Desktop Graphics Acting Up

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My current desktop is making quite a fit. I currently have 2x MSI GTX 970 graphics card in SLI mode and that was working fine for awhile, then all of the sudden I'm getting random shutdowns and restarts.

No bluescreen nothing, it just shuts down and boots up again. I've tried reseating the GPUs swapping them round, nothing worked and what's worse is now that I've swapped them round it won't detect the GPUs anymore, it detects them in the bios but as soon as it gets into Windows it doesn't get recognized. The display outputs are plugged into the graphic cards output.


Please help!

are you overclocking your system in any way?

If you have any overclocks set I would recommend setting up your system back to default just for troubleshooting purposes.

I would recommend running your system with 1 card just to verify that the problem is actually with your SLI setup and not another component. cuz the problem might be with the ram or what ever, but you're suspecting the problem is with the card.

I would also check what type of reports the system is giving you in the event viewer. go to event viewer > windows > system > filter out error and critical logs only.

I hope this gives you an idea, Good luck.
