hi, i recently got a new graphics card its a palit nvidia geforce gtx 680 jetstream with 3 fans with 4gb dedicated memory. i didn't uninstall the drivers from my old amd radeon hd 6850 until after i installed the new graphics card, i had 2 go into safemode to delete the ati folder though, and i recently used a program called driver sweeper to try and clean the rest of the drivers cause i thought that was what was crashing it. also if it helps i had a very basic graphics card before the amd: a nvidia geforce 405.
the problem is that after some time when im playing a game, sometimes the monitor light flashes (no signal). its very annoying cause unlike a bsod i cant look for an error. i also have other errors sometimes, before it red screened a lot, and 1 white screen occured. freezes happened a lot too (freezes had a weird static like sound). im not sure if the problem is my graphics card or the game, but it didnt happen on the old graphics card. the game im playing is apb reloaded, the freezes problem doesn't happen a lot now ever since i disabled the game launching vivox voice service, but the random monitor no signal thing is happening a lot. when this happens, pretty much everything gets disabled, like im in a skype call and i cant hear anyone. the only way i can recover it is to hold the power button down till it turns off and reboot.
im using the latest driver i think, version 310.90 and it ses no updates available. im not sure if the issue is that the graphics card is getting too hot although i doubt it because it has 3 huge fans and i havent seen it go any higher than 67 degrees c. i recently removed my second monitor because someone said that might be causing a problem. i have realtek hd audio if that helps, cause someone said that might cause a problem on another forum i looked at.
also id like to add that the only game ive played recently is apb reloaded, and gta iv (although i only played gta iv for about an hour, apb reloaded ive been playing all day!)
if anyone can help id be really grateful, if u need any more information please tell me because i really want this fixed. thanks everyone!!!!!!!
