Is my GPU Dying?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I dont know whats going on but its driving me crazy...

Lately my Comp just Freezes. And i am forced to reboot it. Even then ill reboot and the screen will just lock up.

But there are times when i reboot like 4-5 times and it will work for a while.

Is that a sign that my GPU is starting to go? I cant think of anything else? And its starting to drive my crazy.

its a EVGA GTX 295

rig is in signature.

That will normally attributed to high load temperature. Try to clean the heatsinks and fans GPU & CPU. Over long period of use all sort of dust are collected there.

Also, check each stick of RAM. Boot with only one stick if one of them is faulty. You could also run memtest86+ to check for error http://www.memtest.org/
