I changed my gpu from a GTX460 to a HD6950 in the last 2 days and was greeted with the freeze or lockup of death!
Nothing has changed bar the gpu and i was able to have AB and everyother program i wanted on my second monitor without any issue at all.
I used to have AB, coretemp, realtemp, gpuz, cpuid, msn, steam friends etc etc no problem and with a heavy oc through afterburner.
Now my second screen is blank .... with this ati card
No freezes as yet... have gamed for abit over an hr so far as before i would get no more than 30min in and bam! Lockup which needed manual reset.
My specs... 2500K@4.5-asrock ext6-gskill 4gig ram, seagate 1tb hdd, Tt 750w.
Only my second ati card so far and have not been impressed by the issues wether they are related or not... my other card was a HD4870X2 which seemed to be stuck on 10.4's / 5's everything else was broke.
Oh well ... just never had any issues at all with nvidia from 5200 onwards.
Hope they get a fix soon before i crack the poo's and go back to green.
P.S. i did try alot of drivers ati and realtek drivers, re-installing steam bc2 etc etc... just seems i cant have any monitoring programs open and have deleted AB.Edited by Chicken_Lover - 4/30/11 at 12:45am
