GSOD - Grey Screen Of Death This is what it looks like, kinda, can be various colors I've been encountering this issue since I got the HD 7950 last thursday. First off I thought it was too high of an overclock until today I did some googling around and found that it's a pretty common issue that's been plaguing AMD gpus since the HD 4xxx series of cards. The reasons, from what I understand after doing a fair bit of research, could be: 1. Too high of an overclock of vram - Certain cards are fine at stock clocks but develop GSOD when overclocking vram a tad too far. 2. Driver related issue - Some people seem to have fixed this with installing different drivers. 3. gpu hardware acceleration - This gets mentioned a lot. People who run into GSODs exclusively while the gpu is idle (browsing etc) have found that disabling hardware acceleration in their browser and photoshop etc fixed their problem 4. Some only have GSOD at 3D clocks when playing games 5. Others say it is a problem when using 2 monitors - When one is connected via DVI and the other one via HDMI. It's suggested that connecting HDMI cable into a mini DP adapter and then into the mini DP on the gpu fixes problems. 6. I'm sure there was another scenario but can't remember now, will edit post later. My GSOD happens exclusively when the gpu is idle. Somehow I'm thinking it's the DVI+HDMI problem here. My HD 7950 is clocked at 1100/1500 @1.237/1.6. I ran a few loops of 3D Mark 2011 today, not a single artifact, all 6 runs finished without a problem, max temp was 64C and all was good. Until I started browsing the net, then it happened. I even just ran 3D Mark 2011 just now with same voltages but at 1100/1550 and it finished no problem, 2 runs, not a single hickup. That makes me think that it's not the vram not getting enough volts or the 1500mhz memory clock being too high. I will try to run 3D Mark 2011 again with 1600mhz and post back. I have disconnected my 2nd monitor (32" LCD TV) while running this last 3D Mark run. Please come into this thread and post your experience and possible solutions for this problem.
