I should also point out that I have the same issue if I do a fresh install of windows and install the driver instantly
as well as if I perform a clean install of windows and install EVERY single windows update.
I have performed memory tests on the ram and scanned the drive.
Everything works perfectly with other graphic cards - no issues at all.
I have tried disabling HDMI audio as well as making sure NO programs run on startup.
I removed all PCI cards and extra disks.
At the moment the only way I can use the machine with the drivers is to:
Boot in SAFE MODE -> uninstall the display device and delete the driver to force the STANDARD VGA driver to be installed.
I have then used driver sweeper and removed all graphic listings.
I can then boot into windows on the standard windows driver and have been re-installing the radeon drivers.
I then use the command prompt as administrator to atisetup.exe –uninstall and
atisetup.exe –install – output screen the drivers.
I reboot and it works correctly indefinately, even over restarts - it's all working.
When I reboot it blue screens and the cycle repeats.
I have not flashed my bios, the last update was 2009, my bios has not been updated since 2007.
I'm not sure if this is an issue with it actually working for an extended period?
I should also point out that making a system restore point at any time when then drivers are installed
results in the blue screen again as the windows logo appears and the OS is about to load up (as usual).
So it's a bit of a ritual to be able to use it at the moment for games and in the higher resolutions.
There were 3 issues which resulted in 3 different blue screens.
Firstly I updated the onboard nvidia nforce driver things with the most recent versions (which were vista) which compat installed.
Then there were two main issues.
The card seemed to be very difficult to seat correctly, I assumed this was due to it's huge size however it always seems to BSOD
when turned on after a shutdown, If i disconnect the power to the board/car then try again it works 0.o
The 3rd issue is it doesn't like detecting my dell UP2711 on boot via its Dual-Link DVI cable, it BSOD's every time.
Booting it up via DVI port 1 with a HDMI adaptor/HDMI lead into another monitor/tv works every time.
So my routine each day for turning my computer on is:
Power out of the back of the PSU, then replace.
Unplug my dual-link dvi to my main monitor.
Connect up monitor/tv with HDMI from DVI-1 via adaptor.
Computer happily boots into windows 7.
Connect Dual-Link in DVI-2 port. Dell U2711 Monitor is detected, computer auto switches to it as main display.
Then I can leave the 2nd hdmi monitor in as an extended desktip/2nd monitor or just unplug it.
