I have tried to install an ATI driver and it will get so far and then the computer will go back to the start-up screen with an error message. Please help me, thanks.

With that little information you gave use it is impossible to help you. We need to know at least:
- distribution
- graphics hardware
- which drivers and how you installed them
- were there any error-messages?
