I find myself in quite a situation here. Since few days my video card started working on 99% even without nothing started (any game or 3d studio max).
The GPU is : Sapphire HD 7950 (not bad card at all in my opinion)
I do have the latest drivers for it and also tried to go back to previous version, but without any luck. The problem only occur when Java is installed on the computer. As soon as I uninstall Java everything is back to normal. If anyone have some suggestions please do share. I would like to keep using java, but currently I can't with this problem.
