Option to enable Crossfire not showing up? (6950s, 955, MSI 790XT) - Page 2

post #11 of 45
Try a different driver... Driver sweeper does more harm than good btw.
All u need to do these days is uninstall via control panel.

I tried 11.11 at first, then rolled back to 11.10. Should I go back even farther? Ok sounds good, I will use control panel from now on, Now that I think about it, I have heard some bad things about driver sweeper.

Did you make sure that your all drivers are up to date? including bios updates?

What drivers would I need to make sure are up to date besides the amd drivers? Would I really need a bios update just to support crossfire?

Who knows? have you tried both cards in all pcie slots? do they both actually work without crossfire?
post #16 of 45
I had the same problem with my 5850's. I removed both cards and installed an old nvidia cad I had lying around and removed all ati drivers and deleted the ati directory. Then I shut down, reinstalled both ati cards and did a fresh driver install. That solved the problem.

Ive have been running the first one for about a year, and the second one was working before it was shipped. i dont really have the ability to test cards in different slots or by themselves as the first card is underwater, I will be living in my dorm for another week and a half, and I am in the midst of final exams. redface.gif. Thats why I am hoping for a quick fix hehe.

What do you mean when you say you deleted the ati directory?

usually when you install the catalyst driver package, a directory is created on the c drive where the driver package extracts to. I don't know if deleting that folder is a necessary step but I did it just for good measure and did a fresh install and it seemed to work.

I hear that here and there, I haven't had a problem with Driver Sweeper. Anyway, if you haven't tried the newest card by itself, then try that. Otherwise, maybe reinstalling Windows will do the trick? It's usually my solution when I'm sick of messing with a problem.
