HD7970 CF Scrolling Artifact

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I've gotten this annoying graphical problem again where the image scrolls over itself while crossfire is enabled.
Last time I had this I had one of the cards returned for warranty.
Is there any way to determine which card could be the cause or if it's not the GPU's what other component could be the cause?
I've added this old video I made back when I first had the problem to show it to XFX support.
No need to make a new video since it's the exact same problem I'm having.

Thanks

Speed

Anything you have already tried ? Like plugging into a different monitor or TV ?? What drivers are you running ??

Try re-seating your crossfire bridge, even better replace it if you have a spare one laying around. Just a guess but that's were I would start. Let us know how it goes.

Things I tried:
  • I've tried a different monitor, now and last time this did not change anything.
  • Changing the crossfire bridge did not help, neither did it last time I had this problem.
  • Last time when I had this issue switching the GPU's around on the motherboard solved the problem but this time it doesn't.

Driver info and observations
  • Current driver 14.3 Beta installed 2 days ago
  • Updated because I saw graphical artifacts similar like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ce0sS_uvO7c but in Next Car Game
  • The artifacts disappeared after installation
  • Yesterday the first game I played after getting home showed the scrolling, any other game I tried after that showed it too

It's weird that it shows up after having installed it a day ago. I do remember that it was also the first time my PC would not show any image again when moving the mouse and tapping the keyboard after the computer had turned off the monitor when running Idle for a while. All the fans kept running but I could not get it to show any image again. I then had to force shutdown the pc since I had to leave.

Weird stuffs
