Hello there fellow AMD'ers!

 

A few weeks ago I bought a new videocard, installed the driver for it. It worked perfectly until a few days ago (probably 10/14 days ago). I need to install the drivers every single time I restart my PC. Otherwise I have 10-20 fps constant on BF3 on every setting while I can play, with the reinstalled driver, at 120 fps on ultra.

 

I have tried 13.3, 13.2 and the offical 13.1. None of them had solved the problem.

 

The videocard I was talking about was the Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 XT 2GB (dutch site)

It must be a borked OS install. The driver doesn't change if you turn off the computer.

An OS reinstall would a 100% solution, but you can also check event logs, running processes etc., maybe you'll find what interferes.
