Default Radeon Catalyst problems

First of all hello everybody. First time here for me, but with the list of problems I have probably nowhere near the last!

I seem to be having a problem with the catalyst drivers from ATI with my radeon graphics card. I installed the card (Sapphire Radeon 9550 AGPx8 256mb) when I got it last November with Catalyst 4.08 and everything was fine. I then updated the driver to 4.10 and still no problems. However everytime I try to update to 4.11 or above when I reboot my pc is slow to respond and the CPU meter is showing 60 - 100% usage with only task manager running.

Anyway earlier this week I tried to install a Sapphire Radeon x700 256mb card which was supplied with Catalyst 5.4. When I rebooted exactly the same problem occurred. 60 - 100% CPU usage. I uninstalled the drivers and ran cleandriver 3 in safe mode to completely remove any trace of previous drivers and tried again, but with the same result.

Is there any solutions to this problem? I am running Windows XP Professional, AMD XP2600, 1GB Ram on a ASUS A7V8X-X. Any help would be appreciated

Yeah, try using other 3rd party drivers like Omega Drivers...the Catalyst Drivers are known to be kinda loco.

Thanks for that, but yes. I have tried both the original ATI drivers and omega drivers, but got the same result. Can't understand why 4.10 will work, but nothing above?
