7950 crossfire bottom card stuck at 300/150 - Page 6

I'm looking at the BIOS update page. I believe I currently have v2.5 I'm looking at all the newer ones and I don't see anything about it fixing any pci-e problems or anything mentioning crossfire. Should I still do it?

Update your mobo bios and reflash your cards with their stock bios

Ok I have a doctors appointment so I'll do it when I get back. Also, my MOBO website tells me to use DOS to update the BIOS. Does that mean I can stick the files on the same USB im using to flash my cards and do it through that? Or do I have to reformat my USB stick to a different type of DOS than the one I'm using for flashing my cards.

also I was using atiman uninstaller to clean the drivers after the uninstall before I did a clean install of windows do u guys think that it might of deleted some filles that can't be replaced by a fresh install of windows? That is the program I was using at the time of everything getting messed up. It took about 5 minutes to get rid og everything while driver sweeper only takes a couple seconds. I wasn't uusing atimanin safe mode but I am now using driver sweeper in safe mode.

I just feel like this problem was created by uninstalling the drivers and then cleaning them with atiman since when I first installed the cards everything worked fine, but when I started flashing and then uninstalling the drivers and cleaning with atiman everything got messed up. Now I'm back to the original BIOS's and I'm having this problem. I don't know how that would be possible considering I did a fresh install of windows though. Why do I have a feeling that updating the MOBO bios isn't going to help.... ill still try it, but I feel like I'm screwed either way.

Try earlier drivers. Yes I know you want a performance boost, but just for troubleshooting. It should be tried first before things like MB bios upgrade.

Also, are you by any chance using Windows 8? I've been reading about some problems between ATI drivers and Win8, but can't remember hearing about this specific issue.

EDIT: Just google something like "7970 or 7950 cf problem windows 8".

I actually tried 13.1 right before I left, but it didn't help. Same problem.

And no I am not using windows 8.

Aghhh I wish I could just say, "YES! I did do that! Let me change that back around!"

And then I wish I could say, "It worked!!!!"

Buttttttt......no.

(Insert an extremely sad face here)

It might have caused some of your problems but a fresh Windows install and fresh drivers should have fixed that. Just update your BIOS for your motherboard and re-flash your cards back to their stock BIOSs and see if that helps anything before you start RMAing parts and spending more cash. I would also check to make sure you registered your parts for their warranties, just to be on the safe side of things.

Yea they are back to their stock BIOS's I will try to flash my MOBO in an hour or so. Can I use the same DOS flash drive as I used for flashing the graphics cards?

I can't believe that a simple flash is going to cause me to RMA my card. Any chance this could be my new PSU. Starting to fail? It seems fine, but it could be that. I noticced when I had the single card in before I re installed windows that when I increased the power control to 20 thegraphics would stutter, but that could have just been the drivers xonflict. Does my problem sound like it could be a psu problem?
