Ever since I bouight this 5850, it has been a mess. I've had issues with it since the beginning, but right now is the worst. I can't even turn my computer on anymore.
The current problem is this: My 5850 was having lots of issues. The screen would go black and the picture would never return despite my Monitor light still telling me there was a connection. In addition I would get constant flickering and screen flashes. I tried cleaning out my computer, swapping the GPU to another port thing, reinstalling the current driver, running scans/defrags/registry cleans/etc, increasing the fan power, etc. I recently tried reverting back to an older version of Catalyst, I think 10 (I can't check since my computer wont even work...) and apparently that messed up everything. Now when I turn my computer on, it says to run startup repair. And then everytime after, the screen just goes black. Any subsequent attempts doesn't even give me a connection to the GPU/Monitor, the screen is black and the monitor light lets me know there is no input. My computer is literally useless right now.
Please, try to help me . I want to like AMD/ATI, but ***** like this is just stupid.
