Weird artifacts with 560 GTX

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Alright, this is creeping me the **** out. I bought my computer this summer.

OS: Windows 7
Motherboard: Intel i5-2500k 3.30 ghz 4 cpus
8 GB Ram (forgot what kind)
Geforce 560 GTX


Anyhow. I opened up Doom (yeah, doom, GZDoom actually, in OpenGL) and for the first time ever, today, I get some small square popping out for a split second at random places in the screen, constantly. There was also some slight terrain anomalies, part of the terrain screwed up, random slopes that weren't supposed to be there.

I opened up Unreal Tournament, and same square glitches. No terrain anomaly seen yet, though.

And now, I'm getting random yellow stripes (a pale yellow) in random places, even on this page (where you write your posts) there's yellow where there shouldn't be, MSN has random stripes of yellow too. And they follow the page/program, not the screen, if that matters at all.


I'm not seeing any abnormal temperatures, everything is normal. I have never even tried or considered overclocking anything, and I never did. What is going on?


EDIT: I checked in paint. There is one color, 248-248-248, that appears yellow, even though it shouldn't, and some around that range appear yellow, though if I go up to 250-250-250, its white again...

Sometimes it just happens, I have had a few die on me in a matter of days.
What brand is the card? And have you had any crashes, bsods, or just plain shutdowns?

Alright well your set if it does turn out to be a dud, EVGA has a lifetime warranty...assuming you registered it. But don't give up hope yet...there's a few simple things you can do to verify what the problem is be it drivers, software, or hardware.

Have you seen any of these artifacts during boot or in the bios?

try raising the voltage a little maybe your card needs more power than what EVGa put

Nope, artifacts in games only. Color weirdness only in the OS, I updated to the latest driver and it fixed just that, at least.

Then you probably have nothing to worry about. It's most likely not the card then, have you only tried playing older games? Or do you get artifacts in others?

No, didn't think of that..

Just tried Crysis 1 and well, hey, no anomalies, no artifacts, nothing. Everything was fine.
