7970 Low FPS Driver Problems - Page 3

After that I reinstalled AMD Overdrive and a dialog box showed up saying that Windows blocked the installation because it wasn't a digitally signed driver?

Oh oops nevermind, AMD Overdrive doesn't have Windows 8 listed under system requirments, so maybe it only works for Windows 7?

which driver you using now? beta or 13.4? have you done something before it happens... try system restore... i suggest you stick to 1 driver only 13.4 for now.. stay away from beta as betas has lots of bugs....

and never ever use amd uninstall utlity on your win 8... it messes up windows 8... trust me its not good... have used it until i notice something is wrong... i ended up reinstalling everything...

alright thanks for the tips. And I am already using the beta drivers and they are working fine so far, I don't want to try and install the latest ones and then start having problems and go through the whole process again. I wish I could overclock my CPU because that could be the main problem but AMD Overdrive won't work on Windows 8 as it appears.

I could do Bios but I would prefer doing it with software so I can change it quickly and not worry about overheating the CPU.There isn't any other software I have found that will work to do it.

I don't have anymore Windows 7 copies and besides Windows 8 is the newest so I'm sticking with it. I am kinda liking it with two monitors because the new start screen pops up on my right monitor rather than my main, it's interesting. I will wait for a CPU OC to come out for Windows 8 and use that, if you know of one (that's good) please let me know.
