ATI HD 5670 Problems

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Ok guys, I have an HD5670 that's not working when it's in my computer.

I just started using it today in my computer, before, I was using a NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS (yeah noob card). After having my computer running for like 4-5 hours, it starts auto-rebooting. I have NO idea why but it's cuz of the card, I know it for sure. Right now I'm using the NVIDIA card again, and hey, no problems!

My friend said that it's PSU failure, but to be sure he told me to post here. Anyone got help?

My build:
Windows XP SP3
AMD Phenom II x4 955 Black Edition
PowerColor ATI HD5670 1GB DDR5 RAM
Diablotek PSDA600W
ASUS M4A77T/USB3
4GB DDR3 RAM
Corsair CWCH50-1 Cooler

I really appreciate it, thanks guys!

It is more than likely your PSU, if you get a flashlight and look in the back of your PSU, you will find a hamster wheel and more than likely, a dead hamster. Viva Diablotek . . . . .in hell.


Seriously though, that brand is crap. You do realize that thing doesn't even make 300 watts? At least most of the Diablotek PSU's that Johnny Guru has reviewed don't get anywhere near the advertised wattage.

Agreed. Diablotek is terrible for PSUs. The low cost is just appealing to users on a budget. Hell the Corsair 430w does better than that thing, then again that's not saying much... XD

Okay, so far 3 ppl say PSU. And personally, I thought there was a power problem too, cuz the NVIDIA card uses so little power.

Well, what power supply should I get now? I can't get anything too too expensive now cuz the graphics card itself was already a hassle to deal with (had to RMA it cuz the heatsink was broken, luckily got a free replacement but wasted so much time there).

Yes.
Excellent PSU, I used it for my client build and have had no problems.

If it's a software-related issue, are you sure you cleanly removed all Nvidia drivers? I had an auto-reboot issue when I put an ATI card in a system with Nvidia drivers.

Yup, everything was cleaned out.

Keep sending your recommendations guys! (Currently, the Corsair one seems to be getting most approval out of you guys)

Indeed, the Corsair unit is excellent.
Corsair is a respected name in computer hardware anyways.

If you're looking for an alternative to Corsair, some Seasonic units are excellent too.

I happened to be on the page with that PSU at that moment actually. The Antec unit would suffice just as well. ^^ Either or really.
