White dots, and blue lines?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Unlocked the shaders on my 6950's yesterday and started playing around with over clocks, trial and error. I used MSI afterburner to watch my temps and they never got higher than 70, but now today I was experiencing some clusters of white dots while playing metro 2033, and some blue lines on occasion.
After seeing that I set all my clocks, and memory back to defaults, but I am still seeing them...
Does anyone have any ideas how to fix this?

lower your clocks, get better cooling, or try to increase voltage.

artifacts just mean it is not stable.

If you have already put clocks back to default and still getting this try to flash back to 6950 bios,if its still doing it then i would RMA them.Also did you set the power option in CCC to +20%?As this needs to be done when flashing to 6970 bios.Or you could try the modified 6950 bios instead.

It still is the 6950 bios, just unlocked shaders.
How can I get restore the original bios?
In CCC I originally set power option to +12% but then I set it back to 0% when I set clocks and such back to defaults.

XFX probably have the BIOS to download on their site,maybe even a newer version.I'd try that and if no joy i would RMA them,its not like you have gone crazy on these cards.

If i find a bios, do I install it the same way I did to unlock the shaders?

Do you have a bios switch, if so flip to number two(#2) and reboot. You can use the TPU bios collection to find a bios, but if you have a bios switch use the failsafe #2, that's the stock bios!

As far as i'm aware you would do it the same way yes.However i dont own one.There is a thread on here for 6950 card unlocking which you should be able to get better information from.As tsm said try the other BIOS if you have 2,if its still acting crazy on that one i'd RMA it personally.XFX have good customer service so should'nt be a problem.
