XFX 6970 Crossfire Causing Bluescreens

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I have been have blue screens almost every day or a couple times of day. I am not sure what is causing it, but a lot of the times I will have multiple tabs open in Chrome including YouTube, and I will have my game open at the same time but minimized.
When ever the blue screen does happen, it says a message about updating my graphics driver, or make sure it is all hardware is installed properly.
I have made sure that my drivers are up to date. Nothing is overclocked other then my ram timings being bumped up a little.

If more information is needed, I will get that.

system specs:
AMD PHenom II x6 1100t 3.3ghz
Gigabyte GA-890FXA
XFX 6970's Crossfire
Patriot Gamer 1333 16gb
Antec 850w PS
Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

Disable "Hardware Acceleration" in Youtube or Flashpplayer. Right click on Youtube to get the menu.

Also, restore the RAM to default whatever the BIOS set it to.

The BSOD codes might help to identify the cause.
