Catalyst keeps crashing

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

I have XFX 6950 unlocked to 6970 specs with the latest Catalyst drivers. I keep getting catalyst control center has crashed error. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but problem keeps coming up. when launching the center, it also crashes. I googled the problem and many people seem to be having it. I also tried the 12.2 beta drivers, but same problem. I am trying to overclock it but cant launch it. Anyone else having this problem?

I'm not but then again I have an older card. Maybe try just keeping it at 6950 and see if the problem continues. No use in having a "better" card that crashes then having a slightly worse card that runs just great thumb.gif

Uninstall Catalyst and all third party software such as Afterburner, Atitool, etc.

 

Clean it with (turn off UAC to install this file); Atiman Uninstaller v.6.3.1

 

Install Official Catalyst 12.1; http://sites.amd.com/us/game/downloads/Pages/radeon_win7-64.aspx
