Windows 7: Suddenly cannot play games on Radeon HD 6850

I had a 4870 until last year, I had made two simple profiles in CCC itself "game" & "idle" with fixed fan speeds so as to not be dependent on the terrible auto-speed which used to make my card run at almost 80 degrees while gaming. Do something like that when you get a replacement or if your card works again.

Likely that the card had problems with temperatures due to prolonged use. Try it in another PC if possible.
I can't do that. but I can swap in my old Gfx card for a moment to see if I run into the same problems. I'll report back momentarily. Until then, I guess I'll assume the worse and see how I'd go about RMAing the card...
So, it's definitely the card.I've contacted PowerColor about getting a new one. I guess I can consider this issue resolved. Still a little bitter, though :P
