5870 cf bad frame rate issue

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi!


Ive had some problems with my two unreference 5870s for a while now.

Everything works fine if i have crossfire unchecked in CCC. Today today I made a huge mistake. I decided to overclock the GPU about 20 mhz higher since I wanted higher performance in a game and now i get stuck in bluescreen each time i try to startup.

I wont be able to remove one of the GPUs since everything is connected with my water cooling loop and only that would take weeks cause i just dont have the time to uninstall the WC.

As I said, Ive had these problems for around 1 year now.

Should I remove the watercooling and come up with a solution and be without a computer for 2 weeks? Or perhaps reset the GPU in someway???

Im sitting in Safe mode at the moment doing nothing.
Please help me.

/Erik

UPDATE: Solved the blue screen problem but im still having huge fps problems when xfire is activated.

Go into safe mode, and remove the overclock there. (F8 after BIOS, before Windows loads). Once you have it removed, reboot and it should turn on like normal.

Is it possible to reset the GPU overclock in bios as well?

No, GPU overclocks are done via Windows (usually CCC, MSI Afterburner, or Sapphire Trixxx). So you'll need to remove the overclock with whatever program you used to make it. Or you could also just completely uninstall said program and / or your drivers while in safe mode too.

OK, Uninstalled CCC and afterburner in safe mode with driver sweeper. Restarted and went to AMDs web site.
Installed the correct drivers for my GPU.

Now there is a yellow question-mark and it says Installation complete (warnings occurred during installion). View log for details.

Theres also a View Log button and if i click it some information pop up.

It will be easier to unisntall the driver for both adapters. In safe mode > Device Manager > Adapter Displays > select uninstall, delete driver too.

Reboot to normal mode, uninstall Catalayst and whatever you use to OC.

Right click the device with yellow warning sign then select update driver, browse to the folder where you extracted Catalyst.

Just ignore it because the Catalyst tried to install VC++ which is older than installed version.

Go to device manager and if there is no yellow warning error sign, everything should be fine.

Okay, i went into the device manager and saw yellow warning signs on both my graphic cards, will try to do update drivers as you said.

EDIT: went into CCC and it updated for me. The warning signs are now gone and will try to see if the pc crashes when i play a game.

If you wish to use Afterburner, download latest version 2.2.0 Beta 8.

Then disable ULPS, your crossfire will work now.

How to disable ULPS see this thread http://www.overclock.net/amd-ati/115...ed-issues.html

For non reference 5870s I don't think you have the voltage control so don't crack your head to figure it out.

Either way, you should be fine now.

Enjoy the game.
