A couple of days ago I got into playing Bad Company 2. My PC runs it fine, but starting last night - sometimes my screen will randomly have streaks going all over the place. Once this happens, my other games also start having glitches, such as constantly flashing backgrounds.
I also noticed that the few times that I tried to ignore the streaks and continue gaming - my screen will turn black and I will have to CTRL-ALT-DELETE in order to exit my game. Once I do, on the bottom right corner of my screen will have the error "Display driver amdkmdap stopped responding, and has recovered."
I'm a bit of a computer noob, but so far I have updated to my latest card drivers (10.7) and checked my GPU temps, which according to Catalyst Control Center, is 60°C idle, and around 75°C under load.
This is a very frustrating issue, I never had any problems with my card before and I would hate to have it die on me.
Any advice or solutions would be greatly appreciated. And also, I am open to any recommendations if I do have to replace my 4850.
Thanks in advance. And pictures of issues are attached.
