HI! im just new and my english can be bad, but i'll try to explain my problem
Asus p5k pro
2x2gb PDP LLK
corsair hx 520W
month ago i boutght HIS HD 3850 IceQ 3 Turbo and since then i have problems, i have "gray screen" 1 time per day sometimes per 2 days, but its always the same and it mostly happen when i surfe on internet very seldom when i play a game, 3dmarks, memtest passed fine! no artifacts etc.
what i tried:
install clear system
tried different graphic drivers
turned off integred motherboard sound card
installed new LAN card
set PCI frequency on 102 and 98
one thing yet, that specificationf of my computer is new, i had the same problems with
a64 3000+ s939
i thought that maybe is something wrong witch compatibility, but when i changed processor, motherboard and ram problem didnt disappear
temperatures are ok maximum 70C for GPU
also i tried to set clocks lower than default but i had problems with that becouse atitool and atitrytool crashed system when i tried to set clocks, finaly rivatuner worked but ther was another problem, i had 70C for GPU in Idle with lower clocks
is there something i should try yet?
now i dont know what to do, i will try to give this card to service but i dont believe that will find the same problem becouse its seldom .
I own the same card and experienced the same problem. I had to set the fan speed up to 60% with RivaTuner, reboot, and then alter the clocks to get it to work right.
Also check and see if the power cables are plugged in securely.
