Here goes nothing... my card survived! Now I'm off to see if PowerDVD Bluray playback really works now.

 

Sigh... I remember the good ol' days when you could skip all that crap and just get to the main menu. I hate PowerDVD, but at least it works now with AMD graphics cards.

Umm... okay, so... my CCC is missing and the AMD VISION Engine Control Center never launches. This is another WIN from AMD and their graphics drivers. :down:

 

Why is it such a chore to upgrade drivers from AMD? :dunno:

This is making me glad I haven't tried the 11.7s. Or gotten a 6k series card, since that could be another issue. I haven't had any issue with the 11.6s, except for the weird flickering on the necks of characters in Fallout: New Vegas. That has been present since the 11.4s though, so who knows.

 

Maybe my temptation to get a 990FX board and a pair of NVIDIA cards will come to pass after all.

I had to do a complete uninstall with Driver Sweeper and that worked. I've got it down to a science now. Still, I hate the hassle.

I had this problem too - I ended using system restore as doing the clean sweep just didn't work. Nice to get eyefinity profiles back and nice to know that system restore actually works

That's the only way to do it ;D

 

I never have problems with drivers from either vendor as long as I always full sweep
