6950 Black screen crashing

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I recently got a used 6950 and it seems to work fine up until it crashes during use.

I'm on a fresh install of Windows 7(also happened in another install albeit, more frequently). running Catalyst 13.4. It runs sometimes for hours of use. Doesn't seem to be related to load and the card is cooled just fine.

What happens is the signal for video will die the monitor will be waiting for a signal, i can hear audio for a few more seconds after this till that either dies or gets glitchy and repeats the same millisecond of audio until I have to hard reset it.

I sincerely hope it isn't the card itself, I haven't the money to replace it, and it was supposed to be a birthday gift to brighten up a bad year :\

To give some background, I had sold the card to GTA967. I had been mining on it for a few months and it worked fine. I also did some heaven benching before I shipped it and it ran well. I got the GPU to do the default presets (+AA) for about 14 hours before removing the card. There were no artifacts or reboots during the test that I saw. I also used 13.4 in my system. Did you change your system clock recently?

Maybe try 12.8 instead of 13.4. You could try 13.1 or the betas too if you want but I would imagine 12.8 might be better suited. User the ATI driver cleaning tool in between driver changes.

Do you use DVI or HDMI?

Some of the new drivers have fixes for HDMI, I don't use HDMI but I was having some graphical issues when I was using 13.4 and some of 13.5 which disappeared with 13.6b2

Wow stun.gif.. I'm sorry for the hassle man. It never did that when it was in my PC. It idle and did benching and web browsing (lol). I ran 3dmark 11 and got about 4500 (stock) (best of 5 runs and then did Heaven.
