AMD Overdrive broke GPU?

By IvoryWinter ·
I recently tried to install AMD Overdrive for my Radeon HD 6870 graphics card because it was performing poorly, but when the installation finished I tried to run the program and my computer froze. When I rebooted the computer worked fine for a few seconds and then froze again. The startup sound plays the same bit like it's stuttering while it's frozen. I can't go into safe mode or go into boot options because it skips right past it into windows.

"I can't go into safe mode or go into boot options because it skips right past it into windows."

Are you coming back from hibernation instead of rebooting? BIOS always has control before the OS loads. Maybe you aren't pressing the keys soon enough.

I'd imagine that whatever settings have been configured in this application (even default) are causing the problem, or there is a driver conflict. How about disabling or uninstalling this if you cant change the settings?
