freeze on startup and noise, gpu problem?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Its done it a few times now, nothing to do with cpu overclock as it happened at stock speeds cpu, the gpu has no overclock to it other than a factory boost, ill start up the pc, then after going into windows everything will lock up the curser the loading windows etc a second in and a buzzing sort of noise will come from the speakers, anyone have a clue if its a faulty gpu?

IM running:

4670k @ 4.2ghz

Msi z87-gd65 motherboard

8gb (2x4) avexir mpower RAM

MSI gtx 760 2gb GPU

thanks in advance

Try booting from your mobo and remove the GPU (might need to enable IGPU from the BIOS. If it boots ok, remove all Nvidia drivers using something like driver sweeper and then plug the 660 back in and reboot (enabling the GPU from the BIOS) and then reinstall drivers.

If it does it after, it does point to a failing GPU but if it does it with the IGPU, it looks like a corrupt windows.

could it also be clashing software, i have audio off nvidia and mobo and a soundcard? So i fresh installed drivers but chose not to have nvidias sound, also got rid of onboard sound and stoped a few programs from going on when i boot.

thanks for reply

See you have an overclock. Try to bring voltage up or clock speed down. Doubt its your GPU. Bring CPU speed to factory speeds and see if it starts up.

PC freezing on boot will not be a GPU issue. Those who have overclocked for a while, knows you may get a few good boots out of an overclock, than the 3rd will freeze. It happens. Move GPU to a different slot, bring factory CPU speeds down, add a little bit of voltage, and see where your at.
