I'm not sure if my 1-year-old GTS 250 is dead; hopefully someone can tell me if it really is or not.
Sequence of events (recent):
-Took it out of slot to organize wires and put it back.
-Tried to play games (GTAIV, Bad Company 2, Resident Evil 5) and all of them ended in a 'stopped working' event.
-Got a blue screen saying check for graphics drivers.
-Updated the drivers from 260 to 266.
-Turned off my comp.
-Turned it on, but my monitor says 'No signal.' However, everything else is good and I can even hear the Win7 welcome sound. Even the fan on the card is on.
-Turned it off.
-Refitted the card into place. Made sure the power was connected to it.
-Tried my system with an older card (8600GTS) and it works. Haven't gotten a blue screen.
Over the past few days I overclocked my CPU from 2.9 to 3.2 but made sure not to mess around with GPU settings.
I got 2 or 3 'Display Driver has stopped working' windows today.
So what's up with my system? Or what can I do to check for the root of the problem?
