  1. Very strange. Install GPU-z and check your card temperatures, voltages and clocks to see if anything looks wrong.

    nothing wrong.... :ouch:
    temp is 37 degree with 21% fan speed without any activity at vddc 0.825
    and with crysis running on max setting it shows 99 % gpu activity with temp 57 with 45 % fan speed at vddc 1.075..
    is it acceptable????
    is ther problem in gpu?? or any prob with my mobo..?
    its gigabyte GA-880GM-UD2H with bios ver F8...
  3. All looks fine.

    Does the problem occur if you use sleep or hibernate instead of shutting down?

    By the way, I did some more digging and found similar problems to yours:

    It does seem to point towards a faulty GPU. You should probably return it while it is still under warranty.

    haven't tried yet but it only happens when i boot pc after being shutdown for more then 1 to 2 hour....then i boot it..it shows lines and immediately i restart pc..then it works fine..
  6. So it's a cold start problem then. Most search results I found indicate a faulty card under such circumstances.
  7. I totaly agree with Herr_Koos if you bought it just 2 days ago it should be easy to return it back and get a new one ,, even if you aren't very sure about the issue
