Hy. For some reason I experienced some freezes with my current system and tried to find out which could be the main reason. Freezes appeared only while playing games or rendering some of my projects in Autodesk Showcase. Tested :

- RAM with memtest86 - Passed

- CPU with intel diagnostic tool 64 bit - Passed

- GPU with furmark - freezes after 8-10 seconds (tried twice). It's temperature ~ 40 degrees.

 

My system :

CPU - Intel Core i7 4770 (35 degrees temperature).

Mobo - Asus H87 Pro

RAM - Corsair Vengeance 8Gb (4+4)

GPU - Sapphire 5770 1GB

PSU - Seasonic 620W

 

Could be the driver or it's a hardware failure ? Currently have installed the latest catalyst driver..

Thanks for all your suggestions!

Tried also with an older driver (13.9) and gives me now "display driver stopped responding and has successfully recovered".. :/

try to underclock your GPU, see if the probem persists. you should be able to change the clock rate using catalyst control center.

sounds to me like a driver issue; however, could be a power issue. Check to make sure your card is getting enough juice

Got that on and off for a few weeks before my card (nvidia card though) finally gave up with the usual distorted text/colours and obvious failure symptoms.

I would say driver or overheating.. Do you have a spare video card to test with?

Never overclocked it..but even if would work..which would be the reason ?

 

 

Well .. I have the one from CPU (Intel Core i7 4770) integrated.. but should I test this Radeon on another system with furmark for full verdict? So symptoms are clear.. freezes under stress (showcase rendering/gaming etc).

Also tried it on showcase without any driver installed and haven't had problems..sure..will performance dropped a lot.

Your card is definitely bad. Just RMA it and try to advance replace it if you can
