xFire 5770s random blackscreen

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello all,

I'm experiencing an interesting phantom problem of sorts lately.
It's hard for me to figure out just what is going on because I'm never around when it happens!

I walk away from my computer, come back, and the screen is black.
(No the monitor isn't on standby )

It happens in as short as 10 minutes or as long as hours, the time frame seems to be random as well. I don't think it happens while I'm running an app, only idling on the desktop.

The cards just send an all black screen to the monitor. Wiggling the mouse, hitting the keyboard etc. doesn't do anything so I know it isn't a screen saver.

I have to hard reset, Windows whines about me cutting the power, but otherwise displays no error messages (ATI Display Driver had a problem in the Attention Center, etc.).

Anyone have any clues?
