Try an older driver. There have been quite a few problems with the newer drivers so it might work better with an older one.

It's always possible that the PSU could be just fiinding it a bit much with the overclocked card but I wouldn't have thought so.

As part of the trubleshooting with support and my reseller (cant remember which) we actualy downclocked the card to the stock speed with no change. Will try an older driver as you say. Anyone in particular i should be looking for?

I am not sure to be honest but I have asked my colleague to have a look at your thread as he knows more about AMD than I do.

Hi there,

until last week I was running this Mobo but with an ATI card not NVidia. I had been using the F4a BIOS without any problems so maybe it would be worth trying that as it might help.

Have you left your RAM at the Default settings in BIOS are have you manually set the timings?

Its the default settings i have not changed anything in the bios. Cool havent checked the bios updates for the mother board in a while. Gona upgrade to F4A as soon as i get home and report back.

Edit: Was looking at erlier drivers and the furthest back i can go is 258.96 it seams. Know if that driver is ok to use (i could be wrong but i think i used this one when i first got the card.)?

Hi there,
that driver should be OK. Do you still have the original Install Disk that came with the Graphics Card? If you have it might be better to try running those.

When you update BIOS remember to use the QFlash Utility rather than @BIOS and also remember to load Optimised Defaults in BIOS after you have completed the Update.

Yeah qflash used when updating. Have not done the "optimize defaults" yet though. Will do that as soon as i get back home again after work. I uninstalled the current 260.99 driver by following a guide on how to uninstall in properly with driver sweeper and all. There was a link to the guide in a previous post on this forums. Installed the drivers on the cd which followed the card. Didnt have time to check what version it was before i had to sprint back to work :)

Will give it a test run tonight after the optimize bit is done.

Nope still crash the system however i was on skype with a friend during and this time we could still speak meaning the whole system did not go down as it has in the past. So i guess thats a step forward. Any other ideas. Im back to my old HD3870 whitch works fine.

In that case it sounds like it is only the graphics sub-system that has gone down.

You did say the card has been RMAd before didn't you but without anything being found? It's just that my feeling would be to send the card back now.

As part of the trubleshooting with support and my reseller (cant remember which) we actualy downclocked the card to the stock speed with no change.

Did you leave the card at stock or have you over clocked it again?

You could try adjusting the PCIE Clock frequency in BIOS and see if that helps. I wouldn't suggest making a big change but try increasing or decreasing in steps of +1 or -1 each time but don't go above 105 or below 95. Sorry I can't be more precise but finding the right setting is really dependant on each individual PC and graphic card. If I was going to guess at where to start I would probably try increasing the PCIE Clock frequency to 101 MHz or 102 MHz. The only way of finding out if things improve is to try running the PC again and if it crashes try increasing the frequency again. If you get to 105 MHz and nothing has improved try again but starting at 99 MHz and then try decreasing it if it still isn't stable.
