hey all,

looking for some advice here;

wanted to play UT3 so needed to buy a new graphics card, no problem bought one. needed a bigger psu - 400w required, so i bought a 550w to make sure.

put it in, installed it, then i restarted, and i get a free BSOD huzzah.

0xea ati2dvag i believe is the problem, says the drivers stuck on an infinate loop,

tried; new driver, older driver,bios update, bios tinkering, new psu, new cpu, new ram, took of all non essential components. - no good

my system

XP home sp2

2gb ddr

40gb ide-installation on, 40gb sata

biostar bios

M7vba motherboard, no idea what the make is.

What make is the PSU? You need one with decent amperage on the 12 volt rails

try the drivers at visiontek.com. I just installed an HD 2600 and could not load the drivers. You have to have the .net framework installed and the visiontek drivers from their site
Hope this helps

Have you formatted ?

If not

Did you uninstall the old driver for the old graphics card first ?

Boot into safe mode (F8 at boot) and remove older driver, could be causing the BSOD
