Default Catalyst Drivers Crash Computer

All catalyst drivers are crashing my computer endlessly. They're not installed at present, but I can't play games without them

I'm a bit of a noob, are there any alternative drivers I can use, or alternative means of aquiring the drivers or ANY way that I can play games without them?

Thanks !

Yes, I've downloaded them. It's only after I've downloaded them that my computer starts to crash

you probably just need to clear all traces of prev catalyst and drivers then do a fresh install of the catalyst. (Iv had same problem)

click this link an wait a few seconds to download freeware version of driver sweeper.

Driversweeper

You don't need 3 threads for this one problem. I've closed HELP! Brand new computer crashing! and How do I get drivers without the driver disk?. Future posts can still use those threads for reference.

I've tried reinstalling windows completely and then installing the drivers again, but that still doesn't help, it always crashes after downloading the drivers.

The manufacturer wants me to remove the graphics card and send it to them for a replacement
