Hi I'm new to this website but seems that I try looking everywhere for my answer.

Ok so I've installed the latest driver for my ati radeon x700 video card and everytime I reboot, my pc shuts down right before loading the welcome screen.

I have tried drivercleaner and omega drivers but seems that this problem doesn't go away. I took a print screen picture so you can see. Any help would be appreciated. thanks

Neat. First problem, you don't have some of your chipset drivers installed...give us model and manufacturer of your computer or motherboard, and we can help you sort that out.

Try this: completely uninstall all ATI drivers, boot to Safe Mode, and run driver cleaner there for ATI.

Ok, install these:

assuming you have Windows XP, and let's see what effect that has on the problem.

Is it still showing the smbus controller and ethernet controller under other devices?

Also: Do you currently have listings for ATI in Add/Remove Programs?

Alright, cool. Now that you've got the proper chipset drivers installed, run DC in safe mode again, reboot to normal mode, and try installing the latest ATI drivers for that card. Let's see what happens.

Also: I'm guessing you've tried right clicking on the cards in device manager, selecting "uninstall," and restarting, and it has no effect, correct?
