    I don't even what is this.

    I mean... if I understand you correctly, it sounds like it could be a driver issue. Try getting the latest drivers and installing them, after properly removing existing drivers.
  2. That may be it the drivers. From what I gathered he was doing just fine and then when he would reboot he would receive a blank screen with nothing displaying. It also may be a weird issue with Windows 8 its hard to tell because he mentions going back to Windows 7.
  3. i went to win 7 because my card was not responding to win 8 after booting

    m totaly gone mad ,,plz help me at dis ,,
  6. Sounds like a driver issue. Since I don't know what driver you are using. Where you using the windows 8 driver for the windows 8 install?

    i was using catalyst 13.2 beta
    :??:
  8. But where you using the one under windows 8 or is it used for both windows 7/8 also, since I don't know AMD drivers all that well it could be an issue with the beta driver and windows 8. Ah just checked so it looks like they work together. However what I have linked is the WHQL driver which is the official release.

    but it was working fyn from like 6 days or so ,,
  10. about a week ago i had gtx 660 .. with nvidia drivers installed ..

    after upgrading to hd 7950 ,, i forget to remove drivers ,, so i was running nvidia as well as amd ,, can this b a cause ?
  11. Have you made any changes. Have you done anything downloaded anything, installed any new programs, anti virus/spam programs. Without having a more clear knowledge I'm going to be limited to what I can say to help you.
  12. can drivers be corrupted by threats ???? coz i always have my antivirus kept to off ,,,

    yes
  14. Anything can be corrupted with threats. I would say its highly unlikely however, I'm just taking a stab in the dark because all I have to go off of is that you have tried drivers out that you have issues with windows 8 running but the second you switch to Windows 7 you are fine. What happens when you try and fresh install windows 8 do you get the same issues?

    i did installed win8 again .. a minute ago ,, gpu working fyn till nw ,, i gues it was possibly a threat ,, coz it happened after installation of dirt 3 crack from skidrow.. my defender was teling me about it ,,, but i dint cared ,,, :cry:
  16. Well at least now you know right? And buy the game no reason to pirate anymore. Plus with ISP's starting to do 3 strike against those who are pirating its just safer better for you to purchase the game. Steam has sales on those sorts of games all the time. Glad your issue was fixed.

  18. Not a problem. I was getting a little frustrated trying to solve your issue but glad it was software related and not hardware.
