Graphics card failure or something else? (attached pictures) Tags: Radeon Graphics Cards Corsair Graphics Last response: February 12, 2013 2:21 PM in Graphics & Displays Share elwoodit February 7, 2013 2:12:37 PM Hi all, I have the following system: Intel Q6600 quad core ATI HD4850 Corsair 650W Corsair 4GB ram I left for a few days, and got back to this... I am going to remove each stick of ram to see if it's something that is causing issues. I'll also double check the power cable to the graphics card... Any suggestions....please....?

Consider trying with different GPU. p.s Try Video memory test, you can find it in Hiren's boot cd.

Could be worth borrowing one from a friend to check. Related resources graphics card problem or something else - Forum Is my graphics card dying?

The two lights on the card turn on normally... I have no one to borrow a card off of, what would be best quality/price replacement?? I've looked around really quickly and found the GTX650 Ti for ~150euro need to resolve this QUICK! J_E_D_70 a b U Graphics card February 7, 2013 4:23:09 PM That would work - three tiers up from your current card. Step below that but cheaper would be a 7770. If you have spare thermal paste (or can buy some for a few euro), you could attempt to bake it. I am NOT recommending it, just throwing it out there. Give it a google if interested. elwoodit February 8, 2013 1:45:04 AM So far I have narrowed the replacement to a few option: GTX650 Ti 2GB Gigabyte OC - 150 euro Gainward GeForce GTX 650 Ti with CUDA 2GB - 160 euro GIGABYTE GTX660 2GB OC - 185 euro any ideas? elwoodit February 12, 2013 2:21:48 PM ok so I'm very close to pulling the trigger. Honestly at the ~150euro price range I can find a GTX650 TI 2gb or a HD7850 1gb...what do you guys recommend? Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources Graphics Card or something else?
