ATi Display Driver Crashing

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I don't want to be a crashing bore so ill get to the point-

I have a 4870 ATI Power color Card for 1 year with no problems but very recently problems have developed.

Symptoms:

The Display Driver Crashes as soon as Catalyst software is pushed up to 1200MHz/700MHz complete system failure blue screen and then auto restart.

System Only runs now at Default 950MHz/625MHz

PSU is CIT 700w here is a link to is http://www.scan.co.uk/products/750w-...dual-12v-rails

Possible points i have heard about?
  • Is Power supply Amp powerful enough (if so how was it able to run for so long with no problems?
  • Failure PCI-E Port Mother board is Less then 4 moths old Here is the Board http://www.gigabyte.com/products/pro...px?pid=2960#ov
  • Driver Failure
  • Random Ram errors causing cascade effect through system 1 yr old Ram.
  • Corruption from Microsoft Update errors

What i have done so far
  • ran the system with individuale sticks of ram to Isolate the BSODS
  • complete reneawal of 4870ati card + mobo
  • 6x Reinstaled OS 64Bit
  • 2x Ubuntu 64Bit
  • Complete removal of hardware cleaned and electrostaticaly discharged
  • 3dr party software to find drivers or delet damaged drivers
  • arfter system faluiare o/s needed to be started in low rez mode just to be able to restart the system to uninstall catlyest to then start all over again.
  • I have installed from version 8 to latest version driver software.
  • there has been no change to the symptoms it has stayed constant throught.






If you need any more info just ask... This is a reall puzzle for me any help would be greatly apreshated.

sounds like a windows issue, best bet is a clean install of windows and start again. back up and redo the system. that is providing your issues are happening with the new card set to stock.

if your trying to overclock it, its obviously too high if CCC is crashing
