My PC used to play games at the MAX graphics level(Nvidia GeForce GTX 560).. I restarted my PC to sleep, and when I woke up and later played a game, the game had to run on low. Is this a graphics issue or did my PC get damaged?
UPDATE: I have also ran 3dmark11 and the fps were a lot worse than they were before I restarted my PC...
Funny you mention that ARes_26, I had the same issue the other night while I was playing COD MW3. I have SLI gtx 560's and all of sudden, my frame rate dropped, at first, I though my connection was bad, which turned out wasn't the best for some reason, so I launched Skyrim. Load my game running like 11 frames, I usually get 60. I restarted my PC, the problem went away and hasn't came back since, but it was weird. Last thing I did was update to latest drivers 301.
I shut off my computer every night to sleep... One night, my graphic just got crappy.. Restarting my PC worked great, but I turn my PC off every night so I can't see why that helped... Anyway, thanks very much to all the replies! Hopefully anyone with this problem will see this page.
