Windows 7: AMD Drivers causing freezes/crashes

23 Sep 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
AMD Drivers causing freezes/crashes

I recently reinstalled my OS and installed the AMD Drivers for my 5830s(crossfired) and they seem to be causing freezes. By freeze I mean that my computer will lock up completely and I cannot move my mouse and I have to then hard restart.

I have tried several solutions, such as reinstalling windows and reinstalling the graphics drivers after removing them in safe mode with driver sweeper. I have tried old versions and the latest versions do not install. I can boot into safe mode successfully and that is how I am asking this. I really need help because I cannot understand what is wrong.

My Computer specs:
AMD Phenom II X6 1050t OCed to 3.2ghz
8gb of Corsair XMS3 RAM
2 XFX Radeon HD 5830s Crossfired
850W Power Supply

I appreciate help and will provide anything necessary to stop this problem.

Have you tried booting with only 1 gpu instead of both being connected? Maybe one of the gpus are malfunctioning.

Agreed, or re-seating both of them can help too
