Recently I downloaded ATI Tray Tools, because my 2D clock speeds were causing artifacts in dual screen mode, and I set 3D clocks to the same as they were in Catalyst Control Centre... And this has worked fine for a couple weeks, so why does it crash now? The crash looks like a you problem, and I can boot into safe mode and it SEEMS like it won't crash on me...
Temps are fine. Only other thing is, I had a second hard drive but for some reason, it has started to fail on me, and now it slows my computer to a crawl when it is plugged in, it shows me my files but it is slow as [bleep], so as much as I want the stuff off of it, I just can't use it =[ but could this have caused damage, maybe to the mobo?
Also, sometimes, but rarely, firefox opens at startup and takes me to a random language learning site that I've never heard of... Seems malware-y but avast detects nothing and it hasn't been a problem, just suspicious. It's just, before my computer crashes now, I notice firefox trying to load in task manager, I'm not sure if it's malware related or taking me to some kind of crash report...
Hopefully you guys can help diagnose and fix the problem, I know you're good like that =]
Happy Christmas eve one and all
EDIT: I was posting on an iPod before, I am now in safe mode, and yes, it definitely seems to be running without issue. As I said before, I really don't think it is temperatures, else it likely wouldn't even let me turn it back on so soon after the crash.
Whilst in safe mode, it is defaulting to a maximum resolution of 1400*1050 (I normally use 1920*1080). If I select ANY other resolution, the screen just goes blank so I have to wait for it to change back... Is this normal behaviour for safe mode?
In case it helps, now let me post a few specs also, and please let me know if you need more information, I really hope this will be an easy fix, and that nothing is seriously damaged...
-Intel i5 750 @ 2.67GHz
-Windows 7 64bit Home Premium
-AMD Radeon 6750 (2D clock 256:300 and 3D clock I think is around 700:1200)
I believe CCC and Drivers are the latest version. As said before, I have been running the card on these clocks for a while, then when I set up dual monitors I downloaded ATI Tray Tools to prevent screen flickering due to too low 2D clock speeds, and has been running fine since for at least 2 weeks. Then last night, I got major screen flickering when quitting a game, it was either snapshot or ace of spades, which was also I think after I cancelled an installation of Direct X, though this shouldn't break it completely surely, considering I am always on the latest Direct X, so no files should have been changed during that process, right?
