That would suck as it's been doing this since I bought it... I just installed Windows 7 to see if it was the compatibility of the drivers and it ran fine for about two days and then the same problem. Also when i turn my computer on and it has the screen with the motherboard on it and all the different options at the bottom (bios, boot menu, etc) there's lots of black pixels scattered throughout the screen. It's not the monitor as those black dots arent there when I uninstall the drivers. Would you still say its a bad card? if so what should I do?
Thanks a lot for replying btw
Those pixels are signs of a bad card, especially with the original issue you brought up.
You can try to underclock the card a bit, lower the core and memory speed by 5%, then 10%, and check in between how it works.
