Graphics card dying?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I think my 4770 may be dying, I woke up at almost 1 pm, looked at my computer, it froze right around 8 AM, so I shut it down, restarted, 1 long beep, right around 1 second long, nothing else, so I switched it back to pci-e slot 1 and it works fine now, i switched it to the second slot after about a month ago 2 times the monitors just stopped working and had to restart computer...is this a sign that the graphics card is dying? I have a backup 3850, thankfully, and the 4770 should be under warranty with XFX still (i still have the original box and everything, too)...any help?

XFX have good RMA service if not mistaken. But try a process of elimination. check to see if the ram might be loose (ya it can cause it too). Get another vid card and try that. and take your card now and slap it in another pc.

if the vid card works fine in another PC its either the mobo might be bad or ram issue. If you slap your card in another pc and it doesnt work then the card is bad.

A side one too. the PSU could cause this too. check that as well.
