AMD Radeon 6800 HD randomly crashes to black screen, wonky sound, not reproduceable error.

Hi everyone;

Been having trouble with my AMD Radeon 6800 HD card, I think.

Symptoms:

- Cut to a black screen.
- Alternatively, when enabled "Graphics OverDrive" in "Performance" in Catalyst Control Center, instead of cutting to a black screen, it cuts to a bunch of linear cubes, then black. No error is displayed.
- Sound plays as normal for a few more seconds, but goes wonky after.
- Unresponsive to anything. Cannot Ctrl-Alt-Delete or Alt-Ft. Requires a hard reboot by pressing power button.
- It's considered disconnected to any online services (Vs. when a program crashes sometimes it's still "online" if you don't close the error prompt)

It seems that I can play multiple games at the same time with no problems (For example, Starcraft 2, Tropico 4 and Sims 3 at the same time ), but when I run the MMO Mabinogi, this occurs after an entirely random time. It is not reproduceable. There is no common denominator. I could be killing monsters, or fishing, or just AFKing. It could happen as soon as I start the program, or it can happen 6 hours in.

Doing a quick google search suggests that it is a problem with the card as I found similar issues with another game but no solutions. - Forum - Technical & Account Support - Computer Crashes after random time played. - Path of Exile

Things I've tried but didn't work:

- Reinstallation of the game
- Registry cleaning
- Changing settings on the "Overdrive" in Catalyst Control Center.
- Resetting all settings to Default in the catalyst Control Center.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

  1. graphics overdrive? So you've been overclocking it? Put it back to stock and see if it keeps doing it.

    I disabled Graphic OverDrive but it still crashes.
  3. Hi,

    I have the exact same card with the exact same issue and I am really interested in whether or not you sorted this out?

    I've tried a lot of things and run diagnostis on the card. My temp doesn't seem to get too high (maximum of 75c) but my gpu usage is always at about 99 when running any kind of game or benchmark test regardless of settings.

  4. Hey guys, I too have been noticing this issue. Recently I have Uninstalled the driver and reinstalled it and that has worked for me. However I'm not sure how permanent the fix is as I feel as though I did it about a year ago as well.
