Hi all, was hoping that someone could give some insights as to what is currently going on with my new GPU. I just recently purchased the HD 7850 and am having weird color display problems. Random colors seem to appear on the screen, some a lot worse then others. From mild discoloration to very badly corrupted. The first thing that came to my mind was the frustration of having to RMA the card. However one thing I've noticed is that all the corruption issues seem to only happen in the firefox browser only. The problem will go away if I "click" anywhere in the browser or if a minimize and bring it up again. This problem never seems to come out anywhere else, I've used IE for several days no problems and not even gaming. Gaming sessions are just fine and no problems whatsoever there either and anything I do on the desktop seems to be fine also. It is only when I use firefox, the random colors seem to come out.
In addition other weird things that I've been noticing ever since I installed the card.
-The Metro UI for Win8 seem to distort slightly whenever the UI is rendered/animated, but only in certain situations.
-The boot logo appears to run in a much lower res or the boot logo no longer appears or will sometimes appear for a split second then disappear.
-This ONLY happened ONE TIME but upon reset, on the second boot I had weird vertical lines of different colors on top of the screen, but then suddenly disappeared and booted just fine.
Right now obviously I'm hoping this to be some sort of software problem. So I'm currently using IE to see if the corruption happens again. Can anyone give any insights as to what is going on?
