Potential Driver Issue, possibly a Bad Card. I have the same issue on my HD 3850. Try amping up the fan-speed, heat may be the issue. If not you probably have a dead card.

 

Good luck.

System Spec: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600, ATi Radeon HD 3850 w/ WLB-X One of a Kind, 8GB DDR2 (4x2) 800MHz, Insignia 450W, Dell Optiplex 745 Chassis

I would first try reinstalling the latest drivers for your graphics card and see it that fixes this issue although if it does not then the most likely cause is going to be possible hardware level damage that has occurred to the card. In that case you can try to replace it yourself although that may not be easy and without guarantees or could send it off to a professional which would most likely charge a fee for their service although should get your card working again without the issue.

Hope this information post was helpful  ?,
