I just bought an new XFX DD 7950 and installed it into my pc and windows automatically downloaded the "amd radeon 7900series" driver but when I tried to do something for EG Browsing the Internet. After a few minutes the screen would either blank out and reboot or else the screen would black out with symetrical lines going down the screen. I have been through many forums and done everything I think possible, I have redownloaded drivers, driver sweeper, clean install on HDD, format HDD, try it through safe mode, reseat card, delete all driver and just install the ones I need. I have done everything and it is not my system either here are my specs:
XFX 750W XXX
Athlon 450 3.2ghz (bottleneck anyway, I know )
4GB Crucial 1333mhz (tested on memtest and works fine)
Please help guys I'm not sure if it is the card or drivers but if it is any help I was able to get into the Crysis pre-release demo after trying for ages and I was playing it for 2hrs straight maxed out and the temps were fine.
Il ring AMD tomorrow but guys please help, I will literally kiss your shoes if you help;)
Yep, Ive done a fresh install of windows, When the screen goes black sometimes the sound stays and sometimes it just goes all distorted and reboots. After being on the internet for a while it just artifacts with symetrical lines down the screen.
My PSU is an XFX 750W XXX edition with 62A on the 12V rail
Yeah I think i will, I was just trying to rule out if it was a driver problem or the card itself but it seems to be the card.
Here is the picture of the artifact I get after being on the internet or starting a game
