    Default weird problem

    okay i got my new 5770 yesterday, and it worked fine, except for when my computer would idle there would be little red blocks everywhere, but i ran it for about 6 hours straight with no real problems.

    but this morning i got the same problems that i had before i sent the card in. the computer boots all the way up to the windows splash screen and when the screen (is supposed to) change to the user login screen it just goes black.

    but if i go into safe mode and uninstall the drivers, the computer would boot normally

    should i contact sapphire again for another RMA?

    in the mean time im getting well aquainted with safe mode

    I agree, two dead cards in the same way seems a little too odd for my liking. Is your pci down at 100 or pushed up? Does sound like a m/b problem.

    Yep, 2 dead cards with the exact same problem in the exact same spot? No way. My guess is you have a power/temp/mobo issue.

    I see you are using 3 operating systems. Is this happening in all three at bootup?

    Do you have the proper 32bit and 64 bit drivers loaded for the appropriate systems?

    I would also suggest trying another slot if available.

    Good luck!

    i only have 1 slot and when it worked, i still had my nvidia drivers on my computer

    well my XP X64 stopped working, and yes it happens in XP and W7,
    yes i had the right drivers




    Id hate to have to pull out my 939 Nforce4 board to test it also..


    so im probably going to buy a AM3 board that supports PIIX6 and drop a cheap athlon in there until the X6's come out

    Why not delete partitions create new partition and load win7 and see what happens? it would not be the first time a dual or tripple boot system went haywire...

    Good luck!

    well the reason X64 stopped working is because i took the hard drive with most of the data out
    and all my OS's are on different partitions
