Windows 7: PowerColor Radeon HD 4890 (DVI) Static on Screen?

PowerColor Radeon HD 4890 (DVI) Static on Screen?

I booted Windows 7 a few minutes ago, and saw what made me think something might have happened relating to my graphics card. Right before the log-on screen came up, I saw a lot of flickering/static, which I thought was REALLY odd because the PC is connected to the monitor with a digital signal (DVI). The computer froze, at this point and I had to reboot. I'm posting from the same PC, so needless to say the reboot worked but I'm just a bit worried...

It could be a loose connection or the card not booting up properly. Check the Fan on the card ensure its moving.

That is strange it sounds like a cable problem short of the freeze, which indicates hardware or driver issue.

You may want to put the card through a stress test using a benchmark tool or something to make sure it's not dying on you.

I'd recommend furmark for video stress testing, cooked my card good and proper
