Default New ATI All In Wonder 9600 Pro doesn't please

Hey, guys,
I just bought a ATI AIW 9600 pro and I'm using Windows XP . This is my system:

Windows XP Professional SP2
AMD Athlon XP 1800+
Biostar M7NCG 400
Crucial DDR 512MB + 256MB
DirectX 9.0c

I got my driver from here. I installed the CATALYST driver and rebooted, everything looks fine expect for ATI Catalyst Control Center failed to start. It says
The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000135). Click ok to terminate the application.
I tried two games (Pro Evolution Soccer 4 AND GTA Vice city) and they both had the same problem, that is when it gets to 3D, the screen started to have a lot of noise, and the objects all became angular shapes and ‘fuzzy’ polygons. When I quit the game, my XP has lots of noise on the screen too. I googled around, trying to find some solutions but got no luck. However, lookes like some people in this post has the same problem as i do (e.g. Comment #6, #9). Can anyone please help me solve the problem? Thanks.
