Did you RMA for the exact same card from the same Brand?

This error is usually caused by GPU and most of the time it's driver related and it happens to both AMD and Nvidia cards. For Nvidia, you should be on 280.26 driver which is not a beta driver but final release currently.

Windows fresh install and check for all updates are current which should be the obvious check.

Check in ' Start ' / 'Control Panel' / 'System' / ' Device Manager ' - there should be no caution signs anywhere.

That issue can be caused possibly RAM as well on occasion.

One way to rule out it's possibly not RAM. Put in one stick at a time in slot A1, B1, C1. (Counting from the CPU it's the first, third, and sixth slot).

Try each stick in each slot one at a time and boot up. You should be allowed to boot with each stick in each of the three slots.

Then try the second stick go though the same process and then the third RAM stick again in each slot.

This is tideous but will rule out one of your RAM sticks is possible bad or going. As one of three RAM sticks bad can cause this possibly and or also check if one of your RAM slots itself is going bad on your mother board.

By ruling this out it's process of elimination and something tech support will ask you do before allowing for RMA.


Hmmm let's try/check a couple of things.

Right click anywhere on your desktop for pop up. Choose Nvidia Display Panel. Under '3D Setting' - Go to 'Set Phsyx Congfiguration'. Choose 'Automatic'.

Under 'Display' go to 'Change resolution' - Under resoltuion check if your monitor resolution is correct and 60Hz Refresh rate is chosen.


Now in ASUS ROG GPU tweaker tool, (I'm not familiar with it) click default settings. Go to default stock settings on CPU and RAM as well.

Is it still happening?

Curious, What's your voltage setting for that ASUS 580 DCUII? Low voltage isn't good either if not set right.

Also what's your GPU temps when it shuts down? Are monitoring this with GPU-Z?. I believe your ASUS tweaker should have this function. IF things get hot on your GPU, that might be the culprit.

Did you set your fan with manual fan settings or is it being done on auto default fan settings? Did you yourself set your fan settings manually?

IF not, your problem is the default auto fan settings really aren't good for any brand of GPU. It never quite cools them enough. Hot temps can shut down graphics like that in gaming or just windows.


In the end it may boil down to ASUS tech support, walk through.

You may have to call ASUS. 1-812-282-ASUS (2787) Monday - Friday, 7:00am - 6:00pm PST; Saturday - Sunday, 6am - 3pm PST*

RMA Request Form


This is just some places to start before ending up with ASUS who a lot of the times runs you through this before allowing for RMA. Cards can go bad on occasion for all vendors, it just happens.

Let us know your results.

PS Edited to add....If you have an extra cheap video card PCIe hanging around it's one way to see if it happens or not. Cheap video cards can be had for $35. If it shuts down during just normal desk top usage, you'll know it's not your GPU having ruled it out.

Question: Does this problem only happen on the desktop? Are you sure it never happens in games?

Before I help you to change voltages, I would like to know your stock voltages.

please run gpu shark (or something similiar)
and tell me (or upload a screenshot) of all your voltages (VDDC) and gpu MHz. i'm mainly interested in your voltage at 50MHz, 405MHz, and at max.

Can you test the card in another system?
I had this since i got a gtx 470 and lived with it sometimes thinking it was fixed but after a few days it would black screen.
As many have said in that thread a different motherboard solved the issue.
i can vouch for that as since i moved to intel from amd i have had no random black screens at all wink.gif.

Because the card works fine on my cousins rig. Just like my cousins GTX 470 did not work on his mobo but works on another friends mobo. These cards seem to not work with specific mobos.

I am aware of that thread and my GTX 580 works fine on my cousins rig. He is using the very same mobo that gave him problems with a GTX 470, which in turns works on his friends rig. The card is fine. I actually only started getting the problems after two weeks since building my new rig. I cannot be dealing with changing the mobo and rebuilding Windows to get this card working when its just pot luck whether it works or not. It's crazy how so many people are having these problems and there has been no solution for 2 years!
