Is my GPU going bad?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
or am I on acid?

I'm getting strange bars and shapes when I run visually intensive games.

I can see through walls, doors, and other sprites. But the distracting colors and shapes out weight the benefits.



I have the latest drivers installed and the fan on the GPU still works.

At idle it's at 89F.

Edit: the amount of crazy shapes and colors doesn't change over time, it stays the same.

The newer the game they crazier it is.
But old games like Quake1-2 and doom just have a few shapes/bars.

wow that's a pretty outdated card I would say, huh? It does seem like it's going or maybe it's overheating. I think usually when a card overheats it usually shuts off or shows some artifacts, like it's being stressed too much. Did it just started doing this, or what happened (software wise) before you noticed this? 89F is only about 30-31C so it doesn't sound like it's overheating at all, but maybe something fried.

The artifacts you are describing are usually caused by heat. Seeing that your temps aren't that bad, then your card is soon passing, if not dead already.

Thanks guys!

Replacing it wouldn't be too bad, they go for $70-$100 bucks today. I remember when they were 500 back in 04'.

Something must have failed on the card, but didn't lead to a total failure.
