Hey guys,

I have a quite old Radeon HD 7850 card here but it's giving me a headache since I'm using it with Windows 10.

Here you can see the problem in Need for Speed Underground:


The problems are: Screen flickering, especially in Windows when switching applications, tabs or even hovering over buttons etc., crashes, graphic glitches and screen freezes.

I tried a lot of stuff.
Heaven 4.0 goes through on all interfaces (Dx11, Dx9 & OpenGL) without any flickering, crashes, freezes in the tests. Flickering occurs only at the loading screen.
3DMark2001 goes through perfectly.
3DMark03 goes through perfectly, besides the CPU Test. There I have flickering again.
GPU temp was always around 65 degrees.

All other components besides the GPU in that pc are totally fine and I can say for sure that those are working perfectly.

Can somebody tell me, what might be problem?

Does the problem crop up only on NFS:Undergorund or do other titles exhibit the same issue? Where did you source the game(s) from?
