hi,

first i tried to install with my graphics card ATI ASUS EAH4350,but i couldnt install win 7. it stopped when "starting for first use" message.

but i found solution to install Windows 7 in vga mode and it worked.

then again i put my graphics card and started win 7. it automatically installed vga driver and asked me to restart before i install ati catalyst driver from cd.after restarting when black screen comes before "win 7 welcome screen" it freezes with mouse pointer.


i have been searching many forums,but found no solution. it only starts in vga mode or safe mode.


by the way i have win xp as well in c drive nad installed win 7 in h drive.

please respond.

thanks,
vijay

Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.

Start in safe mode with networking, download the last driver of ur GPU from here, uninstall the current driver and install the ATI driver that i downloaded from the ATI's web page.
