I'm the opposite, I can get the drivers installed (albeit through the device manager) but I can't get CCC installed .

Sorry that didn't work. From some searching I did this seems to be a problem with your card that a lot of people are having.

Read this topic. Try what the guy in post #13 says. Seems to have fixed the problem for some. They had the same problem as you, no crashing under load but during 2D stuff it would. With that said, this is something a driver update should fix soon. Good ole ATI drivers. So many people say they have got better but I guess I missed the part where they were worse then what they are now. The only ATI card I ever had that didn't have one problem was my 3850. Other then that, driver problems every single time!

Any way, I think that fix in post #13 will fix you up. Let us know!

an update and in case anyone else runs into this.

I started crashing again when the background changing was disabled so i did what that guy said in that post.

But i want to add some info. To find the *PROFILENAME.XML (your profile name), you have to have hidden files and folders turned on in your folder options.

I was goin crazy searching around and then realized i never turned on hidden files and folders when i installed windows 7.

Thanks for the help guys.

Sounds more like bad video memory than driver issues to me.

*edit*
From one of the links posted:

Well i have had the problem since i got my VTX ones.. Then found a guide that shows that on idle the core drops to 157mhz and as the memory stays at 1200mhz it causes it to crash. Mine has been working fine recently and what i did was create a profile in CCC then browse to the *PROFILENAME.XML file and modify the setting from 157000 to 300000 and it has not crashed since..

I have noticed that there seems to be a lot of topics here lately on here and other forums about this problem.

It is not just ATI owners. Nvidia owners are having the same problem, me being one of them. It is just a different driver name(nvlddmkm). Personally I do not think it is a driver or card issue, had my card RMA'd. In my case I think it is hardware related. But could be a different problem in your situation.

You could try changing the 2D clocks using Rivatuner
