[ 8/2/2010 9:35:59 PM] When i play games that are 3-d I get pixels on my screen. The card does not get hot what so ever. It always stays under 55c. I have a great cooling system 11 fans, anyway I upgraded from a 9800 GTX+ to this and would think i wouldn`t have these issues. I understand it`s a new card It`s why I`m not running circles with my head chopped off. Please help
[ 8/2/2010 9:38:20 PM] O yea the only way to get it to stop is to restart the PC, I turned off CCC and it helped a little bit also the game with randomly crash too the screen will go yellow with lines or simply freeze. My CPU isn`t getting anywhere near max hits about 25% usage is a Hyper threaded quad core and my memory laughs at the game sitting at like 20% usage. My hard drive is new as well.

[ 8/2/2010 9:41:09 PM] Huh? The second message went twice thats odd hahahah
[ERIK_A 8/2/2010 9:42:53 PM] Hi Jeffrey, Start with the drivers. Go into programs and files section within the control, find the ATI catalyst install manager. Click the change/modify button next to it. It will launch a wizard, you want to do the express uninstall option it gives you. After that’s uninstalled make sure that you have a clean install of drivers. We highly recommend Driver Sweeper, found at http://www.guru3d.com/category/driversweeper/ which will come in handy for cleaning out traces of older graphics drivers. Download the program, install it, but don’t run it until you’ve rebooted into Safe Mode (tap F8 during boot up) and then choose ATIDisplay as the cleaning selection. Run that 3 4 times, to be thorough, and then youll reboot into normal Windows mode in order to reinstall drivers. Go straight with the latest driver package. Get the drivers right from here http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_catalyst.aspx .
[ 8/2/2010 9:45:13 PM] Ok will do be right back, although it was doing this with my old hard drive and my new hard drive was a fresh reinstall sooo.....
[ 8/2/2010 9:46:26 PM] Still want me to do that even though it seems it wont work due to this is a new hard drive and the old drivers are in no way to be found.

[ 8/5/2010 12:28:44 AM] You have been very helpful thank you. You have always answered my questions and never shown any kind of rudeness. I appreciate this customer service as I have been in the customer service as a salesmen, general and now tech. It`s hard to find people like Erik here. Treat him with all the kindness he deserves. I have sent my baby in (video card), and hope it gets fixed. I heard that if not repaired can be replaced by a Nvidia or another ATI... I would hope I`d keep the same 5870 series would be nice ya know.
[ 8/6/2010 5:21:21 PM] Please notify me on the smallest thing with my card, also how do you test the cards cause If I can know I wont have to ever send you any cards : ). Be as technical as possible I don`t mind. Tech Field: 3 years, A.S. Degree in Networking from ITT. Kinda wish I did hardware as well but hey pick one field and stick to it hehehhe
[DANIEL_E 8/6/2010 11:18:26 PM] Hi, they will test the cards in a system with some diagnostic tests as well as in real world games. For the most part if something fails testing here we send it back to our factory. We don`t normally do component level diagnostics. Once we receive and scan the card into testing we`ll let you know. Daniel
[ 8/7/2010 2:42:57 AM] sweet thank you, I hope they seen what I had seen :)
[ 8/7/2010 2:47:14 AM] I noticed you have my card now, if anything was damaged during shipping I have a 400 Dollar insurance on it, please tell me if it got damaged so I can consult USPS. Thank yas

Got an RMA, card went out Friday. Should have it on Monday. Hopefully they have a quick turn around, and they don't find my card not fautly. The issues I'm having with it are very subtle, but there non the less.
