Driver problems with MSI 6950 TF 3

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I used this video card and my screen started to show some weird pixels and bsod, then it restarted. So I thought my video card was defective, and I tested another MSI 6950 TF 3, and it had the same problem. At first I thought it was the 11.8 drivers, but I was able to use the 11.7 drivers for a few hours (showed pixel and bsod the next day when I turned it on). I also tried 11.6b/11.6, but those did not work as well. So I believe this is a driver problem with the MSI 6950 TF 3, and I might need 11.4 or something.. Can it do anything with the switch on top of the card?

Help please, Thanks

I lurked around the driver's thread, and I found a lot of people have the same problems. (Not the same drivers/gpu though) I finally found Drivers Sweeper 3.1(not on guru3d anymore =[), and uninstalled drivers, then reinstalled fresh new drivers of 11.7 and it works fine now.

Now that I fixed the problem; I am starting to wonder if 11.8 will work. I'll try it out later.
