Running an A10-7850K on an ASUS A85XM-PLUS and when I run AMD Overdrive 4.3.1 the screen turns black and the next thing I see is the POST screen.  I've never used it or overclocked - my system is all stock right now.  Any advice would be appreciated!

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling which was a bit of a nightmare too - initially I got the "Windows Installer: Error Applying Transforms..." error but I eventually solved that and was able to uninstall and reinstall it.

I just recently upgraded from an A10-5800K and I also noticed that AMD System Monitor only shows CPU usage - for the GPU everything shows 0 (usage, memory usage, etc.) where a program like TechPowerUp! GPU-Z shows the correct values.

Since you did a GPU update, you might need to check to make sure there was not a BIOS update for the CPU codes.

6502 might have them, but it looks like your needing the next release.
