Radeon 5870 randomly flickers sometimes in games...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I bought a sapphire radeon 5870 2GB eyefinity 6 edition GPU on newegg when it was on sale for 200 bucks.

i don't use eyefinity though btw. I installed the latest display drivers and it runs games well but there's this flickering effect I'm seeing. When I put my 460 768mb back in the flickering went away.

Anything I can do about this?

Did you make sure that you completely removed the Nvidia drivers before installing the ATI drivers? You need to uninstall all previous drivers completely using Driver Sweeper in Safe Mode, then install the new ones; otherwise there are potential issue with driver conflicts. Just a thought

Tried getting rid of pretty much every remnant of nvidia drivers. Reinstalled latest 5870 drivers. Still getting flickering. Maybe i got a defective unit?
