Ati radeon hd 5670 help

Hello folks, I've had a ati radeon had 5670 for 2 years now, and this week has been horrible. My graphics card started crashing my computer when playing games and watching youtube, it flashes my screen gray for 1-10 seconds and then it goes off. My cursor becomes a bit depixalated and i fear that it will damage my cpu aswell as other stuff in my computer.( I don't know much about computers.) So what i'm asking you guys is it my graphics card that is causing this? Today I played path of exile for 30 minutes and it flashed and i just turned off my computer as soon as i could It scared me to death. So i opened my computer and i cleaned it after 2 years. ( I know horrible right? ) But it still crashed, it didn't give me bsods or anything it just restarts my computer. I get 56-54 Celsius temperature using the AMD program and the fan at 28%. Please help.

  1. Hey mate I'm in the same boat as you, my 5870 is doing shit like that and the only thing that has sort of helped (only for a week) is rolling back the drivers to your first driver for your gpu and then updating catalyst. My pc worked fine for a week but it started shitting itself 4 days ago.

    Yeah, I'm probably just going to buy a new graphics card or something maybe even a new power supply thought I have a 700 watt which im debating on getting a 800 watt.
  3. It sounds like the GPU is failing but causing damage to other components is extremely unlikely.

    Unless you think your power supply is buggered don't bother 700 watts should be more than enough, save some more money and get a 290
  5. EDIT: My cursor starts to freeze, i cant even play osu....

  7. You are experiencing a GPU failure. If you have an intel processor, I recommend you take the GPU out and switch to Intel HD until you purchase a new GPU.

    Well, should I just buy a complete new graphics card? I was thinking of getting the gtx 650, I'm on a tight budget.

    Buy a new graphics card. I would recommend you buy the GTX650Ti as it is MUCH better than the 650, and it costs about $20 more. Good luck!
