Same problem but I managed to copy the install log. I will paste it below. Please note that it says there is a problem with a supplied parameter - whatever that is - and that the Driver FAILED to install.
I don't know if it is of interest, but the two ati driver related files I am unable to remove even manually are:
In the meantime, I am downloading a new 11.6 from SAPPHIRE just in case. It is a ATI Sapphire HD 3870.
Thank you and regards.
So remove those in Safe Mode, if needed in Safe Mode Command Prompt?
If those files are very old and for some reason are "locked", the driver install will fail and then you get exactly what you describe. In which case the card would be okay and your Windows installation is somehow messed up...
Well, apart from an hour having a blood test done, my PC mad son and I have been testing the card on a 6 month old Windows 7, i5 660 CPU with all the trimmings of a very modern motherboard for about 3 hours.
Unfortunately, it looks like the card did not make the trip here because it would not even perform at all on that system. It powers up, in that the fan revolves slowly like it has done from the beginning, but nothing else at all. We even had to go to the on board graphics connection to get anything on the screen.
I suppose I can try and find another PC to try it on but I really think I am wasting my time.
What do you think?
