    Unhappy ASRock Extreme3 Gen3 + Sapphire 7970 Ghz Vapor-x 6GB issue! Please help!

    Hy there!

    I've bought a 7970 GHz edition vapor-x 6GB, but I have display only without drivers. When I install driver ( no matter which) the pc freezes after windows loading screen. I've tried everything but I'm so tired and don't know what to do. My old 6950 works perfectly. The card has 2x8 pin connectors. May PSU has two 6+2 connectors, so the card has the power what needed. In windows I can see the card, but when I install driver and reboot pc crashes.

    1. Tried to remove all of memories, leaving only one in slot. Removed all HDD-s, only system SSD was in. Removed CPU, and put back in mobo.
    2. updated bios. tried 2.30, now I have 2.31a
    3. Reinstalled windows (not updated)

    I don't know what to do. Any ideas?

    Hi

    Have you tried the card in another system?
    Crashing/Freezing after driver install is usually a symptom of a faulty card.

    You were right. I had a faulty card. A new 7970 has arrived, and works perfectly, no problem.
