Strange Artifacting Problem w/ 7950

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi Everybody,

I have been getting a lot of artificacting over the past few days. It is mostly apparent in videos, but I notice it a little bit in games as well. Here are two examples. http://imgur.com/a/9z0hC I have tried completely new drivers and moving the GPU to a new PCI slot. None of those made any different. Now for the surprising part. I completely took the card out and put in my Nvidia 560ti that I had lying around. Removed the AMD drivers and installed fresh Nvidia drivers - same problem.

Could it be the monitor? The DVI cable I'm using is fairly new, but hasn't had an issue until now. Let me know what you think!

Thanks,

Bob

Maybe some configuration going amiss in display properties ? Since, when has it been doing this ?

Just the last few days. I tried using HDMI (rather than DVI) and hooking it up to my TV. The problem does appear to happen there. So I think it has to be either my monitor or the DVI cable.
