I uninstalled all the nvidia drivers/software and then installed the latest catalyst drivers.
So far I've seen some weird glitches on my desktop. I have two monitors. On my 2nd monitor if i left it alone for a few minutes it would get these weird little glitches that would appear, usually around the borders of any windows i had open. if i moved my mouse onto the screen and did anything, they'd usually go away until I left it idle for a few minutes.
And just now I had my mouse pointer go all weird - turned into what looked sort of like three periods on top of each other. And it would change depending on what I moused over or clicked. rebooted to correct it.
Never had any of these problems with the nvidia card.
Yeah i might have had some flash on the screen at the time. I'm not really 'worried', but it is annoying, especially since I had zero problems coming from the nvidia card.
There's no settings or anything to change to fix it?
I had the same thing with my XFX 7970 GHz Ed that I had to return but that one had the glitches even during gaming. So I guess I had a bad card. I took it back and grabbed 2x Sapphire HD 7970 today and here I am with no issues. I saw the glitch once but not red as it was with my XFX. So I hope nothing happens to these 2 brand new beautiful babies. Keep monitoring your PC. If I see the glitches again then I am going to re-install windows completely just to be sure.
PS: I also moved from Nvidia to AMD. These cards are running stock but I'm sure they can reach the levels of GHz Ed.
I get more mouse cursor corruption in multi monitor mode with overclocked cards with a web browser open with the flash plugin loaded, its like this weird combo that causes it for me, i know people still suffer it but its not to much to be worried about its a known driver bug they still have trouble finding the cause of
I only got it with XFX card which was so bad and it would happen with a single monitor. So I took it back. Running 2 cards right now and I haven't seen anything like that. I am talking heavy horizontal lines running from top to bottom. And the coil whine on mine was so bad, it was like a jet engine at 50% fan load. The 2 sapphire don't even come close and barely audible at 70%.
The glitches i was getting are gone now after i updated to the latest beta drivers. however, there's still some glitchiness with flash. Instead of those weird artifacts on the screen there's a delay when ever i open a new tab with anything flash in it. I guess that's better then that was there before. But still not perfect.
I installed their latest beta drivers and that made things a little better. Still a little glitchy since if i open a tab with flash on it, the browser locks up for 2-3 seconds each time I open a new tab with flash on it. But I guess that's a little better then what it was doing it before.
