Thanks for playing Catalyst Russian Roulette! Though, if your Big Bang has some sort of Lucid Hydra, nforce 200 sort of thing, that could be hampering something with your Crossfire setup...

Tried removing a card or isolating the problem?
Fail.

Yea, but that's overkill when you could just delete the registry settings and reboot instead (simplified explanation).

To work around this behavior and display devices when you click Show hidden devices:
  1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Command Prompt.
  2. At a command prompt, type the following command , and then press ENTER:set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1
  3. Type the following command a command prompt, and then press ENTER:start devmgmt.msc
  4. Troubleshoot the devices and drivers in Device Manager.

    NOTE: Click Show hidden devices on the View menu in Device Manager before you can see devices that are not connected to the computer.
  5. When you finish troubleshooting, close Device Manager.
  6. Type exit at the command prompt.

    Note that when you close the command prompt window, Window clears the devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1 variable that you set in step 2 and prevents ghosted devices from being displayed when you click Show hidden devices.
Once you have the ghosted devices shown, uninstall any old graphics cards that are greyed out in device manager.
