GTX 295, constant red light crashing

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys!

Well, I kinda runned into trouble.

My GTX 295 has suddenly started to crash in my newer games (Portal 2, The Ball, Amnesia etc).

It usually didn't crash in Amnesia nor The Ball (and that's with my current PSU).
When it crashes it doesn't blink with the right light nor beeps, it's a constant red light, and my monitor is saying "no DVI device detected".
My card doesn't seem to get that hot, I once checked temps right after the crash and it only showed me 75C.

Right now, I kinda have a feeling it's my PSU that has started playing some dirty tricks, might be something to do with the 12V rail.

Oh yeah, my PSU is a Engeron 1000W, so unknown I can't find any information about it... But good news is I already ordered a better one.

So, do you guys have any ideas, or is it might my 295 that's dying on me?

Also, right now I'm downloading the newest drivers from Nvidia's website.

Any help is much appreciated!

Define:that hot.

Reduce everything back to stock. Run stability tests, try another PSU.

Troubleshooting is the removal of any possible variables and seeking out the problematic part.

With "that hot" I mean it's not running at 90 or 100C, so I can't really see how heat should be the problem.
But that of course doesn't mean I won't check it anyways!

(A little update)

Sadly, after I had changed my PSU, I quickly discovered that the problem still existed.
My GTX 295 is dead.

Well, I've just ordered a new GPU.

Thanks for reading guys, and thanks for the help.
