I run my two 5970's @ 890mhz on my win7 64 box. Which is fine an dandy, good temps and fairly stable hash rate but sometimes I need to reboot for some reason, or it reboots after a power failure. Now theres no monitor, or keyboard/mouse for that matter on this box. Just a VGA dummy plug. It runs a remote desktop, so I check in on it from my android phone or another computer.

When the PC reboots I want it to just start mining but when it reboots the clocks go back to 890 , the miners start and it just locks up. Meaning unless the system recovers I may have to go into my basement and manually power down and reset the whole thing.

But when the system clocks are set to stock, everything fires up just fine. Is there anyway I can get my pc to reset its clocks on reboot BEFORE my miners open? Then is there anyway to get it to progresivly re-clock itself back up to speed? I know MSI afterburner can use hot keys, maybe I could broadcast hot keys somehow automatically timed apart from each other? I dont know how to do delayed starts on things either so any help would be great!

Thanks!

Edit the cards BIOS to run at whatever clock speed you want. I'll try to find a link for you.

This page has 2 programs you will need.

http://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/

GPU-Z allows you to make a back-up of your BIOS.

Radeon BIOS Editor will allow you to make the changes.

Flash the edited BIOS back to the card. Here are instructions for a 5870, I'm sure you can make it work for a 5970.
