I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello and welcome.

First have you run a full updated virus scan if not I recommend you do so...

Download and run a full scan using malwarebytes if you don't have it, heres the link.. Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware, anti-virus and spyware removal download free version of course..

Fan's you might try these..

Core Temp

CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting

Make sure that you are not infected with malware or virus, then we look at the rest...You do have some things going on but lets rule out these first...

Running win7 and phoshop cs4, how do I know gpu mode is used ?
Photoshop seems not to detect gpu it asks to consult a site
where no specific information is availaible

Would love to see the effect, or is photoshop cs4 picking up gpu automaticaly ?

A:ATI 4850 gpu

Photoshop picks it up automatically. The message PS throws up is simply to direct you to the most recent upgrades. The 4850 is major overkill for Photoshop.

Hi sandeep.......
are the cards still performing how they should (gaming)..??

did you run any other benches prior to the install of 7057..?? (3dmark, vantage, pcmark) these will be a better judge of your rigs performance.....
remember its still a BETA & ppl can get different results from the WEI with the same H/W...

No its not, its the reason your computer turns off.
But it is too hot, if you can control case fans, turn them all the way up, and turn up your fan speed on the card.

You shouldn't expect the 4850 to run "all those games" on max.

A:I'm looking at a hd 4850 or maybe a 4830 & my PSU

Is the 500 watt you're looking at a reputable brand, such as Corsair, Thermaltake, PC Power and Cooling?

Branded PSU's such as a 450 watt one will be more expensive than a 500 watt, 600 or watt or even 700 watts (700 watts are being sold for about ?20-?30 on ebay, but no brand) because they're generally a lot better quality in build and performance.

I'm not sure what "quality" of PSU it is when it says "recommended 450 watt", but it's always best to get a proper PSU. It is probably the only component in a computer you musn't cut corners on. I learnt that a few years ago when I bought a no branded PSU as a replacement and blue sparks started flying out the back of my PC.

i hope Someone can help.
Thanks for now !!!

425 Watt power supply is to small. First you will need to upgrade to atleast 600 Watt. I like the corsair PSU.

For a upgrade what is the budget.

For under $200:

I'm running Windows 7 Pro x32bit with 4GB RAM and an AMD Athlon 64 X2 DCP 4400+, 2200 Mhz. My Samsung SyncMaster 2443 uses an ATI Radeon Xpress Series (0x5954) Adapter and is uninstalled when it's time to install the proper drivers/software for the ATI RADEON HD 4850 Graphics Card (PCIe). After the reboot if I get a screen at all, it's effected by the weight of the card itself and must be adjusted by hand until the "green" goes away. After that is taken care of, within 5 minutes I get the BSOD!!! The Blue Screen Of Death informs me that a recent change to the Graphics card or adapter caused the problem. The computer is beyond the system requirements and should work fine, right? Any suggestions on how to handle this, steps to try or something I'm just outright forgetting here?

Thanks in advance any help that you can provide!

hi x51shadow, and welcome to sevenforums,

er, i think you are missing a poll option (or maybe two).

how about 'no - never had a problem with it?'

i used to have one and it worked great. at the time it was an absolute bargain, and i loved it. i only upgraded to a 4890 after i bought a 1920x1080 monitor, and found the 4850 didn't quite have enough oomph to push all those pixels about.

i sold it to a friend and he's still happy playing modern games with it on his smaller monitor.

I purchased this video card with much fragging in mind.

However, when it arrived the card wouldn't fit in my motherboard. There's a capacitor in the way. If you've ever seen this card, the heat-sink and fan are huge.

Does anyone have any ideas on what to do? From what I can gather these cards run pretty hot, so I'm reluctant to run it without the fan.

I have a smaller fan lying around, no heat-sink on it though, that I could hack onto the board...maybe see if that would work.

Other than that...what could I possibly do? With all the brain power here, someone's got to be able to think of something!

So here's the deal - I'm going to upgrade most of my system (CPU, mobo, RAM, graphics, maybe SSD) pretty soon but I'm still undecided whether to get a Radeon 5850 or get another 4850 and go Crossfire...

Buying a 4850 would cost 70, whereas a 5850 costs 220, minus the proceeds from my 4850 which gives a net figure of 150. Apparently the performances are pretty similar for these two setups, although obviously being a single card the 5850 won't have many driver issues and uses less power. I'm hoping that the 5850 will come down in price once the GTX 470/480 hit the market.

I'm interested to hear the thoughts of anyone who has either of these setups, and if anyone owns a DX11 card - are there any notable differences? Also if I get a board with 2 PCI Express x16 slots running at x16 and x4, will there be any significant performance loss?

A:Get a 5850 or add another 4850 in CF?

I presume by "notable differences", you mean between DX11 and DX10/9 ?
If that's the case then from what I've seen/played (DIRT2, Call of Pripyat) -then no, not a lot. There are differences but during gameplay I wouldn't say it's very noticable- not like the difference between static and full dynamic lighting for example, where the game just feels tangibly better.
The 5850 would give better AA levels and probably higher minimum framerates- although that would depend (slightly) whether you have 512Mb or 1Gb HD 4850 cards.

There would be some performance loss going with 4 lanes mechanical on the secondary card. Not so much with a HD4850 in the slot, but the 5850 would be handicapped to measurable degree. I'd probably skip the budget P55 boards (if this what you were planning on) and go with a board that can scale the PCIe lanes to x8, x8 if you plan on Crossfire. There should not be a large price difference involved.

With all that out of the way, whether the 5850 upgrade is worth the extra outlay would depend on what monitor resolution you game at, how much gaming you do (or will do), and whether the extra outlay is going to represent a financial hassle.
I would probably go with the 5850 now as AMD are not likely to lower prices any time soon, in fact prices could well go up if the GTX 470/480 stocks aren't great. You will most likely get a better price for your 4850 now as well, since the card is still currently stocked as a new part.
If you are planning on Crossfiring 4850's then I would likely keep them until AMD refresh the 5xxx series or introduce it's replacement either late this year, or early 2011.

I'm getting a new PC. I decided on an AMD Phenom II X2 550 for CPU and HD 4850 512 MB for GPU. Please suggest an AM2+ motherboard. I don't plan to go X-fire and won't be doing much overclocking. It should support two IDE/PATA drives. My budget is $100. Will 4 GB 800MHz DDR2 be enough? I read in ASUS's website that Windows XP does not recognize more than 3GB RAM. Is it right?

A:Mobo for X2 550 and HD 4850

Windows XP will recognize 3 GB in some machines, and 3.5 GB of the 4 GB installed in a few others.
Any board designed for the AMD will work well if made by ASUS, Gagabyte, MSI, Biostar, ECS Elitegroup...
We like the ASUS M4A78 or ASUS M4A785TD, MSI 770-C45, and Elitegroup ECS GF8200A or A785GM-M which all slide under your $100 limit.

I recently installed RTM Windows 7 Pro. Before i had 7000,7056 and 7100. On 7000 and at 7056 i've had similar problem i have now. When i try to refresh my Windows Experience Index my screen goes black with colour boxes and i have to restart computer. Screen goes black when windows try to test Graphics 3D performance. I experienced it in some games too, it happens when graphic card tries to change mode from 2d to 3d (when screen is blinking after entering game). Earlier, after clean 7100 install i did't have that problems. I don't think thats my PSU problem, because i'm playing many new games and computer is working fine. As i said it only happens when graphic card is changing modes. System is 64 bit, i have newest 9.10 catalyst drivers. Graphic card is Radeon 4850 Gainward Golden Sample.

Any solutions?

Some more weird things happened today, (btw this is a 4870, not 50)

Comp had some major issues starting up. The trick mentioned before did not work to get rid of the blank screen.

When it finally DID start up there were small artifacts (little red streaks/lines, not the big red blocks of before) and then the screen simply froze, and the screen went blank, but did not return this time.

I waited a little while, and it turned on perfectly fine, and I'm now typing this... installing the newest drivers aswell

Err.. Radeon HD 4850 competes with Geforce 9800 GTX+ and OC 9800 GTX, not with 9800 GT. Only reason why anyone else than a faithful and ignorant nvidia fanboy wouldn't buy a 4850 is the stock cooler's crappiness (not actually crap, it just takes 2 mins of your time to put it at optimal speed).

A:ATI 4850 driver issues

I've run Windows 7 on a machine with an HD 4850 graphics card and I'm pretty sure there is nothing inherently problematic with the combination. It's likely the driver did not install completely or properly for some reason.

I'd start by removing the current driver entirely...the easiest way is to go to c:\ati\support\pacakgename\driver\

then click on setup.exe to start the ATI driver manager. Select your language of choice, then select unistall and follow the prompts from there.

When the machine reboots it should come up with the standard VGA driver in some reduced screen resolution...don't worry about that now, and if the Windows offers to update or install new drivers select no or cancel or whatever it takes to prevent it from doing so.

click start, all programs and then Windows Update. Click on check for updates. This may take a few minutes. when finished, it should present a list of suggested updates and in that list should be the driver for the ATI HD4XXX graphics adapter. Make sure there is a check in the box next to that item and allow Windows to install that update. Reboot when prompted. Windows should detect your display and automatically configure itself for the optimal screen resolution and horizontal refresh rate.

If the display and adapter appear to be working properly at that point, I would resist the urge to further update the drive unless the release notes for the new version indicate a fix for a specific problem you are experiencing. Even in that case I'd wait a couple of weeks to see if Windows Update will pickup the new version...this will ensure you receive a package where the installer has been tested and validated against Windows 7.

A:Sapphire 4850 issues

The core/memory speed reported are the idle speeds...the card throttles itself like the Intel processors do with speed step or the AMD processors do with cool'n'quiet when it is not under load. It is normal and actually described as a feature. When under load your card will use the overclocked settings you set without any performance penalty. I suggest you get the latest GPUZ which allows the recording of core and memory speeds over time so you can check if you wish. Also AMD has released a GPU overclocking utility.

As far as your benchmark is concerned I cannot comment.

Hi guys,

My HIS Radeon 4850 (Not IceQ) has been getting REALLY hot recently, and I'm considering getting an aftermarket cooler for it. After playing 30-40 mins of CoD4, the core temp of it is in the high 90's (Celsius). I have manually turned the fan speed up from 25% to 100 using RivaTuner, and have plenty of ventillation and cooling in my Antec 902 case.
Is this too hot? Should I consider an aftermarket cooler for it, and if so, what one?

Hi Experts,

Three (3) threads on this site imply that there may be a problem interfacing a Scanjet 4850 to 64-bit Win 7. Yet, the Hewlett Packard Support & Drivers site has a driver for this combination which I just downloaded and installed. However, on opening it up on my new Dell Inspiron I see with great dismay that it will only do photo scans in .jpeg and one other format. No mention of scanning documents to MS Word and then editing the now digitized document. Does this sound right, or have I done something wrong? Do I have to throw this 3- or 4-year-old scanner out now? I use document scanning 90% of the time and photo scanning only 10% of the time.

Looking forward to some insight on this,

I did a clean install of 64 Bit Pro and it will start up fine the first time. As soon as it updates the ATI drivers, on restart it will crash as soon as the desktop appears. The card works fine on another system using Win7 RC. If I put a nVidia card into the new system it works fine with no problems what so ever.

Why is the 4850 causing the system to crash?

Try updating your chipset drivers.

Install latest video driver from safe mode, using the device manager and pointing specifically to .inf. Reboot to normal mode and see how it goes.

Device manager ---> right click standard vga, update driver software, browse, let me pick, have disk, browse. Now navigate to the .inf and double click on it. Hit ok.

A:4850 heating problems

If it has the reference, single slot cooler, it will not stay at decent temps in any case that's not very well cooled. I would recommend either a new case for your computer, or a new cooler for the card:
The cooler installation requires quite a semi-decent knowledge on heatsink installations, but is doable if you're up to it. New case is the easier option. Something like... Antec 300, (Lian-Li) Lancool PC-K58, Coolermaster Centurion 590, NZXT M59, etc would be my recommendations for a low(ish) budget.

Hey all, I've got an older 4850 that's perpetually stuck with CCC 11.2 drivers.

But now when I go to do the automatic update through CCC, it says everything installs correctly but it doesn't actually install the latest drivers. And I've uninstalled CCC and reinstalled to no avail. I'm thinking something is broken deep down but I wouldn't know where to begin to look. Any help is much appreciated.

so ive been saving my pennies these past few weeks with plans on purchasing an Asus ATI Radeon HD 4850.

I just went on newegg to check on it today, and noticed that the card i was going to get is only available as an "open box". what exactly does that mean? refurbished? returned item?

i also noticed on the "mid range buying guide" on techspot that they changed it from the 4850 to the 4870.

The 4850 was 180 before but now the open box product is like 135. Should i get that, or should i dish out the extra cash ($244) for the 4870.

My pc wont be specifically for gaming since i game mostly on my 360, but i still want to be able to play some of the latest titles on my computer.

Yes it is possible, that is the + side of crossfire you do not need the same gfx card and brand. Although you will not get a massive improvement in proformance such as 4870x2. It is a good idea, just make sure you have a PSU with enough W's and you should be fine.

Well i'm thinking of buying a new video card on Monday and i'm stuck between the 3870 and the 4850.

3870 has more memory bandwidth and has a dual slot cooler which will help with temperatures while the 4850 is way more powerful but a single slot cooler which will increase the temperatures

So which video card should i choose?

I can get the 3870 for around $126 [ASUS, comes with Company of Heroes] and i can get the 4850 for around $195 [after instant rebate, comes with scratch and win card, comes with GRID]

This means pricing is also a factor if i need to get a new PSU.

Also is my PSU powerful enough?

its a Sparkle SPI 400W with 18A on one rail and this PSU has 2 rails which basically doubles the Amps.

As long as i can hold off a new PSU till i get more money, then i'll get the 4850.

My System is in my profile


A:ATi Radeon 3870 or 4850 & Is My PSU Enough

Actually, your PSU only delivers a combined total of 29A on the +12V rails, which I wouldn't recommend for that system with either card since your PSU does not come with two PCI-E power connectors and even if it can handle the card, if you try and convert a Molex connector to a 6-pin one, you will end up drawing power from the same rail as your other components and will probably cause the PSU to fail. Get new one with at least 32A on the +12V rails combined and two PCI-E power connectors. I'd recommend the Corsair 550VX as an excellent choice.

A:4850 CrossFire bluescreen?

You only need one crossfire connector, you can use two but it wont make any difference. try moving the crossfire bridge from the 1st to second crossfire out, or the opposite of where you have it, and see if that makes a difference

I have note used this card in awhile and put it in a new build that I have put together. However when I go to switch to HDMI audio it says that my device is not compatible and that I have to use another cable. But I have used this card with the Sony TV before. I have the latest drivers and I want to see if anyone else knows how to fix this.

A:ATI 4850 and HDMI Audio

Try this.

Start> In search box type

change sound card settings


See if you have an HDMI source (the video cards hdmi audio out).

Set that as default might be your fix.

I was wondering if I should buy another 4850 and CF it as I am buying a 1080p 24" monitor. I am also visiting Taiwan for a week or so and was wondering wether I should try get one from there cheap? or will there be a problem since my 4850 is from Australia.

Also do you need to buy the same brand of 4850 to CF as I have a Gigabyte 512mb or will any brand 512mb one do.

I only have a 600W PSU, would that be enough for 4850 CF ?


(Check other stats in tab also its a Q9450 2.66ghz*)

A:Crossfire 4850 512mb

hm.... i'm not sure 600 is enough also..... you could get a 4870 to crossfire and i think they have to be the same brand but not sure...... i know some of you guys have crossfire.... so help him out

update video drivers to Catalyst 10.9

I have an Asus M2N SLI motherboard and have always been a customer of nvidia but have been considering a switch to Radeon. I like the prices and the performance of their current generation of cards.

Anyways, I was curious about whether or not performance would be effected by using the ATI card on the Nvidia mobo? I know that you can't run Crossfire on an SLI board but I do know that a single ATI PCI-E card should work just fine. However, I've been thinking about getting the 2GB Radeon 4850 which is essentially two cards in one running Crossfire no? So would I be able to use one of these cards by themselves in my SLI board or would it cause problems?


A:2GB Radeon 4850 on an SLI motherboard

You should have no problems, the controller to interface the two cards are on the board, so the SLI controller won't prevent you from running that card. Nor will that card require Crossfire alone.

A:Problem with my new 4850 ICEq Turbo

im sure the HDD has something to do with it but also sounds like a problem with drivers maybe uninstall all the video drivers take the card out then put it back in and make sure you disable the onboard video then install new drivres and should be good. also did you plug in the 6 pin power adapter?

Ok, so my computer had a 4350 that ran perfectly fine. I just dropped in the new 4850 and now the driver isn't installing properly. Everything comes up on the display, but catalyst control center doesn't work nor does going into device manager And clicking to install the drivers. I downloaded the current CCC through the amd website and set it to simply install the video driver and it finishes with a yellow question mark and and nothing has changed. I've uninstalled and reinstalled several times to no avail, but I was just able to find the old CCC disc that came with the 4350 for version 9.6. My best guess now is to uninstall CCC and reinstall it from the disc, unless anyone has a solution to this issue.

Thanks in advance

A:Problem with swap from 4350 to 4850

On device manager, change display driver to standar vga and restart the computer, once it boots into windows, go to control panel / programs and features and remove everything AMD/ATI related and restart again, this time, install latest catalyst 12.4.

Hey All -

First time poster, long time stalker.

I just put together a new system, and everything is running swimmingly except for 2 things:

1) When i boot into vista, and there is that "transition" into the login screen, there is sometimes artifacting on the transition (I.E. black blocks in random patterns on the screen). Is this a normal occurrence on load? or?

2) When i play DVD's using WMP (and the default MS Codec that comes with Vista Ultimate) i will randomly get "Slow Downs" or "Dropped Frames" which although not affecting the audio, proves very distracting. This does not happen when i use VLC.

Anyway, any and all help/advice/etc... would be greatly appreciated!

I want to put this up just encase anyone had the same problem I did and if I remember correctly there were a few people that posted the same problem on other forums The problem When I ran anything very graphically intensive like crysis furmark or when I ran a game without vsync on my PC would crash and I would just see lines on the screen or just see blackness 4850 Crashing problem solved I even got a replacement for my card and they said it was faulty and sent me a new one but it still happened just less often Solution In your bios set the pcie frequency to not auto How came to this conclusion I had just helped my friend build a PC for the first time and he had done a lot of research and as we were overclocking his CPU he mentioned that he heard you should set the pcie frequency on your motherboard to not auto or it will overclock itself during intense graphics After I had a few more crashes I remembered him mentioning this 4850 Crashing problem solved so I tried it and no more crashing not even in furmark So thanks to him I don t have to worry about crysis cashing anymore and I can finally overclock nbsp

It is a real headache when I search reviews for the same graphics card and get different benchmark results (i.e. Crysis). For example: Here on Techspot, the Nvidia 8800GTS is about the same performance-wise compared to the ATI HD 4850. But on Xbit-Labs or Tom's Hardware, one of the cards will be significantly worse.
So my question is: From experience, is the ATI Radeon HD 4850 better than the Nvidia 8800GTS/GTX ? What would be the best card to get for the $150 - $200 price range?

A:Radeon HD 4850 vs Nvidia Cards

The Radeon 4850 is in the league of nVidia 9800GTX/+ cards so yes it is better than the 8800GTS/GTX cards.

hi when i ran the re5 bench mark on windows 7 DX9 version and on xp i got full speed 60fpsbut on 7 im getting 10-15 fps. (look at the screenie) i really wanna run this with DX 10. and if the benchmark is goig slow on 7 so will the actual game. is there anyway i can fix this? im positive this is a 7 problem but other people are getting full speed.

(another question that i have )
is there a possible way that i can make the AA higher in games. in game i only see 8x when nvidia users can choose up to 16XQ.

Hi All,

Is it possible to switch from onboard graphics and 4850. Now I am using Intel 945GCC motherboard and having HD4850 graphics card. I want to use 4850 while playing games and onboard graphics card for regular usage, So that I can save some power.

No, and the power requirement for the 4850 isnt taxing anyway.

I recently built a PC and upon turning it on I found dashed lines going down the screen. I've tried replacing the monitor, cable with no luck, however when I replace the graphics card it does seem to work. Before I sent off for a replacement for the HD 4850 I was wondering if there was any known fault with that motherboard.
Secondly, even with the other card I put in, the 8800 GTS, installing windows seems to go really slow. The only thing I can think of is the fact that the power supply thats being used on has the 4 pin ATX_12V connector not the 8. However this shouldn't make a difference as it only has an E8400 in it. Also, the 8800GTS has a 6 pin powerc connector, not 8.

The only things I can think of is
1) Power supply being faulty, or not working because its not the 8 pin 12V connector.
2) Graphics card faulty

Any ideas?


A:Problem with GA-EP45-UD3P and HD 4850

Does the 8800GT have the latest drivers installed, or is it running off the ATI drivers?

I thought all PCI-E power connectors were 6 pin. or possibly (?)

Lines running through the screen are sort of classic bad video card thingys

You shouldn't need the 8 pin CPU plug the the E8400, it's mostly for the quads. (65 watts C2D vs 120Watts draw for the quad core).

I don't think there are any issues associated with that board, my goodness everybody's got one. (at least the UD3R)

Like the title above says i need something more powerful than the xfx radei HD 4850 1GB but not to expensive, Sure it still chugs a long fine but lacks newer dx features, I only payed $130 when i bought that card a cpl years ago but I'm looking for something cheaper than can beat it in performance. That and ati just put that card in legacy support Model HD-485X-ZDFC rev.2.1 if you all want to look up the specs has double lifetime warranty one of the reason i bought it, Had it replace by xfx once when capacitors started leaking in an older revision of the card.

A:Need something more powerful than xfx radeon hd 4850 1GB card

well a 6770 is about 100 bucks new and would be a mild improvement in overall performance.
As long as you stay under the 100 dollar mark there's not a ton of options.

It may be possible to find a 5850 somewhere in that price range and it's about twice as fast.
It's also a tad older so the possibility of finding one in your price range gets slightly better.

Sadly 100 bucks just isn't a lot for a video card these days.

Visit Intel's website and let it scan your system. Install any chipset/motherboard drivers it may have newer.

Then install the video driver again.

Use safe mode plus networking if you have to.

A:Horizontal lines with Radeon HD 4850

Can you explain a little more about your system. What video card was used previously? Which drivers are you running? Which type of monitor, LCD I assume? What resolution are you running?

Faint scrolling lines could be from some type of electrical interference.
