Black screen with mouse on boot

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Anybody had an issue with a black screen on startup, where all you have is a responsive cursor? Is this a Catalyst 11.6 issue? I'm running 2x 6950's Xfired on Win7 Ultimate x64, and have had no problems until today. Safe mode gave me a display so I uninstalled and ran driver cleaner and it's all good. Just wondering before I reinstall if this is a known issue - google didn't find much relevant.

Eventual fix - moved x-fire cable from the forward ports to the ones toward the rear.

Apparently not fixed - had to reboot it today and had the same problem. Has anyone had similar x-fire issues? Removed one 6950 and everything is back to normal. This is the first time I've ever gone with an x-fire setup, so if anyone has any ideas....
