    Over, you mean more than 10.6, like 10.7 or better? This is a joke man ;) , I've been using 11.2 on a HD4870, it was working perfectly..

    You can try any driver, older or newer. if it still crash, the problem might not be your driver, but maybe the card itself, or Power supply... or the OS..

    Can you detail more about this? do you have a spare card to try?

    Really? That's an odd problem. I gave away one of my old systems to a really good friend that had a Radeon HD 4850 in it and running the latest drivers gave him no trouble. This happens even with the latest 12.2 drivers? What kind of crash do you get? A hard crash where everything locks up, a blue screen, or does windows say that your display driver recovered from an error?

    Have you tried running MSI Afterburner to watch GPU/Memory clocks when you try to do something that uses video? I don't think that card has voltage control but it might tell you a little bit about what is going on. How about in another machine, is the video card still stable with the latest drivers? You might want to try ruling out the video card itself first.

    Oh bro
    drivers v12.2 too bad. When I installation it no "welcome screen" just black screen with strange color :confused:

    but that happen 2 times then it's work fine

    but not fine when playing game or watching YouTube video

    So I was think it's Driver issue but it's not

    before 3 hours I download driver v9.4 where " RejZoR " provide it but after 4 minutes playing PC frizzing and crash

    and yes


    I try to used MSI Kombustor to see max heat, So I get between 63 ~ 68
    with no frizzing or crash

    but when play game such as Dirt3 after 5 or 3 minutes crash , and GPU heat 61c when it's crash


    So I don't think it's heat issue

    becuse I try many thing to keep this card under cooling . even I change his Heatsinks

    [​IMG]

    I try it on 4 different PC but same problem

    all that pc has win 7



    anyway thank you all for help

    I think I will try it on Win XP or Vista

    I think the problem is with the card itself if you're experiencing such problems across all driver versions.

    The strange thing in this card I cant change memory clock

    So it's now 400MHz

    If I make it 401MHz or 399MHz graphic will crash

    but Core clock I can only make it less than 750MHz


    Thanks [​IMG]

    Anyone who would suggest that 4xxx series hardware is best served by something other than the latest driver has been severely misinformed.

    I'm currently running 2x 4870x2 and the only time I ever used anything but the latest drivers was the brief period of time after Catalyst 10.5 and before the 10.8b hotfix where the 10.6, 10.7, and 10.8 (pre-hotfix) drivers all broke the internal crossfire in the 4870x2. Other than that using the latest drivers and latest caps has always provided excellent results. Even during that brief period of time I was still able to use the new caps on top of the older driver.

    To ensure your machine works properly, ensure windows patches are installed, Install latest motherboard bios, ensure motherboard bios is set right, install latest motherboard drivers, install latest video card and other peripheral drivers install latest version of Direct X, ensure games are updated.
