Can you help x850 overheating/rebooting?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
ok so here's the story.

Im in bios, adjusting speed settings on my memory manually, then save to cmos and restart to a blank screen. power button on my monitor is just flashing. After a few attempts to get it up and running i come to the conclusion that the memory cant handle it. i try to clear clear cmos with the jumper about 2 to 3 times with no luck. Finally i pop the battery that retains all cmos info., replace, and power on. Comp boots up normally and all settings are back to default. Update the mainboard bios to the most recent one and away i go.

Here's where it starts to get confusing. I've been running a x850pro flashed to the xtpe Bios STABLE for almost a month now, with an upgraded zalman vf700 gpu cooler. Well when i opened up ati tool i watched as the temp went from 32 to 42 to 46 to 52 all the way up to 65 where the framerate locked and i got the black screen. Now this is just with the 3d show open. No artifact scanning. nocore max or mem max testing. My normal readings BEFORE i cleared cmos was 30 - 32 idle and 50 - 55 load. with a slight oc above normal(540/590) xtpe settings. I tried reflashing the card with the bios and uninstalling and reinstalling all drivers (ati catalyst 6.2 and the current omega drivers) All to no avail.

So now im stumped. I mean i can still play bf2, Although it seems to freeze and lock up more often now. And temps are reading between 53 and 56 when im playing. I dont get it did i damage my video card? any thoughts or ideas or solutions is appreciated.

oh yea and i checked all fan settings and all are reading at the highest rpm that the fan goes to.

thanks in advance ppl. sorry to be such a noob

All I can think of here is to check that your PCI-E freq in the bios is set to 100Mhz.

everything is set up as you said but im still having problems. the "video bios cacheable" and "pci/vga pallete snoop" dont have anything to do with it do they?

The PCI/VGA option might be related. What options does it give you?
