Hd 4890 artifacts and bluescreen. Tags: Power Supplies Blue Screen Components Last response: September 1, 2011 10:26 AM in Components Share manishman001 August 31, 2011 11:50:18 AM Hi there. i recently finished building my pc and have just upgraded to a xfx hd 4890, which is very power hungry, and have encountered problems. when playing a game on high settings the screen goes blank, has artifacts all over it, and then crashes to a bluescreen or just a no signal cable screen. i have a generic **** psu and am wondering if it is that that s causing the problem or the gpu. i have underclocked gpu and cpu and that has helped but not solved it furmark runs fine though. here are my specs.
