11.3-11.5 Sapphire HD5850 Problem

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
Back in September 2010, I built my first gaming rig. Aside from some initial CPU temperature problems, everything was running smoothly. Everything was fine until around late October when I began to experience some video problems. The screen would go into this black checkerboard thing and the problem was only resolved by a cold boot. That occurred every once and a while for a couple of weeks and then the checkerboarding went away.

The problem recently returned and I thought upgrading to the latest drivers might fix it (I was running 10.5 for a while), this happened.





Tried 11.3-11.5, performing a clean install every time but this glitch keeps happening.

I am totally lost. If I go back to Catalyst 10, the checker boarding comes back, if I stay at 11, checker boarding is fixed but THAT happens. How do I fix this?

Is your GPU OC'ed? If yes, try stock clocks/settings.

Nope, everything is stock, didn't change any settings in Catalyst either.

All CPU/Memory intensive games.

Have you tested at stock system speeds, ran memtest?

Uninstall your current drivers, no fancy stuff just use the install manager via uninstall a program.

Do not install any driver packages and see if it happens with the default driver that is loaded.
