    Well I have bad news... Wasnt able to upgrade to w7, so had to do clean install back up all files, and reinstall everything ..
    loads loads of work, and all for nothing..........

    Same issue happened after I installed amd catalyst center, together with driver update.. Wasnt happing for about day when I was running newly installed w7 without installing catalyst, GPU drivers yet, but afterwards didnt let me wait too long for it to happen.

    Im totally clueless now. What comes to mind is that maybe it is MB slot as we thought at first. My old 9600GS went, and possibly it screwed MB PCIe slot?
    other than that.... I have no idea what to do.

    Could be the slot, I have lost both slot and GPU at the same time more than once.

    However I was thinking about it and there are reasons to believe, that its not MB slot:

    - When 9600gs died, I was running certain time on 7200gs which didnt give me any kind of errors, all was running ok, this was for about 3 - 6 days if I remember well.
    - I was running for about a day or two without installed drivers for my new 7750, and all worked ok = no errors. Leads me to believe its drivers after all. But then same thing was happening with different os and different card before.. (vista / 9600gs)
    - This kind of error I'm recieving is quite common if you google just name of this topic. I've seen you've been solving very same thing with other guy here before too. Would be mad to think that all of those people are having this very same or similar issue because of their MB slots are bad...


    You gave me link early in this thread on catalyst center, and drivers for new card. Even tho it looks like its precisely for my card.. Anyway Is there any other set of drivers I could try to install?

    Is there something that could be set wrongly in bios maybe?

    You should only use drivers from the manufacturer's website.

    I think we check this before, but if there is a way to disable the onboard video in the bios that should be done.

    Yeah I think so, will check all bios later on again. Other reason is I remember changing one another thing there, it was before buying new card I believe, so will check and see what it was and what it does.

    Btw drivers were downloaded from link you provided in your second post in this thread. First in the list of downloads for windows 7 64bit from that site.

    Nothing much to change in bios. I have options to choose primary video card:
    and its either:
    -onboard
    -PCI
    -PCIx1
    -PCIx16

    I've set PCI now after running at PCIx16 for a while, dunno which option should be set, and whats the difference, I only know it shouldnt be onboard..

    The drivers that came on the disk didn't work either, right?
    I would try the video card in another computer if you have one.
    If it works in another PC I would tend to think it's the mobo.

    Was getting same thing with drivers from DVD.
    I do have another older PC, thats where 7200GS is placed. I dont know whether it would be compatible with 7750, but guess it should. Can try this too.

    As long as it has a PCIe slot it should work.

    Ok so I have tried that, and its the CARD!! ffs Its newly bought one... Now questions are:

    - Could it be my MB slot that screwed new card, as well as it did with the old one?
    - Im now running on 7200GS that would mean this card could be getting same issue sooner or later. (till now it isnt)
    - Is there a way to find out if MB GPU slot is fine or not?
    -Its also possible that its reduction. Because I have VGA monitor and card came with another port so there was reduction (dont know name of that port).
    -OR drivers are doing this on both computers, though I used original ones from DVD, then those from website you provided. Tried on 2 systems, vista and w7 64bit both.. so dont know.
    Card will be probably sent back to seller to fix or change it. Meanwhile I wonder what I could do about finding out if motherboard is fine.

    Could be mobo or could be power supply or you just got a bad card.
