i have been having some issues with my graphic card Nvidia GeForce GTX560 Ti when i play high performance games (sometimes even low performance) where my screen goes black and in sleep mode after a random set of time. the computer is nonresponsive and only thing i can do is to manually restart the computer. internet and other things works just fine. only in games i get this error.
what are your temps while you are gaming...you can find them by downloading and running a program called gpuz while you game...also what are the specs of the rest of your computer? CPU/RAM/MOBO/POWERSUPPLY......was this always an issue with this card or did it just start happening....you can try and update your drivers and see if that helps too....but it sounds like a gpu that is not getting enough power or is overheating to me
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600K CPU @ 3.40GHz. 3.70 GHz
RAM 8.2 GB DDR3
windows 7 64 bit
Nvidia GeForce GX 560 Ti
i have had a problem with this type of card in the past and i took it to the repair shop and they said it was a fabricators error. Now the exact same thing is happening again.
drivers are up to date.
When im gaming its usually around 60 degrees celcius. but when i try and play high performance games i see using GPU(or CPU cant remember) tweak that my CPU was at 99% and temperature was going over 84 degrees celcius before i manually close the game to prevent overheating.
it is on adaptive. and ive seen other posts where it was suggested to put it to max insted. i have tried this and also changing the specific game that i trying to run also to max. but it didnt do anything for me
im very noobish when it comes to BIOS changes also the fact that i have to turn off the pc everytime i have to check something. so if you can be as specific, as you possibly can, to what im looking for that would be awesome
I don't see how that is going to tell you what the BIOS settings are, you need to boot into BIOS and take a look. If you can't or won't do that then you are going to have to start swapping parts around, do you have access to another PC that you can test parts in?
