Need help with what I assume is a graphics issue

Hello people that can hopefully help me out with this issue.

I have been having problems with my computer for about a 2 days now. At first it was just graphical tears in games. When that happened I decided to update my video drivers and hoped it would fix the problem. It did not. After installing the new driver an error popped up saying that I had no AMD driver installed or that the current one wasn't installed correctly. After that I decided to shut the computer down and try again the next day. Well the day after that the computer would just freeze after I signed in. I assumed it was a virus at first and launched windows in safe mode then ran a virus scan. This was not the case, there are no viruses on my computer (unless they are undetectable by my CA/Total Defense Virus Protection). I decided to restore the computer to a point about 3 days before the issue started. This fixed the freezing problem but not the graphical tears. I then tried dxdiag after that and I did get an error (only in 64-bit mode) that seemed to be telling me my driver was corrupt. I then uninstalled the driver and decided to try the one my xfxforce recommended I install of the internet. Which then fixed the corrupt driver issue, but now I'm back to square 1. I still have graphical tears in my games, and this is starting to worry me because everything I have tried hasn't worked and I'm starting to think this may not just be a graphics card issue.

My card is a AMD Radeon HD 6770 and hasn't had a problem up until this point. The one think I haven't tried is using the drivers on the actual disc (when I ran the disc it recommended I installed the updated drivers from their website). The games I am getting tears in were games like Team Fortress 2, Civilization V, Zombie Panic Source, and Skyrim. The last think I remember downloading before the problem started happening is a texture pack for Skyrim (which I doubt caused this but I'm just trying to give the whole story so somebody might be able to catch what went wrong) which is at this website: http://www.enbdev.com/index_en.htm

Thanks in advance for any help i get. I'm starting to worry though because I haven't been able to find a solution yet, and usually I can find solutions for most problem I have by just searching the web.

Here are some screen shots of my dxdiag

  1. Your gpu could be overheating download something like CPUID to see how hot your gpu gets during games.
  2. go into safe mode and run this:
    DRIVER FUSION

    then boot normally and install the latest drivers.
  3. I think my gpu actually may be over heating.

  5. Alright I'll try your solution then get back to you on that :D
  6. Alright, this is what happened when I finished installing the driver. It told me there were some warnings in the report and here is the report (or log).

    And this is the error I got from Civ 5 when trying to play a game.

  7. Is there any way for me to tell if I have overheated anything/done damage to my hardware because no matter what I do/driver I install this will not work :'(
  8. Another thing I've noticed. It seems as long as I'm playing the games in a Direct x 9 or less version it works fine. So I am almost positive this is a driver problem, but no matter what driver I install it doesn't work. D:
