    Hey guys. I reformatted my computer the other day and I came across something I have never seen before. I installed drivers for my ATI Radeon x850xt Platinum and after the restart my computer found another device located on the x850xt. I figured I would just let it search the cd for the new driver. It installed some codec driver and now the computer screen will blackout every once in awhile. I have no idea what is going on and the ATI support guys have not replied to any of my questions. I tried reinstalling the device using the latest drivers from the internet, but still no luck.

    Thanks,
    nPess

    definitely don't use the cd, download the drivers from ATI's site

    boot to safe mode, uninstall old drivers, then reinstall the driver using the one you downloaded.
    it is important to uninstall the old ones.

    edit: wait,... blackouts once in a while? you sure this is not a monitor power scheme?

    Positive. I just got a new monitor and went through the manual and all of the settings.
