[Solved i think] What the hell is wrong with my 5870 ?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
guys i cant take it anymore, every time i open Borderlands and play after 30min or so my PC hard locks and the screen turn into THIS



so i though ohh well maybe its my OC, i set my CPU, RAM to stock clock speeds and i get the same problem.

i though well maybe its my 11.5 Drivers which everyone is saying its a bad Driver, so i removed it and installed 11.3 and i get the something.

i played BC2 which is more demaning game than stupid Borderlands for 3 god dam hours and nothing not a single error.

and dont think i didnt research this on OCN forum, ohhh i did and every dude who every played Borderlands on an ATI GPU is having the same problem, some people fixed it by simply installing the latest Drivers and some RMA their card and got it fixed

so why would you please tell me why does this only happen with Borderlands WHY!!!?

sorry for being so stupidly angry its just this game made me do the following:-
1-run Prime95 AGAIN for 12 hours for absolutely no reason
2-reset my OC even though my PC passed 12 hour test
3-reinstalled Borderlands
4-reinstalled Drivers 11.5 - 11.5b - 11.4 - 11.3 - 11.2 - 11.1
5-reinstalled Windows 7

[Added]
i did do a 1 hour stress test on my 5870 using software called FurMark and the settings are 1080P and AAx8 and AFx16 and my 5870 is overclock from 850/1200 to 900/1300 temps never got above 70C on the GPU

[Added and maybe solved]
ok so i finally solved this stupid problem, so what i did is run Borderlands as administrator (i don't know how can this affect the problem but there you go) and downed clock my GPU speed to 850/1200 instead of 900/1300.
i played for an hour now and so far so good, if anything new happen i'll make sure to post it.
thankx for everyone who help me

Did you check to see if there was a game update for borderlands that addresses this issue?

This happened to me when I first got my 5870.

That was back when Catalyst was still in the low 10's (10.2, maybe?) and it was a known driver issue.

I remember the next driver that was released solved the problem, though, and I've never had an issue with Borderlands since.

(Awesome game, by the way)

what temps are you getting in both games? best to rule overheating out.

if its not temps it seems odd that you get 30mins of gameplay before it does this have you tried adjusting the settings down in borderlands and seeing if it still happens, start with turning off AA and AF if you can.

Could be a memory leak in borderlands, could be bad memory on your 5870, when you removed the old (new) 11.5 drivers did you do it in safe mode? it is possible that there is some residual junk it left behind.

That was the known driver issue that I was referring to. After 20 or 30 minutes of gameplay people were getting the GSOD.

weird guess its a weird combo of the driver and the game creating a memory leak of some sort or something.
