Hi,

I have a 6970 about a year and a half old, that functions fine in general with even demanding games running smoothly and without too much heat produced. However in specific applications, for example Spotify and the game 'The Stanley Parable' I get strange black squares in a checker pattern across the screen, although usually only the bottom half. They flicker in and out and aren't always whole squares. I am positive this is the card and not my OS as I have completely reinstalled Windows 7 and it still happens, I have tried old and new drivers, I have tried over and undervolting the card and turning the clock speed down, and fans up. Strangely this only happens in Windows, not Ubuntu or BackTrack. This completely flummoxes me and maybe it could be software related? This problem has been going on for quite a while and it is incredibly annoying, not entirely sure when it started but at least 6 months ago. The forum won't let me upload photos so here is a link to two screenshots as examples of the problem: http://imgur.com/a/K2Pkr

Thanks,
