My graphics card is being a "derp"! [help]

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi, so i have some problems with my graphics card crashing on me. On some games like Battlefield 3, Assassin's Creed 3 and Far Cry 3 my GPU just crashes. I can play from 5 minutes to 5 hours and then my games just freezes and drags me out to the desktop with my game still running in the background. I can still hear like game-sounds from the game until i close the program manually. I have tried to change settings from highest to lowest which didn't help anything at all.
This problem is really annoying because some of the games that i play the most crashes the most.

I should probably also mention that i also notice some freezing in some games. (1-5 sec freeze)

Have you tried reinstalling the drivers? Do a clean sweep of them and reinstall. That doesn't work, try reseating it. Could POSSIBLY be a sagging issue (look to see if it's sagging in the case.

Out of curiosity, are your RAM sticks in the correct slots? I had the same issues because my RAM sticks weren't in the correct slots (if you gave 2x8GB sticks). It was back when I wasn't familiar computers redface.gif

Sorry, just had to ask about the RAM. I accidentally did that. Just want to make sure. thumb.gif

Is there, by any chance, a way to test with another GPU? If it isn't apparent in the other GPU, then it can be the 580 you have. If it is still present, it could be a whole 'nother ordeal.
