hi guys
I've recently installed an HD 6770 but it seems to crash when I run anything that actually makes use of it.

Desktop stability is fine but it crashes frequently with fallout 3. I had the same problem with ArmA. It managed to recover once - VPU recover managed to reset it.

Overheating is not an issue. It's been crashing out with the GPU at full throttle but temperature only about 60 degrees - it will happily go to 80 degrees when doing a burn in with MSI Kombuster.

I've tried using different driver versions (8.872 and also latest version) which made no difference.

My system specs are as follows:
CIT 550u PSU
MSI K9N Neo V3
AMD dual core 4000+
2 gb 667mhz DDR2 RAM
VTX3D Radeon HD 6770
Windows XP Pro

I like this card so has anyone any ideas before I give up and send it back?!

Any overclocks at all?

Can you run MSI Kombuster in full screen mode? does kombuster ever crash?

How many games have you tried?

I've only tried the 2 games, but they use different game engines, and get same problem.
no overclocks in whole system - everything is standard.
I had Kombuster running for 20 minutes, albeit slightly minimised. It's never crashed.

Ok can you try full screen mode? I think the card will use a different power state for full screen 3D apps.

Also are you able to try the graphics card in another PC?
