XFX Dbl D Radeon HD 6870 crash - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Thread Starter 
I reloaded the entire Windows7 OS. After I loaded up the appropriate regular drivers, I finally got around to the GPU drivers. And per usual, crash. Nothing. Blank and sometimes colored lines. No use.

So, yeah. Looks like my card is done.

I'm going to buy a new card. If it just so happens that the MB is bad I'm going to throw ****. And just sell everything.

Several. From stock CD to the newest beta to 12.x series and even earlier. All drivers now load, but once the restart is required its the same blank screen. Then its the process of restarting to Safe Mode and use a remover to get rid of all the drivers. frown.gif
Its a circle, a vicious cycle.

I know you said you can't put it in a diff slot because of wires in the way...but is there any way possible to move the wires just for one quick test in the other slot? maybe a friends pc? just trying to exaust every option before you end up with a kinda light paperweight....rolleyes.gif

Actually, I dared to "not care" if I broke anything because there was a mess of plugged in cables in the way of what would be an SLI port. However. moving a lot of cables around and finding different plugs, and a devil-may-care attitude, I was able get the card in the other slot. I was so sure I would have snapped the plastic coating at the base of the cables from the ungodly amount of bending that was required. thumb.gif

But once I got it in, I booted up the system regular. Blank screen. And then I Safe Mode, loaded drivers (I did this twice with a 2012 bld and the stock CD which I think is a 10.x series driver) Same results as if it were in the other slot. So I'm thankful that it indicates that its more of a card issue rather than a MB issue.

I'm just going to bit the bullet and purchase a new card.

Well at least now you know its the card and not the board. Better than buying a card THEN finding out it's the board.

Try baking it. Baking fixes some things..who knows...can't really break it any more smile.gif

Even if that does work, I'd still get another card. I got the 7950 vapor-x. Great card....until i recently decided i want an h2o loop. Didn't do enough research before hand and my card has a custom pcb that you can't buy a full cover block for. I seen on here someone modded one, but all said and done this card (with modded block and vrm block) will end up being like a $500 card. I've seen reference 7970 WITH full cover blocks go on here for like $400
