the HD 5570 came stock in my Gateway DX4320-09. Been used for approximately 2-3 years for plenty of gaming.
Had put off updating drivers at all as all games still played well at nearly max settings. With the arrival of Bioshock Infinite i decided why not and began downloading the new drivers. At approximately 80% installation of optimal drivers PC is forced to an extremely low resolution, black screens, then blue screens.
In order to regain basic functionality I used F8 on start-up to select "low-res" mode. Otherwise monitor displayed "Input not supported"
After safe start in low res I was able to up the res back to 1600x1200 although no games are runnable, Windows 7 Aero is disabled, and the problem re-occurs when trying to install drivers.
Is it safe to assume the card is fried? (and so might as well try baking it)
Or is this a driver issue?
