Hello,

I have a new HIS ATI 5850 Cooler V that runs perfectly in games, but when I am on my desktop I randomly get lines appearing all over my screen. Sometimes it happens right away, sometimes the system can run for hours with no problem. Does anyone have any thoughts on why this is happening?

Here is a picture of what is happening:

That usually means
A) To high of an overlock
B) Graphics card is getting to hot (but since you are at the desktop this seems to be a non-issue
C) You may need to reseat the graphics card
D) The graphics card is dieing and needs to be replaced

A: Running at stock settings...hadn't even tried to overclock when this started happening. Also, it NEVER happens when running in game...only with desktop or other non-3d. However, when it did happen I ran some tests and it forced a restart when trying to go into the 3d test. 725MHz GPU clock, 1000MHz High Performance.

B) Temp not a problem

C) I reseated once, but the case was a little dusty...I may airblast it out this weekend and re-seat.

D) I've only had the card about a month...so at the worst I'll just have to RMA it. It is a pain though.
