Default radeon hd 3650 driver problem?

hi all (: i'm not exactly the geekiest kid out there, so i apologize for any vagueness in advance.

i just got the ATI radeon hd 3650 video card for christmas. after installing it, my windows hardware wizard keeps telling me the drivers arent installed. i was running onboard video before(from an ASUS A8V-MX motherboard), and only upgraded to play the sims :P i uninstalled the ASUS drivers before installing the new graphics card. in addition, my computer is freezing randomly and spontaneously rebooting.

i've googled and googled but can't seem to find an answer.. does anybody here have one?

power supply is 500w, so i don't think it has much to do with that.

thank you so much, and if you need any more information i'll gladly hand it over. (:

Does it have an exclamation mark against it in device manager?

It means the driver isn't installed. Download it from ATI's website, follow the installer and you should be all set.
