Windows 7: Artifacts in post and monitor freezing with loud buzzing sound

Artifacts in post and monitor freezing with loud buzzing sound

Hello there,i really need you help !

So i bought a new graphics card,the Radeon R9 290 and i have the following problems

1)When i post up the pc instead of the BIOS image i am getting those random artifacts




2) In random times my monitor freezes with a buzzing sound coming from speakers and it wont respond until i force restart.This might happen once a day,twice a day,10 times a day or it might not happen for 2 days.It mostly happens when i am gaming or watching movie,but it also happens when i am just browsing.

I have ruled out the RAMs cause i tested them a lot,and i have also ruled out anything else related to hardware because when i am running with my old graphics card the computer runs fine without any problems.

So i decided to RMA the card.They called me after two days and asked me to go there,so i went.They told me that the card runs fine,there was no artifacts in post and no freezing when they tested 4 different benchmarks and 2 different games.So they gave me back the card.He told me that the problem could be my PSU or that i run the card with VGA to HDMI adapter(Analog to Digital).

So i really don't know what to do now,what would cause this problem ? Is it possible that cause my monitor does not have Digital input(HDMI,DVI)so i have to use VGA To HDMI adapter this could be the problem ? Or it's simply my PSU ? But if it's my PSU shouldn't i also have random restarts and other problems too ? I am really in a dead end.

My rig :

mobo : Gigabyte GA-880GA-UD3H
CPU : AMD Phenom II x6 1090T
RAM : 8 GB Corsair
PSU : Chieftec APS-650C 650W


PS.Just like 10 minutes ago i got the freezing again so i had to restard.It didnt went to windows instead it said that CHSDK(or something like that) need to check the disk for consistency,so it checked.What does this mean ?

It could be your one of your RAM that is causing artifacts on your screen. I suggest removing all of sticks of ram then put the RAM each by each.

I think it maybe because (and don't hold me to this just yet) the PCI-E lane you're using might not support the R9 290 GPU, are you using the PCI-E x16 lane? the card you have now is a PCI-E 3.0 card, your Motherboard is rated for PCI-E 2.0, however that shouldn't cause artifacting, it just lowers bandwidth that the card can use.

Yes i do use the x16 slot.About the PCI-E 3.0,i searched before buying any new card and everyone told me that PCI-E 3.0 cards are compatible to PCI-2.0 motherboards.Even the manufacturer does not specifies that PCI-E 3.0 are required.

I connected my pc to my tv with HDMI and it still crashes.I don't know,i am out of ideas.I feel like i wasted money.

It should work fine but it just lowers the bandwidth, It's definitely a problem with your setup, have you disabled the onboard GPU, might be a hybrid crossfire issue with your specific setup.

Freezing and Buzzing from monitor during gaming.
Graphics card(SAPPHIRE 7950 3GB with Boost) does not indicate any error, it never gets above 50C, there are no artifacts, and it runs smooth as butter when it works(Hitman Absolution and Shogun total war 2). CPU doesn't overheat either, my NH-D14 keeps it(3930k) cool at below 50C at all times. ...
