Is my card dying?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Okay this just started a few days ago but when I play BC2 after about 20 min of playing, my game freezes and goes to a white screen and all I am able to do is alt tab out of the game and close it in task manager.

Once I alt tab out of the game the performance of my card decreases dramatically, for example when I try to play Napoleon Total War after my bc2 crashes in a white screen I get 20-30 fps when I usually get 50 to 60, this problem goes away once I restart my pc.

Also if I play BC2 at dx9 settings I usually get 30-60 fps at all high with only 60% of my card being used according to evga precision, however if I play at dx10 I get 99% usage and the exact same fps will albeit better gfx.

I have the newest drivers and not sure if my card is dying on me, some other component, or if its a problem in BC2.

WSOD (white screen of death) is a common problem with BC2. I had that problem too with both BC2 and MOH so I think it's a Frostbite engine issue.

Here's a few things you can try:
1. Increase TdrDelay
2. Rename BFBC2Game.exe to BF2.exe
3. Uninstall Forceware, clean with Driver Sweeper or Driver Cleaner and then reinstall latest driver
4. Get better GPU VRM cooling

None of them seemed to work for me so I reinstalled Windows, stuck some RAM sinks onto the GPU VRMs and it's only happened to me once in the last month.
