AMD Crossfire problem: Color profiles

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
The colors flicker between different hues, going up and down (like screen tearing I guess). I just got my second 7950 and enabled crossfire. It only happens in games by the way, and only with crossfire enabled.

BF3 makes my PC shutdown. And there's microstutter in Starcraft 2. I'm using 13.8 by the way. *** is going on... I tried the output of both cards with crossfire disabled and they seem to be okay.

My ability to connect to BF3 has suddenly gotten very spotty since installing the second card. Just what in the world is going on? I know multi-card setups are supposed to be problem prone but this is ridiculous

I've discovered the problem; it's color profiles.

I use powerstrip to enforce a color profile for my two monitors. I think the problem is that the color profile is only being enforced on one video card, while the other is trying to reset the color profile when I start up BF3. I also tried a little program called color profile keeper to enforce color profiles, same problems.

The only way to avoid any problems is to allow BF3 to reset the color profiles, but that's really not acceptable.
