These cards are driving me nuts. After a lot of fudding around I get the system to boot fine and have both cards working. Then something causes a crash and the thing is retarded. It only intitializes one card, the 6950 in slot 2 regarldess of the fact that the it goes all the way through to the starting windows screen on the 5830.
Yesterday it was booting fine with the 5830 initializing after the starting windows screen. I am using this PC as an HTPC so I want to keep one GPU mining while watching movies and the other one mines too when I am not. Obviously I'd prefer to have the 6950 as the 24/7 miner.
My temps are marginal when mining at ~ 80 on both cards so that may lead to a crash. I am not OC'ing them too much. I am about to give up and try 2 6950s in one machine and the 5830 by itself on this computer.
AMD's drivers have been doing all sorts of weird things on this machine with the graphics cards, most notably losing sound through the HDMI when sitting idle for a while. Uninstalling didn't seem to help either.
I know it's a shot in the dark, but has anyone experience similar annoyances with mutli GPU family setups?
