Issues with GTX 560 Ti

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi there;

Having just built my first computer last Sunday, I've been having some problems with my video card. It's been running fine with no problems; playing games, 3dvantage, etc.

However, today, it started stuttering until red lines continuously appear on the monitor. I also cannot log into Windows 7 without the monitor failing to respond and remaining a black screen. So far, I've tried reinstalling drivers (on disk supplied, 266.66, 270.51, etc), reinstalling Windows, etc. Anything else I should do?

Or is it RMA time?

3 quick tests, usually i'm more detailed but I'm busy.

Try a different monitor with the same card.
Try the same monitor on the integrated card, assuming your motherboard has one.
Try a different card in that same pc with the same monitor.
Try every combination of what I said above to be as detailed as you can.
Run a Memtest to see if your ram went bad, which I doubt, but it's possible.

Sure others will reply but I have to go for a bit but those are the best tests you can do right now.

Well, with the same card it's now refusing to POST; going into a cycle of restarting itself every 15 seconds or so ._.
(This is with doing nothing for the past 40 minutes; I haven't changed anything as of yet)
I will be trying a different monitor/video card once my sister is done with studying on her computer (Looking forward to college, eh )
No integrated graphics, it's a P67 chipset

I'm starting to get a bit scared seeing alot of other people with EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Tis dying, because I have an EVGA one as well. Mine hasn't died, but it runs very warm under load, up to ~85C-86C or so (and that's at a measly 850MHz/0.95V too!). Yeah, yeah, they can apparently take up to 100C, but I saw somewhere where somebody had one that started artifacting, and permanently, once it reached ~94C. That's not making me feel safe.
