It is as it came, I've nothing overclocked.

What about the 0 MB memory? Shouldn't this be 2x 1024MB

Install the drivers for it and see if that fixes it

Here are the GPU-Z sheets with the 10.5 drivers installed.

Found this on the forums here. This is what I did with my 5970. I had problems with it whenever it was operating in 2D. One of the cores would only run at 175mhz. This fixed it so it would not go below 400mhz in 2D. Worked for me.

PROBLEM 2: Random crashes. Description: While NOT playing games, ie doing anything in 2D or when the computer would go idle or into screen powersaver mode, the crashes were almost certain. Windows graphical corruptions were also a tell-tale sign of the card being unstable and an impending crash.

My solution: Again after much reading, I came to the conclusion that Windows 64bit was not playing nice with my 5870’s powerplay function. Mainly that the idling 157 clock speed was not enough to keep the card stable when idle. After updating the card’s bios, I could go hours without a crash when playing a game, but then it would crash after I was done, when it sat idle on the desktop.

I came across this solution that forces the card to idle (2D) at a higher clock. I had to set it to a clock speed that Windows 7 would be happy with. (For me this was 400 when idle, and the stock 850 when running games)

Steps:

1. Open CCC

2. Unlock and Enable Overdrive if they aren’t already.

3. Go to Options/Profiles/Profiles Manager. Create a new profile. Under composition make sure “ATI Overdrive†is checked. Save and Close, DO NOT ACTIVATE.

4. In windows go to: C:\\Users\\{yourusername}\\AppData\\Local\\ATI\\AC E\\Prof iles (you will need to have “show hidden files†turned on for this)

5. Open the xml document with the name of the profile you just created (notepad is fine)

6. Change the values of the Clock and Memory speeds to look like this (these specific values are what worked for me and my card, use judgment) EDIT ONLY THE BOLD VALUES.



Feature name="CoreClockTarget_0"

Property name="Want_0" value="40000"

Property name="Want_1" value="60000"

Property name="Want_2" value="85000"

Feature

Feature name="MemoryClockTarget_0"

Property name="Want_0" value="90000"

Property name="Want_1" value="90000"

Property name="Want_2" value="120000"



7. Save and close. Go back to CCC and activate the profile you just created.

This will make the card idle at 400core, 900memory. (2D clocks are the "Want_0" values)

Conclusions/Observations: My system has been completely stable for 4 days now, whereas before I would get 2-3 crashes each day.



I know this was long, but after much searching in these forums, I figured I should share my experience and solutions and hopefully help someone with the same issues.

Some info on my specs: Q6600 CPU, 8GB 6400RAM, Win7 64, Catalyst 9.11 Drivers.

Those look good. There's a few ways to getting your 2d clocks up. So get them constantly at 400 mhz and see what happens.

I wish I could do that. I hardly can do anything while my gfx drivers are running, the system keeps crashing every second. And in order to run CCC I need working drivers, you see my dilemma?

Is there a way to increase the idle clock speed without installed drivers, or in safe mode. Or maybe a quicker way, I can make about 1 mouseclick every 20 seconds...

I had absolutely no problems while running 3DMark06, it doesn't seem to crash in 3D.

I managed to copy my overdrive sheet with the 10.5 drivers, The GPU clock speed is at 157Mhz in windows.




Edit:

Here are my 3DMark06 scores, do they look normal for my system? I had only 1-3 FPS at the CPU-Test part, the rest was between 35-100 FPS.

Well you need the drivers installed, no question on that. But here's a way, if you can get into ccc quickly turn on ati overdrive if you need to and immediately go to save the profile (make sure overdrive is checked). Reboot in safe mode and then do all the editing. Reboot back in normal mode and activate the profile.

Another way is to use afterburner to overclock it and thatll raise one of your clocks to 400mhz in 2d mode.

Pretty sure that's normal but i can't remember what i benched with stock settings.

Isn't afterburner only for MSI cards? Does it work as well with xfx?

yes it works for all cards!

you need drivers installed period, the only time you won't have a driver for the gpu installed is if you're changing from ati - nvidia.

The advise you have been given in the posts above and further back are the cure to you problem but you don't seemed to have payed any attention? or not read the entire thread.

It crashes because your 2d clocks are too low, yes you need the driver installed to change this, best to go into safe mode and do it!

Sorry, but I don't understand what you mean. When I'm in safe mode my gfx drivers are not activated, and I can't install them in safe mode.

Further I haven't found an option to increase only the 2d clocks. Overdrive and Afterburner only allow to modify the GPU and the memory clocks, there is no 2d clock setting.

Well, I've upped the GPU/Memory clocks a little to 856Mhz/1110Mhz and it didn't crash so far. It only crashes as soon as I click on "Test custom clocks..." in overdrive. And the screen flickers a little.

Overdrive shows in windows a GPU clock of 400Mhz now(it was 157 before).
