Hello I recently bought a 7950 DC2 V2 and i cannot boot into windows with it. The wierd part is that I can driversweep CCC then then card will allow me to boot, but as soon as i install the latest drivers from amd it does not boot. I have tried the latest stable release as well as the newest beta release. I would appreciate it if anyone could help me. Thanks!

What exactly happening when you are trying to boot up your PC?

P.S. booting isn't related to driver.

What happens is after I install CCC and I reboot the windows logo will fireeze . I also have used startup repair but that just removes the drivers.

Ok, seems like driver issue.

Which version of catalyst are you using?

I am using the latest stable version, 13.1. I also used two different beta versions, and those did not work. the weird part is that this only happens after I install CCC.  Before I install the drivers the card works and will allow me to boot.  also I got it to boot once but it crashed with a fuzzy screen and have not been able to boot since.

Sounds like a dead card. Try reseating it and its power cables though.

I have repeated it many times and the leds on the pbc over the power connections are green so I know that's not the problem.  but the card works fine when drivers are not installed, I also don't wanna rma it so that's a last dich effort. also while using igpu as primary I can adjust core clock, also the first time it crashed I was ocing it, if that helps.

Well you've narrowed it down to a card issue at this point. Try another machine perhaps?

^^ Card stabilized after overclocking? :doh:

Put it back to stock settings and see whether the same booting problem happens or not.

No it booted properly after updating his mobo driver/BIOS.
