I want to know by what miracle you (being whoever installed the drivers in my pc, and cyberpower staff in general) managed to get my cards to work together and not have the drivers crash!.

I wanted to update my drivers for my GPU setup. After many tries, much research, many many bluescreens, driver sweepers, attempt after attempt. I could get absolutely no drivers to work with the crossfire setup. I could get a single GPU to work, but not both without horrendous crash, and the system dumping the driver. I have no idea why this is, or how cyberpower techies managed to get my computer to work. Found references on the interwebs of other people who had identical problems, but trying the fixes that worked for them failed for me.

Reinstalling the drivers from the installation disc failed for me.

I had to do a system restore! To set things right again.

Right now, I feel as if I can never update my driver ever ever because it won't work. This doesn't make me very happy at all.

Does anyone have any insight into what's going on or why these issues occur? If more info is needed, I'll provide whatever is necessary to come up with a solution to this problem (AMD is absolutely no use and haven't gotten back to me yet)

Wow, the response has been overwhelming to say the least.

It seems that the CyberPowerPC fanboy club has a lot more experience with just telling everyone to upgrade their PSU and get the i5 instead!

</sarcasm>

I have updated my BIOS after consulting with both AMD and the manufacturer of my GA-970A-UD3 motherboard, Gigabyte.

It seems to have fixed some of the problems. I can update drivers, and get them to work consistently in all BUT crossfire setup. They work singly, they work doubly but with no bridge, they work with the bridge but with crossfirex disabled.

Enabling it gets an immediate blue screen.

At the end of the day, I still needed System Restore to get things working again.

At least the BIOS update was fine.

Lessons you may learn from reading this thread:

If you want crossfire, don't get a gigabyte motherboard.
