So, I`ve been having some problems with my xfire. Might aswell take it from the start in short form.

Bought new pc, built it, everything runs fine.

Bought second graphics card, installed separately (lots o`lots o`driver problems) Freeze at desktop just after windows login. Sometimes black screen just as I`m typing my windows password, manual reboot.


Suddenly everything runs fine for about 2 weeks, and then one day "no AMD graphics drivers are installed, please install compatible software for your hardware"

Then I reboot my PC, AMD drivers are back and functional again.

Runs fine for about 2 and a half weeks, ultra settings and my life is a dream in every game.

And then I turned my PC off and went to sleep, came back from work and fired up my PC. "no AMD graphics drivers are installed, please install compatible software for your hardware".

Reboot - same notification. Uninstall drivers, install (done correctly and using lots of guides on the interwebz to try different installation methods)

Now as my drivers are installed my problem begins. As I boot my pc up, type my password. Starts loading spotify, steam, origin etc... It freezes up just as it`s done loading about 3-4 seconds after login.

Been trying to run on single graphics card, works perfectly, on both cards running single.


So, anyone knows anything about this problem? I`ll be thrilled for answers and suggestions.

EDIT: I just checked this link, so it seems that my mobo may not be compatible? (AMD 970 / AMD SB950) Weird how my system ran fine with xfire for about 2 weeks and then after some problems ran fine for 2 and a half week though.. Can anyone confirm this?
