I'm going to move the card to a different PCI-e slot and see if that changes anything.
Good troubleshooting step to find out if it is the slot on the motherboard that is bad. Let us know the results.

The other PCI-e slot caused the same crash. I'll be picking up a new card today and trying that out, I'll post the results later.

Sounds good. Best wishes that solves it.

Looking good so far, I'm running Dead Island and changing streamed videos like crazy with no crashes yet; normally I'd be in the middle of a restart by now.

I guess my next step is to get a new card through AMD's warranty.


Here's something curious though; the new HD 6850 I picked up has one 6 pin power connector, whereas the old one has two 6 pin connectors. Is it normal for a card's design to change like that during its lifetime?

As with all technology, designs can change quite a bit as companies learn better methods of manufacturing and find simpler methods of fabrication/design. Simpler is always better because there are less chances of things going wrong. The more testing is done on a product, the more feedback companies get, and that feedback will go into redesigning components to work better.

In short, yes, it is normal for a card's design to change during its lifetime, and some of those changes can be fairly drastic.

Forgot to mention that designs can also change to keep up with current technology. The card may have been redesigned in part due to what motherboards are capable of accepting and handling from the hardware peripherals.

Cool. Thanks for all the help, I think we're safe to mark this as resolved. I was hoping it would be as simple as "uninstall X, it's screwing everything up" but such is life haha.

Thanks for your time and patience Writhziden (also Panais), I really appreciate it. I'm going to change the thread title to get that tcpip.sys out of there since it actually had nothing to do with the issue; no need for people with that issue to find this while Google searching.
