Need help with HD7970, BLUESCREEN!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello, I tried to flash my hd7970 to Ghz edition
But then I got an error that said I need tot upgrade Catalyst Control Center to the latest version.
So that's what I did, but when I rebooted i got a bluescreen?!

Next thing I did was boot in safe mode, and tried to install older version of ccc
But I got an error which said:"Failed to initialize detection manager.
I don't know what else I can do, and I would like to go into windows normally without bluescreens..
The bluescreen appears after it finishes the windows logo, when the login screen should appear..
Does anyone know what I could do?
Please help!!

So, you took a standard 7970 and tried to flash it to 7970 GHZ speeds. You realise that the GHZ edition card uses binned processors, if your card can't get to those speeds it will always BSOD on boot up.

If you're lucky, you can get into safe mode and then flash the card back to it's standard BIOS... What were you trying to achieve by flashing this card in that fashion??

Oh btw, as for your issue, boot into save mode, uninstall CC and drivers, run driver sweeper, reboot into normal mode then reinstall drivers.

Thanks for the response.
I read a lot about people who flashed their HD7970 to Ghz edition and thought it would be safe..
Guess I was a little naive..
Firstly I'll try to reinstall an older version of CC and with a bit of luck this will solve the bsod..
Since the bsod started after the ccc update and not after flashing the HD7970?
I'll try to flash it back to the original bios, but I'm not real sure on how I should do that?

No idea mate, you'll need to find a standard BIOS I guess, as for the people who flash theirs, it's probably because they have checked the GPU to see how high it can go already and they are flashing it for the voltages or something.

Any chance I can find the standard bios on any of the discs supplied when I bought it?
Well I'll search for a standard bios, and I guess it will be just manually OC'ing the card..
Thought this would be a simple solution, but apparently it really didn't..
Thanks for your help and I'll post back if it worked later today when I'm back home!

Any chance there is a dual bios switch on your card? If you can, just flash the old bios back, it sounds like the bios you choose is unstable for your card.

The techpowerup database posted about has a lot of bioses if you do not have the switch on your GPU.

I found the dual bios switch and turned it to the other mode..
This fixed the problem, so I guess i'll have to download a bios from the site provided by The Mac and everything will be fixed!
I guess i've learned that messing around with bios'es isn't really smart unless you know what you're doing..
Thank you guys! thumb.gif

You can hotflash, so boot up with the good bios, hit the switch when fully booted, then flash and it will over write the bad one.
