I have a problem with my GPU. When i enter a game, sometimes it frezes for some seconds and there r lots of glitches. And sometimes it goes outta color, when i quit the game there r lots of dots on the screen. They wont go away unless i reset the system.
This is my spec:
Try a stress test to duplicate the problem to isolate if it's hardware or software. Furmark, 3DMark06, etc.... if you get artifacts on these tests then for sure your GPU is damaged.
Also, underclock it by 15% using EVGA Precision. If the problem goes away, then you know that your GPU is struggling to run at its factory or stock settings.
In the meantime install the latest drivers.
I used 3dMark Vantage 22.214.171.124 and the same thing happened again during the benchmark. My driver is up-to-date too. But after some secs i got this message: "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered". I ran the benchmark in underclocked AND normal mode, both times it happened. Is there any software to ensure that the GPU is faulty or ok. Some kinda test like HDD test. I dont have anyone to swap the gpu on his/her system
Here ink that helped me when I had a problem with my GTX260 http://www.nvlddmkm.com/
Just go through it and see how you go :-))
Thanx dude I changed Performance Manage Mode in nVidia cp to "prefer maximum performance"
AND I ran a stability test with FurMark 1.8.2 and there were nearly no artifacts on the screen. I was like WOW!!! *very happy, was havin' a party in my belly* )
BUT when i ran GTA EFLC, the same * happened again ((
I ran some other games, the same .................
and most of the solution on that site were regarding Vista, I hav W7 x86
