Ok so i rma'ed my r6870 hawk and the new one they sent keeps giving me the (display driver stopped responding and has recovered) error every time a start a game and if i try browsing the web or anything on the desktop it give me the error every
2 to 5 mins my computer freezes then in 3 to 6 sec the screen blinks and the error comes up any ideas.
i have tried fresh install of windows 7
newest motherboard bios
older display drivers
reseating the card 3 or so times
graphics card bios update they where the newest available
installed the newest chipset drivers
and many other things i can't remember
i have no other computer to test with
but my other card worked for a while and played threw battlefield 3 single player 6 to 7 hours
and lots of internet browsing with out ever having the display driver error

its a corsair cx 400watt 30 amps on the 12+volt rail its cutting it close
but by no means underpowered and this card has a display error and my other card
had a black screen computer lock up problem. this guy has the same power supply and his cpu pulls more watts then mine http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2IXajxxHBOI&feature=play...
got my card back from RMA for the 2nd time and it now works to bad its in as poor condition as the last one they sent. my first card was in perfect mint condition and i get back dirty scratched up junk
the person i contacted about my bad card the 2nd time said they would pick one in better condition for me this time i guess she was telling what i wanted to hear.
