heh, ati's blue screen of death. I was warned about something like that from a friend who now buys nvivia.
I think it would be something with the card on your computer. I'd probably just take it back. I had a somewhat similar experience with my computer, I tried putting an x800 pro into it and it would black screen after start up and it wouldn't load windiws xp (*edit, which I notice that the thread hasn't been closed yet, heh*). So I just took it back and used the money to buy a 6800 gt.
I don't know if it would be a faulty video card or just your computer. I'd guess it would be compatibility issues or something of that sort.
