ATI2DVAG.dll - BSOD at Shutdown

Since I have installed Windows 7 on this PC, I have been getting an error when shutting down. Everytime I shutdown or restart, I get a blue screen of death which refers to "ATI2DVAG.dll" - so it's a graphics card issue. Well when it happens, the computer repeatedly reboots and I have to turn it off by the switch.

I'm currently running a ATI Radeon 7200 on this PC, old I know.

In an effort to resolve my problem, I have followed advice I found on the internet and uninstalled the graphics card drivers to try and do a fresh reinstall. I uninstalled the Radeon 7200 drivers from the device manager then ran Driver Cleaner Pro to remove anything left over. I read that Windows 7 will automatically install drivers for me, which it did.

But, it hasn't installed Radeon 7200 drivers - I'm not sure what exactly is going on. Instead of showing "RADEON 7200" under Display Adapters on the Device Manager, it shows "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter".

Now - the highest resolution I can go to is only 1024x768 and I can't seem to install Radeon 7200 drivers. The BSOD has gone now that the graphics card drivers aren't installed, but now I can't install the graphics card drivers at all..

Any help?
Thanks - Stealth

Windows 7 simply installed generic driver, so your screen is not blank.
Go to ATI site, download and install fresh driver.
