Alright guys, I'm desperate at this point. Hopefully someone can provide some fresh answers. Here is my current setup: 

motherboard: intel dp67bg -updated to latest Bios (2209) 
cpu: 3rd Gen i7 
memory: 16 gb corsair vengeance 
psu: OCZ 1000W 
HDD: SSD 250gb Samsung 
OS: Windows 7 
GPU: 2x MSI Twin Frozr HD 7850 (atiumdag Catalyst 13.1 driver) 

My intention is to crossfire the cards. But I keep getting a code 12 on the second card within device manager (This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12) 

If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system.), I have tried every piece of advice I've found and NOTHING has worked, I'm at the end of my witts with this thing. Here's a list of what i've done: 

- Disabled unused resourced in the BIOS 
- swapped PCIe slots to make sure they are working 
- tried cards individually in another computer (both work fine [no xfire since i don't have two slots in my old machine]) 
- deleted all instances of the card with the error and reinstalled 
- deleted all drivers and reinstalled 
- clean installation 
- Microsoft's POS fix it downloads 

Additional details: 
I downloaded GPU-z And I can see the card in there it's just not turned on ( since device manager has deactivated the card). 

Any advice or help would be GREATLY appreciated. I've been trying to fix this for two weeks.
