More details in your next post, or most members will definitely look this over, and you will be left to troubleshoot this yourself.

What screen comes up when you open Catalyst? What version of drivers are you using? What Operating System are you using? What video card are you using?

Yeah, I know. Sorry about the short post, I was in a hurry.

About the catalyst I will show two screenshots, one on my computer, and one found online of what it should look like.
