Pls Help! Vid/Mbd


Recommended Posts

Sigh.. I'm sorry to unload such a huge file of system information/logs/specs etc but I'm at my wits end. At this point, I don't even know if its hardware, meaning my Video Card(s) or the Motherboard, I really don't believe it is Software related at all. (Combo Fix and all system report logs, system spec logs, blue screen reports, etc are in attached file)

About 1.5 yrs ago I purchased a MSI nVidia GeForce GTX 560Ti 1024 MB GDDR5 and the card seemed great but less than a month of using it, I noticed major graphic lag. It didn't matter if I was gaming, doing my graphic design work and/or just browsing the web (if sites where heavy graphic).

It eventually got to the point where it seemed all system resources and memory resources where completely drained from the system. I would have to reboot - Then everything was fine again, till it was drained again.

Eventually I replaced the MSI w/ a SAPPHIRE Ultimate Radeon HD 6670 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card (100326UL) - I've included the spec's below. Long and behold I am having "graphic lag" issues again, but different.

For some reason, I have to always reboot with this graphic card or watching films, gaming, etc bog down. 2 - I started getting every other day if I didn't reboot.. memory core dumps(blue screens) of Video Hardware Failure (copied some from WER for you, see below).

I never use the disks to install drivers, always get them from the manufacturers web site. But I ended up redownloading them, and completely uninstalled all drivers/software related to the Vid card.

Since Ive done that, I now get the following every time the command prompt window for the AMD Catalyst Control Center loads: "Windows cannot find C:\Program Files(x86)\AMD AVT\bin\kdbsync.exe .Make sure you typed the name correctly,and try again." And I am still receiving a lot of graphical lag.

I do not believe this to be software related, everything on the system works properly - As I stated just seems like the grpahical memory is drained from the PC, reboot and all is well again. Is there any way of testing whether it is my crap luck with Video cards or the motherboard? With like stress tests or something?

In order to provide more details to help others help you please run the following scanner and attach back both the logs.

Your logs show a wealth of information but in a bit odd layout for details.

Download DDS from one of the locations below and save to your Desktop



Temporarily disable any script blocker if your Anti-Virus/Anti-Malware has it.

How To Temporarily Disable Your Anti-virus, Firewall And Anti-malware Programs

Once downloaded you can disconnect from the Internet and disable your Ant-Virus temporarily if needed.

Then double click dds.scr or dds.com to run the tool, on Vista or Win 7 right click and select Run as administrator

Click the Run button if prompted with an Open File - Security Warning dialog box.

A black DOS console should open and run for a moment.

    When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:
  1. DDS.txt
  2. Attach.txt

  • Save both reports to your desktop
  • Please include the following logs in your next reply: DDS.txt and Attach.txt
    You can ignore the note about zipping the Attach.txt file in most cases.

It is a scanner that will list software installed, browser helper objects, event log entries, etc that is normally used to check for possible software conflicts or malware infections.

You can run it and see what it does pretty quickly. If you view our Hijackthis log forum or other posts or search it on the Internet you'll find this tool used many times.

No, nothing wrong I'm just busy and was hoping it was just something software related and maybe someone else would assist you, but you've got quite a mess going on there and we'll need to use some scanners to help us work on this but since we don't work using scanners in this forum you should probably open a ticket on the help desk and ask for me and I'll see if I can get you squared away or not.

I opened a ticket requesting you, and supplied the link to this thread. If I may ask, what sort of "you've got quite a mess going on there and we'll need to use some scanners to help us work on this"? I'm all set to work this out but I have scanned and rescanned, with multiple scanners.
