Since upgrading to 7850 got BSOD quite often
I have finally decided to ditch my 5770 CFX rig, too much heat in the summer also one of the cards was starting to make a lot of noise.
So, now after upgrading cards, uninstalling drivers and reinstalling 12.4 I get BSOD once per day... and usually when I am not at the pc! Apparently its happening in one of the graphic drivers. If I set my pc to turn off display after 20 minutes I don't even get to see the BSOD cause its all dead.
Any ideas here? Never got much BSOD before, I am quite disappointed here.
Did you do a clean reboot of windows?
If not what card did you have before, and did you clean the old drivers completely?
Every time i install some new catalyst drivers i do the following, i run 2 programs after the reboot.
1: driver sweeper
2: driver cleaner pro
then i reboot and install the new drivers again.
also what psu do you have, just to make sure it deliveres the sufficient power.
I will try the driver sweeper, installing 12.6 and report.
On the side note, there ought to be 12.7 beta, how to get it?
you just pick desktop graphic - radeon hd serie - radeon hd 7xxx series pcie - you operating system "Os" then there comes a page where you chose cataslyst 12.7 beta that are the second thing to download on the page, the 12.6 are whql drivers tested by microsoft.
hope that helps.
Interesting, I couldn't find the link in blog, but I didnt expect it there. Hence I didnt even check.
Btw, drivercleaner step I do know, but is that even relevant when upgrading from amd to amd? It seems weird. Also BSOD's are totally strange since I have never in my life had such frequent BSOD's. Except if its another hardware and masks as amd driver.

Seems kinda shady to me, no references no nothing. Just some big buttons.
edit2: Also dunno if I mentioned, I only get bsod while afk!
Is there any way to turn off amd phenom clock control? In later versions of CCC it is there, but I have some utilities that can do that much better.
edit3: After a good 1 day of upgraded drivers to 12.7 everything is fine. Not one bsod for now.
edit4: Definetely the drivers. 12.4. Don't use em on 7xxx series. Is all fine now after upgrade to 12.7, no need to use sweeper even.
