HD 5870 need some help guys

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
can someone help me with my problem?.. i messed around with my laptop and bit of scared because i tried to overclock my gpu over catalyst overdrive.. i enabled the overdrive and i maxed it all, then after hitting "apply" my screen suddenly goes black.. i wait for 2-3 minutes but nothing happen, so i tried to restart, but every time it opens after a few seconds it will go black again..

and after that i cannot open the catalyst control center.. so i tried to uninstall the drivers and install again but it did not detect my video card, so i used the system restore.. now it's ok but the problem is, i cannot open the CCC..

sorry for my bad english.. i hope you get my point..

Don't worry what you encountered is normal.
You tried to OC your graphic card way too far without overvolting it !

You have to go into safe mode
then uninstall your drivers
Then launch Driver sweeper

Reboot

Reinstall drivers

Reset CMOS and retry.

If not working, take your card out of the computer and put it back.

Knives, can you please give more detailed information on what is going on so we can help you?

1. Is the gpu working right now? Do you have picture on your notebook?

2. What do you mean when you say "it doesn't install drivers"? Does the system freeze, are there any error messages or something?

3. Can you get into the safe mode? If you can, and you use driversweeper to remove ATI drivers, what is happening after you restart? Is your GPU working, can you get into windows etc...
