I'm posting here for first time not sure where this thread belongs.
Anyway here's the problem:
My PC works fine for a while like an hour or so then the Nvidia Graphics starts crashing as in screen turns black and then it returns under few seconds saying the driver recovered, eventually it becomes frequent and the display doesn't return and PC restarts.
The Nvidia control panel, EVGA OC Scanner, shows artifacts after this happens ( it doesn't before),
My system specs are:
Intel Corei3 530
4GB DDR3 kingston 1333Mhz RAM (2 Sticks)
320GB Seagate Hard Drive
Asus p7p55d-e lx
Nvidia GTX 550Ti (Nvidia 301.42)
CM GX 750 Watts PSU
Oh and heres how it started, I began copying stuff from one partition to other and when I started copying a huge folder than it started.
Here's what I tried so far:
changed drivers from older to newer to older and now, newer
reseated the card and used other 6pin rail
Thanks for the reply
The temps of the GPU are 40-50C in Idle state
Bad GPU? but I ran 3dvantage and and that showed no error but performed as it should with 550. No I don't have any card at hand for now.
Hmmm...heating issue ok I will remove the side panel and place a house fan nearby to see.. I will report back
Starting off it seems I was wrong....if GPU was the problem is the problem it should have given errors today too. which I can tell is not the case, I ran Furmark burn-in test for around 1 hour, result nothing it worked fine, then I ran 3dvantage until last Feature test and still nothing.
