I am a looking at your sig rig...I am noticing that you are using windows xp professional...which only allows you to use DX9 instead of DX11 that the 6850 can use....Not sure what gigabtye mobo you are using but might be something in the mobo bios that needs to be updated....I recall certain Asus AMD boards bios needed recognize and use the 5800 series...you might want to also look into that...

Indeed, could be nice if he'd eplained this.

Sorry for bumping, but there can only be two things.

The drivers are messed up
The card is damaged

If you said you got a new one, then, its merely impossible to get a bad card twice, unless you have really bad luck. Well, I guess you should try the method that fixed my problem.

Return the card (apparently you already did, so skip that), get a replacement, now... Before you plug your card into the PC, use the old card, and wipe all drivers. Wipe everything, then use driver sweeper and wipe everything through there. Reboot, go to safe mode, and use driver sweeper again. Turn off your computer, plug the new card in, take out the old one. Getting the latest drivers from the amd site isn't always the solution, since I had to install from the CD to make my card work properly, so I recommend you do same. It should work flawlessly now, unless the card is actually damaged. Oh, and yeah, you should switch to windows 7 if you're getting a card like that. Less problems and smoother performance.

For as long as I can remember, using programs like driver sweeper and crap cleaner make the ATi drivers not work correctly.

The only correct way to install or reinstall drivers is to use the provided uninstaller, or to just reinstall the drivers without uninstalling the old ones. People's obsession with "completely uninstalling" the old drivers is probably the number one reason everyone thinks ATi drivers are bad.

Anyways to the OP, is there anything else you've done to your PC recently, besides the video card?

That is an extremely outdated version of driver sweeper. Like 2009.

Just reformatted my pc, still getting the problem, extremely low fps in games and crashing. I just checked and my bios hasn't been updated since march 2010. Should I try updating my bios?
