And changing EnableULPS in regedit doesnt seem to work but it finds the 2nd card now
Nvm xD Aparently you're not allowed to "shut down" you have to restart, rebooted and now it works
Look like I'm not alone. With 14.1 beta drivers, whenever it crashed or blue screen, my 2nd GPU also tend to disappear. Even after restart the computer a couple of time, the 2nd GPU remain MIA. It eventually comeback if I shutdown the computer & disconnect the PCIe power cables to the card for a couple of minutes. I also figured out that whenever it BSOD it will auto-restart (or it freezed & I pushed the restart button), the 2nd GPU will disappear. If it freezed or BSOD & I quickly push the power button to shutdown, the 2nd GPU doesn't disappear. So, I disabled the auto-restart & this proved to be working well for me.
Last night I got BSOD (same bug check code with 14.1 beta driver, 0xa0000001 which show it caused by ATI driver) with 13.12 WHQL driver & I did shutdown the computer by pressing the case on/off button. When I turned on my computer later, the 2nd GPU disappeared again. This time I did differently. I uninstall the driver in Control Panel & when restart the 2nd GPU still missing in Device Manager but while windows is installing the generic driver, I hear new hardware found/connected sound & I can see the 2nd GPU re-appeared in Device Manager. For good measure I uninstall the remaining driver using DDU in safe mode & re-install fresh 13.12 WHQL driver later.
I never had BSOD 0xa0000001 or any BSOD before except when using 14.1 beta driver but that only happen when I overclocked & 14.1 is buggy driver anyway. This is first BSOD with WHQL driver. I hope it just driver issue. Prior BSOD, I did re-install 13.12 driver on top of existing 13.12 driver because the driver version doesn't show up in CCC.

I doubt though. Price in Malaysia still normal, still MSRP.Edited by kizwan - 2/12/14 at 11:48pm
