Hopefully. I got in contact with the people who built and will replace it if the card is malfunctioning. However no signs that it is broke. So alls good.

Nope. No such luck. Same thing happened, while I was playing a game the screen froze and clusters of small red dots appeared across the screen. However it recovered and the artifacts disappear. What does this mean, does it mean it's about to fail or it's simply just broke?

3 posts in one go? What is this madness. Anywho, after doing a bit of rooting around in the depths of google. I came across a thread on this forum that proclaimed a solution, with this card in mind. It also matches what I have been doing; it claims that letting your computer turn of the display is not supported by the card and is causing the card to stop responding during the session in which the screen turned off. After reflecting, every time my computer did turn the screen off. Shortly after, if I was doing something demanding the card crashed and then recovered.

Edit: After doing more research into the matter, some people are claiming that windows, when it turns the screen off, cuts out too much power. So the card does not have enough power to operate.

However, I highly doubt that this could be the case. Does anyone know if this could be true? As I would rather not have to go though all the fuss of sending the card back and getting a new one.

Get a new one. In the long run it'd be better.

I have concluded that the screen turning off problem, is what caused my card to malfunction. After a full days worth of use, the problem did not occur once.

So what setting(s) did you adjust exactly?

What is turning the monitor off? A screen saver, sleep or hibernation mode? As I previously said I have two 7700's and I do not have any problems like this went recovering from screen saver or sleep mode.

What are the gpu temps when the gpu crashes? What is your gpu fan profile? Try cranking up the fan speed. You want full fan rpm by 60*C. MSI's "After Burner" program is great for working with the HD7700's.

Problem still exists. I have contacted the company who built it and I will be sending the card to them, however at the moment I can send it to them until 2 weeks. As I am going on a short holiday, so as to prevent anymore damage to the card. I went into the Bios to switch to the onboard graphics, however this seemed quite stupid due to the fact that I am use to Dell motherboards and their bios. So I don't know what I am doing, does anyone how to switch the primary graphics card with the motherboard: Asus M5A78L-M

Also the idle temp of the graphics card is 47C, while gaming it peaks up to 60C. While the fan speed is only at 37% all the time.
