    I'm afraid that doesn't work, I've already tried that method 4 times but all it does is reinstall the drivers for the card in the green X16 slot since the second card doesn't get detected at all even though its properly seated and the system has an adequate psu (Corsair TX750 V2):(

    Did you try using only one card in the second PCI-e slot to verify that the slot is good and that the card is fully seated?

    I've tried that but the fan on the card would still just spin up to full speed and leave me staring at a black screen, no signal etc.

    The strange thing is that my brother has the same motherboard (M3A770DE) and is using a HD 5770 and that one won't work in the orange PCIE x16@X4 slot either. Same symptoms, fan spins up, no signal.

    I have the same problem with a ASRock 770DE3L. After reading the manual, i discovered they wrote something like 'We've tested Crossfire on this board using a pair of 3870 cards'. That explained why it wasn't working when i tested my 5850 cards. So check your manual and see if it's the same thing.

    I've read the manual and guess what, up to the Radeon HD 4850 works with crossfire -.-' I have to say I'm a little dissapointed in ASRock. They won't reply to my emails, if they did I would've figured this out sooner. But I still don't understand why a BIOS update wouldn't fix the compatibility issue. Guess ASRock simply stopped supporting the M3A770DE...
