Is my graphics card on its way out? - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

Hope i am posting this in the right place.
Basically over the last few weeks my computer seems to lock up for a couple of seconds and the screen goes slightly yellow and gets some horizontal lines. Not sure if this is the graphics card or not but i have updated my graphics drivers and done all important windows updates.
I have also ran malware bytes, spybot search and destroy and a full virus scan.

Also not sure if its worth mentioning but if i look on the performance tab on task manager i don't have any spikes or anything abnormal taking memory or CPU usage.
Is there anything else worth trying?

All help appreciated!

try and load your computer with your onboard graphics..take your gpu out and plug into your motherboad..that will tell you if its your gpu or not
