Exclamation ATi CATALYST driver install problem!

hey guys,

just recently put together my new rig:

- m/b asus p5gd1 pro
- pci-express ati radeon x550 256mb
- 2gb ddr pc3200
- q-tek 550w power supply
- benq dvd
- samsung dl dvd burner
- hitachi sata hdd 160gb
- pentium4 ht 3.2ghz lga775

but i'm having probs with my ati card for some reason.
whenever i try to install the drivers my computer freezes! this isnt supposed to happen of such a new machine.

so i tryed running the instalation program (ATI Catalyst 5.10) on win xp while in safe mode, and it loaded up fine but when it was about to install an error came up saying:'driver not found' and the program terminated.

so my question is: is there anyway to install ati catalysn while in safemode?

plz help me here i'm sorta desperate lol

You can't install the drivers in safe mode. Drivers don't load in safe mode. I tried that before. Try shutting down any processes you have running that you don't need.
