Weird graphical overlay in certain 3D rendering games.

Question asked by electrobrine on Aug 6, 2015

I do not know if this is the best place to put this but since the common factor is an AMD chip set gpu and drivers this is where I am going to put it.


about a year ago I bought a new computer since my old one fried and before I put my graphics card in it all the games ran fine other then the fact they were slow.  However, after I put in my graphics card (which is a sapphire radeon hd 6970) and installed the drivers a few of my games (that use 3D rendering, such as minecraft) started looking like the attached image.  I have searched many places trying to find the answer but found nothing.  I also assumed it was either a windows 8.1 problem or a hardware problem but as stated before it only started happening after the addition of the card and drivers.  To make sure, however, I have updated my motherboard to a newer and better model as well as having updated to a SSD,  I also have updated to windows 10.  Nothing has changed after all this.  If anyone has any answers or solutions please help.
