Hello there mate,
1st time post for me,
i'm from Indonesia, and i just got my r7870 recently
and i'm using it now for playing Guild Wars 2.
1st i'm using the "auto detect" mode in Guild Wars 2
where give me "high" setting for the graphic
but after a few minutes i got a black screen.....
that force me to shut down my system by press and hold the power button,
then i try with "low" setting for the graphic (in Guild Wars2)
but still got the black screen after another few minute..
and i always got black screen while i try to re-active my monitor after entering "sleep/power saving mode"
and i'm using CCC ver. 12.8

i have been search and found some post with similar issue with this (black screen while gaming with r7870)

what can i do to solve this prob ?


Note : before using r7870, i used r4870 1GB, and have no problem playing Guild Wars 2 (in low setting)

here is my rig :

Main Board : MSI - Z68MA - G45
CPU : I3 - 2120
RAM : 2x4GB GSkill
PSU : 650 Watt Seasonic
HHD : 2x 500gb Seagate
Graph Card : MSI - r7870 TF3 OC edition

sorry for my bad English, hope you all still can understand.

Hi

Try this - Uninstall your vga driver; follow this guide by erocker - http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=52502

Next, reinstall AMD Drivers

Use the latest drivers from AMD http://sites.amd.com/us/game/downloa...n_win7-64.aspx or drivers you know are stable from their archive http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownloa...w_vista64.aspx

Next: Reinstall DirectX http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35

Next: Install any/latest patch available for Guild Wars2

Next: Download GPU-Z http://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/SysInfo/GPU-Z/ and monitor GPU Temps while running Guild Wars2

Could you let the TPU community know if your vga card; dose this running all games or just Guild Wars2?

Edit: ensure power leads to the vga card are secure
