http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=108857

This is the only thread which I can currently find which has the same problems as me. I really am stuggling to fix this.

I am going to copy an' paste what ive been posting to all forums I can find about video cards.

I currently run two ATI 5850's in crossfire and I notice i am getting some real bad flickering. It is espically obvious when steam interface is brought up ingame. This flickering only happens in modern warfare 2. I have up to date drivers ( 10.4 ) and my video cards are not broken...I think not.

I understand this may be the wrong section of the forums so if it is can someone point me in the right direction, or give me a link to where i can submit issues to IW so they can fix in a new patch


tl;dr

1)get flickering in game

2)Need link to bug/problem thread

Would be awesome if someone could help, rather upsetting having spent alot of cash on a 2nd card and it not to work in a game i enjoy very much.


( this is pasted among several threads )


-----

Now I dont know if this is useful but Ive got

i7 920 @ 3.6 ghz
ASUS p6t v2 mobo


I am not your much tech wise guy you can find, but i think this issue with my flickering on codmw2 is games fault and not mine. I really hope it is as that 260 pounds I have spent is useless now.

Help would be great, thanks.

Try running MW 2 non crossfire, one 5850 is more than enough to power that game.

I know that. But I didnt get two video cards just for MW2. Never the less I still would like to use my 2nd video card when it comes to MW2, so do you have any ideas on my issues or are you going to continue pointing out the rather obivous?

Didn't suggest a fix, I suggested a workaround. Have you tried all the other obvious step like Vsync and things like that yet? Do tell us what you have done, I think its easier than getting us to suggest things you already done.

Good idea. Im not your most tech wise guy but this is what ive done.

Disabled AI in CC which fixes it because it disables crossfire, so thats pointless.
Vsync does not help.
updated video cards to 10.4
Tried messing around with ingame settings for codmw2 to 59hz- 65hz etc.
Switching the video cards themselves.

I can't think of any other things I have done, but I have done the usual ( I know that doesnt help saying that )

Please do throw Ideas at me :)

Yeah il give it another go tomorrow, thanks for concern.

However could it just be codmw2 that has the problem with CF 5850's ?

I dont get this issue anywhere else. Tho I do get texture flickering in dirt 2 and ocasinally in BFBC2.

Well MW2 uses the same engine that MW, WaW, CoD2 used and I used to run crossfire with all of those with no issue. Out of curiosity is your DX up to date?

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...FamilyID=2da43d38-db71-4c1b-bc6a-9b6652cd92a3

I downloaded that and installed it, I assume imy dx is up to date. I dont know whether thats a program you, or if it automatically update your dx when it installs.

Is there a way i can find out so i can report back to you?

If it says it up to date then you should be ok. Oh and I think you have a software issue. I doubt its your cards but out of curiosity are you using one crossfire cable or two?

Did you try updating your Crossfire profile? I know this doesn't mention MW2, however maybe it will help...give it try, you never know

Latest CrossfireX Profile --It says 10.3, that's okay. Just download and install. That's it, let me know what you are getting after that

Edit: How much watts is PSU?

850w PSU.

I have downloaded that link and installed. I assume it installs then it does all the updating and doesnt require you to run a program to update it.

It does not work. Codmw2 is flickering.

Brand? Have you reinstalled your drivers yet? Also, have you tested your cards for stablilty through Furmark and things like that? Test each card for stability. I wouldn't rule out a malfunctioning card.

Dang, is it just MW2 that is doing it? Or is it more than one game? It may be a bad graphics card, that is the worst case scenario :shadedshu
