Ok so that is built onboard. Did you go into bios and disable onboard? If you just disabled it in device manager then the chipset is still active when you bootup.
Try rebooting and at first post screen where it counts up the memory tap the DEL key. That will get you into bios\cmos area. Do not change anything unless instructed to do so. Look for the area that says something about "Integrated" and then look for onboard display. If it is set to enable then highlight it and click the enter key. This should bring up a little box. Change the setting to disabled by checking the bottom of the screen and it should tell you how to change it. Usually it will be the page up or page down or + or - buttons. When it's set to disabled then click the F10 button to save and exit. you will be prompted again to save and exit. Click Y and the system should now reboot.
Once in windows then see if it is working and post the results in your next reply

Let me ask, you said something a few posts back and I just found it again..Can you explain what you meant by the highlighted text in the below quote

"but the ati graphics card problem i still have.and im still yet to get a replie on there site after 6 days.for some reason it only works correct on extended desktop and i still have to reinstall it after a reboot. "

Interesting, then the catalyst is over riding the windows settings. Let's try something. Boot up and don't use catalyst.
Right click on your desktop where there are no icons>click on properties>
In the window that opens click on the Settings tab
please include the following in fo in your next reply

Display>>this is your monitor
Screen resolution 0000x0000>>>> what are the 0's
Color Quality

Then click on advance button and find Adaptor tab>>>>what does it say for adaptor type

So all you have is the Theme tab and none of the others?
Thats really strange, try going at it this way
Start>Control Panel>Display
then see if the tabs on top show up

still no tabs,theres no theme tab either,but its on the themes window,could this be the same cause as to why the catalist center doesnt have tabs in normal mode?and why i couldnt get some of the programs in the malware section to work?because those programs look like they were(broken) to.

This could very well be. It just struck me funny when you said what you did in post 66
Now maybe this is starting to come together. What is catalyst part of?
