More about : hd5850 error rogigor July 24, 2010 11:22:03 AM Try another graphics drivers and, if possible, try your graphic card in another computer and see if these artifacts show up. joozaf July 24, 2010 11:48:53 AM I am having the latest drivers, can't imagine how downgrading would help (?). And no, using the card on another computer is impossible because the other PSU is insufficient.

You may have chance on defective card. For the money spent on that board you should not have such issue. joozaf July 24, 2010 1:25:06 PM leon2006, if everything else fails, I'll RMA the whole computer. I'd like to troubleshoot as much as I can back home, though. leon2006 July 24, 2010 6:15:27 PM Artifacts are GPU board related in most cases. It has nothing to do with motherboard or memory. Its your choice. ATI GPU's are known to have defective units. Try to clock down the GPU core and memory (one at a time). If the problem goes away it most likely GPU board related. What power supply to you have(model & brand)? joozaf July 24, 2010 6:41:15 PM 600W Silver Power joozaf July 24, 2010 6:52:15 PM Thanks, leon2006, I tried downclocking: it worked. I'm taking my PC to guarantee. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
