You can download the drivers from ATI, not through the utility but directly:

http://www2.ati.com/drivers/mobile/12-2_mobility_vista_win7_32_dd_ccc.exe (32 bit)

Here's a video that talks about it: [noembed]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t2_thUnvJv4[/noembed]

MSI Afterburner running? That one's causing lot of problems elsewhere, black screens and such. Please shoot it down and try without it. We'll need to add detection of the program.

I should probably know this, but what are the gray and red icons on the right of you taskbar?

Oh am I missing something here?  How did your folder layout end up like that?

Im gonna do a reinstall and run it from its original position.I made a copy of the original folder and put it on my desktop so i didnt have to keep going to computer/programs and clicking on it. The grey icon is for my music program,and the red is for avg security virus program.

Reinstalled, left everything on default,got about 4 minutes of gametime and driver crashed.

Also, the red icon which i mixed up with avg is called smart copy

Driver crashes mean a buggy implementation of OpenGL or a hardware problem, no driver crash is supposed to happen from the way an application uses it. But it's odd that you have so many of them, when others with 4xxx cards are better.

One thing - why do you have also a Nvidia driver installed there?

This is the only game i've had probles with my drivers closing.

Here are a list of some of the nvidia drivers i still have that may be interfering with whatever is causing the crashes.

Those are for the mainboard chipset, should not be problem.

Most of other games are using DirectX, and apart from that we are using newer OpenGL features that weren't verified by other games before. It took a year of bug reporting and beta drivers testing to get it working on ATI at all.

Your using an AMD card with an Nvidia board?  It probably shouldn't matter, but may I ask why?

Owners of ATI 7xxx cards: Please use the beta 12.4 drivers available from here, reported to work with Outerra.

Others who have problems with ATI cards could give it a shot as well.
