  1. It's not your PSU, I have a TX650, previous card used same watts as 7850, and I have seen others with this issue and have it myself, plus the rattling fan.
    Is this a problem with the non ref Gigabyte 7850? I'm pretty pissed and this will likely be my last AMD/Gigabyte card.
  2. YEah so.>>>
    what the hell should i do? which drivers are u runnin?
  3. You stop the screen flicker and the card shut off by raising the minimum clock.
    I still have a screen 1 sec black out issue, and the 12.5 leaked beta is still buggy (but at least usable for a change)

    This will be my last amd card, this is a known issue for a long time with previous cards. Just like they've never properly supported OpenGL. F that.

    YEah man all the games freeze and then crash to desktop without any error !!! they run fine for about 30 mins.. So i should wait for 12.5 drivers rite ??
    what are ur specs btw!
  5. When i install 12.4 they are a complete mess! screen is flickering while idle and in games! but in 12.3 it doesn't flicker !

    12.3 and 12.4 dont work with one of my games(Forsaken World), and it still spews the occasional amd file error occasionally with the leaked 12.5 beta, just 90% less.

    12.3 still flickered for me, no flickers in games unless its a weak game like FW that doesn't require enough power to force the card to stay 3d mode. though they all cause some odd texture flickering in FW.

    Like I said you need to manually edit the profile to raise the idle clock speed, google it. My card was crashing with recovery errors over night, that and the flickering went away after setting min clock to 500 and min ram to 700.

    TX650 (4 years powered on)
    p67a ud3 with buggy outdated bios with no Ivy support since Giga decided the identical B3 board bios updates shouldn't work on the recalled boards... hopefully the incoming rma is a B3 or board upgrade
    2600k
  7. so i should upgrade the drivers and raise the clock speed!
    but what abt games crashing to desktop without any error after 2-3 seconds of freezing and black screening ........ ?? :-/
  8. what game? haven't had any ctds.
  9. all games
  10. when you upgraded card, did you clean install drivers with driver sweeper?
    I had hard system locks until I did that.
  11. Yup i did that!
  12. dunno then, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crash_to_desktop
    last few lines on that page might help you track it down.

    My best guess is these cards are utter trash on both hardware and software ...
  13. Yup! i m never going to buy AMD again and GIGAbyte !!
  14. Yours is Gigabyte too?
    Over on OCN, a guy with a Giga card had same issue.
  15. Maybe its a driver issue ... BECAUSE the games stop responding .., :(
  16. Sorry this wasn't asked before but did you connect the 2 6-pin power connectors from your power supply to your graphics card? Because there's no way it will work without that.
  17. i had this problem as well ( drives stoppeds responding, dxrenderer error , shut downs ) and i tried every trick in the book...clean install, driversweeper, older drivers, leaked drivers, re-install dx11 etc etc. The only thing that worked was an RMA. Spare yourself the time and frustration and get a replacement. Trust me. ( make sure the replacement has a different serial number) Once the 7850 works...it rocks!!
  18. OK ... What are your normal values in AMD OVERDRIVE ? the memory clock and etc etc?
  19. babarv2 so did you plug the 6 pin connectors?
  20. ofcourse man! i aint a noob !!!
  21. I have a HIS 7850 and my screen wont go full size even tho it says its in 1080... from what I saw, it only had one 6 pin connector... but the instructions says it has 2.. could these just be "generic" directions that they send out with most of their cards? this card is making me lose my mind like fo reals..

    Your problem is different.

    I'm sure mine is a driver or BIOS issue related to the 2d/3d clock switching, because I have no issues in most games, and the monitor has never blacked out in a game - only with movies, or on desktop with a game in background utilizing 0-2%. Most issues were fixed by raising the 2d clock ...

    7850 only draws 130 watts, and only has 1 connector AFAIK.
  23. My problem is solved thnx guys for your replies !!!

    same here, while gaming i've got no problems. but when it switches to cut scenes - movies or scrolling web sites the screen is trembling - blinking.

    All you have to do ,,,, is to manually raise the 2d clocks ! while they are Idle ...
