I have had loads of problems with this card. Basically the card blue screens (but not a BoD, rather just one with lines in it) sometimes when i try to full screen youtube videos. I tried updating the drivers but it makes things worse in games (games become slower). I have tried everything to sort an array off issues with this card, I even sent it back to the purchaser to check if it was faulty but it came back as they said nothing was wrong with it.
Antec Earthwatts 500w PSU
Gigabyte p35c ds3r mobo
Intel Core 2 duo e6750 cpu
Asus EA6850 gpu
8gb ddr3 RAM
Windows 7 pro 64 bit
Steps I have already taken:
-updated all drivers
-Installed new fan on cpu to lower average temp (i got desperate)
-Clean reinstalling of windows twice...
I'm running a Sapphire 6850 off the Antec 380, so I'd not think you'd have a problem there. These sound like artifacts from memory. Are you overclocking, either in the bios or AMD overdrive? try disabling overclocking in both places. If you have the Vision software, try running the auto test just to see what you get. Both options are under the Performance tab for AMD overdrive. Note the auto test brings back very aggressive clocks, so you should tune down at least 100 for good stability.
As for overclocking, no it has not been overclocked, though i see where you are coming from as i saw similar problems with an overclocked hd6770.
Could this be related to my hard drive? Because when i reinstalled my old gcard to add stability back into my comp (x1950pro) I have a series of problems with reinstalling the drivers . Ones i have never seen before are there any ways to attach images to these posts as i can show you the screen shots.
check for windows update it everything is ok,get the driver to download on the desktop then clean all the old driver and install from desktop also see if you got net famework 4.0 for ccc to work when the install is don e you should see it by right cliking on the desktop
