The screen turning off during the driver installation procedure is normal on the HD 6990 if you don't COMPLETELY wipe the previous driver version.

Most of the time, it will completely turn off, you wait a few minutes, reboot manually and then enter Windows to discover everything installed correctly.

Generally speaking the 13.1's are not all that great for the 6990, they are made for the 7xxx cards... My 6990 worked best with the 12.6's.

In terms of terms of 32-bit or 64-bit, are you installing the correct drivers? Almost certain it's not the problem though... But who knows.

Also, wipe the drivers clean and then Windows Update. Try that.

r0k0 February 7, 2013 03:55 PM

yup all been done and using 64bit drivers

Windows Update couldn't do it either?
