  1. Hello. I recently bought Club 3D ATI Radeon HD 6870 to replace my old GTX 460 and yesterday I first encountered the infamous Grey screen of death. And today the black one. It seems to only occur when watching videos from Youtube or IMDB. I have the latest drivers and haven't overclocked or anything. When this happens I can still hear the video playing and pause / resume it.

    Also, I thought this was only HD 5xxx problem :/ I'm so confused right now.

    What are your complete computer specs, and what version of Windows are you running? Since you went from an nvidia card to an AMD/ATI card, you may still have nvidia drivers interfering with the ATI drivers
