First post so please be gentle
Being a proud owner of 2X GTX460 in sli, I got my hands on a Radeon 7950 3GB. The card generally works fine but an issue is driving me crazy.
After leaving the pc idle for some time (eg 20 minutes) it crashes. No BSOD, I just hear a beep (like the one when it reboots), blank screen and it is stuck. To restart it I need to power cycle. And obviously it is the 7950.
Everything else is fine, I mean standby and resume are fine, games are fine, temps are fine, it is just this thing that it does EVERY time. If I forget to shut it down or put it in standby/sleep it crashes. It never happens when I'm doing something, eg browsing, only when I'm away from it...
The only thing I have found in forums is to disable ULPS in registry which I have in every instance I could find it with no results....
