I've been playing battlefield for quite some time now and its worked perfect. I crossfired tw ati 5670's last night(I was playing with just one before) and played all night. worked great. Got on today, and my PC freezes, I get a black screen, and I have to hard boot. It's really pissing me off. Any help would be awesome. Thanks!

Im using windows 7 64 bit

Specs for the rest of your hardware? Could be a power problem, especially if you're using some sort of pre-built Dell computer. List what PSU, motherboard, RAM, etc. you have to figure out what the problem might be.

Okay, let's check out temps too. Are you able to stay in a game for at least 5 minutes or so to test temperatures? Use CPUID HWMonitor to test check your temperatures while it is idle and while it is full load. The cards should not exceed over 85C and the CPU should stay well under 65-70C.:

Program is only showing the one card. Im guessing thats just the program. Games die quickly but I'll try. Idle on desktop its showing 45C

Device manger says both cards have same driver version. Just crashed while in CCC. I was looking at the setting and it displays a small box for an example of what it looks like. Crash =(

Remove one card and test the system. Does it work properly?

Hey on did account on my phone lol. It crashed just same. Didn't disable crossfire however. CCC doesn't show crossfire option so im assuming its automatically off. But I did crash with just one card. Wtf? I did windows updates last night also?

It can affect it if it became faulty, but it's more than enough power. Are you able to uninstall the drivers without worrying about crashing? Try reinstalling earlier Catalyst versions to see if they are more stable.

Good idea. I did also download the new CCC driver last night and it might not of taken affect until after the restart last night

Okay, just trace retrace or reinstall everything since you started using Crossfire. See if it crashes again.

CCC 10.9 was released earlier this week. I didnt get it until last night becuase i started steam, which has a new video cards updater. And i did not restart. Cool. Where to find 10.8?........

The Windows 7 link redirects to Vista. I'm guessing it's compatible for both.

EDIT: Ahh, good to hear. Glad it works now =)
