Is my card faulty?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I have an old nvidia card that I have been using for more than 3 years. 9800 GT with 1 GB VRAM. I don't usually game, but I tried to test in 3DMark Vantage for comparison with friend's much newer computer. I tested friend's computer then I installed 3DMark Vantage from the same installer on my PC. OS is Windows 7 64-bit SP1.
Every time benchmark run failed to initialize. Then I googled the error and updated Systeminfo to version 4.20. After that benchmark started but crashed in the middle with error "Device Lost". I updated the driver version to latest WQHL version. Still the crash. Then I downclocked the card via MSI Afterburner and this time the run was successful and I could see the final points. I re-run the benchmark and it crashes again in the middle of the run with "Device Lost".
I tried FurMark and MSI Kombustor burn-in for 15 minutes but no errors were found during the run. rolleyes.gif
Is there anything left to re-test my card with? Is my card faulty and I need to replace it?

Temperature is the same as it was before the card became faulty. While idle it's 40°C and while gaming or benchmarking 65°C. In FurMark stress test 85°C. Temps were the same the day I purchased the card.

Any ideas?

Run other benches at stock clocks to see if it's a hardware failure.

I ran Unigine Valley at stock speed and it passed successfully. The image setting was Ultra with antialiasing enabled. The max temp was 57°C. Now that's interesting. rolleyes.gif

maybe a driver problem or too highly overclocked.

Didn't you read my post? The card has never been overclocked. I said in the OP that I don't usually game, so what's the point in overclocking the card if I only used it for Windows GUI and watching videos?

Can you test the card in another computer with the same scenarios you described above?

then if you use it for watching videos and normal tasks, why do you care about benchmarks? they just stress your hardware, I'd say your problem is with the application itself, not the card, if you ran valley successfully, there's nothing to worry about.

I ran 3DMark 11 with my 680 and cpu overclocked a while ago, I had an issue that turned to be CPU overclock unstable, same "device lost" error, my point here is that almost anything can make 3Dmark crash, not only the gpu, like the other member suggested, run games, or another bechmarks, if not problem is found you are ok.
