I don't know if this is related to your issue or not but I can re-produce the crash by the followings;

 

1. Windows Screen Resolution > Change refresh rate.

2. Overwite Catalyst Driver with latest 3/19/2012 http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/HD78007Support.aspx

3. Restart PC > open BF3 > instant crash.

4. Go back to Windows Screen Resolution > set the correct refresh rate > Restart PC > problem solved.

 

The only problem I could imagine why you crash with lastest Catalyst (#2 above) contains updated EDID for the monitors. You are on Eyefinity, might worth to look into the refresh rate for each monitors see if that will fix it.

 

So if you are on Eyefinity, disable it then set each monitor as primary with correct refresh rate. If all of them not crash starting games then enable Eyefinity.

Could someone help me?

The card is simply ****.

Or its AMD being terrible at drivers, as usual. I returned mine because it keep freezing my PC when it has been idle for a couple hours.
post #6883 of 38704

Can you test with another card in your system if it will crash after idle and waking up from sleep? Are you really sure it's the card fault?

Yeah, maybe some systems work better with nVidia cards.

Just because you're frustrated it doesn't mean you have to be rude

I got the new drivers working with some work.


Step by step for those having trouble installing new drivers. This is a little long but worth it.

  • Go to the control panel/ programs and uninstall ALL AMD software.
  • Once that has completed, reboot your machine.
  • Then run ATIMAN and run (A) un-install, let it reboot and do the rest.
  • Then run Driver Cleaner and select ALL ATI products and run it. It did find a decent amount of stuff ATIMAN did not find.
  • Reboot and then run the new driver installation. You may get an error saying "Driver Install: the INF file was not found" this was removed by Driver Cleaner.
  • Go to device manager, select your cards and manually point the update driver to the ATI folder with the new drivers and make sure you let it search the sub folders.
  • Once windows installs the drivers, reboot your machine.
  • Go back to the control panel/programs and open the ATI software and select remove ALL software again (it will still install even when you get the INF error)
  • Reboot your machine, run the new driver pack again, it should install flawlessly this time. If you have 3 monitors, don't worry, they will flicker probably about 11 times and "dadoop" sound from windows.
  • Once they complete, reboot and you should be gold.


I was able to set up Eyefinity without ANY issue like last time I tried installing them. No errors, crashes or BSODs. BF3 started up without a hitch. I haven't tried any other games so it's not my fault if they don't work for you.

I am running 5996x1080 @ ULTRA everything, Anti Def off, ANTI Post High, Blur off, 16 AF and I am running 8X AA standard in CCC + AA Adaptive Multi Sample and I am not getting under 60 (vsync on) on campaign mode on Operation Guillotine. This is running at stock clocks on CPU (3.4/4) and 7950 (800/1250X2).

If you do this and it does work for you, please give me some rep wink.gif

If I may add, avoid Driver Sweeper because some systems will fail after deleteng files especially users with AMD CPU. It is more than enough to delete the remaining folders which ATIman Uninstaller didn't delete.

 

Delete these folders;

  • C:\user\Program files\ ATI & AMD.
  • C:\user\Program files (x86)\ ATI & AMD.
  • C:\user\ProgramData\ATI & AMD (need to show hidden files).
