I recently bought a HD Radeon 4670 for my Windows XP computer, and I have enough PCI slots for it (X16). I played several games for one or two days, but I noted deteriorating performance on the second day. I had installed the drivers on a disc that came with the video card.
Suddenly, my PC crashed one day, and after I restarted it, it loaded, then came to a black screen with much writing, asking me to either start the computer in "Safe Mode, Safe Mode with command prompt, Safe Mode with networking, [to] start windows normally or to start with last working settings. Naturally, I chose start windows normally, but after a few seconds of loading as normal, it came to a blue screen with a large amount of writing and an error message saying "STOP 0X00000QED (0X8b2b9900, 0xC0000006, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)" at the bottom preceded by various paragraphs saying to uninstall any hardware I may have recently installed.
But I am unable to boot the computer in any mode, including Safe Mode, so I can't delete the drivers I recently installed, and which I am certain to be the subject.
Also, I have realised that I did not delete the drivers on my previous video card, a Radeon X600, and I am wondering if this is a driver conflict or is it outdated drivers, or what?
