Graphics Card

- ATI Radeon HD5870

- I've been running mostly at 405mhz and tested it up to 800mhz. 

AMD Catalyst Driver Version, and Driver History

- 12.104.0.0 - though another tool reports it as Catalyst 13.4

Operating System

- Win 7 Professional, x64

Issue Details

- My machine is an MSI GX660R laptop.

I accidentally dragged the memory clock slider to somewhere above 1000Mhz, it froze my pc to a black screen, and now happens every time I run CCC.

I've gone through and uninstalled (even removed various reg keys) all ATI/AMD tools, but when I re-install and run CCC, it freezes my pc again.

Now I have CCC removed, and my pc runs fine, and I can view and edit the core clock speed using MSI Afterburner.

So this isn't a huge issue, but I use the CCC for other adjustements as I have dual monitors and often move my laptop. 

Motherboard or System Make & Model

- MSI MS-16F1 (I think, not 100% sure)

Power Supply

- It's whatever the MSI-660R's standard is, I don't know.

Display Device(s) and Connection(s) Used

- built in 17" 1920x1080 screen

- One additional HDMI connected 1920x1080 screen

Applications and Games

- Happens outside of games

CPU Details

- Intel Core i5 M480 2.67Ghz

- No overclocking done

Motherboard BIOS Version

- I'll fill it in later, it's my only computer, and i can't restart

System Memory Type & Amount

- 2x4Gb DDR3 RAM

Additional Hardware

- Two separate phyiscal standard 2.5" drives at 500Gb each

Additional Details

- The crash only happens when I run CCC now. Modifying my core gpu speed with another program is fine, and I can work on my pc as normal. As mentioned, uninstalling/reinstalling the catalyst software does NOT help.

My PC is clean of viruses, and regularly updated.
