constant vpu recover


OSNN Newbie
Hi i recently bought a few upgrades to my computer. This inclues a ati radeon x850xt pe pci-e. After putting together my computer i find everything working perfectly. However after installing drivers for my new graphics card, i constantly get vpu recover messages and sometimes a automatic reboot. I have tried old and new drivers from both ati and omega but it does not solve the problem.

please help. thx

is it OC'd?

sound slike it is gettng hot to me - what about taking side off your case and directing a fan there? Let us know if you have any temp readouts too....

Be a shame if you are stuck with a bad GFX card, what says others?

Turn off that option and see how things run in the cp there is a way to remove that feature I thing I remember from my ATI days .

no its not oc'd the temp is running at about 30-35c. I cannot turn off the option because when i do all i get is the blue screen and a reboot.

could be i am gonna head over to a mates house and try his power supply.but mine should be fine its 450w. i'll keep you guys posted any other suggestions?

It is not the wattage rating that matters it is the +12V amperage for any newer system.

With an 850XT you need dual +12V rails rated at 17A each or higher. It should say ATX 2.01 or 2.01 on the power supply if it has dual +12V rails.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
