Video Card issue or Motherboard?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey all! So I feel like I am getting the warning signs of an impending component possibly breaking but I am not sure and not sure how to go about testing to find what is wrong.

Alrighty so I have an EVGA 670 GTX FTW (2gb model) (1 Year Old) and an Asus P8P67 Pro (2 years old) motherboard.

Events:
Woke up at 6am Day 1:Turned on computer followed by 1 long beep, 3 short beeps. Reading the manuel it says that it is a VGA not detected error (monitors did not turn on)
Shut off computer and same beeping happened.
Put my video card in second PCI slot and computer turned on and worked.
Shut off computer and reseated my video card in the original PCI slot, computer turned on.
Played a few games and noticed ALL my games are running like garbage.
For some reason my Nvidia Drivers vanished and I had to reinstall them, reinstalled them and restarted the computer and bam everything works fine.

Woke up at 6am Day 2: Computer worked fine
8 hours later got home from work with same beeping issue as before.
Reseated video card and worked fine.
Checked my Nvidia drivers and they did not uninstall themselves, everything remains fine.

Day 3 Today: Nothing YET has had an issue.

I am worried that either my video card or motherboard is about to crap out on me but I am not sure what is the problem. I lack a second video card to test anything with. But I did notice that I appear to only get the beeping issue after a long period of time (8 hours) with the exception of today where it works fine. Before I jump the gun and buy a new motherboard/cpu or video card I was wondering if anyone had any advice or maybe a test or something I could try out.

Thanks for any help in advance! cheers.gif

Sometimes cards just require a good reseat after being installed for a while, especially heavy high end cards. I had to reseat mine recently because they had slipped out by a millimetre after 1 year of use. It can also take a few seats to get a good seat!

Part of my was thinking that may have been it. I'm just a bit over paranoid of if something is wrong.

Debating on if I want to buy another 670 for SLI or just replace it with a 770, hmm.

Save for a 780 or wait for the HD 9970.

Just wanted to toss in an update for anyone who cares, but it has not acted goofy in a week. So I guess it just needed to be reseated... /shakefist!

Ok I know this is a bit old BUT it has happened AGAIN. And the only way to fix the issue is fully take out my video card and put it back in but NOT tighten the screws all the way...and literally as I am typing this both my monitors flickered and I got a display driver crash...GRR

Does this sound like a video card or motherboard issue?
