I am getting a BSOD whenever I start a game after enabling crossfire through CCC. I have been trying to resolve this problem myself for awhile now but a lot of the other troubleshooting guides I find too complex or not useful.

I do know that both cards work fine, they are Radeon HD 6800s and they are compatible. I only get a BSOD when I try to start a game, I have tested it with Battlefield 4 and Rome 2 both crash the computer.

Please let me know what I can do to fix this so I can use crossfire. Thank you.

Got my first BSOD in years with 14.1 with CF on COD Ghosts...fine on everything else.  Apparently, AMD, Activision and InfinityWard...never talked!

What is the BSOD error code? Also are you running a 144hz monitor by chance?
