Same problem. Can't use the PC. Can boot into safe mode, have tried 11.11 and 12.1. Both are borked.
Tried the second BIOS, same results. Suspect 2D processing unit is f*cked, but I would welcome a second opinion and suggestions. The rep fairy WILL visit anyone who can help me nail this problem.
Thank you,

This may be a driver issue because I am having a similar issue. My PC keeps locking up, and sometimes I get red and green flashes here and there when playing games. I tried uninstalling my drivers and got the same black screen with red and green pixels.

 

I booted into safe mode and uninstalled my drivers which seemed to resolve my issue a little but I still get the red and green lines in games. I've had this happen before and it was a driver issue.

 

May or may not be related but thought I'd share my experience to perhaps help you get to the root of the issue.

**FAO any 7XXX series members with this problem **

I have been through this pain myself with my crossfired 7970's and disocovered that 12.1 is NOT compatible with the 79XX series GPU's according to te ATI website.

Go back to the drivers from your disk, or from the OE website. I use sapphires own now, all problems gone.
