Hello, everyone.

I want to ask for an opinion about the GPU issue.

I use pretty old AMD HD5450 1GB 64 bit GDDR3. After a clean install of Windows 7, the video card doesn't seem to be working correctly on the initial boot.

So, this is what I mean:

  1. The video card is installed correctly in the PCI-e slot.
  2. Win7 installation.
  3. Video driver installation (the one that comes in the bundle).
  4. Turn off the computer completely.

Then, the next stupid thing happens:

  1. I turn on the computer.
  2. launch Firefox, open any website with the video content, and any video will stutter when playing.
  3. I launch Chrome - and have no issues with video playback. You may start to think that this is the browser...but
  4. But, when I launch a game, it glitches a lot (GTR 2 or Counter Strike).

I would instantly tell that the video card is bad.


But here is how the issue is resolved: I simply restart my computer and all glitches are gone.

Then, when I restart the same session again, glitches are back.

When I restart the session after the previous restart....glitches are gone... then they are back again after the next restart.


This may sound really stupid, but maybe I didn't set it up correctly in the BIOS or anything like that? 
I have installed different AMD drivers, the issue is still there.


So, any suggestions?

What made you decide to reinstall Windows?

When Speccy opens you will see a screen similar to the one below.

Thanks for the response. Actually, it was a new build, so I had to make a clean install. Win 7 was installed only once.

I will use Speccy when I get home.
