Running Windows XP with ATI Radeon X300 128Mb PCI card. Screen OK up to log on screen. When you log on screen goes black. No image on a restart. But when you reboot into safe mode screen image is fine.
I tried uninstalling the ATI drivers, screen fine with Windows XP drivers, but the Found new hardware wizard keeps appearing.

did you have an Nvidia video card in the computer before installing the ATI?
IF you did, then you may need to reinstall the Operating system in order to get the ATI card working, the Nvidia drivers and ATI drivers will conflict.
Boot the system in safe mode. Go to device manager and under display adapters , right click on the onbaord graphics adapter and disable the same. It worked on one of the systems i troubleshot for the same problem.
first thing first ensure that you have the latest ATI radeon X1600 pro driver and software installed else you won't be able to get the desired options for dual display under settings coz it will be working with generic drivers. To download the latest driver and software click here
Use PC wizard (search and download) this will detect all drivers needed on your computer note name and number for your video card type into search engine IE ati x300 drivers for your operating system xp vista you should be able to download correct drivers if does not work for you please leave reply what happens
I read somewhere that this black screen/blank screen problem is due to a hardware conflict with AMD boards that use a VIA northbridge chipset. So I tested this by installing the video card on a AMD board with a SiS chipset. Since installing on a board with the SiS chipset, I have had NO problems whatsoever. I am convinced it is a hardware incompatibility issue.
I also am running an older version of Catalyst, version 7.7, per recommendations from others. I have heard the X1050 has problems with 7.8 and above. I admit, I have risked it and subsequently updated the drivers through windows update, without any problems, but have not updated Catalyst. Still running fine.
