    So, I'm another lucky one.

    My 6790 is having those 3D to 2D crashing problems. When I turn on the computer and first use it on 2D, works fine, when play any 3D game, ok, but when I got back to 2D from the 3D, suddenly crashes.

    Already researched a lot about it, and all I know is about core/voltage settings, that changes from full performance to a low use/economy setting.

    Whats the best way of fixing that? How can I increase core's and voltage's speed of 2D mode in a safe way?

    Tried MSI Afterburner, but I don't know if I didnt something right, it doesnt helped. Tried RBE but theres a lot of clock speeds. I tried to make all the same and the card bricked and I had to unbrick it, and that was a pain in the ass. I mean, which column on the clocks speed page is relate to 2D? Which one should I change? And that clock speed must be the same as 3D values or lower?

    Welcome to TPU

    Could try this

    -Remove any overclocks from CPU & MEM [run bios defaults while testing]

    -Double check memory timings

    -Uninstall any overclocking applications and reboot the system

    -Download Sapphire trixx and install; use the disable Ulps tab and then restart windows.

    Missed off all the bits that matter;

    -Make and model number of the HD 6790 ?

    nb: if you get a chance next time you are logged in; fill in system specs in UserCP and enable

    atb (all the best)
