AMD HD 5830 Card Delayed

"A last minute issue discovery has pushed back the release date for AMD's HD 5830 graphics card."

Search News

According to DigiTimes, graphics card manufacturers have reported problems during the validation of the HD 5830 graphics card reference design.  Apparently an issue with the circuit design has caused the makers' testing platforms to throw errors.  AMD has thus decided to take the boards for their own investigation.

In response to this report, AMD has stated that the cards were in the hands of their customers for normal batch testing and took the no comment route for the reported issue.  They also took the time to stress that no ATI cards currently on the market have any issues.

Originally set for release earlier this week, makers now expect the cards to go out no earlier than next month.

Following a recent system upgrade, including reinstallation of Win7 and a stable OC, I am encountering constant crashes with Firefox. Almost every session crashes despite several attempts to uninstall/reinstall software in hope of fix. Desperately need help, it's getting so bad that I'm even considering IE8 !

Have you tried other browser?
And have you installed Java yet?

does it occur when starting firefox in "safe mode" ?

I always recommend giving CCleaner a good ol' run for any issues like this

I'd give ccleaner a run, some good anti spyware such as superantispyware/malwarebytes and spybot s&d, then a good antivirus (whatchu got?) such as eset and errrr, then probably best to uninstall any addons - but you probably dont have any due to reinstalling firefox

@ Freak, yeah it happens at stock.
@ Zak, tried IE8 (still happens), got Java too.
@mrapoc, it happens in safe mode too, got comodo, will try CCleaner.
Just turned off NVidia First Packet software and so far no crashes, fingers crossed !

Comodo went down hill lately - try uninstalling that next if necessary

Have you tried to reinstall because sometimes it won't work since you reinstall. Even though have installed many add-ons so these are also effect it.
According to me you should install the Quick Heal Antivirus and after reinstall the firefox so whatever problem will create Quick Heal suggest you the solution.

If that comodo has a anti phishing tool, that might be the cause.

First Packet was the problem. Not a big fan of NVidia Control panel.
