Thanks for the info
I damn near replaced everything and guess what happens?
You got it....the Graphics card decides to crap out. (Gygabyte HD7770)
So I put the HD4870 back in and it still lives (thank goodness because I can never do without my comp for to long). And of course it says in GPU-Z it is running on 2.0 like it should be Which leads me to believe the MB was going bad all along.
But, it kinda brings me back to what to do about the 4870, because it still runs on the wrong freqs. for it to run stable I have to underclock it. It is a Diamond and I went through all the BS with returning it way back and they said it was fixed. But it did the same thing as before. (and being out of warranty now. lol).
OK! So here is the deal. I want to flash it but don't really know if it is safe? I kinda read many of times it is a hit and miss kind of thing, sometimes it ok and sometimes it screws it all up. But I need it to run at lower clocks from the stock that ATI even says, it always worked fine then.
Stock clocks: 795/1100
Clocks @ 750/1000 are stable and no random pixellations (at least for me and this card).
Also, at stocks clocks it would always give me random pixels when playing any graphic intense game, like WoW or Dragon Age. And basically would cause random system crashes.
Thanks for any help
of your afraid to do it get msi after burner or something and have it load those clocks at startup.
Don't use the CCC at all? Because the CCC won't let me change them now and before I had to use ATI tray tool to change them. But ati tray tool won't start with win7, I have to load it each time I start the comp.
Oh I forgot I had Gigabyte OC_GURU II
That seem to change the clocks for me. I see if that program works OK.
I find very odd solution to resolve this problem.
Go to Start menu and switch pc to Sleep mode , After bring back from sleep mode pci express work properly!!!!
sounds like power properties are messing up, turn those off and enable max performance in windows control panel that doesnt mess with the link state of the PCIe slots
I did and still saying 1.1! The only solution I found until this moment is switching to Sleep!
This thread has been dead for 5 months, I see no need to turn it into a zombie.
sounds like a windows problem on your end or a driver, I always disable Power states for Desktops because honestly they are not needed
