    AMD Gigabyte 7950 WF3 Windforce - Always back to 900/1250 HZ

    it appears that the xfx DD ghost cooler model doesnt have a bios switch :/ i guess thats the reason why im being so careful. that and a brilliant friend gave me this 7950 recently since he got an RX 480, and my 6950 didnt have the driver updates/dx12 ability needed to run some of my games (the...

    AMD Gigabyte 7950 WF3 Windforce - Always back to 900/1250 HZ

    ive copied the original bios from the card, and edited the clocks (changed the uvd clocks from 501/1250 amd 850/1250 to 301/150 and 1050/1350) and saved it as a different file. however, he bios files are VERY different sizes (EDIT: the orignal copied from the card is 256KB, the edited is...

    AMD Gigabyte 7950 WF3 Windforce - Always back to 900/1250 HZ

    Hmmmmmm. Do you know where I might find a guide to this? I managed to find d vbe7 but can't find any information on how to patch the BIOS to solve this.

    AMD Gigabyte 7950 WF3 Windforce - Always back to 900/1250 HZ

    My 7950 only drives one monitor, the other 2 are under the control of the Intel graphics. Afterburner has zero effect on the clocks when this bug occurs. Equally, it shows no applications using 3d acceleration (clicking the I icon and checking 3d apps). Restarting the driver using...

    AMD Gigabyte 7950 WF3 Windforce - Always back to 900/1250 HZ

    i have a very similar problem, only the clocks that i get stuck at are 501 idle core 1250 idle ram, with 850 load core 1250 load ram. rolling back to 16.1.1 solved it, but there are plenty of games that wont run on such an old driver. i have noticed that it happens in games that have an intro...

    Seagate 2TB detection issues - P5Q-E

    The mystery now is why does one system show no errors and work perfectly?

    Seagate 2TB detection issues - P5Q-E

    I tried different cables on both computers, works fine on the dell but doesn't on my Asus p5qe EDIT: a third machine shows 'smart command failure during boot', and exhibits the same behaviours as my Asus p5qe based system.

    Seagate 2TB detection issues - P5Q-E

    This is what confuses me. Different ports on the same PC result in the same error according to post, but another PC works absolutely fine, all of the files are intact and correctly sized.

    Seagate 2TB detection issues - P5Q-E

    hi guys. I recently got a hard drive for my aging machine (a 2TB Seagate ST2000DM001-1ER164). it worked perfectly initially, downloading and installing 620GB of steam games in one day. however, upon starting up today, the hard drive seems to be having issues. but here is where it gets...

    sapphire 7770 ghz edition - display driver stopped responding

    i do believe ive found the problem. it was my CPU overclock. ive brought it back down to 3.0GHZ and it seems to have corrected the problem. i didnt think of this before because the cpu never let me down, it never failed any test i threw at it, including various different prime95 tests...

    sapphire 7770 ghz edition - display driver stopped responding

    well, i got them to replace the card, seeing as it was crashing the driver in more than one game, and its still crashing. so, am i really unlucky and have received 2 bad cards, or is something else in my computer going wrong? ive replaced the graphics card, and reinstalled all software, so im...

    sapphire 7770 ghz edition - display driver stopped responding

    sorry for the slow reply, decided to run some more thorough tests, and got caught up in playing deus ex lol. tom clancy's ghost recon future soldier seems to work ok (for the half-hour or so i played it recently). darkstar one seems to be ok too ( a couple of hours at least). crysys seems to...

    sapphire 7770 ghz edition - display driver stopped responding

    hi guys. i had a stable overclock of about 1100 core, 1175 mem, and when i tried to play borderlands, i had display driver errors every minute or so. so i removed te overclock, and tried agai. this time, it took longer to happen, but it was still about a minute before it crashed again...

    XFX 7970 Working as PCI-E 3.0 @ x8 1.1 ?

    my guess is, since you are only getting 8x, that some of the lanes are disconnected, and its reverted to 8x. most like since that card is sagging like crazy. could also be something as simple as a spec of dust combined with the sag.

    5850 display flickering - 2 or more screens

    well thats a kick in the teeth...... is it still common with the 69xx series or is it still "a limited number"? was wondering if i return it to get a 6950. i believe thats about as close as i can get. unless a 6850/6870 is about the same. i got this card for about £140 loving eyefinity...

    some speaker sets also have it in a hardware option, so check for that as well.

    i7 980x should i bite the bullet or wait for the i7 990 ?

    just about every cpu since some late P4s have 64 bit capability (i think? at least since the core solo), so that isnt a thing to be worried about :)
