I just recently started having an issue with my graphic card ( I think). It happened yesterday while running some applications in the background (League of Legends, FIreFox). I tried googling driver issues, black screen issues, etc. I have no idea what the problem is other than it is coming from my GPU. I've cleaned (duster thingy) the GPU and computer, and swapped the GPU to the other slot.
On regular boot: I get a black screen before the login screen, after the windows logo appears. I have to hard reset it at this point.
On Safe mode: everything works. I'm able to log in, but it doesn't have access to internet and etc.
On uninstalling the GPU Driver: I'm able to log in, but the screen flashes white after logging in, before going to my desktop. My "Theme" (personalization) comes out with High Contrast instead of the usual aero theme. The Driver automatically updates to the latest (220.127.116.1111) after logging in.
Sometimes there are colored marks on my screen
On Repair startup: Sometimes the repair works, and after rebooting I can log in normally, but it freezes not long after that. Other times, the Repair fails.
BSOD - 0x000000000116, 0xFFFFFFA8005E3F010 and 0xFFFFF8800F1B55C8
GTX 470 (Not overclocked)
Driver Version: 18.104.22.16811
Please let me know if this is in the wrong section. I just really could use advise on how to solve this issue. Thanks in advance.
