Red and green dots after boot up - Page 2

post #11 of 18
It can increase stability at times. But since you're not an overclocker you may want to stay away from it tongue.gif. But really I would try that or under clocking the Core and Mem clocks by a tad bit and try it out.

Right, I'll jot down that point as well.

By the way, I did the 720 preset benchmark and scored 3511 average. I couldn't see any artifacts whatsoever.

Preset: Built-in 720 preset
Score: 3511
Temperature Min: 45
Temperature Max: 65
CPU Min temperature: 50
CPU Max temperature: 61
FPS: 58
For this benchmark, I was running EVGA PrecisionX

Don't be alarmed as to why my min temperatures are so high, I live in a country where the weather is slightly cooler than the corona of the sun.

If you had no issues under that much stress you also may want to put it under stress with a video game if you have any. The synthetic loads aren't as hard and straight to the point as stress testing. After that I'd say your good, if you ever have the issues again and you can't clean it up try the voltages or underclocking as I stated. Also you may be able to plug in another screen and run it with out issues if you have the issues again and it is something with voltages.
Thanks, yodazb

Try a different monitor. You might have a bad cable connection inside that can produce dots or lines on the screen due to cross-talk.

Right, thanks! I have just bought Crysis 3 (even when I knew it isn't as awesome as Crysis 1). I'll complete it and see if things are better now.

I've used my PC only for one purpose - playing video games. For eveything else, I use my Mac with OS X (in my opinion, its just much better). But I don't know what's happened lately, I think I don't like playing games that very much (may be I'm growing up). So I guess I'll sell my PC as it is in a few months.

You said I could plug in another screen (on another port, I gather), but I did that already (sort of). I had also changed port for my current display when the problem occured. It didn't work! So I'm guessing it's not a port problem and even if I install another display, chances are it'll show the same thing (am I right?).

Can this happen on a DVI port as well? I thought it was a problem only for VGA ports.
If this happens again, I also have a separate cable (VGA port based) that I can connect to my display (my display has two ports - DVI and VGA, so...). That should tell if it's a cable problem.

I'm talking about running 2 monitors. When I am overclocking sometimes my GPU will be unstable and I lose display on one monitor and the other it's fine. If I unplug the HDMI from the first one that's not working then the lines move over to the other screen. So try dual screens at the same time. BTW thanks for the rep thumb.gif

Hmmm, I may be able to borrow a display. 1 more point to remember. Thanks.

Yup, no problem. Good luck man.
