I built my rig 5 days ago, but I played for the first time 2 days ago. While I was playing Skyrim, the screen went black for less than a second and then it returned to normal. I ignored it, but it happened again 5 minutes after that, so I stopped playing.
Yesterday, I wanted to play Skyrim again and while I was playing, the screen went black again, but for 3 seconds and with a green horizontal line on the screen. Fearing it would happen again, I stopped playing Skyrim and while I was on Google Chrome, it happened again. This time, it was not one green horizontal line, but all the screen with green and black squares!
I turned off the pc, removed the card and then, put it again. I turned on the pc and ran 3DMark11 with no problems.
Today, I played Skyrim for an hour, until I saw a medium white horizontal line without a black screen.
I don't know what happens, my drivers are the most recent ones from AMD (catalyst 13.1). What should I do? Does this mean I have to get an RMA?
I installed MSi Kombustor and I'm thinking to run a GPU Burn-in test. Should I run it?
try getting drivers from msi website
i guess that might work out with your issue
cause for my xfx hd5770, i used ati drivers and found it was not ideal
and xfx drivers were slightly more tailored for my card
