strange problem. just turned on my pc and in msi afterburner my gpu is showing 100% gpu usage at idle on desktop and web browsing. temp sitting steady at 93 with strange artifacts cross taskbar etc. however when i try to capture desktop the artifacts dont show. anyone have any ideas what could be causing this???
every time you reseat the card problem get worst i would test that card on another system and do the same for the monitor and if they both work without artefact then there is something with the motherboard pci-e slot. does this board have another pci-e slot for test ?
catalyst would be the very latest one as the card was only bought on friday also would this explain why at certain points in games fps drop to 1-2fps for couple of seconds then jump back up to 55-60 fps
the old card work and you got good picture then it is time to rma that new card 93 c is to high for temp adding one thing does the fan spin on the graphic card check if it is connected to the card pcb .
will try that just now but why would that work if it was working perfect for couple of days before hand?? strange thing is msi afterburner has gpu usange at 92-99% while gpuz has it at 1% both have a temp of 77c
then if you found one i would do a full test without network connected on all the files i use avast free and with you could do a virus scan at start up before windows load,also use malwarebytes free for spyware http://www.malwarebytes.org/ and glary utilities free for cookies and temp files and some registery cleaning .
