I got this card in March of 2017 and it worked fine until this February, when I powered the system on for the first time in 2 weeks (it had just updated) and I started experiencing some very extreme constant discoloration of the screen (artifacting?).
Following this, I rebooted the system twice and still the same problem. I removed the graphics card from the motherboard and the computer worked fine on the integrated graphics.
I tried reinstalling the card and still had the same problem.
Also, I installed another 8gb of ram (2x4gb) last year before I installed the EVGA GTX 1050 Ti. What’s weird is that the system is still allocating almost 4 gigabytes of RAM to the integrated graphics. Not sure what I can do about that.
AMD A8 6500 Processor
MSI MS-7778 JasmineR
16GB RAM (8 came with it and I bought 2x4GB from bestbuy)
EVGA 450BT Bronze PSU (from Amazon)
I was also thinking there might have been something wrong with the PCIe slot since the PC was a prebuilt purchased in 2014.
