Look at this when troubleshooting ATI Radeon HD 4870X2
 
I just bought an ATI Radeon HD4870X2 and well in some cases my very old card 1900XTX worked better, much better. And I am not the only one! The official forum ATI is chock full of people with my same problem I have tried everything, I installed all the drivers as possible the original and not starting from a restore clean with Driver Sweeper. In short I need to troubleshoot ATI Radeon HD 4870X2 but facing problem in that.

I am also facing same problem and the only thing "in doubt? is the power supply. The board recommends at least a power supply 650 Watt, because with my old 400W after a while ' the comp you turn off. My dealer then?s mounted a good power supply 500 (Blue Storm II 500) and the comp has not been extinguished. The assembled the 500 because at the time he did not have a more powerful one.

Check the temperature of your Northbridge the problem was found to be in notebook because of overheating in most cases, so just cool with a fan. In other cases, the vga does not pass the switch 3d and remains in frequencies 2d. Maybe post a screen of GPU -z it see to how fast works the PCIExpress and if the crossfire is active. It is not the best, and at low resolutions curbs the card.

I do not know, the comp is well ventilated. The graphics card is at 70-73 degree at idle. I just tried other drivers even more recent ( Catalyst 8.9 BETA ( 8.53-080820 ) - TechPowerUp! ) But all went in vain, I meant no success with thing with what can I monitor the temperature of the Northbridge? I will be waiting for the related reply. Anyways thanks for the reply.

I tried to install Hardware Sensors Monitor 4.4 and as a temperature generic motherboard gives me 47 degree. Value this reported by SpeedFan as Temp2. In general, however, I had trouble installing these programs because my windows do not allow installation of drivers unsigned. However, Windows has restarted a sort of test mode I cannot remove ok, I get a restore point.
