    crimson causes black screen on reboot when overclocking with afterburner

    xorinzor

      I'm having an issue which seems (when googling for it) to be quite common but with as of yet no solution.

       

      When I overclock my GPU's with MSI Afterburner everything is fine until I reboot, the screen will be just black. It requires me to go into safe-boot, remove the drivers for my display adapters (gpu's) and from that point on I can normal boot again.

       

      What seems to be happening is that the Crimson Global Overdrive settings are changed into the same as MSI Afterburner's settings. The issue with this however, is that Crimson won't overclock the voltage too, probably causing the drivers to crash.

       

      This could potentially be solved in 2 ways:

      1. Just fix the crimson software, I'm sure there must be some way for this since Catalyst never had any issues with this.

      2. Change the crimson configuration into read-only, prevent it from beeing written to.

       

      The issue with #2 is that, as of yet, I have been unable to locate where these are stored / written to.

       

      Any ideas / solutions would be greatly appreciated!
