A lot of manufacturers sell overclocked items, they just need to make sure they're stable before mass producing them. Bottom line is any item can fail.

As far as "turning off Overclocking"... if the card came overclocked, that is the "default" condition the card is intended to operate at. Thus turning off the overclocked condition (lowering the clock speeds) would "technically" be running counter to what the manufacturer intended, and could "technically" void the warranty.

I’ve had a non-overclocked card overheat and go bad on me, thus my experience with the display driver stopped responding issue.

It happens.

I would suggest you call the manufacturer, tell them your situation, and see about getting a replacement card.

My two cents.

Your PSU does not seem to be the cause of this problem but rather your graphics card

That power supply is way more than enough to power your system, let alone your video card. In short, unless the power supply is faulty, you have more than enough power. And the symptons you describe doesn't sound like a power supply issue.

But if the power supply was faulty wouldn't it not work at all or atleast not last a week. but you can never have to much power if it goes in right?

To clearify.... your power supply is not the problem

Ah I must add that watching all movies I don't get a single jump or crash, just in games only, so I guess some thing is over heating like yowanvista said about the graphics card it will be the 1st thing I get my family member that built it to look at when he gets time, also i'd like to add I used to use 2my tv + monitor but been useing just my monitor the past 2 days so that couldn't be it also because when I used to start up the pc the graphics would go in a zig zag but that stoped after a while

Success!!!

Contacted my family member and he told me to uninstall the CCC and install the one from the disk (windows update one didnt run well) and also sent me this

" go into the CCC (catalyst control centre) and go into Overdrive . it's in the tab in the top left hand corner. unlock the box so you can change increase the idle mhz. these 5 series cards have an idel speed of 157/300 (which is way to slow to run 3d apps) . it's low because of some software with ati that is meant to save power but it interferes with with a TDR thing which power downs the vga. move the sliders around until the mhz show something around 400/1200! i've run max reso games and no crashes "

NO more jumps NO more crashes and i'd like to thank every one that took time to help also but its fixed now thanks to the family member, such a relief

hope he told you never, ever, ever install video card updates from Windows Update and if you need to update to only get them straight from AMD/ATI.

If you're satisfied, that's cool, but....

Edit, actually you're overclocking the card slighty, which will create even more heat. That's an Interesting solution

BTW....always get your drivers from here... ATI Video Card Drivers

As for that "TDR" thing.... A little reading is in order.....

- Timeout Detection and Recovery of GPUs through WDDM
- Driver Stopped Responding And Recovered!
- “Display driver stopped responding and has recovered” - Rage3D Discussion Area
