Drivers or Graphics Card ?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My desktop keeps locking up with blocks of colours then flashes white and goes back to normal. Then a window pops up saying my display driver stopped working. i`am using ati 10.5 drivers but this also happened with 10.4 this is also a clean win64 install. This happens most times i`am on my desktop mainly only once but on the odd occasion twice and once it blue screened any ideas ?

you have a very... intricate graphics situation. My recommendation would be to only use 1 card at a time and see if it affects anything. I'd first take out the 8800gt and remove the nvidia driver and see if anything gets better. Then off goes with the 5970 :O then out with 5870 and 5970 back in.

Just my opinion.

Is this random or is there a pattern? Does it do this sometimes on idle or is it always in load?
