Im sorry if i posted in the wrong section, but i couldn't find a section for my card (below 5000)
I have an Ati Radeon HD 4870x2 graphic card. I have this card for about 3-4 years now i think. The card has been working awesome, i really love it. But since a week im having problems with it.
The first problem i had was that i wanted to boot my pc and my fans were running at 100%, maybe 1000% because it was almost a tropical storm in my room. (I have an antec twelve hundred case) I had no idea what was going, i thought the fans went nuts because it was pretty hot in my room. But my screen didnt turn on and was black. I toggled my pc off and tried again but nothing changed. I repeated this a few times and then i noticed some red leds on my video card. I saw 4 of them and only the left one was off. I never saw that before so i immediatly knew that was not good. I googled a bit and found out it has something to do with the power. I have an antec truepower quattro 850 watt power supply.
The next day i cleaned my pc completely with compressed air sprays because i thought it was some dust which caused the problem. I toggled my card off and cleaned it good but carefull. Placed it back and my pc worked again. The next day however, my pc did the same. Fans at 1000%, black screen and red leds. But now only the right 3. I shut down my pc, opened my pc, unplugged the cables from my card and put it back. And my pc booted up again. But only 1 red led apears now after a few minutes. This led is burning : (R323) which means according to the internet : GPU-1 (Master) No power. When my pc goes 1000% fan mode this led is sometimes not for 100% on, but more like 50%. And the other leds at the right are also on then. While im typing this and checking for the nr on the led, i touched my card and almost burned my hand. Im only running this browser and my card is 87 degrees with 0% activity. This is also not good i think. I thought i was running the latest CCC driver, but im running 12.6. I downloaded 13.1, but wont update it yet, because i prefer waiting for a reply first.
I also had a BSOD yesterday with an atikmpag.sys error. Dont know if that has something to do with it.
I hope someone can help me out sort this problem,
