I think that the driver you installed either became corrupt from the HD condition, or is a bad driver. Since you most likely need a new hard drive, go ahead and install the drivers again from ATI, and then ghost your hard drive over to the new one when you get it. Or another option, if you are going to reinstall everything onto the new hard drive is just to leave it. Just in case, here's a link to the driver download page:

For Windows XP.

Just to be on the safe side, you should download a HDD diagnostic program available from your drive manufacturer's website. That way you'll know for sure if it's the drive that's bad. :D
