Flash player crashing my GPU?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys.


When playing flash videos, my GPU displays some very odd behaviour. It'll start with a kind of horizontal flickering (lines going up and down) and this will progress to the entire screen turning yellow. Sometimes it'll recover, sometimes not. What's more, GPU seems to be really picky about when flash is gonna crash it and when it won't. I was already worrying something would have leaked onto it and shorted something out or something like that, but games do still play fine, which doesn't make any sense now, does it?
I'm using the Catalyst 13.8 Beta drivers and my guess is that those are the root of the problem, but a quick search didn't suggest other people had similar problems with them.

Anyone know what's up? Thanks in advance.

could be Hardware Accelerator being enabled. Right click video and go to Settings and disable it.

Of course, that fixed it. It is, however, still worrisome.

i had this problem today and its never happened before. I was watching a youtube video when all of a sudden my screen was filled with horizontal lines of different colors and flickering. First time I have ever seen this. I got worried since this is a brand new build so hopefully it has something to do with " Hardware Accelerator"

 

my CPU/GPU both run very cool and the only thing overclocked which is very small is my GPU which all I did was switch to my second BIOS for that Boost OC that was like 950/1250.
