Sounds like you need a bigger PSU. If your GFx's card is chewing 450W outta 500W, then you are only leaving 50W - doesnt sound too great. My 5770 chews up 175W at max power. So make sure that your PSU is capable fo delivering the required power to your Gfx's card. 450W sounds very high thou - very high.

Also - Remember - you still need to power your CPU - my old dual core was 45W. That would leave you only 5w to power:

1. Motherboard,
2, RAM - through MoBo
3, HDD's
4, Cooling Fans,
5, Optical Drives - DVD-ROM, Blu-Ray etc,
6, Any other cards (Sound Etc) that are drawing power from the motherboard.

My PSU is 570W, and i made sure from Trust and Asus, that the PSU could power the Gfx card.

As Russ and other said - Clear all the old data you have. Go through control panel, programs and un-install there. When you come to re-install - dont bother with the disc that comes from XFX, just go to ATI download site:

sites.amd.com/us/game/...n7-64.aspx

Hope this helps buddy.

The PSU was a bundle buy thing with my case, which is terrible as well.
My computers Processor is a Quad Core Phenom 9450e 2.10Ghz all in all.
It's only got 2GB 1066Hz DDR2 RAM,
Disk Drive
Then additional fans and what not, I've already tried to download the drivers without anything else after stripping it of what it previously had. So I think I'm just going to leave it until I get my new case and PSU which should cost me a grand total of 101 Pounds! Thanks for the help though I've tried everything I can for it. Misco.co.uk said 450w is the minimum recommended minimum outage for the GFX, and once again cheers. Smile

No your PSU is fine! Rigger you are thinking it wrong. The Graphic card is not getting 450W from your PSU Very Happy Only like Nvidia 480 and 580/590 is getting that alot. 5770 peak is something around 100. I even ran that card overclocked with a lousy Chieftec 440W PSU Very Happy :D Beat that mate.

Proof.

You should try the format, because maybe your restoring and else have made something bad with the OS. Hope you don't have much data to restore and got time for installing everything back. I even have heard about similar cases that after format everything is fine.

How do you turn of system restore and back it up?
I forgot to mention, if I don't system restore I get an endless cycle of the first screen that appears when I turn my computer on, that goes as far as ' Starting up windows ' then it goes back to the choice of
Start Windows Normally
Launch System Restore ( Recommended )

And I've got a 500GB hard drive, that has 128GB spare, there's quite abit to reinstall, I think I'll format it anyway it's filled with trash as it is.

Is it worth just formatting it anyway? I've used the disk before to try and repair it, but it didn't work, is it worth just formatting it completely and starting a fresh?

Yeah, sorry didn't read it out first time.

Is the card itself installed correctly to your PC ?

Can you boot up on safe mode?
If yes try do clean AMD drivers and do not install new ones. Try to boot up the computer with Integrated card.

Try out some other card in your PC or your card in other PC.

Do you have windows 7 CD ? Try out to boot it and choose repair in the options.

Last option
Anyway try out format. I think because you can't boot up the OS on that harddrive then you will loose all the data. But it's the only way at the moment.

I've tried repair before, it made me system restore, I've never had an issue with my old graphics card which is a 5450, now I've got the new one, it's playing up a bit, the graphics card still works, there's just no drivers for it to work as well as it can.

Well in that case, I'll try and borrow an external hard drive from someone to put all my stuff on then throw it back over to my computer.
