Oh hey spectre, sorry I haven't checked this board in a while. Well I haven't looked at the logfiles in some time, but I can give that a try I suppose. I used GPU-Z for checking the logged temperatures previously.

Hey ListlessSpectre,

So I haven't yet gotten around to attempting to reproduce the crashes as I've been busy with other things. But your theory sounds plausible to me, as it is consistent with the fact that my card only crashes under heavy 3d load after a sustained period of time.

Assuming that your theory is correct, and that the v-ram is getting too hot or is otherwise faulty, what do you recommend that I try? I've already removed the stock cooler and installed an aftermarket cooling system as explained in earlier posts. 

Also, do you know what my GPUz log will read in the event that the crash is in fact due to faulty/overheating v-ram?

Thanks for the feedback!

hello guys,this is a great thread to follow for such a notorious problem that many are still having.i recently opened a topic regarding the same issue but this time it's on a Asus Radeon HD7970 DC2. i have a Silverstone ST75F-G Evolution PSU (750W) and a single 7970.i'm torn between what could be the real cause and started to regret my GPU choice especially that neither AMD nor Asus are addressing this issue officially.i will try some of the solutions posted here with great appreciation for all of your efforts trying to figure out a solution.which ever works for me i'll post it here.kind regards,

 

*Update*

based on some users reports of similar experience i have de-clocked the card:

- Engine Clock from 925MHz to 900MHz

- Memory Clock from 1375MHz to 1200MHz

it seems only at these rates the card was able to maintain stability. since then i didn't experience any black or striped screens even on heavy load. if i increased these values the failure will regenerate at an early stage of a game.

i might go through tweaking the clocks incrementally to discover at what exact value the failure will regenerate.

i updated my topic wiching to know what is the impact on performance and whether i should accept it as it is or i should RMA.

Hey guys, 

i'm in trouble with my hd radeon 5850 for a while now, maybe you can help me... 

(sorry for my englisch, i'm from germany^^)

After playing games like BF3, Bioshock Infinite for like 10 - 20 Minutes, the game crushes down and my pc says "3d card X11 is not connected or crashed. Please update the drivers and start the game again."

the strange thing is, games like portal 2 or nba2k13 work without problems

 

my data:

- amd phenom II x4 955 processor

- amd radeon hd 5850

- motherboard: Asus M4A785TD-V EVO

- windows 8.1 64 bit

- don't know the names of the rest..

 

all my drivers are up to date (including bios).

the msi afterburner says, the temperatur of my GPU is 55- 62 °

Even if i reduce the graphic options in the game to "minimum", the problem appears.

Nothing is overclocked.

The cooler of the tower and the cooler of the gpu are working.

I really don't know what to do.

Thanks for your help :-) !
