My system specs are an AMD 965 BE 3.9ghz-2250 NB/2250HT 1.35v cpu voltage, Gigabyte 890FX-UD5 2.0 bios, 8gb DDR3 GSkill ripsaws 1600 at 1333, Corsair 850 psu-H80 cooler, 125gb SSD AHCI w/trim, Windows 7 64bit home premium, Crossfire HD 7950 only days old with boost bios.

I am having a problem ever since installing catalyst 12.11 or any of the 12 series catalyst. My system no longer shuts down in 10-15 seconds but instead hangs for 47 seconds then shuts down. I have tried a clean system install and using other drivers in the 12 series range. Nothing has helped. The only resolution was going back to my HD 5870 with catalyst 10.8 but that isn't going to work with my HD 7950's. Any ideas what I can do to fix this issue?

There are a few other post on the internet about this but with no resolution that works for me. AMD customers with AMD platforms shouldn't have to deal with a driver determining system shutdown times. The 12.11 beta driver performance is at least awesome though. Any ideas?

Bump.

Tried Msconfig diag boot and still had the issue. Disabling drivers in windows 7 causes system to revert to generic display driver which fixes the issue which points back to the catalyst 12.11 beta.

I appear to have solved this problem, at least for me. It turns out that the AMD High Definition Audio Device driver that was installed by or with catalyst 12.11 beta was part of the problem. Windows 7 also installs this driver as default with my 7000 series cards. The other part was the missing Realtek HDMI audio driver that needs to be installed on top of the default AMD driver. I solved my problem while connecting to my HDTV to play a game in 3D since it's my only 3D capable display. I was once again plagued with an HDMI audio and flickering TV screen issues as has been the case since upgrading to dual HD 7950's and was determined to solve it. By solving it I also solved my shutdown lag issue.

I noticed in the device manager that the driver was listed twice, I'm guessing once for each card, so I disabled the driver for the second card. This fixed my sound issue but not my flickering screen issue. Then I noticed that on a reboot my computer began to shutdown fast again. The problem soon came back so I tinkered with the sound drivers again just to see why the lag went away. I realized that there was an update to my realtek HDMI sound after researching the sound and flickering issues online. I donwloaded the driver (Realtek HDMI 2.70), installed it on top of the AMD driver. I then had to go into device manager and right click on the enabled AMD driver and selected update driver to finish the pairing of the AMD and Realtek drivers. Problem solved and now my pc shuts down fast again with the added benefit of full HDMI sound output. If you want to run HDMI sound on a crossfire setup you may have to disable one of these (AMD/Realtek) drivers listed in the sound tree if you are having sound issues. Trying to use the Realtek driver alone only results in HDMI not plugged in but thankfully it works with the AMD driver without causing shutdown service lag. Never had this shutdown lag problem with 10 or 11 series drivers so I hope this helps others out there. Sorry for blaming AMD for this issue alone as it probably was my fault for not updating my Realtek driver.
