Just got my HD 4870 but my screen flicks? any answers

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Okay i just got it in yesterday and my desktop likes to wigout every so often not all the time but noticable. It dose not do it when i play a game and has not done it since i started it today but still she likes to flicker, i did download the new drivers from ATI but that was yesterday am i answering my own problem by saying could a second reboot from the drivers have helped?



( BY THE WAY I LOVE THIS THING, its big tho.... i mean biiiiiig....)


Someone mentioned that it could be my monitor is not set up right could that be true as well

Thanks guys in advance, and happy early Christmas and happy Christmas eve for those it concerns

Make sure the monitor's refresh rate (in windows) is set to it's spec rate.

Got exactly the same problem - put two 4870's crossfired in my pc yesterday. Peridically the screen appears to shift down for a fraction of a second then returns to normal. Seems to be worse when the graphics cards aren't being worked. As soon as any graphics hungry applications start (watching a film, gaming etc) there's no screen flicker at all.

Tried with different cables and on different monitors and running one card at a time in different PCIe slots. Same problem occurs whatever.

(All driver updates complete!)

HEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLPPPPPPPPPPPPP! It's driving me nuts now!!!

Seriously, if anyone has any ideas please let me (and apgfeb!) know!

Thanks

Alex

I believe you're experiencing pixel walk. You guys use VGA, right? If it's DVI, then this isn't your problem.

So, if you're running VGA and getting this, adjust your settings with this:

Are you guys running a redonkulous overclock on the card? That's the only other thing I can think of.
