I have had this problem since I built my new system.
I was positive that the fault lied within the ATI Graphics card... I WAS WRONG...

Listen... the problem isn't exclusive to ATI or NVIDIA, the problem lies within the OS itself (must be)...

I have an ATI HD5770 (and pretty much a brand new system i.e MoBo GA-790XT-USB3 F4,CPU Phenom II X4 BE, RAM oCZ 1866, PSU 530... etc.), and I have tried everything...

I have tried...
Bios updates
drivers updates
windows reinstall
IN-bios settings tweaks
and bleep load of other things that didn't do squat...


So... after I have received my Card back ( second RMA) I have found some post saying,,, "it is all win 7's fault.

So I have decided to set a dual boot system, and install XP pro as a gaming only OS...

Haven't had a problem since...

Trust me, don't waste your time trying to fix win 7... it's a "lemon" slightly better then "vista".


If you're willing to set your PC in the dual boot mode, here is a great post that explains a lot (everything) of things...
Pay attention to...
SATA drivers
FrameWork 2.0
EasyBCD

I'm making this post because I wished someone had done it for me before... I'm not a Tech specialist or something, I'm just someone that is willing to offer some odvice to my "fellow travelers"...


P.S. I'm still non positive where does the fault lies.
Is it with Microsoft... because they didn't make it compatibile...
, or is it with the Graphic cards software programmers... because they couldn't implement their software to work with Win 7...
Either way... from the consumer point of view, That is unacceptable.


If that has helped you, just post something like "It worked". why...? cause I'm hoping that if there is enough posts, maybe microsoft will take notice of the obvious problem.

I should correct myself... it's not Windows 7 ( but keep in mind , that I'm not sure) it seems that the problem comes from the 64bit releases...

I'm still not positive if I should blame the "Drivers" writers, or the Microsoft themselves.
