Need help ! My VGA randomly stopped working and recovered

Short story, about 2 weeks ago, i change my VGA from gtx 550ti to gtx 650. and when i play games, sometimes the VGA stopped working and recovered by itself, but the program that i open when that happen, will always hang.
i dunno whats the problem, because when i using gtx 550ti, my computer doing fine, no such problem like this.

And i wonder whats the problem.
i already using the latest driver update, even clean my pci ex slot on my mobo (my friend suggest this) but none of them working.

do u guys know whats the problem?

i'll appriciate every answer that u give :wahoo: :wahoo:

  1. As you have installed a new hardware it is always good to have a look at the Bios, and see if something changed there.

    If all is OK in the bios, and since you´re using the latest driver update, and the problem wasn´t there before, then the only thing that comes to mind is that you may have got a faulty GPU.

    If so, then you should contact your card manufacturer for a RMA.
  2. Can you give us your full system specs?
