    hi folks,

    I’ve managed to re-create the 4850 freeze. This works for me, I want to check if it works for all of you.

    Test 1)
    Windows, Bluetooth Mac Keyboard paired to computer (doesn’t seem to work in windows, so also using USB mouse and keyboard), GPU stress test – crash in 5 minutes (restart)

    Test 2)
    Windows, USB keyboard and mouse, run GPU stress test – no crash for 2 hours of running

    Test 3)
    Whilst running Test 2 – paired computer to Bluetooth Mac Keyboard – crash within 10-15 minutes.

    Test 4) repeat Test 1- same result

    Test 5) repeat Test 2 (running)

    Does this work for anyone else ?


    EDIT: the moment I posted this tread my PC froze, unfortunately I had bluetooth disabled --- afraid it's back to the drawing board :( :(
