MSI 6970 not recognized

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have installed the card. Used the included disc to install all drivers and utilities apart from Amd Catalyst Control Center. Downloaded the newest AMD Catalyst control center from AMD website and installed.
I can play games fine and MSI Afterburner knows what card it is.
But MSI Active Phase Switching comes up with an error ' unknown graphics card! '
MSI update 4 didn't recognize my video card so i uninstalled and got newest from MSI.com but it wont even open. Not even after reboot.
When I run a MSI kombuster benchmark vertical, yellow lines start flashing randomly.

I have the BIOS switch on the video card on performance which increases the GPU and memory headroom in AMD CCC overdrive. It also increases the PowerTune limit by 2.5 times allowing the overclocked card to perform optimally without throttling.

APS? Whats that?

What BIOS switch for what and what does 'M' do?

Forum rules do state to not use acronyms as much as possible and to try and put as much info into your post as possible.
