Thread: GPU dying?????
09-14-2011, 04:05 AM #1
So my GTX 560Ti starting acting up about a week ago when I was playing dead island and tf2. the driver would crash 3 or 4 times during gameplay and the get stuck in "half clock safe mode" and then run without crashing. At first I thought it was the drivers so I did a clean install of the 280's and still was having the problem. So I tried the 275 and 270 drivers and still no luck so I'm thinking the card is dying. Any thoughts?
I was also getting artifacts everyone was Black

gotta ask the required questions.
Power connected properly?
is it seated?
did the cat/dog pee in it?
that's the MSI windforce right? are you sure the heatsink is properly tightened? I took mine off when I got it just to have a look under it. the screws seemed on the "edge" of loose.
check your temps. and does it artifact while at idle? (my gtx280 does if folding)The path to universal understanding starts here: Say what you mean, and mean what you say.

That seems like a safe temp. if the heatsink was loose it would be higher. are you sure the power plugs are tight?The path to universal understanding starts here: Say what you mean, and mean what you say.
