4870X2 Blue Screen Of Death Problem.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi how are you. I am having a problem with a new card I bought the Saphire 4870X2 . I am using a Thermaltake TR2 TR-700 700w power supply. The video card recomends a minimum 650w power supply. When everthing is connect both pci express connectors. The picture on my monitor gets two virtal stipes through the screen right from the bios menue to the start of windows. Then when windows stars artifacts began to start , then the "blue screen of death" then the computer re-boots. Is this a power supply issue or a video card issue. The person I bought it from seem like a well educated tech guy, though he recomended I use a 800- 850 watt power supply.
Itried on old HD3870 with this power supply and it works fine. Does any one know what the problem is. Thanks.

As someone who's owned two of them, the 4870x2 is nothing but problems. One of mine is dead and the other well on the way to dying. If you manage to get it to work you'll find that the drivers still don't work right after all these years and half your games won't work right, let along work at all..

I think I might to register it with XFX. I know the guy who had it before did it. I'm not sure how that works to transfer warranty but I have to give it a try. Has any one ever had any experience transferring life time warranty with XFX cards.

Is there still any way it could be a power supply issue, or is that highly unlikely.

To transfer the warranty you have you register the card and get a code from the other guy. Then that lets you transfer the warranty as long as it hasn't been transferred twice before.

I am sure he gave me some paper work with some numbers or codes on it. I think he may of been only the second owner.

The card basically suffers the same problem as the original Xbox 360's, it runs so hot that eventually the solder contacts break on the card and it doesn't work.

You can try to oven bake it if XFX deny you any warranty, mine worked like a charm until heat eventually killed it.
