    Hi Gurus, need ur help with this problem. This just happened recently, everytime I turn on my PC, I got this weird grey line pattern:
    [​IMG]


    Even if I just refreshing my screen or open a Windows Explorer, that thing will pop-up straightaway :( Tried to clean up the cards and the slot, no luck. I've even tried to reinstall the driver, it still happens. Anybody know what would have caused this? :( Thanks for ur help Gurus

    UPDATE: When on desktop, if I didn't do anything (no refresh on the screen), everything is fine. Weird.

    You sure its a hardware issue? Do you have any sort of other graphics card you can try out? Thats what I always do first is test the hardware.

    Unfortunately, I don't have any spare video card laying around. Seems like if I do something when the PC still loading the video driver (e.g. refreshing the screen or whatever), that thing will pop-up straightaway :(

    GSOD (Grey Screen Of Death) typically driver related, happened a lot on the HD 5800 series.

    Have you tried Catalyst 10.5? It resolved the GSOD issue for my 5870 when I owned it.

    remove any overclock, complete uninstall any video driver/cap on your system, install latest drivers

    What he said ^

    Don't quote me but I read it was caused by low voltage...I remember there were a few threads on this forum regarding GSOD and how to fix it..

    May want to search the ATI section anyway. Is your card overclocked?

    Ah, I see. I'll have a look at GSOD thing. Never apply OC when on desktop/browsing, I only do mild OC (760 MHz core / 1100 MHz memory), when gaming with MSI AB.

    If that's the same motherboard as the one in your system profile, you should have on-board video you could try out.

    Tried to use the onboard HD4290, dunno why it refuses to work. It works only when I boot in Safe Mode, if I do normal boot, no display on my screen :(
    I was able to use it before.......

    Safe mode is most likely using the generic driver, normal boot using catalyst.

    Uninstall the add-in card, and check your BIOS to ensure the first display is the built in GPU.

    Uninstall video drivers, and re-install when ready to use the built in GPU.

    PITA, but the only real sure-fire way to ensure you're using the correct GPU for testing.
