Possible 5850 issue

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I had a 9800gtx a while ago and was unable to run Heroes of Newerth with those drivers, so I switched to a 5850. About 3 months after I got it, I getting a strange issue. My screen would turn into a random colored array of pixels and everything would freeze. I was forced to turn it off with the power button. Sometimes it works for a few hours without anything happening, sometimes it happens within 2 minutes of the computer being on. Recently it's gotten so bad that I can't even use the computer. However, sometimes it also just turns off completely sometimes like i unplugged it without the pixel screen.

TL;DR: Computer freezes with random colors on the screen need help

It certainly looks like it. That's the epitome of artifacting.

Yeah looks like a Dead GPU or something is overheating badly.

Well that sucks. It's been way too long to try and RMA it or anything so I guess I wasted $200. I wasn't sure if anything else besides the GPU could cause this so I held onto it for a bit. Thanks for the answers though guys
