  3. Bizarre text glitch on AMD card?
3 years ago#1
Just built a new computer a few days ago, and my video card finally arrived today (7990). I was previously using the integrated Haswell video without any issue, but since switching to the card, I am getting a weird glitch in very specific instances. I figure it must be either the card, drivers, or a catalyst setting, since I wasn't getting the glitch before.

Whenever I enter text into the youtube search bar (and less often, a google search bar), the first 1-2 characters will cause these strange black boxes. After 3 letters have been entered, it goes away.

OS: Windows 8 (ugh... for now)
Card: Radeon 7990
Drivers: Catalyst 13.8 beta
Browser: Firefox 23

No overclock or changes to default catalyst settings. Thanks for the help.

Try disabling hardware acceleration in your browser.

Does it happen in other browsers? Did you try it in safe mode? Is it ONLY in youtube?

Thank you for the quick replies everyone. Disabling hardware acceleration fixed the issue. Just for posterity sake, the problem wasn't occurring in IE10, only Firefox.
