Auto-Tune not working

I have an xfx radeon 4870 512mb and I can't get auto-tune to work. Everytime I click on it my screen gets these green, red, and grey stripes. The thing says it takes a few minutes, but my screen stays like this for more than 10 minutes. To get out I just press escape, but i'm sure this isnt how to do it.
Can someone give me some help?

I've got the phenom x4 955 BE and a really new motherboard and RAM btw.

i think what he meant is ATI overdrive auto tune which let the program to decide the OC value on your ATI cards.

to OP:
maybe you can post more about your system including catalyst version you're using

Don't bother with the auto-tune it's awful. you aren't going to get much more speed out of a 4870 anyway, 20mhz or so and maybe 100 on the memory if you are lucky.

I have never had much luck with the auto tune. It's not that good to be perfectly honest.

Usually a 4870 has no issues clocking to 800MHz on the GPU and 1000Mhz on the Memory. I would be confident just going in and manual setting these right off the bad. I had a 4870 and did ALOT of experimenting. I believe my stable clocks were 820/1050 with the fan profile on auto. Once at the 800/1000 speed, I would let it run for a few weeks to make sure it is stable, and then you can creep up the clocks if you desire.

I've got a brand new OCZ 550watt PSU, and I havn't had any problems doing benchmarks or prime95, or testing some games. I have the newest catalyst/driver for windows 7 64bit. It's on AMD.com if you wanna see it. Has anyone else had this problem? The screen also gets the strippes if i do the test custom tune option.

Thanks

i think its normal when running auto tune. if you really want to OC your card i think it is better to do it manually. you can check other forum regarding GPU OCing as well if you want more info

Auto tune pushes your card until it crashes, so you do get artifacts while running it.

okay but is it supposed to take a really long time?? By manually overclocking dyu mean by using the catalyst control sliders? thats what i did instead and it seems to work ok......

^Yes, just move the sliders. Like I said 800/1000 should be stable and give you a nice boost. Go from there if you like, but I would go 5MHz at a time and test.

Same thing happens to my current ASUS 4890 1GB and a 4870X2 that I had. All my games work fine at stock frequencies and at CORE 920MHZ, GDDR 1050MHZ.

When I click on "AUTO TUNE" from the CATALYST software my screen switches to a static image. It is an image with stipes, green, orange and gray fading vertical lines, it is not "artifacts" it is a static image. You can switch out of it as you would any other window or program within Windows with ALT+TAB

I have latest v10 CATALYST
Windows 7
