GTX 280 again...

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
From my post before: THANK YOU MOONORB, very valuable help.

Anyways, I found out from my first gtx280 that it was having overheating problems, so I sent it in right away to be replaced. As it was being sent in, turns out i also had 2 faulty slots in my motherboard as well, so I sent that in also. <--- . I got my video card and mother board around the same time roughly 2 or 3 months ago. They worked great until now. The problem first started occuring when when i would log in to my windows 7 start up screen and it would full screen artifact. Sometimes it would be pink, green, blue, and an assortment of other colors. I got lucky one time and got in and immediately down clocked my video card. It was working but i couldn't play any games without it artifacting again. I slowly got more bold and started upward clocking towards my normal clock. <--- correct terms? O.o. Now it is at normal clock and i can play crysis and any game normally, but sometimes when i log in it full screen artifacts again. One thing I found unusual was that when I played Counter-Strike Source, it would play crystal smooth for about 10 minutes, then periodically after 10 minutes of play, the screen would freeze but I could still hear people talking so I knew it wasn't my computer freezing. I have absolutely no clue what is happening. Anybody want to take a stab?

if it keeps artifacting get a voltage tuner and increase the voltage notch by notch until u see no more artifacting. Sometimes it's just a minor voltage problem <--- happened on my 285

55 is ok, i guess it is the drivers, try overclocking or downclocking it too and test.

Yeah I solved it, turns out everytime I played a game, my fan wasn't going up according to the temperature of my card. what a fail. Thanks guys. Oh yeah and the artifacting went away at start up I'm pretty sure because apparently I had 2 drivers installed at the same time somehow lol.
