Hey everyone,

since serveral weeks I have some graphic problems. The borders of the windows look sometimes strange and if I use programs which need graphic power -for examples games-, the gui crashes completely. The screen gets black and pops up again after a few seconds and I cannot use the mouse any more. Via CTRL+ALT+F1 I am still able to log into a shell after a few minutes and reboot for example.
"dmesg" then shows me repeatingly the following:

Code:

radeon 0000:00:01.0: GPU lockup CP stall for more than 10000msec

I am using an AMD A8-3850 with the onboard graphic AMD Radeon HD 6550D. My desktop environment is Gnome 3.4.1 and my xorg-server version is 1.13.0-r1.

Does anyone know how to solve this?

Have a look at /var/log/Xorg.0.log or /var/log/Xorg.0.log.old as well. If you see any EE errors, post that file as well. (Since you mention window issues I presume you're running an X server...) This could be any number of issues, from an X server problem to a hardware issue. More information is needed to help narrow it down.

GPU lockup can be a problem in kernel drm. Try upgrading to a newer kernel.

I've updated so I'm using 3.7.1 now but the problem still occurs.

After a crash of the GUI I looked into this log. There are indeed EE errors.
This is a shorted version of the whole number of EE errors. For more see http://pastebin.com/47ZRcuTZ

It seems to be a bug of the radeon driver.

Using fglrx helped for me.
