Blue Lines- New computer not working! Please Help!!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Today I just built my first ever pc with the help of my friend. The Specs are:
i5 3570
8gb Patriot 133mhz
Sapphire 7870
Coolermaster extreme 2 525w
500gb HDD
AsRock B75 mATX 555
We built it, Installed Windows, and everything was working well. Uninstalling Bloatware, Installing Catalyst and Drivers, etc.
And then we decided to test the graphics card with Unreal Tournament 2004. I went to the settings, put Textures on Highest, and then the screen went black. The system did not respond, so then we just restarted and tried again. Then when we tried to run the game again, screen went black and nothing happened. We restarted, and then when we logged on, the screen turned to Blue lines everywhere. This kept happening with multiple reboots. We thought this could be either:
-The power supply not being enough to supply the graphics card,
- Or driver issues with the graphics card.
What could it be? If it is the power supply, what wattage should I get? If it is a driver issue, what version should I install? Please help!

It does sound like a lack of power though, and I generally recommend at least a 650 watt for any single card setup. I also recommend a Corsair or OCZ power supply, as I've had outstanding service out of both.

That PSU should be plenty for that GFX card. Have you tried to install the GFX card in another system?

Sounds like a GPU issue to me, try with another card if possible. The PSU should be plenty thumb.gif

If there are now blue lines across the entire screen at all times it sounds like the video card was defective and needs to be replaced.

I am a little curious how you built your own PC and still had to remove bloatware.

I was thinking the same thing... the only things I remove when I fresh install Windows is gadgets, games, and IE...

By bloatware I mean all the unwanted software the motherboard installed such as FAST LAN and INTEL SMART BUSINESS, etc.
