Crossfire 7970's to EVGA SC GTX Titan - Page 2

post #11 of 13
I suggest using the ATI Cleanup Utility and proceed to a complete registry cleaning.


Believe me, this is the best method I have found I have done this before removing my quadfire and now I'm waiting for a new card


Ati CleanupUtility 1.2.1.0 will do the big part of the job but will not remove registry entries.

  1. Uninstall any CAP (Catalyst Application Profiles)
  2. Uninstall MSI afterburner and delete the installation folder
  3. Run ATI Cleanup Utility 1.2.1.0 (Beware AMD CPU and Windows 8 users)
  4. Reboot when the process is done
  5. Remove the Registry entries of your cards
  6. Uninstall AMD drivers in Device manager
  7. (without rebooting)Then I proceed to a full DriverCleaner.net cleaning
  8. Reboot ( EDIT :CLOSE COMPUTER FOR NVIDIA CARDS)
  9. Upon reboot, it will detect cards and ask for another reboot
  10. Reboot again
  11. Install new drivers


For a guide on how to remove the registry entries: AMD how to Thread (Located in Manual driver uninstall section)


How to clean registry entries from tsm106 guide

Open regedit and go to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E968-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

You can simply delete the whole folder 4D36E968-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318, It will fail but conveniently for us it will wipe the subfolders for us. You can also delete the CurrentControlSet2 folder ie. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet2\Control\Class\{4D36E968-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} in the same manner but it's not a big deal.

You don't have to mess with ControlSet1 as it is replicated with CurrentControlSet and vice versa. ControlSet2 will need to be manually cleaned however.

Now back to device manager.


Go to device manger and uninstall the standard vga device or AMD Radeon XXX if you see it. If you choose to clean the registry, you must not skip this step. But don't worry, deleting the devices is safe. If prompted to reboot, choose yes. If you are asked or given the choice to delete the driver, choose to do so.


Delete the whole folder in CurrentControlSet and ControlSet2 (You can also verify ControlSet1 , its a replica of currentcontrolset)

Spot the 4D36E968 folder

Unless you have a reason just use the uninstall feature included in the AMD drivers, remove all including settings, shut down the rig, install NV card, boot up, DL & install NV drivers. Done.

I usually use both AMD and NV at least a few times a week and I haven't had any problems aside from a few isolated instances. There's no reason for the hassle if you don't have problems.


I don't like seing useless entries in the registry. Thats just me though.

If you don't mind having unused registry entries with some old uninstalled hardware in device manager. Just use the ATI Cleanup Utility 1.2.1.0 and there is no need to do anything else.

I recently went from a 680 to a 7970 and only uninstalled the nvidia drivers without doing a full clean and ran into issues. It took over an hour of booting into safe mode to clean registries and such to get it up and running again. I'd definitely recommend doing the full, manual clean the first time to avoid possible issues.

BTW if you have Windows 8, be prepared for a hassle booting into safemode.

Yep, I'll be cleaning my registries using the guide posted earlier before installing the Titan. Thanks for the advice guys!
