it can only be a driver or slot issue i think the latest catylist driver is now 10.5 have you tried that yet ?

I'm pretty sure it's 93% not h/ware related. It's software.

I had a spate of x116 the other day. It's the Cat driver failing to recover.

Mine was due to CCC et al becoming corrupted as well as my OC being too high with insufficient voltages.


Is your card an factory OC version?


The newer CAT drivers 2D idle clocks have been increased to 400/1000 (or 400/1250 for some) instead of 137/300. The increase in 2D clock speed may be an issue with your cards BIOS / powerplay voltage being insufficient for those clocks.




I'm sorry to say, I was lazy in this instance and instead of repairing the installation I just installed another copy of 7 with the latest CAT 10.5 and the latest MSI afterburner and between the two, haven't had a repeat performance.



However, between driver sweeper and ccleaner, you should be able to 'wipe' all ATI references and start from scratch so to speak.



Another potential cause is the .Microsoft Visual C++ 20xx redistributable versions that is installed with CCC. One of the Cat versions didn't 'properly' fix/remove and re-install the correct redistributable which can also cause issues.


(My apologies for the vagueness atm, I can't pinpoint the release - I went through a few different releases including beta and preview drivers so I can't remember which version did what)

It's my understanding that the 2D clock problem shows itself only if you use ATI Overdrive? Factory overclocked cards don't have the issue unless you go even further via Overdrive. I still run 2D at 157/300

What you have is a Timeout Detection & Recovery. (which sometimes doesn't recover)

Read up on updating your motherboard BIOS and update to the latest version. This motherboard had TDR issues with any BIOS earlier than F5 and the HD5 series.

Latest is BIOS is F10

GA-P55M-UD2 (rev. 1.0) - GIGABYTE for P55m UD2 revision 1.0 F10 2010/05/13
GA-P55M-UD2 (rev. 1.1) - GIGABYTE for P55m UD2 revision 1.1 F10 2010/05/13

Updating the motherboard BIOS on a gigabyte board should be quite easy and trouble free with the use of Q-Flash which is built into the BIOS.

I never recomend updating a motherboard BIOS unless I believe it is necessary as an incorrect Flash can render your board unbootable.
