Windows 7: Something is seriously jacked up with my video

That guy had a similar problem and apparently the fix provided worked for him.
It's the only suggestion I have right now. He wasn't complaining of image corruption but it was the same blue screen.
I hope it is just a driver issue, it will save you a lot of trouble.

I just kind of ignored it for a while, but it's still not working. I still get corruption in game and on desktop. Occasionally my screen will freeze, turn black, then come back and a little message near the clock will say that the driver stopped working and recovered.

I've tried 10.5 drivers and even 10.1 and it won't work.

you could try manually updating the .net framework on your system. I know ati and nvidia drivers both use it. Though in what way exactly I don't know.
You can also grab up the latest direct x redistributable and install that.
The only other thing that occurs to me is that the power supply could be failing and when it sends the incorrect power to the card the result is a driver based crash.

So what about something along the lines of:

Backing up some crucial stuff on my computer to external and completely reinstalling Windows, along with formatting the hard drive during installation. (again -.-). Then install latest version of just about every driver possible, the direct x stuff, all Windows 7 updates, the whole shebang.

Then see if anything works then?


Also I had another idea. I could do the above stuff, but I know where I can get my hands on an Nvidia 9500GT, could I potentially drop that in there and try out my games and stuff to see if it's a problem with the cards? Then I can also try out that other monitor/cable I got and try that? Then if it's not that, could I assume it's a problem with my power supply?

Infact, what about not bothering with the 9500GT (its a computer that I built for my grandmother, and I'd like to not bother her) and just take out the 5970 and use the onboard graphics?

Or maybe it's a conflict between the 5970 and the onboard graphics I have?

So many questions, the same problem, and no answers

Actually yes, looking back at your original pics it may be burned out ram on the card. So if you have another graphics card handy I would suggest that path first.
You should be able to manually disable the onboard graphics in the bios. You want it completely out of the equation.

If that's not already the case give that a go.
