I have tried all the published fixes, except the bios flash, my drivers are confirmed as up to date and the old drivers have been COMPLETELY removed( safe mode, deleted drivers, used CCleaner to clean out remnants on C: and reg, dl'd and installed new drivers[dated 1/4/11]), but my VC is still locking up in WoW.
Spoke to ATI on the phone and although they weren't retards and knew about the prob, they pointed at WoW which made me sad , I don't play any other 3D's at the moment, but I'm sure the effect would be the same. Bottom line, I don't buy their explaination.
Is anyone else still experiencing the crash/lock up in 3D games?
Should I go ahead and do the bois flash?
If not, how did you fix it?(don't tell me you bought Nvidia, thats not helpful, troll)
Seriously, I'm at my wits end.
What could I have POSSIBLY overlooked?
I have tried to increase the power slightly, via RivaTuner, but was afraid to exceed any manufacturer tolerences. Would I be able to go as high Riva will allow me without bricking my card?
And yes, I have though of the possibility of the card being bad, but my problem is so incredibly close to the other published problems, and it works fine in other applications, that at this point I'm going to say it's not until I have absolutly exhausted all other possibilies.
