Perhaps a daft suggestion but have you tried taking both cards out reseatingthem or even leaving them out and trying the on board graphics?



Probably as daft where did you download the drivers from through Windows orfrom the Ati site?

AMD Catalyst


It would be interesting to see if the machine blues with those cardscompletely right out.

To make things a little easier rather than muck around with zipped files etc try this JD

To better help us to help you would you please add your systems specs? Here's the correct way to do it. :SystemInfo See Your System Specs Under System Manufacturer/Model Number add whether it is a desktop or laptop and whether self built. Very important

Log in to Seven Forums and you will be able to transfer the info directly to the specs page in your profile from within the System Info app.

Your System Specs here.

After doing this your specs will be available in each of your posts.
Click on My system Specs in the lower left of this post to see how it should look.
Full instructions are in the tutorial.


This is the preferred, best way to upload an image to a post.
Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums
You may also upload a photo or image as you would a file, without using the Snipping tool.
A zip isn't a screenshot.

After updating your system specs, as Britton30 suggested, be sure to include the make and model of your PSU.

If you are having trouble with Crossfire, disable it and remove 1 card and run the gmes again and see what your results are. You may have to lower your settings some. Whether that card passes or fails, remove it and put the other card in and play the games again to see what happens. It is possible that one of your cards are bad.

Also, download GPUz. Post a screenshot of the main tab and the sensor tab. Do the same with each card when you install them one at a time. If you do get crashes, Create a folder on your desktop and name it whatever you want. open GPUz and click on the sensor tab, at the bottom is a checkbox called 'log to file', check the box. As soon as you check it a dialogue box will appear. Browse to the folder on your desktop you just created and select it. Then play the games again until they crash. It will record all info about your cards. Zip the folder up and attach it once you have finished.

But, it is important to do as Britton30 suggested and give us your system specs. It will help us to help you.

Plus, if you are overclocking anything, please set it back to default values. And also, please go to BIOS and give us the readings for your +12V, +5V and +3.3V.

I was in the middle of a long message when the machine blue screened again. I can reproduce various blue screen codes with prime 95. super pi seems to be fine memtest ran for 2 days fine.

Do as Essenbe advised and disable Crossfire and try each card one at a time.
