GPU Problem

Hi, yesterday I had a problem with the graphics card. Suddenly a 16 bit color showed in my monitor and changed the resolution to 1024 x 768, by default was 1680 x 1050. I restart my computer after this and i didnt changed something, i did uninstall/install with several updates but nothing change. When i choose the NVidia Control Panel settings keep getting message "display not attached to a GPU. There is a solution to the problem except to buy a new graphics card?

Thank you very much for any answer.

  1. Hardware :

    GPU: Gigabyte GT 9800
    CPU: AMD 64 x2 6000+
    Memory: SuperTalent 5GB 800Mhz
    Mobo: Gigabyte GA-M720-US3
  2. did you update the GPU drivers?
  3. does gpu-z see the card?? have you check that the card fan is moving?? if it dust bound or failed the gpu could have over heated. if gpu-z cant read the card right then the card may have died.

    smorizio, correct me if I am wrong here, but, if the card died would it display anything at all?

    He is still getting 16 bit color and a low resolution.

    To me that sounds more like settings/driver issues.
  5. I will give a test with GPU-Z and i will post the result guys ty btw..

    The fan card is moving , i cleaning my tower every 3-4 month for dusts.

    Here is the result of GPU-Z:


  7. What happens when you attempt to move the resolution higher?
  8. There is no another setting for higher resolution the top res is on 1024 ;/
  9. At this point I would say test the card in another computer :(

    Is that possible?
  10. Yes, i will do it tomorrow..
  11. I tried to put the card in another tower and did it again the same. I keep getting put on the old PC. So I go for new hardware...
  12. It really does sound to me like driver issues, for example I can't get past 640x480 or something without GPU drivers, since you were uninstalling things it was most likely the culprit.

    Go onto Nvidia's site, find the latest driver for your card, and then install it.
