Graphics card crash

When I play GW2 on my computer which I built a few weeks ago the game will crash and the screen will turn solid white, pink, or teal with a sound loop and won't respond until I manually shut it down.

  1. Could you give us your spec's and your PSU brand and watts? Plus give us what you have done leading up to the crash and after.
  2. Is the OP asking for help or declaring to TH that his PC doesnt work right? Peopl eneed to spend some time and read the damn stickies that tell them how to ask for help.

    Intel i5 2500k 3.3 GHz
    ASUS Z77 Sabertooth
    Western Digital 500GB HDD
    Corsair Vengeance 2x4GB DDR3 1600
    ECS NGTX560TI-1GPI-F1 GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit
    COOLER MASTER Silent Pro RS850-AMBAJ3-US 850W
    CORSAIR H80 (CWCH80) High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
    Haven't overclocked it yet

    I really haven't known about the crash since Friday because thats the day the beta weekend started all I really did was update the drivers after the crashes I tried using older drivers but it still crashed. I then thought maybe it was over heating but it crashed at about 56C.
  4. with the sabertooth there three bios updates. 905//1015 and the new one 120x. have you used the bios flashback on the mb to up rev the mb bios. one is for cpu code the other two are for ram updates. check with cpu-z that the ram is running at the right speed and timing. if you want 1600 speed you have to use xmp profile in ai. also there a setting for pci bus speed for the video cards. ie pci 3.0 pr pci 2.0 or pci 1.0 speed. i dont know if that be grayed out on your sb i have it on my mb becuase im using an ib chip i have mine set and pci 2.0 speed from auto on my 550ti. i would also check your fan speed profile for the video card and with msi afterburner see that the fan will speed up..if the fan does not ramp with heat..the gpu can overheat even at low temps. the 550-560ti base fan speeds is 30-40 percent.

    Thanks for posting your spec's. What program are you using to check your temps? Is there another card you could swap it out just to see if it ma be your card or MOBO? I don't think it is your PSU.

    Even though it is in the middle of the do not by list it is ok. Have you tried other games to see if the same problem happen's in them? I am going to link you to a stress test to do a burn in.

    If the problem is with your card this will cause it to crash. Also just in case check your ram, try one stick at a time and I will link you to memtest86+ as well. Let us know the out come and good luck.
