Blue Screen 2-3 Times A Day While Playing Video Files (Ati Radeon 3870)

Richie R. I do not know what is the exact problem; maybe ATI (AMD) did some changes in the driver what isn't good for older cards.

It helped a while to clean the fins. I have an early 2006 Mac Pro with 12 gigs of ram and x1900 video card. I used to swear by ATI cards but sadly I wouldn’t buy one now or recommend one. I don't know what else to say except that I will comment once I have re-installed WinXP, because im getting to the end of my tether with this. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/247483-33-radeon-3870-crashing

Will let everyone know whether or not these newest drivers have the same bug or not. Symptoms: screen and mouse frozen, keyboard doesn't work, and whatever audio was playing gets stuck on a short endless loop (sounds like a machine gun). Oh, the system also has in it a WinFast TV Tuner card, a soundblaster live! 5.1 audio card (which was hell trying to find drivers for, since the website says the

All of this indicates a temperature problem with either GFX, NB or a combo of both. I swapped the VGA to DVI (I knew this wasn't the issue, but for the sake of things thought I would mention it). Is a Geforce 8800GT a good alternative? As this isn't a very new game any more I only tested at the highest resolution possible for me: at 1920x1200.

Even though we only paid like 45 bucks for the card, I am not fond of having to RMA it, if it is even eligible (since the ATI/AMD site says system Is this fourm monitored by Microsoft peoplethat can see there is a pattern here? After some driver update I kept getting the BSODs as well. http://newwikipost.org/topic/ImR07B3ucmQlqOweA4QMCw7pTpkR1olo/ATI-Radeon-and-green-screen-with-DVR-MS-files.html SO - does the 1GB ATI RADEON HD4870 - at £100 from Pixmania - work in the mac pro or not?

The machine in question is Mac Pro 1,1 quad core (2 x 2.66 dual core) - original video card was (and is again, until I get a replacement) a GeForce 7300GT. I'll make up my own mind.

Sgt Jigglebelly12-02-2009, 11:42 PMgame worked fine until today, and i guess the latest update - now i crash right after the first loading screen (the one right after the intro cinematic) By deleting the file, my color depth is down to 4-bits, and my pixel resolution shows up as 1×1, lol. I also got the VisionTek and basically, if I can't even run stock, I really need to RMA this sucker.

Not sure of other specs on it, had the computer apart so much lately I don't feel like opening it again to check. weblink This is just to cure my own curiosity. How many buttons? 3?

  3. I haven't tried re-installing the driveres yet and I'll try that recommendation next.

Mike Posted July 6, 2011 at 12:22 | Permalink …oh you're right, and that's irritating, but Oct 2009 was only just over 18 months ago, and Apple dont charge £120 for I have atleast had good luck with those. PS. navigate here I did everything to the letter but after restarting the system it just came up with blank screen(s) on all ports.

Warranty? Guess what Apple charges for the X1900 XT here in Sweden? $550! It really not a buzz, but that is the only word i can think of.On the other hand, with stock fans, my 3870 runs 78c at load, but it never locks

Some games may pop up with a warning screen stating your video card drivers may be out of date, but I'd just ignore it beings I'm able to run StarCraft 3,

No I believe everyone should have a chance to play a game they paid for on the appropriate system. My lock up had a loud, low tone, low frequency buzz. knoc12-01-2009, 07:46 AMcouple days ago my brother was randomly ctd, after intro and he has the gf 260, i on the other hand never expierienced this, he owns the game, not Hades42511-30-2009, 04:03 AMVoice chat crashes the game, when I don't use it, it's fine =_= Montylol11-30-2009, 04:41 AMValve supprt f.u.c.king blows, first it took them 2 weeks to reply to me

i Realised that it has something to do with layers and overlays and partial transpariencies. Your OCZ 600 W PSU is plenty for your system ( pretty sure the 512MB version X1950 Pro drew more power than the 3870) and you shouldn't have to change any cant believe apple want £286 for the 4870 yet the xfx pc equivalent is £100 on overclockers.co.uk i really do hope apple make the ati 5000 series graphics cards (the ones his comment is here Avi or Streaming !!!

Some say the 3870 uses more power than the 8800 under load (revisiting-the-power-consumption-of-the-ati-radeon-hd-3800-series (Ars), http://www.anandtech.com/video/showdoc.aspx?i=3151&p=11 - Some say it uses less power than the 8800 under load http://www.techreport.com/articles.x/13603/9, http://www.techspot.com/review/76-asus-radeon-hd-3870/page8.html)" And there's Rickard Posted February 5, 2012 at 13:59 | Permalink Flash: We're quite aware of that. I removed these instances with the help of ccleaner. Why did Valve sell out on us?

First time I got BSOD after few minutes, second time I got CTD and third time again BSOD. In-game or intro crash? I've tried updating bios drivers, graphics drivers, reinstalling windows, all I've done is succeeded in adding this blue screen error every time I boot windows to the list of problems. I was playing spider solitaire and using itunes when all of a sudden I got that blue screen.
