Problem with my PC - Page 2

post #11 of 21
If you want to keep the Tahiti Le version of the 7870 (which from me experience and research IMO ARE better than the other 7870's) you could get the Joker version of the card from one of the Slovenian retailers. Here's a link to some and a link to view a video on the card.

P.S. I do agree that cooling on the Asus is better and I was going to go with one of those or the Gigabyte one but the Tahiti Le is more like a 7900 series card on the low end smile.gif

I would at least try removing the card and re-seating it first just incase it is as simple as bad contact

also if you have access to another graphics card to test in the system that would help diagnose the issue

when the system is hung on the blank screen there should be POST code number or LED's on the Mobo that indicate why the system has halted (assuming you get this blank screen when powering on)

hope this helps

I don't believe there are any LEDs on my Mobo .. and nothing shows on the screen at all.. like its not even connected to the GPU..

So I have now replaced my 7870 with 4850 from my old PC and it worked fine for ~10 minutes.. and same thing happened again.. I'm really getting mad :<<br />

I was already really happy cause I thought I found the source of the issue.. but it doesn't seem like that was it ..


damn damn damn!

could be RAM issue, at least now you know it is not the graphics card, reset your BIOS to stock settings and try with a single stick of RAM , remove all none essental USB devices and hard drives if the problem remains try the other stick of RAM

u could try taking the system out of the case and seeing how it runs on a bench

if you still have a problem it is likely to be the motherboard or PSU that is at fault

hope this helps

some more info:

I only have 1 stick of ram 8GB 1600Mhz
My bios was not yet updated

its really weird with the system.. now with the other GPU my PC would boot up normally after i restart it like 10 times but after a couple of minutes it would say something with AMD Driver crashing.. and it would crash the whole system.
I'm just really confused
Tomorrow I'll try to use the RAM sticks from my Old PC, I believe they are 1333 DDR3, and will reset my bios again..


Also is it possible that something is wrong with Windows 8? .. since I've got it .. you know how ^.^

its worth ruling out download a live cd of ubuntu and see how the system runs, if you still have problems then its not windows

hope this helps

This does not sound like a windows issue at this point... no blue screens....

This sounds like a definite hardware problem - and it's awesome that you had another GPU to try that helps a lot.

Since it is still happening it must be either the power supply or motherboard in my opinion. It almost sounds more like a power supply problem - you should try swapping that from your old system if the RAM swap doesn't fix it. (personally I don't think it's the RAM - again there would be a blue screen)

With it just hanging randomly it sounds to me like it's either at an unstable overclock (reset bios to stock) or a hardware defect involving the power supply or motherboard. If swapping the power supply doesn't fix it then you know for sure it's the motherboard.

If you're still concerned about the 7870 LE (I would be - you appear to indicate that the driver crash does not happen with the 4850) you could test it in the computer you removed the 4850 from. (seems advisable - run a stress test on it or game for a while to make sure it's not defective)

Okay guys ... damn lol.. It was something with RAM... a bad contact maybe.. I just took it out and put it back in, and now it works perfectly with the 7870 inside..

Weird stuff really.. didn't expect that RAM would cause all this.

Thanks for all the help tho tongue.gif
