BSOD when updating ATI drivers on Windows 7 64 bit

I have an ATI Radeon HD 2400 Pro video card. Back in October I attempted to install the latest ATI drivers in the hope that it would resolve a problem I was having (I was previously using the drivers that came with Windows 7). I downloaded the lasted driver at the time (9.9) from the ATI website and then ran the install. Imagine my surprise when I got the following (sorry about the image quality, I used the camera on my phone):

BSOD when installing ATI Drivers

It turns out that I wasn’t the only one getting these blue screens of death. I think it’s totally unacceptable that a major hardware vendor can release drivers or software that cause a BSOD of death during install. Don’t they test these things?

Since then ATI have released newer drivers. I have successfully managed to install version 9.11 – although it didn’t fix the problem. However. that doesn’t change the fact that ATI released drivers that not only wouldn’t install, but crashed Windows.

It’s just not good enough!
