Default HD6850 crashing..

I built a new computer yesterday with following specs:

GPU: HD 6850
CPU: intel i3-2100 (3.1GHz)
RAM: 4gb fatal1ty Ram
PSU: 850W OCZ
HDD: OCZ Agility 3 (SSD) + 2x 1TB WD


In the beggining there was no problem, but then the graphic card started crashing during Skyrim play and i got the following error in the task bar: "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered"

First i thought it was overheating, but the cpu temp is 40 celsius and gpu is around the same.
I reinstalled drivers without any luck, tried older drivers without luck.

Then it also started crashing outside game, like in desktop and in web browser. Then it totally froze and i had to hard-restart.

Then someone told me that the sandforce based SSD's had some firmware problems that could lead to computer crashes. So i removed the SSD and installed windows on a mechanical disk. Still the same problem.

But it hasn't frozen outside game this time (yet)




What else can it be? :s

Please, stop this menace.... Had to ask this for the last 3 threads...

List the model of your PSU. That can tell us if it may be a faulty PSU.

Could be that the SSD is bad. If you reinstalled and the problem still remains, it isn't your OS.

Try running diagnisic tests. With Seatools or similar.

GPU is usually 70-75C on max. CPU is normally around 65C.

What temperature software are you running? Might want to show us a screenshot of HWMonitor.

I can do a test in OCCT or something, whatever you wanna see.

Just tell me what to test for

Ok, i'll start Hw monitor before i play, and then I will play skyrim until it crashes again, then we'll see...

well... having a hard time record it, cause now the computer has started to freeze completely.

I have done som recordings in OCCT, GPU did not show any errors, but CPU and GPU did.

I dont know how to read the results, but there was one pic that had different values over the testing time: ImageShack® - Online Photo and Video Hosting

Show us a screenshot of HWMonitor, on stock. So we can look at PSU voltages. Might be your PSU acting up.
