(Not sure whether to post this here or in the driver forum, but it a serious issue, so here it is.)
Hello, I have just built my new computer with these specs:
Sapphire Radeon HD7970 Vapor-X, no OC
Windows 7 64-bit
Akasa Venompower 850W 80 Plus Gold
2 x iiyama ProLite E2273HDS-1
Intel Core i7-3770K
BIOS version 1502
Patriot Memory Viper Black Mamba DDR3 4x4GB 1600MHz
I did not have the graphic cards or monitors at first, so I just used my TV and the onboard graphics whilst I updated and installed everything again. I just installed the graphics card and monitors, but when I install the drivers for it and reboot, either:
(A) the desktop background comes up, but no UI as the screen seems to have shrunken inwards. I'm not usre whether it's just that I need to adjust the screen somehow afterwards, but it seems rather strange.
(B) it hangs on the Windows logo welcome screen, where the background is black with the glowing logo.
I am using a Crucial m4 256GB SSD as my bootdrive and so it is where I install my drivers, but I'm not sure whether that would be the cause. Maybe I should install it on my HDD (Seagate 3TB)?
EDIT: I have tried 12.8, 12.10 and 12.11, but none work .
If (A) happens and I press Ctrl + Alt + Delete the screen goes black, and then if I hit Esc it goes back to the 'desktop' with no UI still.
