x1900xtx freeze while playing games/movies?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 


I get that message after playing a game/movie for about 5 minutes at the most. If its a game it will freeze it for a second give me that message and change my screen resolution to whatever my game resolution was at. then i can keep playing with game with no errors after...

But while playing Movies it gives me the message and sometimes reboots my PC on its own. The times it doesnt boot my PC it says no signal on my PC for couple of seconds then give me that message.. the fan speed increase dramatically and it gets loud right when this happens and then it goes back down when the message pops up..

I tried flashing it to different bios and have tried different drivers but still no luck. It supposely be a X1900XTX, but just in case I even flashed it to a XT version and still dont work. Does anyone know *** is going on??

Temps are fine, I watch them while playing games/movies and they dont go over 57 celcius. However... my CPU temps are kinda high (in 50's) can that be causing a problem like this?

ATI experts please help me out here as I beent rying to solve this since last 3 days. Thanks in ddvance.

Did this just suddenly happen?
Were you OK before?
Are you OC'ing the 1900xtx?
Have you tried changing Resolutions?Format?
What video drivers are you using?
Are you using pirated games or Movies?
Have you installed updates to your Media player?
Have you tried a different media player?

Answer these questions and you will narrow
the fault candidates a lot.

A friend gave me the card and told me he did a bad flash on it and all I have to do is flash. I flashed it to X1900XTX. Its been doing it ever since I got it.

I'm not ocing, however I am underclocking to see if it helps. I ever flashed to X1900XT from XTX and drop down clocks from 650/800 to 500/700 and it didnt help @ all.

I tried changing resolution, and already tried format.

Tried 7.2 8.1 and 8.2, none of them helped..

Games/Movies (from dVd's) are legit.

Media Player 11. Everything is updated.

Yes I tried a different Media player. I dont think its going to help because its causing same problems in games too. All the games i tried on it... People on other forums think my Power Supply is going bad, but I dont believe that because i was running 2X 7800 GT's on it like a month ago.

If available, reinstall previous video card.
Assuming this works OK your defective
Assy is the 1900XTX or software associated.
Attack at this angle and I will too. Give me 24HRs.

[B]"A friend gave me the card and told me he did a bad flash on it and all I have to do is flash. I flashed it to X1900XTX. Its been doing it ever since I got it."

ANSWER:

I did some looking and no one else is complaining of the symtoms you are discribing, best guess is a damaged 1900XTX.

Since Media Playback and Games probably use some different circuits and firmware the "bad flash" is the likely source of your problem.

I think you are dead meat but others on this forum flash for sport and could recommend a fix.

I am not a good guesser so try and prove it in this way:

1. Install suspect bad flashed 1900XTX back into your friends PC and test it on his/her system.

2. Re-install the card you had previous to these problems into your own system and retest for the faults.

I wish I could tell you to GO TO U38 Pin 4 and see if it is floating or at ground, etc., etc., etc.

Lacking details the swap-outs discribed above should identify your problem.
