Windows 7: Suddenly cannot play games on Radeon HD 6850

7 ultimate x64

I had a 4870 until last year, I had made two simple profiles in CCC itself "game" & "idle" with fixed fan speeds so as to not be dependent on the terrible auto-speed which used to make my card run at almost 80 degrees while gaming. Do something like that when you get a replacement or if your card works again.

Likely that the card had problems with temperatures due to prolonged use. Try it in another PC if possible.
I can't do that. but I can swap in my old Gfx card for a moment to see if I run into the same problems. I'll report back momentarily. Until then, I guess I'll assume the worse and see how I'd go about RMAing the card...
So, it's definitely the card.I've contacted PowerColor about getting a new one. I guess I can consider this issue resolved. Still a little bitter, though :P

Sounds suddenly stops when I play mp3s/online games
I don't know what caused this; the sounds(in my headset) suddenly stop then resume again. I'm sure that it isn't caused by lag or other internet related issues, I'm using the same headset after my computer has been replaced entirely and my past OS is WinXP. But my speaker works fine and doesn't...
