Wish that was the case for most of us. The method posted above gets my XFX HD 5770 working with no problems whatsoever. For what ever reason there are those of us that need to bump the gpu up a bit to stablize things.

This has helped solve my problems with the "display driver stopped working and has recovered" notice, where sometimes my mouse would freeze, then the system would freeze if it did not recover.

So far so good; am giving it a week to make sure.

Thanks, JaSOSx86.

I'm having trouble with my Asus Radeon HD 5770 card, too, which is why I joined up here.

For some reason, after I installed it my keyboard and mouse will stop working whenever the computer has to think too hard. If I move my mouse around too quickly, if I have a few tabs loading in Firefox, or just whenever.

Also, it's begun to show some performance issues when I play Prototype. Yesterday, after I installed the card, Prototype ran like butter with beautiful sparkling graphics, but the keyboard and mouse would just stop working. Today when I was playing, the keyboard and mouse didn't lock up nearly as often, but the video was choppy and kept slowing down.

Do you guys think it's a driver issue, or did I just get a bad card?

The keyboard and mouse are wireless. I know that most gamers prefer a wired desktop, but the wireless setup I have has never given me any problems in games before.

At the moment I've pulled the card out of my system until my day off, when I'll have more time to mess around with it.

Thanks for the suggestion about using a different version of Catalyst, I'll give that a try.

Also, my buddy suggested I download DirectX 11 after I put the card back in, so I'll be giving that a shot as well.

I'll keep you updated as the saga continues!

Hey folks, I'm finally back after a long, bizarre ordeal, and I've solved the problem I was having with my 5770.

After talking to a kindly old man who'd been building computers since before I was born, I decided that the big issue was heat and poor air circulation inside the case. Using the overclocking tool that came with the card, I cranked up the fan to blow at 97% capacity all the time after carefully tucking away all the extra wires. Lo and behold, everything runs like a champ and I finally get to enjoy the glorious power of this card.

Thanks to everybody for their help, and remember, it's not always a driver issue.

Have a great day, everyone!

That's awesome that the solution worked for you. I actually tried the same thing, although running the fan at 80% instead of 97%. Definitely did not help. I've tried so many solutions that I don't know what's actually making a difference anymore.
  • Catalyst 10.7 drivers did not help.
  • Running the cards in crossfire is MAD unstable.
  • Running the cards 1 at a time is much better, although one card has artifacting going on (bad VRAM?). The other was working fine until last night, when it started crashing upon loading a level in COD:MW2.
  • Switched back to the artifacting card, which isn't crashing at the moment...
Also, when I was running the cards in crossfire, I noticed that Crysis: Warhead would crash instantly if started in fullscreen mode, but if I played it in a window, it was fine. Anyone know why that is?

I'm going to try the method above for creating a profile and then manually editing the values. Hopefully that will make some improvement. Still waiting to hear back from XFX support, as well.

I've also heard that the 64-bit version of windows (or maybe just the 64-bit catalyst drivers) is to blame, and if you switch to the 32-bit version, your problems will go away. I don't want to do this, though, because then I won't be able to use all 4gb of RAM in my system.

Switching of clocks

I have a HIS HD5750 card. And had same problems that people have with the 5770 card.

From His i did get the following suggestion.

Enable Overdrive in the CCC and set the slider of the memory clock slightly. May be to increase by 5Mhz. Click Apply. This will disable the switching of clocks.

PS, on my motherboard I had to change the Mhz on the PSIe2 slots.

If I understand correctly, you're saying this will prevent the card from switching into 2D mode?

Maybe it's a noob question, but what do you mean by this?
