Every time I start up, the screen freezes or freezes with red-green-blue artifacts then goes black, then comes back with the message "AMD display driver has stopped responding and has recovered".

This happens ONLY within 60 seconds of startup and not in general use or gaming to date.

This problem has not been solved although all the threads are closed or marked "solved". The mods aren't helping in this case.

Tons of google searches come up and I have followed their instructions including the following:

1. Uninstall CCC, use DriverSweeper, reinstall CCC and latest drivers (did this twice. no result)

2. Adjusted GPU processing "Timeout Detection and Recovery" registry values as per http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2665946/en-us (no result)

3. Adjusted performance settings in Win7 control panel as per above link (lame. srsly)

4. Physically checked and cleaned case interior and card interior, PSU, and reseated connections

5. Ran Mbam

6. Ran CCleaner

Hello, Welcome to Toms!

Please list your complete system details (Power supply, Motherboard, RAM, graphics card, CPU).

Knowing this information can help us greatly in resolving this issue for you.

However at first glance - it looks like your GPU might not be getting enough power, or maybe it's on its way out even though it seems fine once started up.

I've a PSU Corsair TX 750 V2 similar to yours, with a 6950, 8 GB DDR2 @1066 at 2.2v and a Phenom II X4 965 oced to 3900 and 1,45v and no issues so it's not an underpowered problem.
I even had a 5770 with a CoolerMaster Real Power Pro 550w PSU without problems.
Try the GPU in another computer. If it fails and is new then RMA it ASAP!

I believe the graphics card may be going out. Getting blank spaces in MS Word and other video-related things.

Anyone recommend an optimal upgrade video card for this setup? I wouldn't mind shelling out a bit for something that will last me a couple few years.

Current comparison btwn NVIDIA and AMD/ATI? I have had problems with CCC and ATI. But I don't know if NVIDIA is better.

Basics:

ASUS M4A89GTD PRO AM3

AMD Phenom II X6

CORSAIR XMS3 4GB (2 x 2GB)

Edit: never mind, ordered 6850

Update edit: Thank you Chainzsaw for suggesting the video card may have been on the fritz. I installed the new 6850 today and everything seems kosher and halal.

Idk what caused it to go out but it only started after my Sceptre TV monitor, connected by VGA cable, fried itself one day. In any case, the card was the issue. Cheerio

Here this should fix the display stopped responding and has recovered. This is for the Radeon HD 5770 and might work for all other don't know but it did work for me.

I downloaded the latest driver from AMD for the Radeon HD 5770

after that I started the CCC and in the overclocking I set the setting like this:

high performance gpu clock setting to 500

high performance memory clock setting to 1200

after that no more display stopped responding and has recovered issues.

Note: The only time I ever received the issue was when running Microsoft Flight and the Back to the Future game.

Now when I want to play either I just adjust the overclocking to the above and when I'm done I just click default and go back to
the normal default setting for the card.

Hope this works for all .
