*BACKSTORY*
Hey guys, after suffering a terrible ordeal of issues from blue screens, power failure and random errors, I replaced my old NVIDIA GTS 250 which seemed to be a culprit. 200 dollars down the drain on my Radeon 6870, and I find that Windows can't even install properly, many update errors and whatnot. Sleep mode was also still not functioning, causing a bluescreen. Frustrated, I reinstalled again with one stick of RAM instead of both. Two more installs later and I'm happy to say I have a working computer with a failed video card and stick of RAM on my desk. What a nightmare of errors.

*PROBLEM*
Now that i've reinstalled for the 5th time, I'm finally error free and ready to do some setting up and general cleanup. This is honestly the first time i've had enough time error free to install my Catalyst drivers. EACH AND EVERY TIME I boot up, despite what I click or change, I keep getting this message. If you look at the picture I attach, you can see the Catalyst Control Center icon in the tray, running, and the Windows Trying To Detect This Device crap that just doesn't understand haha. Anyways, thanks in advance. Also, if anyone who has helped me with errors previously views this, We've found the problem. (Also Avast is very nice instead of McAfee, thank you. You know who you are)

For some reason, when I got to Vista Service Pack 2 finally, this issue resolved itself. Closed.
