Have you tried disabling Crossfire in the ATI catalyst to test to see if COD will run still?

Might be a config for the game is set when you first install it, thinking you have a single card. You might just have to reinstall the game, or find the config file(s) and manually edit them.

Just a guess, though.

i just did a fresh format the other week cause i got a new SSD and the problem was happening before that, and i just re installed the game (on steam) before i posted this thinking is was that problem, and for using drive sweeper i dont think i need to use it since i just installed win7 ulti x64 but i will try it and see if that works

Best solution

I can solve that. You have to disable one of your cards in Catalyst. Trust me when I tell you that there is no "fix" for the BSOD on Black Ops. I have spent hours trying to figure it out and the only thing that fixes it is to disbale one of the cards. Which for me is fine, as one card runs the game just fine. Try it and see what happens.

Oh, one more thing, if you roll back your drivers to 11.6 it should work. I however did not want to do that as I play many games that need updated drivers such as BF3. SO either roll back to 11.6 or disable one of the cards.

gotta love HD Radeon drivers... :p 

Black Ops is the only game I have ever had a problem with and I have played many many games over the past few years. The game is coded poorly, it is a known fact. I would not be surprised if it is a problem on its end, ultimately.
