GTX 680 FTW Crashing Computer *PLEASE HELP*

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
So a little over a week or two ago I purchased a GTX 680 FTW. Since I began using it I experienced downclocking issues, and crashing so I got a new motherboard. Same issue persists. Now, I can't even boot into windows without getting a black and green screen that flickers uncontrollably. I've tried testing both sticks of RAM, I've cleared CMOS, I've tried different PCI-E slots, two different motherboards, two different power supplies, and I've also reinstalled my Windows 8. Can someone please advise me what to do? I cannot even access windows to install drivers or anything. Thanks in advance!

Seems like your card is faulty.

I just installed ubuntu, but my card is not crashing there. Why is that the case if my card is faulty? Seems strange to me. Thanks for the answer though. I should have added one more thing. Sometimes I have issues posting whether I have my GPU plugged in or not. There seems to be always some kind of excuse. Whether it is the DRAM LED lighting up, or a a Graphics Card error beep code. Seems strange don't ya think?

Yea, did you try out another HDD? If you have a spare HDD, remove the current one you have, install windows on the other one and check.
One more thing, check that all your cables inside the case are seated well.

Before you purchase the 680, did you have another NVIDIA card installed?

Edit : it looks like you were re-installed windows, though...try different output and different cable first, second maybe update your mobo bios.

Are you seriously running that raidmax 630? upgrade that to something decent and it should fix your issue.


Edit: Recommended Power Supplies

He said he tried two different power supplies in the OP. Good point tho. OP, what power supplies did you try other than that raidmax?

I don't have another HDD available. I'm not currently running the raidmax, I have a Seasonic x850, but whenever I try and update my rig, it won't work. The graphics card will only output to single link DVI. I've even tried downgrading to windows 7, but when I install the grahphics driver, the whole thing ceases to boot.

If he is running a Raidmax as his main I can only imagine what the backup is. rolleyes.gif

Edit ok have when you say you downgraded you mean you went from windows 8 to windows 7 or did a fresh install of win 7 and did you have this problem from getgo or it just started later on?

Fresh install, and this has only started since I took apart my build and began running it as a bench.
