I just recently had my graphics card replaced with a Radeon HD 6670, and I've installed the most recent drivers for it (version 13.4). However while running Starcraft 2, I've periodically (with no consistency) come across an issue where the screen will turn black (or on rare occasions fill with lines of a single color) for around 5 seconds, flicker to the desktop, then back into the game and continue as normal.

I've read a few things and one solution seems to mention disabling the Catalyst A.I., which I can't seem to locate in the Control Center. I'm not sure if that's the solution but if it is, where is this checkbox that I keep seeing mentioned?


Here's some of the requested information:

Graphics Chipset: AMD Radeon HD 6670

Catalyst Version: 13.4

OS: Windows 7 64bit, Service Pack 1

Processor: Intel Core i5 CPU, 650 @ 3.2GHz

Ram: 8.00 GB

I have 3 computers HD 4870, HD 7850 and HD 7870 XT all with different driver Catalyst versions and different settings, and they all play nicely with this game.

Therefore, I would first check general system stability. Check temps, power supply model and specs.

If nothing seems wrong I would then try to uninstall catalyst and install a slightly earlier version, and then see what's up.
