Windows 7: Peculiar behavior. HIS Radeon 270X

02 Dec 2014   #1

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Peculiar behavior. HIS Radeon 270X

So if anyone has ever seen my previous Posts I was having issues with a Gigabyte 650ti boost.R1 Long story short I finally got them to Replace it and that one was bad. So the fact of the matter that particular revision i can only imagine was a lemon and I spent 250 on trash. Got me this HIS 270X my problems ALL went away the moment I put it in.

Recently though I've been noticing every now and then I right click and select something and whatever I selected stays on screen. It's only apparently on the desktop. When I switch to a game or something and exit back out It still persists inside the windows 7 environment. Refreshing the screen does nothing to remove it.

What will fix it is changing the screen resolution to something else and reverting it back. But I have to keep doing it without resetting it. Whats even stranger, If I don't rever and leave said (artifact?) on screen It won't do it again. If I reset the resolution. It will do it again. Once I reboot the machine I have no issues for about a day or 2. It's not so serious that it is interrupting Gameplay or killing my machine but I am curious if anyone has experienced this before? My first thoughts are drivers.

You should check your Catalyst version. The current stable one in 14.9, but AMD has posted a 14.11.2 Beta set you could try.
