XFX 7950GT 512mb - AGP - Driver Install Probs

Just purchased the above card to replace my X850XT PE.

 

1st card that I was sent would not install any drivers, and had blocks and artifacts all over the screen, so had it replaced.

 

New card arrived, and with this one the drivers will install, but on reboot it gets just past the XP splash screen, then a black screen.....nothing else.

 

The LED on my monitor (normal LCD monitor (non-hd)) stays green, so there is a signal from the card. The place that I purchased it from are now saying that the problem is most probably a bug with my motherboard or XP installation.

 

I uninstalled my old drivers, and ran driver cleaner in safe mode before installing this card. Any ideas? Tried everything I can think of, would a fresh install of XP do the trick?

 

Thanks in advance.....just about pulled out all my hair :sad:

Problem sorted now.

 

I reset the bios and all back to default, looks like my overclock was preventing the drivers to install.....even though it was rock solid with my previous card.

 

Looks like I will have to start all over again with my o/c with this card.

 

Once I have done that I will look at o/cing the 7950GT....all advice gratefully recieved :angel:
