the reason why windows will not let you install the drivers from the disc is because you already have a newer version installed from your previous graphics card HD5450, these drivers are the same for the HD5770

you must uninstall these drivers completely from your system before installing the new card!

use Driver-Sweeper again
tick boxes for AMD-Display and NVIDIA-Display then analyse
then make sure all boxes are ticked and hit clean.
all these drivers and registry information will be cleaned.

next
turn off pc and install new card
make sure it is sitting nicely and both pci-e power plugs are connected to the card
switch pc on let windows do it's thing and if windows is stable
then install the latest drivers from the AMD site

this should work. the only problem is whether system restore has f**ked up your system. at this point i would consider formatting and starting a fresh. but make sure you back up your data beforehand. i also like to backup browser bookmarks among other things.

good luck

I don't have enough plugs coming from my power supply to try put both in, I'll download driver sweeper again and try wiping all of them, if it doesn't work after that then I've got no idea, If I get no-where with it this time then I'll die a little bit inside and get probably throw abit of a hissy fit, I've been installing drivers directly from ATI rather than the disk.

This is the last thing I'm trying before I completely give up, if it works, then I really appreciate the help and everything that you've suggested. If it doesn't work then thank you for the time you've given up attempting to help my miserable excuse for a PC, thanks alot lads. Smile

you must supply power to both pci-e plugs !
if you do not have enough plugs then use a 2x4pin molex to 6pin pci-e connector like this one:

I've got one of those, but I don't have enough plugs to put into both of those, It didn't work by the way, I had to leave it on system restore for over half an hour and come back to it then, I think when I get an external hard drive I'll put things on that then reformat it to oblivion, thank you for all the help none the less. Smile

You've found your problem then; I'm surprised your pc even boots without enough power to your card.

If I got one of those ordered and delievered and what not, is there a good chance of it sorting out the issues with the drivers and stuff? or will it just make it work better?
