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.
