Win8? Will likely skip...have a hard enough time keeping friend's slimy digits off my screen as is.
Anywho, Yeah latest vbios from Chastity way back when. .93vbios with and w/o
overdrive (kept handy, because repair @ asus they downgrade the damn thing every time..even dinged a tech for it on a survey).
Unless there is another I should be aware of?
( derailed my own thread...is that a record?)
If you have the latest Vbios go back and try what I said again you need to get it back to scratch so that a standard VGA adaptor installs at boot if it still says 5800 adaptor it has not worked you need to crap clean in safe mode. Go to the official website and download the latest driver full package and install from scratch. If 12.4 is not working try 12.3 and upgrade it to 12.4.
I am skipping it sadly. Its looks great and shows a lot of promise and improvement but they turned it into an Ipad and took away my start button.
Crogge: No way to tell if the vBIOS has been updated unless you KNOW you've done it (maybe Radeon Bios Editor could tell you, I think...should be version 93).
Your computer BIOS is current, IIRC. NOT the same.
If you *DO NOT* recall making a bootable thumbdrive (flashdrive) and putting 5 files on it
(fixati.bat, fixOD.bat atiflash.exe and two .rom files) you are still on stock vBIOS which cause
the problems you describe.
Had issues like yours 1st week of ownership...after vBIOS flash, worked grand, after vBIOS update with OverDrive, worked great and could overclock the videocard. 700Mhz core = default, most games stable at 750Mhz and can do gpu folding@home at 790Mhz.
Had the fans replaced and the darn thing came back at stock vBIOS (GRRRR).
Reflashed on the spot.
Now that I think about it, I may have to flash to default, install the drivers and reflash to OverDrive. I have a vague recollection that some ATI driver do not behave/install if OD is
active (OD ability in CCC is still there, installer just does not like seeing it active...weird, but deja vu is strong).
