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!
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.

Built the PC myself about 3 months ago.
Intel i7 930
ASUS P6T SE mobo
Also just put in an Antec 850w Quattro power supply
6gb Kingston Ram
WD 500gb HD
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.:
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?........

There was also a crossfire application released the same day. Steam and its new program might not of cuaght that..... I'll try that 1st with 10.9 and if not then go to 10.8 again. Thanks! hopefully this will work!
