HIS HD5870, sparkling pixels

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi,
I've got a problem with my HD5870 (HIS HD 5870 iCooler V). There are "sparkling" pixels/groups of pixel on my screen, when im playing games - it happens also in menu.
There are some pictures:

but its hard to catch it because they are blinking pretty fast.

There was no OC and temps are ~50-55C after a few hours in game. It happens only in games, I was testing card with FurMark, and everything was fine (no sparkling pixels).

Is there any way to test the monitor separate from the card.

try driver update/rollback and if possible try baking the card it can cure a dying card sometimes........
my freind had this kind of problem but only in specific games like crysis and it was gone after he updated the drivers and fyi he had a gts 450.....

What drivers?
Look like miss coloured pixels or artefacts signs of a overheating, dying card or unstable memory clocks. Could also be drivers.

Monitor is fine, im using gf9600 as replacement actually. I dont think that card is dying, I bought it 3 months ago. I was trying to reinstall drivers/system etc. It started to happening after few weeks of perfect work. Its not overheating because it not going over 55C (in FurMark it was ~70C but it was stable and there were not "sparkling" pixels")
Looks like i have to use my warranty :/

It's probably drivers. There are quite a few games that are showing artifacts on recent drivers. If it is only a couple of games I wouldn't worry about it too much. Run OCCT with error checking for a few minutes and see if there are any errors and if not try another driver.
