HD 7970 Screen randomly turns Black


my screen randomly turns black for a few seconds when i'm surfing on the internet or when i'm playing games. I dont get a notification that my driver dont working alright

It happens since one week or so, my computer is new, i build my computer about one month ago...

These are my hardware specs:

CPU: Intel Core i5 3570k
Motherboard: AsRock Z77 Extreme 4
Video Card: HIS Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition IceQ X²
Memory: 8GB Corsair Vengeance
PSU: bequiet! Straight Power E9 580W
Monitor: Dell UltraSharp U2312HM

So, i hope this was enough information about my computer..

The temperature of my video card is on a green level. Under load (FurMark) the temperatur never goes over 80°.

I have the newest driver (Catalyst 13.1)

I hope you know what to do

(And sorry if I have a bad english :D)

    except my graphiccard is different.
    So....hope you guys can help.
  2. Nice to hear that I'm not alone.

    Which graphiccard do you have?
  3. I have a bad monitor that does exactly that. Goes black at random for 1-5 seconds then comes back.

    If possible, try a different monitor.
  4. This cannot be happening.
    It's a new monitor, 3 weeks old... i think thats not the problem
    and i have the HD 7950 ......shit AMD-.-
  5. Yes my monitor is just 4 weeks old...
  6. First of all i want to buy the Nvidia 680 Phantom....but my friends told me i should buy the Radeon HD 7950 half year ago....
    they said these is better...
    i think that was a mistake-.-
  7. In my opinion the graficcards from Nvidea are much better than the cards from amd. I also had a amd Graficcard and I had exactly the same problem like you. 2 weeks later my Pc was bunch of shit. What I want tell you is please send back this bunch of shit and get a real graficcard from Nvidea:))) How the guy before me tells you with 680 you dont make a mistake;) !!!
  8. Unfortunately my Amd turns black again-.-
    Straight a few seconds ago...
    and now im online with my Laptop, so.... my pc is always still black.!
    if this problem never end, i will send this graphiccard back and i will buy a nvidia like my mates said.
    I hope you found help friend:)
