Hey, Mike2012 here. I think my GPU is dying.

It still runs games perfectly and up to recently, I haven't had this problem.

But for now for some reason, I'm getting this glitch where a game will freeze in menus. This only occurs in menus and not actual gameplay.

For instance Resident Evil 5. I was playing this a couple days ago and never had this problem. Today, I tried to play it, but it froze and the screen went black. Like I said I was playing this a couple days ago and never had this problem.

It suddenly started happening in other games like Mass Effect 3 too. The game will play just as well as it usually does, when I get to menu's I get a freeze then a black screen. This is recent and hasn't happened to me when I played the game.

But yes, I only get this black screen in game. There's no driver crash or anything like that, just a black screen and it only occurs IN MENU'S not in-game.

Temperatures are normal too and the temperatures never go above 60c.

So is my GPU dying?

Check the GPU Voltage in the BIOS, it might have changed, (somehow).
Set it to Auto, if set anything else...
