I still get scrabbled screen though. But its no longer daily more like weekly. If that didn't fix it I don't know what else did.

You're using a gaming 120hz/144 hz monitor like I am, so you seem to be affected by the same bug I'm reporting.

Ok I need you to do a test and then report back here with your results, and, if positive, please PM Thracks about it (since he has direct contact with the driver team, perhaps he can get them to do an emergency fix for beta 8).

Follow these exact instructions.
(Btw you're using multiple cards so YMMV; it's easiest to use a SINGLE card and use the DVI-DL input for this test)
1) Set the monitor at native refresh rate and resolution
2) DISABLE overdrive and any other overclocking on your cards (Trixx, etc)
3) Run GPU-Z and notice the clock speeds for the card. It should be 925/1375 for standard cards and anywhere between 1000-1050 mhz core, 1500 mhz Ram, for ghz edition cards.
4) pay close attention to the GPU voltage. If it shows 0.949v and 500 mhz on the core, then your card is ramped up slightly for 120hz+ opertion. That's fine. If it shows 300/150 and 0.804v or 0.850v, then this test probably won't work, disregard the rest. This test should work for most people with 120hz/1400hz gaming displays.
5) Go to youtube with flash hardware acceleration (and internet exploder acceleration enabled) and watch a video. The clocks should show 501 mhz and 1375(or 1500 for ghz edition) Ram, and 0.949v.

Close your browser.

6) Now ENABLE overdrive and/or clock the RAM on the cards 50-150 mhz above stock (whatever you already know works).
7) Open GPU-Z. Pay close attention to the RAM speed and the GPU voltage at 500 mhz (idle 2d). If your card goes into 3d volts once you pass "stock" speeds on the Ram overclock(1375 or 1500) and the GPU voltage shows 1.050-1.25v (somewhere inbetween) and the RAM clocks are set to your overdrive speeds while the GPU is idle in windows at 500 mhz, then you verified the driver bug, and you will PROBABLY get scrambled screens in videos/browser pages.

8) Now watch a video. If you're unlucky, your screen will scramble as soon as you start playback. IF you're lucky, you will see the RAM *downclock* itself suddenly to 1500 mhz (1375 for non ghz cards)and the GPUv go to 0.949v while the video is playing. Stop the video (Alt F4 if you got scrambled) and either the card will jump back to your overdrive RAM speeds and the GPU will kick back into 3d volts or it will scramble while doing it.

The bug is, at 500 mhz, the RAM speeds should NEVER exceed stock even if you have overdrive on. This bug will NOT happen unless you are using a 120hz or 144hz display and the GPU is forced to 500 mhz in 2D. The gpuv goes into 3D because the Ram boost speeds are on due to the bug; the 500 mhz and the 1000 mhz (ghz cards) settings are NEVER supposed to exceed the default RAM speeds.

Notice that if the overdrive RAM speeds are set to or UNDER the stock speeds, the GPU correctly runs at 0.949v.

Rather major bug, IMO (only affecting 120/144 hz displays)

Hello.
Can somebody PLEASE just tell me what to do so I don't get a BSOD when activating crossfire from CCC? It used to be from time to time, like 1 in ten switches but now it's like every single time and it's the most annoying thing about these drivers.

I have 2x7970m on a Clevo 370EM. I can play most of the games in single card mode on High and Very High Settings, without having to worry about FPS but on Crysis 3 I could really use the extra frames from Crossfire use.

Any suggestion is welcomed.

Hi,

have you tried the new Beta? http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/Pages/radeonaiw_vista64.aspx

Suppose to have a crossfire fix for Crysis3. I would try multiple installs of the driver if the first doesnt work, they seem to be a hit or miss for me. Good luck.
post #684 of 958
The funny thing is that I can not seem to be able to download it. Just 20 kb/s and then at a point it stops.. Tried from guru3d, amd and softpedia.
Although I think the sources of the download links are all from AMD's site.

Try downloading this and running it, reboot and then install this.

Note: The uninstall utility will get rid of ALL of your AMD drivers so that means that if you have an AMD chipset those drivers will be wiped as well.

That may fix things - hope it helps you!

I'm running 120hz and i have no issues, I know it's not of any help but i just thought i would say incase you thought it was an issue with all 120hz/144hz displays. thumb.gif hope they fix it for you.

Going through this thread only makes me more happy they delayed the 8K launch to polish their drivers. Seems like AMD are forgetting a very important rule in the GPU world, Fix Crossfire support for highly rated triple A games as quickly as possible (especially when you bundle it with your cards!) Farcry 3 is one of the biggest PC games from the end of last year and deserves alot of driver support!

I did use AMD's Uninstall uility several times, when I went from a beta to another but it's the same every time :| The worst of it is that sometimes, after it does not switch to Crossfire properly and the BSOD appears, I restart and then it says that I have no driver installed and my mouse hangs terribly even after several restarts. So I basically have to start all over again.
post #688 of 958
Everytime i have a problem uninstalling/resinstaling Catalyst drivers - i make sure i delete the Temp folder contents

C:\Windows\Temp
C:\Users\Temp (or whatever it is)

Any place there are temp files - give it a shot before/after uninstalling/reinstalling

I spent the last 10 months trouble shooting. I really don't have time for it any more. I'm just waiting for first opportunity to sell my GPU's at this point when I get a weekend free to drain my loop. Its not my job. I think I spent about 100 hours trouble shooting this year, until they pay me for my wasted time I'm not doing any more.
Sorry good luck

Every time I uninstall a beta driver I get this



Doesn't seem to have any ill effects though. I can just click 'close the program' and it will continue uninstalling as normal.
