This will properly disable ULPS, follow exactly as below;

1. Go to regedit (start > search programs and files > "regedit").

2. In drop down menu: find file > type "enableulps".

3. For ALL instances (keep pressing F3) change the "1" value to a "0".

4. Reboot PC.

If it's related to Punkbuster;

Go to Afterburner folder to rename RTCore.exe to AnythingRTCore.exe

Have tried all the versions that are out there. Including 2.2.0 Beta 9.

I tried disabling ULPS manualy like you suggested, and by the Disable ULPS "app" that has been posted on this forum. Even with everything set to 0 i get BSOD.

I get the good old atikmpag.sys BSOD

Eggy88,

 

Something is missing, must be something else.

 

What are the cards running at? x16/x8/x4 ?

 

Have tested your RAM each stick individually?

They are running at 16x/8x/8x

Nope have not tried the RAM one at the time.

This is what's happening.

I open AB and it works all fine, monitoring all the cards etc and no BSOD, i can play for hours and hours while AB is running in the background with no crash og BSOD.

If i adjust the clockspeed or the voltage on the cards with AB i get some small flickering on the monitor when i press apply 50% of the time, and instant BSOD 50% of the time. Adjusting the clockspeed with CCC works like a charm.

The fact that the computer is not at load, and that the BSOD occurs the second i make changes with AB tells me it's not something else.

Ah you are out of lucks, MSI Afterburner doesn't support other competitors non-reference 6950/6970s.

All my cards are ref 6970s.

Hmm.... last thing is to make sure to edit the .cfg file correctly. You have to exit CCC Overdrive/CCC and Afterburner prior to editing, otherwise it will be defaulted by Afterburner.

 

There's no secret and it must work if done right.

Wait a second. This only happends after i Unlock the "Unofficial Overclock mode" in AB.

I have allways added the line "I confirm that I am aware of unofficial overclocking limitations and fully understand that MSI will not provide me any support on it" to UnofficialOverclockingEULA and changed UnofficialOverclockingMode to 1, now i noticed alot of guys using 2 instead of 1 to Disable PowerPlay.

Could this be it?

You don't mess with ULPS in .cfg. In latest Beta 9, that funtion is available in Afterburner settings "enable/disable low level hardware access". I think it could be it that conflicts and causes BSODs.

I know that u dont mess with ULPS in the .cfg.

But it is the cfg editing (Unlocking Unofficial OC mode) that make me BSOD in AB.

This happend before the Beta 9 as well.

Uninstall Afterburner and select "no" to keep the settings. Go to Afterburner folder and delete all left-over and install Beta 9. Do the unlocking from Afterburner in "setting". Try this.
