Windows 7: Issue with HD 6850

Is there anything else I could try or is the ram thing the only option? How do I remove the ram and what am I looking for after I do remove it?

My advice is to take it to someone who can check it out and fix it for you.
If you don't know what you are doing or looking for you could raise havoc with your computer.
Don't feel bad because we have been there. Just giving you some common sense advice.

Well how could the ram be the problem here? I have been browsing the web a bit and several people have posted threads about the possibility of the new Catalyst Control Center + Flash might be the cause of this as they have reported the same issue but with different graphics cards?

Here is some error reports from my event logs:

Quote:
Display driver amdkmdap stopped responding and has successfully recovered.
Quote:
The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x00000116 (0xfffffa800ad6e4e0, 0xfffff88003f7c008, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000002). A dump was saved in: C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP. Report Id: 121510-17877-01.
I mean I can take it up there again its just 20 min trips each way and these "stopped responding" messages are rather random I had been playing for several hours off and on today for 5-6 hours without a problem and then all of a sudden within an hour period it stopped responding 3 times.


The guy who I ordered it from says he knows someone with the exact same issue I am having but with the 5770 and doesn't know what the problem is so I dont know how much help he would be in the first place.

I forgot to mention earlier I had a different graphics card for over 2 months with this exact same set-up and I never had any problems at all the only thing I swapped out 2 days ago was the graphics card and my power supply.

well did you do a full driver uninstall if not that may be where the problem is

i agree to this.....you have to uninstall the drivers, restart in safe mode run driver sweeper, removes all the bits of you old graphic card and then resinstall the latest drivers. if this does not resolve it, then i would suggest to remove the RAM and run the PC on single channel (one DIMM only). At last if all this does not resolve, try to install windows again..............i have 5670 1 GB and had same issue, i did all mentioned above and now i am a happy gamer.
