First, don't bump posts. Read the TOS again if you need to review the rules on bumping.

I'm not even sure what your issue is. Might want to start at the beginning.

ok sorry about the bumping didn't realise it was not allowed and the other day when starting a game i got bsod and the only way i could get the fing to run again was to disabill one core of the gpu now in gpu-z it show's one core as running way below speck on the gpu and way above on the memory it is also showing 4096mb memory on the bad one when it should be 1024mb thank's for you'r reply i have been trying to sort this for age's :D

"..... i have tryed clocking it back to below stock ..... " did u tried to O.C. it ???

Any ways unplug yor VGA, if u had on onboard VGA use it.... if not skip this step

--- enter windows with onboard VGA, let it run till it idles then turn off -----

plung your vga back in, run in safe/VGA mode uninstall the driver and aplication profile then reboot.....

enter the windows and reinstall the driver, and application profile....

If u lucky it will reset the card.. see if it helps..


edit: do u need to disable the core to get the game runs ? (trying/installing newest application profile did not help?)

can't u simply disable crossfire for that game? (not very familiar with 4870x2)

no have never O.C'd the card and i have had the driver's on and off load's of time's rolled it back and try'd several different driver's from amd ccc is there no way i can flash the bios from within window 7 64bit? i have also changed the tim about a month ago and up until about a few day's ago i was getting temp's in the mid 40c's which i thought was grate for a hd 4870x2 it was running about 75c-85c thank's for you'r input and it wont boot in to window's with both gpu's active thank's again :D

Hot/bad cards. I'm guessing its dead/dying.

I suggest start over. Delete the drivers, remove the card, clean it and try again. Try it in a different system if possible. Basically you want to make sure the card is ok.

Yea it is probably time for a new card, those 4870's are getting old.

But seeing as it works partially, try it in another computer and see what happens.

Nvidia or Ati.......oh no. Here comes the debate.

If you are looking at the 560, you will also want to look at the 6870 because it should be roughly the same price. Just get whatever one is cheaper, as they offer the same performance.

Honestly, neither of those cards is going to be as quick as your 4870x2. BUT both cards support DX11 and use much less power, and probably run much cooler.
August 21, 2012 7:08:41 PM

fell's wrong going back the way :fou:  what card do you think would match the 4870x2 in an affordable price range of around £200? ;)
