Hello Everyone,


I need help with my Graphics Card.

On the pictures you can see what my Card shows me right now.

It occured after installing the Crimson 30 November Patch.

I watched an episode of a Tv series and after 40 minutes~ my pc shut down. After rebooting to figure out what happened the graphic bugs appeared.

Now I can only use the safe mode or use the onboard graphics. In the safe mode the red "stripes" still appear.



What I already tried:
1. Used the Windows restore point feature.

2. used amd clean up utility.

3. Used the 15.11.1 Crimson update

4. amd clean up utility again + 15.7 Catalyst driver.

5. I formated my SSD and reinstalled Windows and did step 2-4 again.

6. After that I reseted my BIOS/UEFI

7. reinstalled Windows again and tried it all over again.

8. Didnt use the computer for 2 days just beeing superstitious.


Now I don't know what to do.

I bought the card on the 05.04.2012 And my warranty is not avaible anymore..


Should I renew the thermal paste?

Is my card 100% broken and lost?

plz help
