Hey guys. So I have a problem. I was doing some tweaking with the settings of my Radeon 6670 and I turned on the AMD OverDrive switch. As SOON as I turned it on, my whole PC just crashes and I get the Blue Screen of Death. That was the first time that has happened to me but I managed to fix it with a little research vie safe mode with networking. Well, while I was doing research and fixing this problem, at the same time I was able to uninstall and reinstall my graphics and install the latest driver for it. After I got everything under control, I noticed the control center looked different. It looked more up to date. Thinking I solved everything, for some reason the graphics card crashes later on again. I forgot what I did to it but it crashed. So I do everything all over again, uninstall and reinstall the graphics card, installed the latest driver and now the display or the control center is back to the way it was before I updated anything. I was wondering how I could possibly get back that updated display of the command center. I already tried cleaning the drivers and but I don't think I deleted the 13.4 update. I just reinstalled it. I know I did something wrong somewhere and keep in mind, I know little about this stuff, I'm learning a lot, and this has never happened to me before. Maybe someone can help me out with this? I'd deeply appreciate it.

The jest of it is, your probably going to want to do a clean install of Windows. There are sooooo many little files and registry issues that happen when installing new drivers and uninstalling them. Doing this and that, it just never leaves things in its original place. With that said, you could save a lot of time, and just being certain in general when you’re done, by just doing a clean install of Windows. If you need help finding the most up to date drivers and such you can give me a list of your parts and I’ll get all your drivers together in a download list for you. That will give you time to back up anything you need.

(regardless of what we decide to do back up your stuff now, before you even repost on this forum because it could actually be a piece of hardware failing who knows)

But that is my suggestion. And I’m 100% certain it will work and allow you to OC your video card when done as well.

I virtually never recommend this because it usually does more harm than good, but try system restore.

That's going to be a problem because I don't have a place to back up my files.

Have you tried using the AMD uninstall utility and then installing 13.8?

Go get a SkyDrive. Its 7GB of online storage for free. It doesnt cost you nothing but your time. This is plenty of space for you essential pictures and stuff.

If that isnt enough, for $70 you can get a 1TB drive like this one:
