GSOD all games HD 5770

Hey All! So I'm having issues with my Radeon HD 5770 (Powercolor PCS+ 1gb) It was working fine up until a few weeks ago, when every game I tried to play (AC Revelations, SCII, Dishonored, Skyrim etc.) would GSDO 10-20 minutes in, forcing a hard reset...I've tried undoing my overclocks, playing with RAM timings, voltages etc. same issues persist. Any help is appreciated

AMD Phenom II x3 (normally unlocked to x4::B45 3.1Ghz)

ASRock 870 EXTREME3 AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard (usually running the built in Turbo UCC utility to unlock 4th core)

POWERCOLOR PCS+ AX5770 1GBD5-PPG Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5

G Skill Ripjaws F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL 4gb DDR3-1600

550w PSU

500gb HDD 7200rpm

ALL FANS running at 100% (includes GPU fan)

Again this only started occurring a few weeks ago, for the past 2+ years I've had no issues with GSOD...Thanks for any help :)

    From what I've seen is that this happens when your card is close to dying or if it's over heating.
  2. GSOD is one of common issue i heard about HD5k series back in 2009. i heard that amd rolls out driver updates to fix the issue. so have you tried using other driver? if the problem still persist then you might need to get new card
  3. Yes I have the latest drivers, and I hope my card isn't overheating, I'm running all fans at max in an attempt to keep it as cool as possible...I have a new card coming so we shall see if that fixes it

    I posted this in another Tom's forum message but hopefully it will resolve your issue too with the 5770.

    I believe I have finally resolved the GSOD on my system.

    Win 7 - 64
    i7 960
    2 x Gigabyte HD 5870 in Crossfire

    I underclocked the GPU clock to 750 MHz (default is 850) and the Memory clock to 1100 MHz (default 1200).
    Since doing this I have not had any GSOD which I would get within minutes of playing Left for Dead 2 and BF2 Bad Company and I can now play for as long as I want without problem. It has been over a week since I did this.

    I have not flashed the card(s) bios so it is still on the original version and the Catalyst drivers in use are 12.4. I have had GSOD with Catalyst drivers all the way back to 10.9.

    I know I have majorly underclocked the cards but my PC is stable now. I may try incremental increases in MHz
    but to be honest I have had the GSOD for so long, now it is gone I can't be bothered.

    Anyway maybe it is worth a try.
  5. Hey everyone, thanks for the input, I decided just to upgrade my GPU to a 6780 for some newer games I was getting. Thanks again for all the Advice! :)
