This isn’t OpenGL related, but I’ve been having problems with my Radeon 5800.
Sometimes if I shutdown my computer and restart, the monitor remains blank. I have to leave the computer off for a while before it will boot normally. In Windows, I’ve also had problems with blue screens and a couple times I’ve seen a message that my graphics driver stopped working. This has happened when all I’m running is internet explorer. I have the latest driver.
Is this a problem with the driver or is the card messed up? Is there a way to determine if I have a hardware problem?
