios are changing to that (channel?) again ;)  i hope that helped

after bios update, all the catalyst, all the drivers for gpu is installing perfectly

It is an older HP - using an ASUS board. I have the most current BIOS update installed on it. I keep an old hard drive laying around with XP on it just in case another update comes out.

Most of my builds now are either ASUS or ASROCK motherboards - and they have "instant flash" over the internet (this is really nice!).

It is fully operational right now - no I don't want to try and "fix something that ain't broke"....
