crossfire induced trouble, and seemingly dead graphics cards. need help

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
hey everyone. I decided to pick up another card (gigabyte 7950) and do crossfire. Upon getting everything up and running and installing 12.10 drivers everything seemed to be fine and working just as i had hoped. Without really thinking about it i decided to download the 12.11 beta drivers. About halfway during the installation process, while i was messing around with some fan settings, my computer froze and shut itsself off. It now goes to blue screen everytime it starts up with the graphics card, either one or two. I try and go into safe mode to reinstall drivers, but it always says detection failed, like it cannot find the cards or something. it does however work fine with the cards out and boots up properly, but as soon as i try again it does the same thing. did i destroy these cards? something bad must have happened when it shut offf as it was installing the drivers. if anyone has insight that would be great, i just spent a ton of money on these and hate to see it go to waste

Work with either card alone?

It's not installing in safe mode because basic VGA drivers are installed. You'd have to be in a normal environment for the installer to detect the cards.

Could try manually removing the drivers for the cards and then restarting normally.

i have, tried just a single card, and witha clean install and still nothing. it is like when the computer shut off it wiped the into off the card, like what they warn you about on ps3s and such, and not it is just undetectable to my ssytem, and because of that i cannot install drivers. I will keep playing aorund with it. i have the cards out now and am using my hd4k. im lost, and sad. i have had crossfire going on this computer before, same setup and everything, and it worked great. not sure what to do here. oh and also installing from th e provided disc does not help either

do you got another video card that works? don't matter if it's a nvidia or another AMD/ATI video card? if so use that and see if it'll detect that if not then it may not be the cards but rather the motherboard. smile.gif

i find it odd that the cards go from working great to not working then the sound going out.

i know what you mean, see about getting that video card and try it out. if it does work or not then you'll know where to go from there... smile.gif i been down the road where a video stops working for no apparent reason, last year my video card stopped working in that same fashion only to find out that my Video card was fine but my Motherboard was trashed. also if you got another computer that accepts the PCI-E cards use that computer to test each card to see if they detect aswell if that's a viable option to you smile.gif

i mean, that not really a good option though, to just try olut another 6 year old card. something. obviously went wreng when the computer crashed and now i need to get my 600 dollar investment working again. i honestly dont know what to do short of return them.

edit- ialso what information is all sored on the card at its stock settinggs? i feel as if though this is the imformation that was wiped from the card. i am now beginnin to think the card is actually being picked up within the system, since it tries to boot up with the display, but cannot find any data so crashes. maybe the same reason why it cannot find the auto detect drivers?

wow somebody help im pissed
