Display driver failed?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Was watching a youtube video (firefox, win 7 pro), when the screen flickered and said display driver crashed. Also a funky few beeps. It's working now but when i exit fullscreen the screen has remnants of the video unless i resize it manually...any ideas whats wrong? Or was it just a one time error

It starts freezing a lot when youtube video goes fullscreen, but it's only at 360 (quality). I switched recently from a gtx 460 to a powercolor 6950

That PSU should be fine, but if you can check the 12V rail under load.

Also, did you properly uninstall the nvidia driver prior to installing the ATi driver?

i would (for good measure), uninstall the nvidia and the ATi driver and use driversweeper to ensure it is completely gone. Use it for both nvidia and ATi.

Then download the latest ATi driver and install. Restart, update directx and windows.

repped, thanks, but i used driver sweeper initially and haven't had problems like this until yesterday. It was only w/ youtube going to fullscreen (i even played Battlefield after w/ no problems after) and played starcraft this morning.
