I have installed 2 hd4870 512mb graphics cards in my new k9a2 platinum board, i initialy got them working in crossfire but after messing with the ati overdrive facility i cant get them to work, they work fine individualy in the pcie16 slot 1 but together the first card is working ok but the second one reports a problem in hardware manager, i have uninstalled and reinstalled to no avail, ccc says the driver is not compatable with the gpu and disabled it and the crossfire option has gone. i have used the latest 9.2 driver suite from ati. there is power etc to the card fan ok but gpu z reports strange specs. Please help me solve this issue as i have spent a lot of money on something i cant use. Thanks.
Try uninstalling the CCC suite as well as the driver. Are you doing Internal or External Crossfire? Honestly, I have never used crossfire, so I'm not completely sure. You may have to take both cards out, and reinstall them both back into the PCI-E slots. Then reinstall the CCC suite and driver. G Luck.
driver not compatible with the gpu...I have heard that before but don't know what the proper fix is. Have you tried an older driver version after cleaning them out?
Can't find your answer ? Ask !

I have tried everything you can think of i read that the current 9.2 drivers have issues with the microsoft net framework 3.5 that is required. Also i found out that the bios that my new board has is v1.2 looking on the msi site i think the most recent bios is 1.6 so that wont help matters, anyway i have had enough its going into be sorted on the 14th so hopfully the experts can sort it out.
