weird problem with 250 gts

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I am having a weird problem with my 250 gts. While the computer is idle ie: browsing the web, the computer will lock up and the screen will be all checkered boxed I guess would be the best way to describe it.

The last time it happened was today where it did it twice (pics below)
The clocks of the card was 790 core, 1896 shader, and 1235 memory. The temp was at 47C when the computer crashed.

he means it needs to be baked.

looks like artifacting. try the card on lower clocks. maybe that'll help

I have just reset my clocks to stock. The thing I am wondering is why this never happens while playing games. I can play TW2 or GTA IV and so on for hours at a end with no problem.

I reinstalled windows and I thought the problem went away, that is until 2 minutes ago when it happened again, with stock clocks (pics below)
Now the question is should I just rma it, or should I try to bake it in the oven?
