Hello all! :) after i played a game a few minutes i get the following error: "Display driver atikmdag stopped responding and has recovered"
But when i disable crossfire everything works fine, atlast for more time than with crossfire on, without crossfire on i can actually complete a game. But with crossfire it keep chrashing after a few minutes.
Has anyone got a solution for this? i tryed both card one by one, slotby slow, works fine. Could it be my crossfire bridge? or any other software componemts?
so annjoying that i could :banghead:
Anyways, please help :laugh:
As you see in system spec my card is ATI RADEON HD 3870 Crossfire.

Okay thanks. I don't know the timing, just picked one of the bios with the same clocks :laugh:

Okay, this issue is still not solved i just got my secondary card replaced as it was blacked totally out, but this does not solve my problem. Still get the error.
