I'm not an expert about hardware but I doubt if u try all possible ways with the same outcome, I could be problem with the ATi card, which I mentioned earlier, can be replaced.

I don't tihnk its the card itself. I think its the drivers. Because my Stepdad uses the exact same cards, Gigabyte ATi Radeon HD5870 1GBDDR5's but in Xfire (which i doubt would make a difference) and he has the same problem with the same drivers =S

Try This: I had EXACTLY this issue and have just solved it. Regardless of information otherwise, my theory is that ATI current driver catalyst 10.6 does NOT work with Flash player 10.1 No matter whose fault this is doesnt matter.
Find and download an old version of Flash 10.0.45.2
This was tricky to find so look here - Archived Flash Player versions
i did a full uninstall of 10.1 flash - including hunting down and deleting the "Flash player" folders still hiding in Windows\System32 and SysWOW64 folders! Reboot then install Flash 10.0.45.2 and all should be sweet.

cheers

I haven't tried your method, but I actually updated the BIOS on my Graphics Card. It had an old bios or something, and so I went to the manufacturer's website and updated its bios, risking like, bricking my card, but it was alright, i updated it and it fixed everything. ^^

Thanks anyway. (:

Can a mod close this thread please? It's all good (:
