Graphics Card Problems 8800gts OC

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I am having a problem with one of my graphics cards. I have not overclocked them and have kept them clean and had them in my case since I got them. They are 2 Nvidia 8800gts oc 320s. The one that is bad is causing my screen to go red or brown when I test it after about 5 minutes of running it in Vista. It almost acts like its overheating?? The other runs fine. My power supply is more than enough to run them disregard my specs, I've had a new psu for a while. It was running SLI fine till a couple days ago and started having probs. How long does BFG tech take to RMA a card? My temps on both cards are 46 degrees c. Is it a bad card? Had them for 2 months.

Try them individually with the side panel off and a desk fan blowing on them. That will be sure it is not the psu or the heat.
If you psu is multi-railed, is your load balanced?

I tried to set the fan using rivatuner, no help. The rails are balanced, just weird that it would all the sudden have trouble. I have tested both indivdually, same 46 degree temps out of both cards. Have tested both in both pci express slots, the one works fine while the other doesn't. I also put the bad one on the bottom slot and the good one on the top. In device manager the bad one doesn't show up. The other way around with the bad one on top, both show up in device manager. My powersupply is a BFG tech 850 watt. Its got me stumped. ???
