    Hello All,

    I keep getting blue screens on my other desktop. So far, this is what I did.

    - Replaced my HDD with SSD
    - Reinstalled Windows 7
    - Tested my memory with Memtest

    I want to test my (HIS ATI radeon HD 5850) video card for its stability. If you know any program that test the video card, please let me know.

    Thank you,

    Z52

    MSI's Afterburner. Also, take a hard look at your power supply.

    How do I test the power supply?
    My PSU: COOLER MASTER Silent Pro RS850-AMBAJ3-US 850W

    Mostly by process of elimination. Test everything else, then swap out the PSU, if you can.

    I've seen a PSU stress test on OCCT but I'm not sure how it directly stresses out the PSU over other components.
