Hello,

I bought a new system with a Powercolor HD 6850, I am having problem with the gpu.

My spec
Asus p7p55d-E LX
i5 760
ocz 2gb RAM (i stick is defect)
Powercolor HD 6850
WD 1T black caviar
ocz 600w psu


I have installed
catalyst 10.10.
Driver Packaging Version 8.782-100930m-106343C
Direct x installed
Win XP 32

Here the problem:
- The video cards in CPU-Z is detect as a core: 100mhz, memory 300mhz, no shader
- Performance Test : cant run 3d test since I have reduced rendering-capabilities
- 3dmark06 : cant open the program, i have no idirect3d9.
- Eve online : would not even open
- Screen is flickering in explorer when i scroll.

I had problem with the installation at first, no image but I removed the driver and software, cclear and driver sweep, reboot, reinstall.

It is a defect card ? Anythings I can do ?

Thank

I think this is driver issue...
Download the latest driver (10.11) from AMD site and install it, make sure you get rid (uninstall) the old (10.10) one...
If the problem remains then RMA the card, you might get a defective card.
