6950 whining noise an artifacting, driver issues?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
hi everyone, didnt really wanna make this thread but i need answers
yesterday i made a thread speaking about how my 6950 was making whining noises when playin games and on GTA IV there were lots of green artifacts appearing on the screen after a while i was convinced this is a dead card and needs RMA, but since i have been told that the card is fine and i just need to install 11.1 and 11.1a drivers to fix this, (i dont have internet so i cant really get them just yet will get um next thursday) so i was just wondering should i cancel the RMA cause tbh i have found thread describin my exact problems and there cards are fine

Are you getting these artefacts anywhere else apart from games? For example, at the POST screen, at the Windows loading splashing screen?

If you're not getting it in 2D settings and only 3D you may still have a borked card. If you're online now why not download the 11.1a hotfix drivers for when you can install them? If you still get them after trying those then RMA your card.

You haven't flashed it to a 6970 have you?
